    Detour 1: The next pit stop is in China.

    Who is the credited Producer of this specific game?[​IMG]

    The game of course is Shanghai, one of the first Mahjongg games developed for the computer and widely ported elsewhere. The writer is shown on the front page. Brad Fregger is the credited Producer.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Detour 2: This week our contestants go to the top of some high buildings and repel down. What is the admission price to the highest observation deck in a building in China and how high is this?

    The tower is the Jin Mao Tower, with an observation deck on the 88th floor. 340.1 metres high, Admission is 50 rmb

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fast Forward: Rebecca mentions wanting to go to Shanghai ever since seeing Madonna and Sean Penn in Shanghai Surprise. Name the films that have been nominated in the Best Foreign Film category from China throughout the history of the Oscars.

    Two people attempted the FF, both had the same correct answers. Ric wins based on a faster time.

    Ju Dou 1990
    Hero 2002


    Films from Hong Kong (Farewell my Concubine) and Taiwan (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) have also made the list.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Results from Week 9, Q5 (who benefits from the next non-elimination leg) were also calculated as being a question for Leg 10.


    PRIZE THIS SEASON IS A 20 GB APPLE IPOD.

    Its showing up now. Probably you were unlucky enough to start during a time when connection to the bellsouth servers was slow.

    Doing a refresh often reloads the pictures successfully.

    The problem with doing a refresh though is that is clears out all of your previous answers, so you have to start over at the top of the page answering everything again.

    Well, do a quick view of the page to make certain a picture is loaded (its very obvious) before you start filling out the form. ;)

    13 hours till deadline.

    FYI: Next week is the season finale... a 2 hour episode. As such, the questions will be much more involved and take a bit longer than usual (although not quite as grueling as last game). Like last time, the questions will be divided into 2 separate legs, each with its own start/stop time and treated as if they were separate weeks.

    Just for time planning purposes, will they be required to be answered back to back, like they were last season when after submitting leg 11's answers, it took you to leg 12's? Or will they be posted as two separate legs and can be answered seperately from one another?

    Also, the confirmation page says that you are still looking for people to join up to get the free IPod. I don't remember seeing that page after I usually submit my answers but then again, I may have and just ignored it. Either way, I thought you already had it.

    Yes, just like last time it will be a back to back run from a single start.

    Also, the confirmation page says that you are still looking for people to join up to get the free IPod. I don't remember seeing that page after I usually submit my answers but then again, I may have and just ignored it. Either way, I thought you already had it.

    I've only posted this on the entry confirmation page once before, I believe on the 1st or 2nd week of the contest, so no, you didn't miss it.

    I already have a 20 GB Ipod, which if necessary will serve as the prize and I'll buy myself an upgraded model (I find the 20gb a bit limiting for my music collection). This ipod is used of course, but is still 4th generation and in good shape.

    I was hoping however that I'd have another free ipod to give away by the time the contest ended. Thus the winner would have a mint condition ipod with narry a fingerprint on its shiny silver surface. Thus I'm offering the $10 incentive for those who join up.

    You realize how tempting this makes it to yield you? To see how far you can drop? :D

    Perhaps you should not play the remaining two legs to improve your position.

    Just be sure to get the FF next week and all will be well.

    Danny, just out of couriosity, why did you make the possible penality for selecting None for Q3 +2? Not that it matters, just wondering.

    Just to make you folks think twice about selecting it.

    I didn't know for certain the answer would be None, but at this point in the game its a logical choice and the previews only showed two events, one of which was obviously the roadblock.

    Even though I don't have a snowball's chance...

    It's been fun so far - still trying to figure out how I fell from 3rd place at one point to 20+ days behind...

    I'd say your big "mistakes" were in weeks 6-8. You gained a lot of time those weeks, as did many others. However, you answered slower then the next person up, so you never were able to catch up to the next closest person. Many others were, helping to reduce the overall weekly gain. For instance, if you were to answer faster then bgilmore this week, you would be 12 days closer.

    Final results are in for this leg.

    cdru had an awesome week, finally using his precontest Poll option and thus moves his score into negative territory. As a result, Ric tagged along due to his fast forward, and likewise is in good position for the final two legs.

    finniganps moves into 3rd place, benefiting from the Leg 9 question about who was next to not be eliminated.

    Two remaining legs for the final episode, a final fast forward during one of them, and a large field of available points, still put this game in anyone's hands. Final questions will appear tonight.
