Oh oh! I want to help with Anime Trivia... I was at the Sakura Con's trivia thing... and no offense to the people that helped make it... but it kind of sucked >.< I mean I liked the lay out and stuff... but all the questions were circled around about 4 animes only....  I think that the questions should be wide-spread all the way from Rurouni Kenshin to Hyper Police!

It didn't help that some of the answers were wrong, and some of the questions didn't match the answers in the slightest. ^.^;
No, I'm not insane.  I'm just... happy.

I was originally working on You Don't Know Jack About Anime for the first Kumoricon, but I ended up being too swampped to complete it.  I was going to hold some sort of screening to get the 4 contestents, that way they at least had a decent amount of knowledge and could answer a generous portion of the questions.  I might see if I can dig up my notes on that and hand those off to someone.  It was a fun idea.

You might do well to imitate COO and their screening for the Dating Game.  They schedule a screening and have it put on the Con schedule, on the morning of the game, and anyone who wants to try can show up.  There is no audience to the screening, only would-be contestents.  They pick the most likely types (largely those who will be confident and interesting to have onstage) and make them the bachelors and bachelorettes who get to read off the questions.

You could put them through a sort of Tournament of Knowledge and use sample questions to weed out all but the best, put the most impressive of the runners-up on a backup list in case a few finalists don't show up, and make the showdown between the finalists into the public, hyped event itself.  ^_^

*nods*  

Though, we're going to try to get COO to come to the con.  we'll see... maybe if we tell them BakaZoku is coming, and they would be wooses if they didn't come, they will.  ;-P  

I think I'll start calling them CO2. Colorless, Oderless, and it's the gas you give off after breathing and using useful stuff in the air.  Oh, and it causes the greenhouse effect.  :-P  Kidding, they're funny... need to meet them in person sometime though.

I think a screening thing would be great it would be kind of like *first round* then the top 10 people with the most points can stay and go over another set of questions... then the top 5 for the actual game.  Then... uh the game could have things like Life-lines and those type of things, perhaps... =^.^= "Who wants to be an Otakullionare"  xD lol  that was silly *is hyper today too...but not as much*

I think a "You Don't Know Jack" format would work the best personally. Complete with the second and third round "screws" to use.

Basic YDKJ format is that a host gives the a contestant three catagories to choose from (usually very weirdly worded so that it's hard to tell what each catagory is about) and then everyone is given a question to answer. Normally in YDKJ, you are given a multiple choice question but I think that you can skip that part.

As for the screws...... in rounds 2 and 3, each person is given one screw where if they are asked a question that they think someone else doesn't know the answer to... they can use the screw to force someone else to try to answer. If they are incorrect, the person who used the screw gets the points. If they are right however, the correct answer gets the points and the person who used the screw loses points.

Not sure how you could pull off the gibberish questions or the final round though. Hmmm...... maybe YDKJ format isn't such a good idea after all.

Yes, that would be very cool. I would volunteer if it weren't for the fact that I am an idiot when it comes to anything but basic computer knowledge.

I suppose that would be a cogent paradime...... though I'm not sure how much the Jeopardy people would appriciate being compared to YDKJ. LOL

I personally think that YDKJ is far more entertaining than Jeopardy, especialy if you get a host that's really into it and loves to screw with the contestants as much as the real hosts of YDKJ does.
