Hacker Jeopardy


The infamous Hacker Jeopardy organized by DevNull “The Pitboss” is back!!!! Below are the mechanics for the first ever Hacker Jeopardy in the Philippines! ROOTCON Hacker Jeopardy is adopted from DEFCON USA, but done Pinoy style (of course)!

Game Show Cast
Host/Emcee: DevNull “The Pitboss”
Score Keeper: Hacker Jeopardy Babes
Foxy baristas/drink-pourers: Hacker Jeopardy Babes

The Mechanics
The objective of the game is the same as that of the popular (Double) Jeopardy game — to win (duh!). Questions are posed as “answers” and the contestants must answer in the form of a question. Contestants earn points for each correct “question”. (Confused? Google for “Double Jeopardy”, you dork.)

In HJ, 3 Teams will put their l33t (and general) knowledge of a wide range of Topics to the test from 5 different Topics/Categories with 5 increasingly difficult “answers” per Topic. Each “answer” is worth a certain number of shot-glasses/glasses of a particular liquid metal (beer, wine, rum, gin, absinthe, etc.). The easiest “answers” will be worth 1 shot-glass/glass and the hardest worth 5 shot-glasses/glasses (shot-glass or glass, depending on the type of drink).

The HJ Game is 2 Rounds of chaotic drinking and consists of 3 opposing Teams, with each Team composing a maximum 3 elites and minimum 1 dweeb. A randomly chosen Team will get to choose a category and “question” at the start of each Round. Each Team will then have 30 seconds to press the buzzer and provide the correct “question”. E.g., if Team A buzzed first and answers correctly, the opposing Teams B and C will have to down the drinks worth that “answer”. If Team A answers incorrectly, Team A will down those drinks as penalty. As a bonus, any of the opposing Teams B and C can still buzz for a chance to answer the question if the 60-second time-limit is not yet reached. E.g., if Team B buzzed and answered correctly, Team C will have to down the penalty drinks. If not, then Team B downs their serving of pride.

The penalty drinks in the First Round (aka Liquid Metals Round) will consist of beer, wine or rum lightweights. Contestants will brave the Second Round (aka Heavy Metal Round) with cocktails from hell containing gin, vodka, tequilla, absinthe, etc. There is a “Double Jeopardy” question in each Round that is worth a surpise prize 😉

There ya go, guys. It all goes downhill after the first “answer” is popped. The Team who is most sober (i.e., drank the least number of shots/glasses) at the end of Round 2 wins the Game.

Prize:
iPod Shuffle + Black Badge
