Bungie Trivia Masters Revealed!
As you know, we had two Bungie trivia contests this year. One was held live at FanFest last Thursday and the other was hosted online over at HBO
. The online version was substantially harder but the FanFest contestants had the added pressure of a live audience and the blazing spotlights. Who would win the title of Trivia Champion? Read on for the details and the final results... The FanFest Challenge
The FanFest trivia challenge faced off 11 contestants in a double elimination multiple choice competition. After about a dozen questions, all read by Jen Taylor - the voice of Cortana, there were only two people left. Each contestant had one strike against them and it all came down to one answer. The final question appeared on screen - "Which Bungie employee lives the alter ego of Danger Boy
?" If you're a regular of Bungie.net, you should immediately remember an interview a while back with our own Chris Carney, aka Danger Boy. Both guys picked a different choice and we knew that one of them would emerge the champion. In the end, it was Djof
who answered correctly and was crowned the Bungie FanFest 2003 Trivia Champion! Congratulations to Djof on a job well done! The HBO Challenge
Over at HBO, several hundred of you registered and took the test but only one can take the title of Trivia Master. This year's online version was brutally tough with the vast majority failing to get even a 50% score. Special thanks goes out to poenadare
and company for their help in providing some of these tough questions. The test was closed and the scores were tallied and one man emerged victorious over all others. That man is... Thomas Langdon! Way to go Thomas! Even though he got first place, he scraped by with 36/49 correct answers. It's particularly impressive to note that Thomas beat out our own Evil Otto
who got 32/49 correct. In recognition of this accomplishment, Thomas will receive a nifty Bungie prize pack as well as one of the new upcoming colored Xbox controllers
Thanks to everyone who entered and be sure to read and study your Bungie lore... you never know when you'll have a chance to show off your Bungie trivia knowledge!
