Once again, everyone is welcome to play, and you may join at any time. I think this round will be the most fun and entertaining round yet.

SCORING:
1. A reminder: EVERY correct answer gets points. It's really worthwhile to answer every question.
2. Each question will be worth 50 points. The first to answer correctly will get a +5 bonus, the second person to answer correctly will get a +2 bonus. These bonuses will hopefully act as "tie-breakers." There will be no points deducted for wrong answers.

FORMAT:
1. All answers must be submitted through PM. Answers posted to the thread will not receive credit.
2. You may answer in PM as many times as you like, but only your last answer will count (right or wrong). If you want to take a wild stab at it in hopes of getting in first, go ahead. You can correct it later if you choose.
3. Hedged answers will not receive credit. You can ask for clarification in this thread or in PMs (I may or may not answer), but other than that, you'll just have to take your best guess.

THE ROUND #9 CATEGORIES ARE...
NAME THAT CITY
NAME THAT STATE
NAME THAT COUNTRY


Further details...
NAME THAT CITY
and NAME THAT COUNTRY will have the same format: the picture will be accompanied with a continent clue (e.g., "A city in Europe" or "a country in Africa").

NAME THAT STATE; for the sake of brevity, "state" in this instance means a U.S. state or a Canadian province or territory. I'm debating clues for this category; should I do so, the clue will likely be the time zone (e.g., PST or further west, MST, CST, EST or further east). Some will be easy, some will be hard.

Each category will have eight pictures, for 24 total.

Round #9 will begin on Friday, February 1st.

Questions? Clarifications?

There will not be. I took that section out on purpose. :cool:

The people that are willing to commit to the game and log on once a day deserve to win. :)

How often will the clues be posted? Once a day? All at once?

I don't think I have a choice ... :lol: I'm in even though I said I wouldn't be here anymore (which was an obvious lie at the present time since I'm still here.)

I'm in. If you post them in the afternoon like a little before this or something that would be very awesome but other than that I'll give it a shot yet again.

Once per day. On weekdays they will likely be posted in the afternoon/early evening (4-5pm). However, I reserve the right to post them earlier or later if it looks like my schedule will not comply. On weekends they might be posted at any time (basically, whenever I have a second to log on and post).

Alright that's fine. Weekends I don't mind when they're posted so ok I understand.

Ooh, I see this is going to be a tough game. :cool:

Only one correct answer so far (out of five answers). Still a +2 bonus available.

This is proving far harder than I anticipated. Future clues will likely be a bit more descriptive (don't despair!).

Correct Answer: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

I've decided upon a little twist. I'm not going to post the scores after every question. :cool: Instead, I will post them after questions #6, #12, #18 and #24. I will be keeping a spreadsheet that I will upload at the end of the game which will show a question by question scoring breakdown.
