    You've heard me go on and on about this for months, now.

    The time is finally here.

    I've completed working on the challenges for this race, and now I need all of you that are interested to join on in. :)

    Requirements

    -Anyone involved with this game needs to understand that it will last anywhere between 4 and 5 months of playing. There will be breaks during the race where we can all just chill out, but it will be a bit of a long haul. If you aren't online enough and have a very busy schedule, this game likely isn't for you. It will be just as involved as, say, the SURVIVOR: TOON ZONE games have been in the past. Like those games, I'm intending to run the game on a weekly basis, where each "leg" of questions and travels will be posted once a week.

    As this game, more than anything, is focused on speed and time, all teams must complete their challenges before we can start the second leg of the race. I don't want this game to drag on, so please, don't sit around and do nothing - don't play the game if you think you "might" like it. I need people to be committed. I can't run the game if 10 people drop out after two weeks - it wouldn't be competitive in the least if that were the case.

    -I am HOPING for 24 people to sign up, minimum. More would be great - I could eliminate some of my "non-elimination rounds" to make room for more people, and it wouldn't be a problem.

    -Honestly, I don't know how difficult my challenges are - they could either be really time consuming or quite elementary. There will be a "practice" leg of the race prior to its official start, though, just so everyone knows how it's going to work, in theory.

    -Anyone with a love of cyber travel, trivia questions, learning about the world they live in, and competitive sorts with that do-or-die drive should apply. :D

    Signing Up

    -To start the race, everyone must be partnered up, just as on the show. If you and a buddy have alread formed a team, you may keep it; make sure to say so when you "apply" to the game in this thread. (Note: Both players on this team must sign into the thread, just to make it official, and show me that they are, in fact, committed.)

    YOU DO NOT NEED A PARTNER TO SIGN UP FOR THE AMAZING RACE. If you sign up and don't have a partner already, I will randomly pair you up with anyone else signing up for the game that is also partnerless.

    The first 24 people to apply to this game will definitely be in the race; if there is more room beyond that, we will see. Apply early, if you want to get in!

    That's all I've got to say at this point. I'll leave this sign-up sheet open for responses for the next ten days to two weeks.

    As they say...

    ...and they're off!

    -Tim

    I'll go for it, I lack a pertner however. I work pretty hard and am online most the time lurking around here, so you won't have any of those times where your going "Where the hell is this guy? We have a leg to finish!"

    I believe Dalek said he'd be my partner, but dunno if that's a-go-go or not.

    Oh, and Tim? Is living in a different time zone (i.e. NOT IN AMERICA) beneficial or the opposite

    Sounds like a good idea to me! I don't think different time zones will harm anything, seems to me like having a player from one country and one from another could even be an advantage. ;)

    There is no official advantage or disadvantage to playing this game in different time zones. It all evens out in the end.

    However, as I live in the Pacific Time Zone, if I ever mention any times when a challenge must be completed (etc), I will write it in PACIFIC time. (To make it easier, I may also note the time in EASTERN, as well.)

    As far as I'm aware, I don't know of anyone leaving outside of these time zones - even ol' Javeman down in Chile is in Eastern...or Atlantic...one of the two. :p

    In a future thread, I'm going to ask everyone to submit a short bio on themselves - their name (or username/alias), their location in the world (city, state/province, country), and so forth. It'll help to add to the global feel of the game. So far, from what I see, we have three countries represented: Canada (me!), Chile (Javeman), and the USA (virtually everyone else). If I overlooked anyone, feel free to chime in. :)

    Again, things are shaping up nicely. Once I get home I'll tabulate how we're doing and in the mean time, you guys keep signing up and partnering up and mingle with your fellow competitors.
