Here we are at last, this new forum game is about to begin.
Its aim is to entertain you first, and offer you yet another way to appreciate Star Wars http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

It is question-based, as many games here. You will earn points when answering correctly, and the winners will eventually be offered prizes http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
Stay tuned for extensive rules.


But there is something rather new with this game.
It is going to be coupled to a website, or rather a page that will, as the game progresses, compile all the information the players will have uncovered with each answered question.
You won't have to follow this external page to play the game, but you will find some clues there if you do http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

In the end, after the game is finished, this page will keep on living as a reference.

If you want to know more about the "transitions" this game is all about, check the <font color="blue">Star Wars transitions (http://bouncing-frogs.fr/Transition/transition.html)<font color="black"> page.


See you all soon!

<font color="red">The transition game - Rules<font color="black">

Context
Transitions are these visual effects you can see between certain scenes in all SW movies.
This game is all about these scenes, and these transitions.
All seven movies (The Clone Wars theatrical version counts as a movie) will be used in this game.
For more info about transitions, check this game's sister page (http://bouncing-frogs.fr/Transition/transition.html)

Questions
I will post questions on this thread regularly (but with no specific day or time).
All you will have to do is answer on this thread.
Points will be awarded to the first one to answer correctly (or the first two, first three ... it will depend on the question)

Prizes
A ranking and medal system will reward the players with prizes of increasing value, depending on the medal (bronze, silver, gold)
<font color="yellow"> <font color="black">Gold medal, won after earning 20 points. You get a small gift.
<font color="gray"> <font color="black">Silver medal, won after earning 10 points. You get a trinket.
<font color="orange"> <font color="black">Bronze medal, won after earning 5 points. You get a postcard from Toulouse, France.

There still is the rumored Diamond medal, of course
<font color="white"> <font color="black">Diamond medal, is it really true?

Here's the first question!
The first three ones two give at least two correct answers will get one point.

Here are 4 scenes: A, B, C, D
linked by a transition to four other scenes: 1, 2, 3, 4

Give the correct order (which scene comes before which?)

Here's the next question.

There are two specific transitions based on sweeping arrows that only appear once each in the same movie.
Here's what they look like (check the transitions page (http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/transition.html#transitions) for more details, and a hint)
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_ARROWR.png http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_ARROWTB.png

For one point, can you name the movie and the scenes where these two transitions appear?

Jorbex
08-17-2009, 07:07 AM
Right! The movie is Empire Strikes Back, and the transitions are as follows:

Arrow from right to left, immediately after Rieekan says "Prepare for ground assault".

Arrow from top and bottom, after the "You have failed me for the last time, Admiral" "Thank you Lord Vader", etc. scene.

Jorbex

And speaking of Ozzel, is anybody reading the Clone Wars comic? There's some excellent characterization of a certain Major Ozzel, all cowardice and incompetence (not to mention clumsy and stupid).

New question, and not an especially easy one ...

Normally, the transitions used in each movie are more or less distributed so that there are not too many repetitions.

However, there is one movie where a transition is used multiple times in a row.
And there's more: this transition is not used anywhere else in that movie.

I'm asking you, for two points:
- What movie is it?
- What transition is it?
- How many times is it repeated? (hint: it is more than 4 times)

And another hint: this transition is used towards the end of the movie
Additional hint, here (http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/transition.html#statistics)

Again you found the correct answer http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_CIRCLEE.png
The "closing circle" transition is used at the end of RotS, five times in three minutes!

The "sweep from left" is used seven times indeed in ANH, which is a lot.
But the maximum number of times it is used in a row is "only" three

Sometimes the time between transitions is very short, as here for example.

This scene

No worries there Satka, I knew it cut over to Theed at night.. had a 50/50 chance.

I'm doing better at this than I thought, considering I'm pulling from memory.

Well this question is now over, let's see the PM I received:

Jorbex answered
The Phantom Menace: K - T5 - E
Attack of the Clones: N - T1 - H
The Clone Wars: J - T6 - D
Revenge of the Sith: B - T7 - I
A New Hope: L - T3 - C
Empire Strikes Back: A - T4 - F
Return of the Jedi: M - T2 - G

shazbazzar answered:
I. K T5 E
II. N T1 H
III. B T7 I
IV. L T3 C
V. A T4 F
VI. M T2 G
TCW J T6 D

JediShua answered:
Scene K - T3 - Scene E
Scene N - T1 - Scene H
Scene B - T7 - Scene I
Scene L - T3 - Scene C
Scene A - T4 - Scene F
Scene M - T2 - Scene G
Scene J - T6 - Scene D


This was pretty close. Jorbex and shazbazzar had all but one (TPM transition was number 3, not 5). They each receive 3 points.
And JediShua provided a perfect answer! That's 4 points for you.

