Enter to play Gold Streak HERE.

ENTRY COST AND PLAY LIMITS

Each day you may play two games free, plus up to 13 additional games for TCredits or EZ Express tokens, as follows:

  • Game 1 = free
  • Game 2 = free
  • Game 3 = 1 TCredit
  • Game 4 = 1 TCredit
  • Game 5 = 1 TCredit
  • Game 6 = 1 TCredit
  • Game 7 = 2 TCredits
  • Game 8 = 2 TCredits
  • Game 9 = 2 TCredits

  • Game 11 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 12 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 13 = 1 EZ Express
  • Game 14 = 1 EZ Express
  • Game 15 = 1 EZ Express

PLAY/WIN LIMIT

You may play a maximum of 15 times each day. Players are also limited to a maximum of 5 wins per day (a win is defined as achieving the longest streak of the day).

ROUNDS

There are three rounds of questions. Each time you guess the correct answer, your streak will advance by one and your stack of “gold coins” on the right will get grow taller.

In the first (“bronze”) round, you will be presented with five randomly-chosen survey questions.  For each question, your objective is to guess which of two answers was the most popular.

In the second (“silver”) round, you will be presented with another five randomly-chosen survey questions.  In this round, for each question, your objective is to guess which of three answers was the least popular.

In the third and final “gold” round, the number of questions you can answer is infinite.  That is, the system will keep feeding you new questions and your streak will keep growing as long as you keep guessing the correct answer.  In this round, for each question, your objective is to guess which of four answers was EITHER the most or least popular (as specified for each question).

Remember, as this is VERY important…you will choose the most popular answers in the first round and the least popular answers in the second round.  And in the third round, you will get a mix of questions–some requiring that you choose the most popular answer…and some requiring the least popular answer, so be sure to keep your focus!

DEADLINES

  • For questions in the first (bronze) round, you have 5 minutes to answer
  • For questions in the second (silver) round, you have 4 minutes to answer
  • For questions in the third (gold) round, you have 3 minutes to answer

When the clock is down to 30 seconds, a chime will sound–provided you have sound enabled–to let you know you need to answer soon.

Note: Since the timer on your computer may be off slightly from our official timer due to latency, always try to answer with at least 10 seconds remaining on the clock.

PASS!

At any time during the game, if you don’t think you know the answer, you can pass on a question.  You can pass up to three times total each game.  All passes add to your streak (and also earn you MRP and Poll Points).  The cost to use your first pass is 1 TCredit.  The cost to use your second pass is 3 TCredits.  The cost to use your third and final pass is 5 TCredits.

GRAB SOME HELP

If you need help with an answer, open a second window in your browser and use a search engine like Google or Yahoo.  By searching on one or more of the keywords in the question and/or answers, you may be able to find information that will help you choose the correct answer.

BRAIN TIP

When you encounter the questions that ask you to pick the LEAST popular answer, it can really mess with your head!  But here’s an easy way to deal with it:  Just modify the question in your mind to make it read the opposite way.  For example, if the question is, “What’s the ugliest animal?”…change it in your mind to “What’s the cutest animal?”  Reading it this way out loud will also help.  Using these tricks, it’s MUCH easier to choose the correct answer.

REACH THE STREAKASPHERE!

Achieving the longest streaks each day is fun and challenging, but that’s just the beginning of Eager Zebra “streak fun”  Each day, if you “reach the Streakasphere” in Gold Streak, you’ll extend your broader, day-to-day streak.  That is, you can build a 10-day streak, a 30-day streak, a 90-day streak, or even longer!

So what exactly does it take to “reach the Streakasphere?”  The Streakasphere is defined as the average Gold Streak streak for the last ten days (rounded down to the closest whole number).  So if for the last 10 days the average streak achieved in Gold Streak for EVERY player, for every game, was 7.4, then to get credited with reaching the Streakasphere today, you’ll need to achieve a streak of at least SEVEN.

