Description:
For the holidays and to celebrate the new year, let’s have a quick bonus round for the Trivia Grand Tour before the regular competition resumes! The timed event is set to end at midnight GMT on Sunday, January 3rd. This bonus round has 26 trivia questions all sourced from the Star Wars movies, though in hindsight one of the answers isn’t spoken in any of the movies.

Link to the timed event: https://tc.emperorshammer.org/timetest.php?testid=441910

Placement will be determined first by the number of correct answers and then by time, so the most important thing is to answer correctly but you’ll also want to answer as quickly as you can to edge out the other competitors.

The top four will receive Iron Stars:
  • First place: IS-GR
  • Second place: IS-SR
  • Third place: IS-BR
  • Fourth place: IS-BR
In addition, any participant that answers 18 or more questions correctly will receive an IS-BR.

As usual for the Trivia Grand Tour, the number of correct answers each participant provides will be added to their ongoing participation totals which lead to Iron Stars at certain thresholds. More details about that in https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3103.