And there are bronze medals for shaz and Shua! And a postcard from Toulouse, France http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif


Congratulations to all of you http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Once I had all the others, I guessed at TPM.

Yes, I couldn't resist adding a little Jawa mischief in the mix http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Transition 5 was not part of the answer, but I never said all seven transitions had to be used http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

<font color="red">SPECIAL QUESTION<font color="black">
Here comes a special question in this game!
It will be devoted to The Clone Wars movie solely.

<font color="blue">INTRODUCTION<font color="black">
The Clone Wars ... the latest theatrical addition to the Saga is so different from the movies, being a "cartoon", having such a different pace and scope...
Transition-wise, TCW ranks second among all seven movies. It contains 44 transitions, which is no small feat considering the movie duration is about an hour and a half!
(take look at the chronology graph (http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/transition.html#chronology) for a comparison between movies)

<font color="blue">THE QUESTIONS<font color="black">
Q1: The chosen one
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_CLOSEH.png
There is a transition that only appears in TCW, and nowhere else in the Saga. It is the "Horizontal closing" one.
Can you tell between what scenes it can be found?

Q2: The circle is now complete
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_CIRCLEI.png
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_CIRCLEE.png
There are two "circle" transitions: the closing and the opening one.
And in TCW, each one is only used once.
Can you describe the two moments in TCW where these transitions are used?

Q3: Blink and miss it
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/img/icon_ROTATION0.png
The "radar" transition is only used once in TCW
Between what scenes?

Q4: The longest scene
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_27_1.png
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_27_2.png
This scene is the longest one between transitions.
How long is it? (I'll accept a 10% error)

Q5: The shortest scene
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_04_1.png
http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_04_2.png
This scene is the shortest one between transitions.
How long is it? (I'll accept a 25% error)

Q6: I know that one!
A http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_38_1.png
B http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_05_2.png
C http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_05_1.png
D http://bouncing-frogs.fr/transition/tcw/TCW_38_2.png
There are memorable scenes with transitions in TCW.
Maybe not as many as in the movies (they are not the same kind of animals).
These images are taken from two transitions from TCW. Can you reorder them? (which comes before which)

Q7: You and me
Anakin and Padmé each appear in several transitions.
Can you count them?
Wait, I'm only looking for transitions where the starting image:
- Contains either Anakin or Padmé
- Doesn't contain anybody else

<font color="blue">THE RULES<font color="black">
- Answer all seven questions with one PM only
- You only get one chance, so choose wisely!
- There is no time limit (I think I'll leave this question open for quite some time)
- You will get points even if you're the last one to answer
- Each correct answer will be awarded with one point (there are therefore 7 points to win here)

<font color="blue">CONCLUSION<font color="black">
Phew!
After answering all this, I think you're all set concerning TCW!
Now bring on season two!!!

Oy! What a fun question. I don't know how long you'll have it up, but I know that my blu ray player will have to be one of the first things I unpack this weekend, because I am itching to watch the Clone Wars now. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The question will be up a long time I think. I will be away for 2 weeks in early September, so consider this your "holiday homework" (we have such things over here http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif)

Hi there!

The big "Clone Wars" multi-part questions was posted a couple of weeks ago.
So far, I only received one answer ... I guess this is far from "all too easy", isn't it? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

Anyway, I'm reminding the brave players out there that there's still some time left.
Let's say ... one more week, and we're moving on to the next questions.


And speaking of moving on, I have a little announcement.
A tease, really.
There is another game in the works. Something entirely different from the trivia we're used to.

There will be no pictures to stare at
No encyclopedic knowledge of the Saga will be necessary
You won't have to spend more than one minute to participate
...
And it will have momentum ... lots of it! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

... I'll post update on the new game completion here ...
For the moment it little more than a dozen unconnected ideas (game mechanics, graphics, duration of rounds ...), but I think I will reach a playable state before the live action show starts http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Well people, I'm finally back from vacation (and an excruciatingly long work phase http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif)

Three players answered to this long multi-part question, and let me say: you are good!

Jorbex provided 6 correct answers, JediShua and shazbazzar scored five points each!

Which means we have two new silver medals here. Shua, shaz ... it's trinket time! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif
