It’s Friday before Gameday, and that means it’s time for the Gameday on Rocky Top Guessing Game. If you’ve played before, you know the deal, and you can skip to the questions below.

If you’ve not played before, read on.

Earn points with knowledge and skill

First, submit your answers to our three questions below. Questions may have different point values, so keep that in mind and choose wisely.

Nobody else will see your answers unless you share them, which is part of the fun. So, once you hit the “Submit” button, your answers will be displayed for you and you’ll be prompted to copy and paste them into the comments section so we can all see how we stack up against each other.

That’s really it for the stuff you can control.

Shrooms, Shells, and Bolts, oh my!

Now for the Mario Kart-style chaos. Stuff can happen to you during each week’s tabulation of the totals. Stuff like this:

Mushroom. Plus some yet-to-be-determined number of points. For now, there will be two of these per round, randomly distributed.

Banana. Minus some yet-to-be-determined number of points. For now, there are two of these per round, randomly distributed.

Blue Shell. 25% chance each round of one of these babies getting launched. Once launched, it starts a countdown and blows up the leader(s) when it hits zero. Players blown up by blue shells lose some yet-to-be-determined number of points.

Thunderbolt. 25% chance each round of someone in the bottom half of the standings getting this. When received, it’s automatically released, and the person who used it gets extra points.

We’ll check for specials after tabulating each question. In other words, we’ll tabulate the results of the first question, re-rank everyone, check for specials and their effects, re-rank everyone again, and then move on to the next question until there are no more questions.

The Game Maker: There are no prizes but bragging rights, and so I reserve the right to change the rules as we go. I’m planning some changes this year, and they might involve using football terms instead of mushrooms, bananas, etc., and may involve a bit more chaos.

Let’sa go!

  1. Submit your answers to our three questions below.
  2. Click the “Submit” button.
  3. Copy and paste your answers in the comments below.

Good luck!
