    Re: Hacker Jeopardy Suggestions/Questions/Comments

    so.. I think the message is:

    CONTESTANTS) No. Only DC Controlled Alcohol.. it's part of the game.

    AUDIENCE) *shrug* .. it's possible something may be implemented for physical security reasons, but by Goons and not the contest; no such measures have been defined yet.
    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

        Lemme get this straight... you can max out your "beer points" after hitting a special number of beers for your team?
        So, after "team whatever" drinks a total of 20 beers, they no longer will gain points if they drink more?

          doesn't this conflict with the humperdink award?

            The total will be most likely be less than that, but yes. This is to level the playing field a little while still ensuring entertaining drunkenness.

              No, because the first team to cap out their limit wins the Humperdink award...

                  My REAL reason for visiting this thread is to ask about the apparent increase in team size from 3 to"3-4". I'm thinking this is just so that the 3-player teams have an alternate player, but I want to confirm this. Thx.

                      Yes, we're looking more at around 10 beers per team per round.

                        Nick, how about that 4th teammate question?
                        Are the teams expanding to 4 members this year?

                          Teams can enter a 4th person--however, teams do not have to be 4 people. 3-4 is suggested.

                          And the number of beers a team is allotted has nothing to do with the number of people on the team. If someone wants to fly solo, the 10 beers are all them.
