I finish working at 6:30 myself. With transport and cooking, supper is rarely before 8.
I'm part of the weird people.

I may be there, depending on if I have to carry some guild buddies through some bosses in FFXIV. Hard to fight titan AND answer questions about IX at the same time.

TASTY!

I find that hard to believe. There's so much obscure world-building in FFIX.

I'll try to be there, hopefully dinner doesn't get in the way with it being an hour later for us North Americans than usual and all.

Granted that FFIX blows pretty much every other FF game out of the water in terms of world building, it's still not nearly as bad as "What was written on Fayt's Shirt?" or "Name the one organization one of your party members hails from in a game where everything has an organization name and they're all generic sounding." or the 'hope that you were a fan of that one particular exclusively optional character that you can bump into at the start of the game and then completely ignore for far better characters because a third of the questions are about her' that SO3 was (and that's not even coming near the million different things about Item Creation, Battle Skills, Unrewarding Sidequests, or junk items that the game could easily inundate you on).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I thought the Q's were fine.  Not easy to craft a quiz for a game that had a giant combat/customization system but also had an Encyclopedia for all the game elements in it.

Congrats homegirl!  If I had been there though... I would have been just another sacrificial lamb.  I haven't played FF IX in forever.  Good job!

WE WON THE WAR!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


But I doubt I'll win that one...  Are you gonna ask plot questions?  Because that might take a paragraph to answer.

(btw, thanks Monsoon)

Sure. I did that back in the Persona 4 quiz and there's usually chatting going on before, after, and even during the quiz (although don't chime in answers during the quiz until after the time limit for the question in question has expired).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