To trumpet your streak prowess, there are several Streakasphere Streak badges (see BADGES section below for more information).

Note: There is a maximum of 12 plays of Gold Streak per day, so if your objective is to extend your Streakasphere streak, make sure you reach the Streakasphere within 12 plays!

POLL POINTS

Just as Trivia Points are awarded for correctly answering Knockout Trivia questions, in Gold Streak you’ll earn Poll Points for each correctly answered survey (poll) question.

  • Earn 5 points for each question answered correctly in the first (bronze) round
  • Earn 8 points for each question answered correctly in the second (silver) round
  • Earn 12 points for each question answered correctly in the third (gold) round

Your total cumulative number of Poll Points you’ve earned are recorded on the Poll Points Leaderboard…and badges, based on your Leaderboard rank, can be attained (see BADGES section below for more information).

Note: So that everyone can compete equally, Poll Points you’ve earned are halved every 30 days.

REWARDICAL

Each TCredit spent playing Gold Streak earns you 10 Rewardicals, redeemable for free Bitcoin, gift cards, silver bullion, and more! If you’re an SFI Affiliate, you can also exchange your Rewardicals for unlimited VersaPoints, PSAs, CSAs, and PRMs!

STATUS FEEDBACK

In the sidebar on the left side, starting with your second question, you will see, “XX players today have equalled or exceeded your current streak.”  This little bit of information is valuable because it helps you gauge how close you are to posting a top streak for the day.  A very large number probably means you’re not going to qualify (i.e. there are MANY who have achieved a longer streak than you today).  Conversely, a small number may indicate your streak will qualify as one of the longest of the day.  That said, keep in mind that it’s relative because it can only provide you with feedback for games that have been completed so far today; it cannot be definitive until the last game has been played for the day.

LEADERBOARDS

The Streaks Leaderboard provides rankings for:

  • Longest single-game Gold Streak streak (all-time, today, last 30/60/90 days)
  • Longest Streakasphere streak (current and all-time)

The Poll Points Leaderboard provides rankings for:

  • Most Poll Points

Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, Prize Points won are reduced by 50% every 30 days. Example: You scored 400 points today.  30 days from now, those points are now worth 200 points. 60 days from now, those points are now worth 100 points. 90 days from now, those points are now worth 50 points.  And so on.  Keep playing to maintain your leaderboard position!

Being amongst the top spots on the Streaks Leaderboard and Poll Points Leaderboard also earns you badges (see following BADGES section for more information).

BADGES

There are 14 total available badges…

1. A Gold Streak game entry earns you the “In it to win it!” badge.  Play at least once each day to keep this badge.  Note: Once you’ve earned a “Longest Streak” badge, it supplants the “In it to win it!” badge.

2. Reaching the Streakasphere for the day earns you a “Streakasphere reached” badge (expires at at midnight CT).

3. Finishing as a runner-up or second runner-up earns you the “Streak-Strong” badge.  Add bronze trim with 3 runner-up/second runner-up finishes.  Add silver trim with 10 runner-up/second runner-up finishes.  Add gold trim with 20 runner-up/second runner-up finishes.

4. Finishing a day with the longest streak earns you the prestigious “Top Streak” badge (or an upgraded “X-Times” version of the badge).  Add bronze trim with 3 best record finishes.  Add silver trim with 7 best record finishes.  Add gold trim with 12 best record finishes.

5. Achieving the longest streak for the previous day earns you the “Day’s Longest Streak” badge (expires in 24 hours)

6. Achieving the longest streak during the previous 10 days earns you the “Longest Streak (10 Day)” badge (expires in 10 days or when another player achieves a longer streak–whichever comes first)

  • Streak (current) …for the SS Streaks Leaderboard
  • Streakasphere Streak (all-time) …for the SS Streaks Leaderboard

Tips for winning TD Tally

blog_tdtally

OVERVIEW

Each week we choose 20 top offensive players from the NFL. Your simple objective is to predict how many touchdowns each chosen player will score.  Finish amongst the top prognosticators (least misses) and you’ll share in the big weekly TCredits “Zackpot.” And if you’re really confident in your predictions, you can “double down” for just 5 TCredits and TRIPLE your Zackpot winnings!  Plus, you can compete for the top spots on the TD Tally Leaderboard and earn cool badges, too!  Details below.

