Greetings everyone.

First, if you have not seen Hexpardy! from the charity stream, you can rewatch it here: http://www.twitch.tv/hextcg/b/553526061?t=489m

After a great response, Neo and I think we can make this an ongoing event, maybe once a month depending on a few factors (such as interesting questions, categories, and guests). So, for this to work, we need a few things from you.

1) Participants - If you are capable of using skype with a webcam and would like to be considered as a future participant, leave your details here. We do not have dates set quite yet, but we will start contacting people when we get close to having our next episode. Also, our plan is to have the winner come back each time, so keep that in mind if you expect to do well.

2) Answers/Questions - I have started a database to compile lots of questions, but we are only two people and we will miss some of the more interesting ideas. Are you a huge lore nerd that has lots of great, nuanced questions? Do you know weird interactions that may make for challenging questions? Do watch every stream and know unique things about the streamers? Do you have all the dirt on the CZE staff and want to populate my CZE personnel topic?

If you have good questions, in all ranges of difficulty (we need easy questions too), please fill out this form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1XiveFcn4Kmn-J6lMgRkDzR-6Re562ubJzj3JutTfydc/viewform?usp=send_form) or PM me those questions here on the forums with their answers (do not post them on the thread as we want them to be somewhat of a surprise). Also, if you have ideas for categories that could work for 5-6 questions, send those along as well. The "Common Link" category from the Charity Stream was a fun category, so if you can thing of innovative categories, please do send them my way. You do not have to have all the questions for that category, but if you do, that is even better.

3) Feedback. Is there anything you like or dislike about the game? Anything we should change? Too much guest banter? Too little? Should we do two boards or is one board sufficient? Let me know. Either post here, or do it through a PM (if you don't want to argue with people). We welcome criticism and suggestions and want to have a strong, ongoing series if we can make it happen.

Thanks for your help,

Zubrin and Infam0usNeo

You know I am in. I have to redeem myself.

If possible you could do audio/video answers. Maybe you could get some Hex developers involved with video ones.

I was thinking in order to have a wider variety of categories you can do ones that might even have similar questions to ones you already have. You can do a "Blood" category that has questions about blood lore, blood flavor text, or blood cards in general. You can do "Ardent" and "Underworld" as categories. "Actions" "Troops" "artifacts." This way you don't necessarily need to have 6 flavor text questions every game.

Edit: I figured this was vague enough to just post here instead of PM.

Fett, you're fine.

To be clear, the categories are not static. Some we will reuse sometimes. We can make it more and less specific as well depending on our needs or how theme-y we want to be.


Matt/Fett, thanks for the ideas. Keep them coming.

I'd like to see categories such as "The pen is mightier" which covers the Hex novel, "Therapists" for cards that gain life or prevent damage, and "An album cover" for questions about Hex music.

It's no fun if everyone is doing well, Matt. Just look at shows like QI :P You were certainly more entertaining than the others.

I am definitely interested in participating. The only reason I don't use my webcam for my streams is combining it with running Hex, OBS etc. my computer isn't happy. If it's just skype and webcam, should be no problems! :D
