Horror Trivia Game 2016

 Charred Remains Horror Trivia Game 

October 2016 is little over a month away and the excitement is already building for all horror fans favorite holiday...HALLOWEEN.  

For the last five years I've hosted a month long horror trivia game. Each week players competed for a weekly prize package filled with indie horror Dvds, posters, t-shirts, etc. The game was started to give my readers a chance to see the indie horror films I was reviewing and a fun way to learn about things related to horror movies/books spanning last fifty years in horror.

The game developed a following of repeat players who have said, they look forward to October each year to play the game. 2015 had over 1500 people competing for the prize packages estimated values up to a $100 a box. Items in the packages were donated by indie actresses, actors, directors, other horror fans and distribution companies whose films were in the boxes. 2016 the game gets a face lift and a new home.



"Do You Want to Play a Game?"

Remember POP Quizzes in school? Oh, how we would groan about them. Well, this year's Horror Trivia is a month long test of your horror knowledge (open book allowed). You will be given points for correct answers, points for sharing the event and more points for any of your friends who join the game. 

The game will start one week early on September 26 with the first prize package giveaway October 4th. A Facebook event page will open September 1st and be open until after the first week of November at which time it will end the 2016 game.

Quiz questions will be posted at Midnight on September 25, October 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30. Players will submit answers along with their name and address via email to charredremainsreviews@gmail.com by midnight Eastern time on Saturday nights: October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 & 31.  

Answers and points will be tallied and on Sunday night the player who scored the highest on his/her quiz will be the winner. In the event in which more than one player had the same high score a live drawing via Facebook or Youtube will be held.