Not sure how a player is going to perform?  You can “bench” up to five different players each week.  Just click the “Bench” button beside the player’s name.  The benefit of benching is that the player’s performance this week will not count on your record–so that’s up to five less misses on your record you can guarantee for yourself each week.  However, benching players costs TCredits.  Benching players is 100% optional.

You can enter TD Tally each week for just one TCredit.  No purchase necessary to win.  Void where prohibited.  See Official Rules for complete rules.


A TOUCHDOWN TUNE-UP

A touchdown is the biggest scoring play in the game of football. It is worth six points. A touchdown is made by running the ball over the opponents goal line into the end zone or catching a pass in the end zone. Any player who runs the ball, catches a pass or throws a pass resulting in a score will get credited with a touchdown.

TD Tally features players playing four positions:

  • Quarterback (QB)
  • Running Back (RB)
  • Wide Receiver (WR)
  • Tight End (TE)

Quarterbacks are the primary ball handlers in the game of football. They also tend to be the highest scoring players in the game. The reason for this is that they can score by passing or running the ball. Last year, one quarterback in the National Football League (NFL) averaged three touchdowns per game. Fourteen quarterbacks averaged two TDs (touchdowns) per game. The rest of the starting quarterbacks in the NFL averaged 1 to 1 1/2 TDs per game.

As the name implies, running backs (RBs) specialize in running the ball, but they can also catch passes. Last year, the top running back in the NFL averaged scoring just over one touchdown per game. Four running backs were just shy of scoring one touchdown per game while many others averaged closer to scoring one touchdown in every two games (0.5 TDs per game).

Wide receivers (WRs) primarily catch passes from the quarterback. They score touchdowns at almost the same frequency as running backs. The best receivers average close to one touchdown per game while many others, on average, score a touchdown once every two games.

Tight Ends (TEs) primarily catch passes from the quarterback. They score touchdowns the least frequently of the four offensive positions featured in TD Tally.

To learn more about football, here’s a helpful guide:

http://www.nfl.com/rulebook/beginnersguidetofootball


 STRATEGIES

The chances of a player scoring a touchdown can effected by any number of things including the strength of the offense he plays for and the prowess of the defense against whom the player is trying to score.

The top scoring team in the NFL last year averaged 4.5 touchdowns per game while twelve other teams averaged around three TDs a game. The bottom five teams in the 32 team league scored slightly under two TDs per game. Players who play for good offenses will get more opportunities to score touchdowns.

The top defenses in the NFL usually give up around an average of two TDs a game. The worst defenses give up around 3 1/2 TDs a game. If you have a player going up against a good defense, you may predict a lower TD total for him. If a player is going up against a bad defense, odds are greater that he could score a touchdown.

There are numerous other factors involved. Sometimes a player does not get as much playing time due to injury or a coach’s decision. Other times, the opposing defense may pay special attention to a certain player making it tougher for that player to score.

We will be providing links to updated stats so that you can check the offensive firepower and defensive strength of each team.

Play it safe strategy

Keep your predictions close to the player average. If a QB (quarterback) is averaging 2.9 touchdowns per game, predict three TDs. If a RB (running back) is averaging 0.7 TDs a game, predict one touchdown. This strategy is conservative and, mathematically, you are predicting the most likely result. In theory, it should also give you a good shot at winning. However, you also should keep in mind that many others will be using the same strategy and TDs are difficult to predict!

Watch the injury reports

Does a player have an injury that could affect him? If so, you may want to  turn in a lower prediction for him. This is especially true if it is a leg injury for a player who needs to run well, such as a running back or wide receiver. However, a quarterback may still be able to throw TD passes even on a bad leg!

