The INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE trivia contest...
The BIGGEST and BADDEST OF THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought some questions were so difficult, that I put this post up a WEEK EARLY!
****The deadline for entries will be Sunday, October 12th at 9 PM EST, 6 PM PST.****
Scores are determined by the number of correct answers. BONUS questions do not subtract from your score, but add to it like extra credit. There are 100 questions, and 20 bonus questions; therefore, a PERFECT SCORE IS 120, but you need at least a 100 points and be one of the top 5 scores to win a prize.
NOTES TO FOLLOW:
1.) You must direct your Emails to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), with the answers CLEARLY next to the question numbers.
2.) No breaking up columns, please -- just one long column on the left side.
3.) I CAN NOT ACCEPT MULTIPLE ANSWERS TO ONE QUESTION. Sometimes people put a variety of answers next to a question, as though I'm supposed TO GUESS which the answer is. Please, make sure your answers are concise or I will not be able to accept them. Also, if a question asks for something specific (correct spelling, a FULL NAME, etc...) you must answer it that way or it will not be accepted.
4.) If you are uncertain as to a question, ASK. If I find it appropriate, I'll help you out by being more specific.
5.) You must include your FULL NAME, Email address, and telephone number along with your answers in order to possibly win a prize. This information is solely for purposes of my contacting potential prize winners at the end of the contest, and will remain in strict confidence. (You can still play the game without giving me this information, however, and your score will still be posted.)
6.) If you RESUBMIT your answers to me again, you MUST INCLUDE ALL THE ANSWERS. No "partial" lists will be accepted. Also, PLEASE NOTIFY ME THAT YOU HAVE RESUBMITTED YOUR ANSWERS by placing "TRIVIA RESUBMISSION: (Your name here)" in the subject heading. THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PREVIOUS POSTINGS TO ME, SO BE CAREFUL TO INCLUDE ALL YOUR INFO. EACH & EVERY TIME YOU SUMIT!!!!
There is only one prize available to each of the five winners (see below for details). Scores will not be tallied until AFTER OCTOBER 12, giving more people an opportunity to play the game and do research. If by October 12th there are no prize-qualifying scores, then I will extend the deadline an additional week (to October 19) so you can do more research. In the event of a tie between the different qualifying scores (the top five-place winners with scores over 99), I will email those people several more questions, and the one who answers the most correctly will be deemed the given place winner. These people will have ONE WEEK from the date of my Email (TBA) to respond to these questions. There can be up to FIVE WINNERS (no more) who may receive a prize, AS LONG AS THEY ACHIEVE A CERTAIN MINIMUM SCORE. What does this mean? Well, if someone comes in 1st place, but doesn't have the minimum prize-winning score of 100, they can not receive a prize. On the other hand, if someone comes in 6th place, even with a prize-winning score, they can not receive a prize because there can only be five winners. The FIRST PLACE WINNER will get the FIRST grabs as to which prize they wish to claim, the SECOND PLACE WINNER the SECOND, and so on...
Like the RAIDERS & TEMPLE trivia, many of these questions can not be answered by watching the films alone. Rather, it takes a collective knowledge of a variety of INDY materials to answer all correctly. In some cases, different INDY materials may contradict each other slightly (i.e.: the MASTERBOOK RAIDERS catalogue had some minor date errors when compared to those of the film script and novel), so I will take either such answer into account when this happens (this especially happens when a specific year is concerned). I know these questions may be frustrating, but they are DESIGNED TO BE HARD. In fact, I had to look up many of these things myself before writing the questions down...so don't lose heart. Oh yeah -- this is supposed to be fun, too. Even if you don't win a prize, you should have a good time...
And good old Indy would be proud of you.
LIST OF PRIZES
Up to five winners may receive one of the following:
1. *THE HOLY GRAIL replica, graciously donated by Indiana Magnoli's company, PITA productions. A clay replica of the prop used in the film, with gold paint/leaf, etc...
2. RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE STORYBOOK BASED ON THE MOVIE. Hardcover, large picture book of the film. Condition is fair: The spine is open (though the book is still held together well) and the cover page has a "To Charlie" signature...this was donated to me by my friend named -- surprize! -- Charlie. Fair condition.
3. INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM. (RARE!) A softcover book featuring over 60 large color photos from the film. Not to be confused with the novel or the oversize hardcover storybook. Good condition.
4. INDIANA JONES & THE LEGION OF DEATH -- FIND YOUR FATE #6, by Richard Wenk. Softcover book of the FIND YOUR FATE series (like "choose your own adventure") with Indy. Fair condition -- slightly beat up, with a few ink scribbles on the back.
5. INDIANA JONES & THE LAST CRUSADE: ISSUES #1 and #2 (of four) of the MARVEL COMIC BOOK SERIES. Good condition. Does NOT include issues #3 and #4.
*LEGAL NOTICES (to cover my butt):
I am not associated with PITA productions or Mr. Magnoli in any way, so I can therefore assume NO responsibility if any difficulties in regards to the "GRAIL" replica prize (#1) occur. Mr. Magnoli has expressed to me via Email his willingness to provide this replica for the contest, so any questions or complaints about this prize must be directed to him. THEREFORE I CAN NOT GUARNTEE PRIZE #1. This is not to offend Mr. Magnoli, certainly, but I must say this for the record. And for my own protection. ALL OTHER PRIZES (#2-#5) I WILL PERSONALLY GUARANTEE. Their condition is described above. This trivia contest is for entertainment purposes only. I do not profit from, or collect any compensation as a result of, the posting this game. I am not associated with Lucasfilm, Ltd., nor with the producers/distributors of the INDIANA JONES films or merchandise. This means that I am simply doing all this crap for fun.
