No need to wait any longer, you can sign up to participate right now! We will be kicking off the actual participation in a couple weeks, but for now you can make sure your name is in the hat so we can assign you to your groups; plus, for us, we'll know what the prize pool is going to be earlier if we get all the signups early too.

To sign up, just go to the new special Quiz page — that's right, we're bringing back the quizzes this month for you guys to celebrate our Tenth Anniversary with us. But, like Laszlow said, this time you don't get by on your Final Fantasy knowledge. It's up to your knowledge of music, the staff, and some good old-fashioned detective work. Or random guessing, since you've got a 20% chance of guessing right every time!

Don't worry, though, because we're also giving you some hints, some cryptic, some not. To learn more about whose music you're angling for, have a quick look at our "About the Participants" page.

The more people we get involved, the more money we can guarantee will roll out of the contest. So get your friends involved. If they're not on CoN, bring them in, because anyone with an authorized Caves of Narshe account can play, not to mention participate in these very forums and use all the other interactive features of CoN.

Get started, and post in here to let us know you're in!

I fear I'll do terrible in this, especially after reading each staffer's music profile and seeing the sample question. Still, I'm in. This looks like fun. biggrin.gif

I like this idea, especially since my own iPod just came back from repair (Apple sent me a brand new one... AGAIN!) Anywho, it should be fun, but I'm guessing some of this may be difficult, as the little bios mention that music thought is passed between them alot. At least with the other CoNtest, you could try and figure who was acting really out of character.

All I gotta say now then is that I'm signed up, and if this were the other way (you guess my music) nobody would ever win. tongue.gif

This is going to be fun, especially because I think I'll do fairly well. I mean, hell, most of the time I'm in CoNchat, when not harassing someone, drunk or making awkward jokes about sensitive issues, I'm talking music with the other regular junkies.

Seems that the first rush of responses has now died down, and we've done okay so far. I think we'll leave the signup open until next Saturday, June 30 - make sure if you haven't gotten in yet, you do by then. What can it hurt, even if you never get a single question right, you could still find five bucks in your inbox.

Did the signup deadline get pushed back?

You're already signed up, Dark Paladin. Try some patience. We'll hook you up with the real thing once the signups are done (around 7 July) — for now, read on to learn who's participating and how you can start to figure out who's rocking what.
