    Default FINAL CHALLENGE: FUN FACT!

    We'll wrap up the challenges with this last shot at getting some points, island-folk!

    You've spent a week looking at each other's threads about their various tribes. Hopefully you've learned a thing or two. Even if you haven't, here's a chance to show that you're coming away from this week knowing a little more about your fellow island-folk and their tribes.

    This is essentially a variation on the age-old "the person who posted above you" game. All you have to do is post some information or trivia - calll it a "fun fact" - about the tribe that posted before you.

    EXAMPLE: If the shockingly absent 3DO tribe had posted before me, one way to score here would be to post:

    FUN FACT: The game "Way of the Warrior" on the 3DO was developed by, and featured friends of, the now-popular Naughty Dog and featured music by White Zombie.

    You do not have to post in italics, but don't forget the FUN FACT!

    RULES:
    - you can post multiple times in this challenge, but you may not post twice successively (your own post followed by another of your own posts). If you do this, you lose any points accumulated in this thread.
    - you may not edit your posts in this thread. If you do this, you lose any points accumulated in this thread.

    SCORING:
    - if you post FUN FACT followed by an actual fact or trivia about the tribe that posted before you, you get 1 point.

    Go forth and conquer!

    Time to RACK UP!

    FUN FACT!

    Sega coined the term BLAST PROCESSING, they claimed it's why Sonic the Hedgehog could run so fast! Did you know that it was actually total BS? There was no real BLAST PROCESSING, just a term made up to (in my opinion) try to get a jump ahead of Nintendo.
