To welcome in the new year we are happy to present a game of forum Trivia!
Prizes are provided courtesy of a very generous donation of Refined Metal by our own BlueInGreen!


The Details:
Beginning soon, I will randomly post trivia questions in this thread. The first person to correctly answer the question will receive 1 Refined metal in TF2.
If the first correct answer comes during the flash period, within 2 minutes of the question being posted, the winner will receive double the prize, 2 Refined metal in TF2.
No more then one question per clock hour will be posted. The contest could last for several days.


The Fine Print:
Each forum member may only win one prize during the trivia contest.
Any editing or deleting of posts in this thread will result in a disqualification.
Winners may donate their prizes back into the pool to keep the contest running longer.
<Placeholder for any other rules we think of later.>
