1. What's the point of the Pacman? Why is the Pacman so evil?
The challenge facing us when developing this game was to figure out a way of keeping scores down. We got tired of seeing the 34 billion in Risky Business, so we decided to throw an element of chance into the game.
2. Can the Pacman be stopped?
Nope. The Pacman is all-powerful. Do not disturb the Pacman or you will suffer.
3. Can I leave in the middle of a game and retain my position?
Yes. If you leave and return within the same day, your position and all the boxes you've taken over will be saved. If you login the next day it'll reset.
4. What if my connection breaks during the game?
If your connection breaks while choosing a square your position will be saved and nothing bad will happen. However, if your connection breaks while answering a question, you will be counted wrong and the next time you login it will show you losing the square you were trying to takeover. This is so people don't quit out of the game after seeing a question then try to reenter and answer it after they've found the answer.
5. When do scores reset?
Scores accumulate during the week and reset each Monday.
6. How come I can only play once a day?
Well, first off we'd run out of questions if you played dozens of times a day...soon you'll have repeat questions and the game will become boring. We hope to institute multiple games in one day when we build up our trivia database. Until then you can login under another name and play again, but the questions will be the same.
7. Is this game multiplayer?
We're trying to work out some logistical concerns and hopefully Takeover 2.0 will be multiplayer.
8. Hey! I was about to win when the Pacman appeared and then it said I lost! No fair!
Tough luck. The Pacman is evil. Don't mess with him.
9. Is grief conselling available for losers of this game?
Sorry, our resident therapist is currently on sabbatical...
