Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 1, Day 1

Post by rjaguar3 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:45 am

Here we go with the 2018 Summer Hiatus Challenge.

Please make sure to read the rules and declare wild card eligibility in that thread.

Each game thread begins with 4 points:
  1. Announcements (this post)
  2. Questions
  3. Template for responses
  4. Reserved for answers
Please make sure to post your responses in the game thread and spoilerize your responses (add a ] after [spoiler and [/spoiler on the form). Please don't delete any lines from the response template (it breaks the parser).

The scoring site for the 2018 Summer Hiatus Challenge should be up tonight.

Let's get started.