NFL teams are required by the league to submit injury reports. Those reports can be found here:

http://www.nfl.com/injuries

Aggressive strategy

To win a share of the weekly Zackpot and the coveted badges that comes with it, you need to predict each total correctly. The aggressive strategy consists of making several unusual predictions out of the list of 28-32 players. If a wide receiver averages one TD a game, predict that he will score two or three this week. It may be less likely to occur, but your prediction will stand out from the pack and it could put you in a position to share a much larger slicer of the Zackpot than those playing conservatively!

Zig Zag strategy

Here is another strategy that could help your predictions win the day. As the name implies, whenever everyone else is expecting a “zig”, you predict a “zag”. For example, let’s say a running back is going against a defense that gave up several rushing TDs the prior week. If you anticipate others predicting the RB to rush for one or two TDs, you can “zag” and predict no TDs. This will be going against the grain, but there is some logic behind this strategy. It makes sense to assume that the defense will be trying extra hard after having a bad game.


LEADERBOARD

The NFL Leaderboard provides rankings for NFL Points scored playing TD Tally and Pick Or Punt:

  • Earn 350 points for finishing a week with the best record in TD Tally

Being amongst the top spots on the NFL Leaderboard also earns you badges (see following BADGES section for more information).

The American version of football is the most popular sport in the United States. The most popular league in the U.S. is the National Football League (NFL). It is a professional league that has 32 teams play a season of 16 games. Since each team gets one week of rest called a bye week, the NFL regular season lasts 17 weeks. The Pick or Punt Contest will be asking you to predict the winning NFL teams each week.

Favorites and underdogs

A “favorite” is a team that oddsmakers have predicted to win. If a team is the favorite to win by seven points, that team will be listed at “-7” in newspapers and websites.

An “underdog” is a team that oddsmakers have predicted to lose. If a team is a seven point underdog, that team will be listed at “+7” in newspapers and websites.

Pick Or Punt does not use point spreads, but point spreads are a great way to know how strongly the experts think of a team’s chances to win. Generally, the more points a team is favored to win by, the greater the likelihood that team will win. Don’t have time to research player injuries and other information pertaining to a game? That’s fine. The point spread is usually adjusted to account for those situations. We will be providing a link to point spread information.

Comparing point spreads with the chance of winning

A general rule of thumb is for every point a team is favored by, they have a 3% better chance of winning. A “pick’ em” game, or game where neither team is favored, would have both teams at 50% likelihood of winning. A team favored by one point would have a 53% chance to win. A team favored by two has a 56% chance to win, and so on. A 10 point favorite, by this measure, has an 80% chance to win.

STRATEGIES

The goal of Pick Or Punt is to predict the winner of each NFL game each week. Below, are a few strategies for you to keep in consider using:

Conservative

A conservative approach would be to simply pick favorites since they are perceived to have a greater chance of winning. This is especially true with teams that are favored by a touchdown (seven points) or more since those teams are expected to win 70% of the time or more. Since this strategy is the most popular way to go, you may want to mix in other approaches to help your predictions rise above the crowd.

Contrarian

Reject the popular opinion! Dare to go the other direction. This strategy requires you to identify a couple games where you feel that the underdog may be getting too little respect. If a favorite has a 60% chance to win but over 80% of the crowd has predicted them to win, a play on the underdog is just what the contrarian is looking to do. A 40% chance to win can look more appealing if you believe that you are one of the few to make such a prediction!

Zig Zag

Like the contrarian strategy, here is another strategy that could help your predictions stand out from the crowd. As the name implies, whenever everyone else is expecting a “zig”, you predict a “zag”.  Look for ways to stand out from the crowd. Since home teams have an advantage, picking home underdogs would be a key component of the Zig Zag strategy. Choosing a team that is coming off a loss is another popular “zag”. Since last week’s loss is still fresh in everyone’s mind, you can take advantage of that by predicting that a recent loser will come back and try extra hard for a win!

