Rules Of The Game
I'm going to try a new approach to blogging here in 2005, basically mocking my idiosyncrasies.
How to Play :
I am always making obscure cultural references, most obviously in my blog titles. So this year, I am going to award points to the first person to place a particular reference. Each person is allowed one response with one guess for each reference. Extra guesses will be ignored, but the only guess. I promise to ignore you personally.
- Origin of a Blog Title = 5 points
- Origin of a Reference within a posting = 8 points (5 for the source, 3 for the searching
- Particularly Difficult References = 10 points (PDR's are up to my discretion, including whether or not I choose to reveal a post contains a PDR.)
- Bonus Questions = See Market Value
- No points will be deducted for incorrect responses.
Current scores will be listed under the Blogger logo in the right-hand column. By venturing a guess, you agree to have your name and score listed, however, in order to list your score, I will need your name therefore anonymous postings will be ignored, though not the anonymous poster.
The order of responses will be verified by the date & time listed in the comment box. Understanding that there will be some of us who will want to actually respond to the post and not just play, I am going to enable Blogger's comment system for normal commenting (since it will also email alerts) and will use a new commenting system for the 2005 Idiosyncratic Cultural Reference Game beginning with this post.
This game will end Dec. 31, 2005 at 11:59:59. Token prizes will be given to the top three finalists. In the case of a tie, an emailed list of five questions will be sent to the tied contestants, each question counting for one point. The tied contestants will have twenty-four hours to respond. The score of their correct responses will be added to their final score, hopefully creating a winner.
Good luck! (Oh, and there are two interior references in this post to get you started.)
