Here's a new game that's a little more complicated than most of them here and it's based off Ron Nasty's abandoned Trivia Race idea but slightly different.

Here's the board.

trivia.pngImage Enlarger

This game is a mixture of Candy Land and Jeopardy, here's the rules.

So you play as one of four Beatles historians, Mal Evans (The Beatles personal assistant, bodyguard, and writer of The Beatles Book Monthly), Mark Lewisohn (author of The Beatles Recording Sessions which he wrote after viewing the original Beatles master tapes, he is also one of few people who have heard Carnival Of Light ), Andy Babiuk (author of The Beatles Gear), and Geoff Emerick (Beatles engineer, wrote Here, There, And Everywhere).

We need four volunteers and i am going to roll some dice which determines how many spaces you move (the winner does this for the next round and so on).

Each color is a certain topic, red for instrumentation, purple for relationships, yellow for books, blue for sales and releases, orange for important events, and green for The Beatles in film.

Let's say Mark Lewisohn rolls a 4, it looks like he's on blue which means he has a sales and releases question to answer.

You could either go for 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, or 1,000 point questions.

Mark doesn't seem ready to go for a higher question, so he says 200.

Alright Mark, what number on the UK charts did Strawberry Fields Forever /Penny Lane peak at.

Mark says #2.

I say correct and he gets 200 points and gets to move on.

Now it's Mal's turn, he rolls a 2 and asks for a 500.

Alright Mal, what girl did Jane catch Paul sleeping with that ruined their relationship.

Mal says Linda McCartney.

Sorry Mal, you lose 250 points, the answer was Francie Schwartz.

Later in the game, Mark lands on a pink square so he learns a fun fact and automatically earns 100 points.

Did you know that the original version of Helter Skelter lasted for 26 minutes.

Looks like Mal landed on a Fontan of nots, looks like he's going to be given a false piece of information and he has to prove that it's wrong.

So Robert Fontenot tells Mal that Paul played acoustic guitar on Yellow Submarine .

Mal disproves this by pointing out that there is only one acoustic guitar part in the song and that the bass was recorded on the backing track alongside the acoustic guitar, tambourine, and drums.

Mal gets 200 points by doing this.

Once you get to the end and meet up with King Paul, you get 1,000 points if you're 1st, 500 if you're 2nd, 250 if you're 3rd and 100 if you're last and wait until the rest of the players get there. Once everybody gets there, the points are added up and the player with the most points wins.

If there is a tie, the user who made it there first out of those people wins.

The winner takes my place for the next round and so on.

Who wants to volunteer for the 1st round.

If All I've Got To Do is answer trivia, then I'm in. I don't understand how to keep track of the board however.

Good point, how will we know where we are. We could do it like this:

Mal=46

Geoff=39

Mark=37

Andy=32

But there's around 135 pieces on the board so it'd be hard to do that, i guess we'll have to keep score the manual way.

Who do you want to play as sir walter raleigh, would you rather be Mal, Mark, Andy, or Geoff. If you say pick for me or it doesn't matter, i will pick Mal because i pasted his head over one of the little kids first.

Sounds good to me, now we need 3 more volunteers, something tells me that either @The Hole Got Fixed or @Beatlebug is going to be the next volunteer as this game seems like something they would want to play.

This game sounds a bit confusing but really Beatley and cool so I'm in, if you don't mind!a-hard-days-night-john-6

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Yeah, I guess I'll play. I mightn't go as well as I hope though.

Incorrect. The first studio take of HS ran to 10:40. The longest studio take from that first day of recording, 18 July, the third take, was 27:11. The second take, an edit of which was released on Anthology 3 , was 12:35.

I'll play if I can be me.

Nice to know, i guess i should've double checked that first.

As for playing as Ron Nasty, i guess so although i'll have to redo the board picture but i'll replace Geoff Emerick with a picture of Ron Nasty.

Since we have 4 volunteers, the game can start. Sir Walter is Mark, Holey is Mal, Martha is Andy, and Ron Nasty is himself.

Mark moves 3 spaces and lands on books

Mal moves 5 spaces and lands on important events

Andy moves 6 spaces and lands on The Beatles in film

Ron Nasty moves 1 space and lands on instrumentation

Each of you pick whether you want a 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, or 1,000 point question.

Sounds good to me.

What country did The Beatles have problems in back in 1966 because they declined to attend a reception.

I read that in a book 2 days ago, which is good for me:

The Philippines (the royal family got angry, and various people were injured at Manila airport while trying to leave, etc.)

Correct, you move 2 spaces to instrumentation.

How many points would you like to go for?
