Ninjas will be brutally murdered.

This is Duel II. This is a continuation of Duel. There are going to be few signups, let’s say 8, as all the players remaining from Duel are already playing.

Signups will close some time Saturday night PDT.

This is a trivia game, but with a twist. Each Duel consists of two players, who each begin the game with 10 poker chips, which each have the value of £1,000.

Contestants will be asked multiple-choice general or not so general knowledge questions each with four possible answers, one of which was correct. The players are asked to select the answer they believed to be correct; if they are unsure, however, they are permitted to cover up to all four answers with their chips, to ensure that they have a chip on the right answer when revealed. Once satisfied they had done so, each player will confirm their answer. If a chip is placed on the correct answer, the player will get that chip back, but will not regain the other chips if they placed multiple chips. If a player runs out of all of their chips, they are out of the game. Players have 48 hours to answer a question and if they do not in this time, they will be eliminated; however, each player also has ONE accelerator which allows them to rush an opponent for an answer, giving them just 24 hours to answer. Each chip placed on a wrong answer is eliminated and adds £1,000 to the jackpot, which begins at £100,000.

When a player wins a duel, they will pick from three other contestants of who they want to face. If they win two duels, they will have a chance to leave the game with 10% of the jackpot. If that is not taken and the player survives three duels, you can leave the game with 20% of the jackpot. If that is not taken and the player survives 4 duels, you can play for the jackpot.

All questions will be answered in PMs please and you MUST post in the thread signifying in some way that you have sent me an answer.

If you are using an accelerator, this must also be posted in thread. If I find that anyone cheats (by searching for answers on the internet, in books etc), they will be banned from the game. The winner will be the person with the biggest amount of money after the game is over.

A major difference from Duel is:

You MUST post in the thread signifying in some way that you have sent me an answer. This is so that your opponent knows not to use an accelerator. If you send me an answer and do not post in the thread signifying in some way that you have answered, and your opponent uses an accelerator, you will be fined 4 chips, and they will get the accelerator back! Also, at the expense of 4 chips, you may destroy your opponent’s accelerator!

I think I have all the rules down there, if you are unclear of anything, please do ask. Now go forth, and get duelling!

Oh, and watch out for trick questions :)

I’m guessing (because I can’t be bothered reading) that I don’t have to resign? And thanks for continuing this.

You’re listed under the list of players…so I take that as a no.

Everyone is welcome to sign, even if they already played.

I already signed up everyone who was still remaining in Duel.

The amount of signs allowed was 8, but I’m feeling nice, so I’ll let you join.

Considering that the signup slots are full, signups are closing early. I’m going to start soon.

MAKE SURE TO READ THE PARAGRAPH AT THE END OF THE OP

I have checked the profiles of all the players who are remaining from the original Duel, and according to their Latest Activity, a couple of the players have not logged on in over a month, so I have removed them. They were Drovoxx, FabulaUltima, tracymirkin123, gamelover13, and fartwall.

OK, so we will start now. The first duel is random! The all powerful RNG has determined who gets chosen. PMs are being sent to the contestants.

Duel 1: LouWeed vs. racefan12

Both users have 10 chips and an accelerator. The jackpot is £100,000.
