I was thinking...A music trivia, brain-teaser, quiz-bowl, type of thing is just what this forum needs. Perfect during those seasonal 'posting brownouts'. Let the games begin!
Okay, to make this go more smoothly we need to agree on some ground rules.
1- At any given moment, only 1 person is allowed to pose questions and/or new material. That person is said to be, "in control of the board".
2- The person who first
correctly answers the most questions, wins the game and the right to pose the next set of Q's.
3- Google-ing is allowed. However, try to come up with your answers through honest thought, not just a reflex google search.
4- All posts in this thread should remain mostly on topic...mostly
5- Use of Pianosociety bandwidth for posting audio clips is allowed (as per Robert). Bit rates should be limited to 96kbps.
6- Any copyrighted audio should be limited to 30 second clips. Posting audio clips for this purpose does not constitute copyright infringement.
7- After the end of each round of Q&A, audio clips should be deleted by the poster, to save space.
8- In the event of a tie, there shall be a tie-breaker question posted by the one in control of the board. The person who first answers the tie-breaker question correctly wins.
9- At any time, the winner may give control of the board to anyone else.
10- Quizzes may cover any topic. However, at least half of each round of Q's should be about classical piano music.
11- The questions may be posed in any form: textual, audial, visual---the more variety, the better!
I'll be working on a set of audio clips for the first round...this could take a while...in the meantime, let's make small talk.
Has anyone seen the new episode of South Park? The Easter Bunny...PEEEEEEPS!
