I hope we get more players in this besides the five from the first session. Let's get TRJ and RJF to play. :)

All right, so today kicks off Session 2 of the tournament.  As with the first one, I'll post one question each weekday until October 7th, and that will be Round 1.  The ten questions of Round 1 have randomized difficulty and randomized money amounts (the various amounts are $100, $500, $1000, $2000, $3000, $5000, $7000, $10K, $15K and $25K) which get added to your bank, but to match with the actual Millionaire, there's another twist this week: one question will be doubled in value for anybody who gets it right.  So if you get all ten Round 1 questions right and get really lucky with the "Double your Money" placement; you could get to Round 2 with as much as $93,600 in the bank.

Round 2, aka Classic Millionaire, will be played on October 8th for anybody who makes it through Round 1.  The game follows the same rules as the original format, with four progressively harder questions that can boost your winnings to $100K, $250K, $500K and $1 million.  Good luck to everyone, and let's begin!

Start of Session 2:
Purple Parrots Fan: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
PurpleParrot319: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
The Headless King: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
The Silver Monkey: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
JTH1: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining

During Round 1, you'll have until the next question is posted to answer each question.  Here's the first one:

Quote

A: The Sower
B: Sunflowers
C: The Potato Eaters
D: Starry Night

Starry Night is the only Van Gogh painting I know of, so D is my final answer.

It is D.  It's nice when they start out easy, isn't it? ;) Even better yet; the question was actually worth $15,000 right off the bat; so that's added to all your banks already.

Standings after the first question:
Purple Parrots Fan: $15,000 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $15,000 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
PurpleParrot319: $15,000 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
The Headless King: $15,000 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
The Silver Monkey: $15,000 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
JTH1: $15,000 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining

I'll tell you right now that the "Double the Money" question will be the fifth one in the set (September 30th, that is).  Because of my class schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the next question will be coming tomorrow evening rather than right after the show ends at 1, so keep an eye on this thread for it.

All right, so all six of you are still in the game after the first question, with three lifelines left and $15K each.  So far, so good, but let's look at the second question:

Quote

A: Graduate from college
B: Buy a home
C: Have a baby
D: Retire from a job

Yeah, C's the only one that makes any sense to me, too.