Situational

Because this strategy requires you to look at the circumstances surrounding a game, this method may require a bit of research on your part. However, it could give you the edge you need to win a share of the Zackpot! Sometimes a favored team may overlook their opponent and be ripe for an upset. Maybe an underdog team is particularly focused in a given week to avenge an earlier loss. Another angle is to look at opposing styles– one team has the better offense while the other has the better defense. You may choose a philosophy on how you will predict some of those match-ups.

Go with the home team!

Home field advantage is nice in any sport, and in football, it can make a big difference. Home teams have won 58% of the NFL games since 1990. Fan support can vary from team to team however, and some veteran teams seem to play well on the road. So while you may want to use this strategy sparingly, keep it in mind especially if you’re looking to pick some upsets that may help your entry rise above the crowd!

Introducing…Big Dog games, Junior games, and more!

Everyone who is familiar with our very popular Pricebenders auctions knows about the following auction types:

  • 1WA auctions (auctions for those looking for their first win)
  • Junior auctions
  • Big Dog auctions

We’re excited today to announce that all of these attributes will now be appearing regularly in our Knockout Trivia games, too!

We will be testing different percentages, but currently you will see:

  • 1W (restricted to only those who’ve not yet won) on 4% of matches
  • Junior (restricted to only those with 5 wins or less) on 4% of matches
  • Big Dog auctions on 4% of matches

What makes Big Dog games…big dog?  Entry for Big Dog games will be 5 TCredits.  Lifelines, revivals, etc. will also cost more TCredits.  So why play when it costs more?  Here are three big reasons:

  1. Bigger Zackpots are likely
  2. Less competition is likely
  3. Winners earn a special Knockout Trivia Big Dog badge (note: expires after 15 days).

 

Your first opportunity  to earn Big Dog status will be in match #2109, which will be coming up in about 15-20 minutes (from this post time).

We are going to also continue to offer free entry for 48% of all matches.

To know which attribute each current or upcoming game is using (if any), simply check out the Knockout Trivia panel on the GAMES index at:

http://www.tripleclicks.com/indexContests.php

Enjoy!

FYI: So that you can be alerted to the types of games you want to participate in, we will soon be making available a special Eager Zebra Twitter feed that you’ll be able to subscribe to to receive notifications of games starts for each of the different types of games.

Your feedback in helping us identify any remaining hiccups is appreciated!

WHAT IS IT?

In Knockout Trivia, your objective is to outlast your fellow players answering trivia questions.  For each question, you’re provided with four answers to choose from.  Choose the right answer and you’ll move on to the next round…or get knocked out with a wrong answer. Be the last player standing to win the match and a free bonus entry (maximum 5) in the big Daily Crown drawing for the following day where you can win up to 1000 Rewardicals! You get 285 chances to win with each Daily Crown entry!  Play up to two FREE matches daily, more for as little as one TCredit per match.  No purchase necessary to enter or win.

THINK FAST

Because players could otherwise find the answer with a quick Internet search, you’ll have only about 12 seconds (on average) from the time the question is revealed until answers can no longer be accepted.  So be ready to play when the game starts…and keep distractions to a minimum.

50/50 “LIFELINES”

Every player is provided with three opportunities to use a 50/50 “lifeline” any time during a game.  What this means is if you’re not sure of the answer to a question, you can just click on one of the 50/50 buttons.  The system will instantly remove two of the wrong answers. But remember, there are only three of these buttons available…so use them only when you really need them.  But when you DO need them, use them quick!

EASY-MEDIUM-HARD

Knockout Trivia starts with easy questions for the first several rounds.  It then will shift to medium-difficulty questions, and later still, questions rated “hard.”  Therefore, it will behoove you to try to save your “lifelines” for the latter part of the game when the questions are the most difficult.

ENTRY COST AND PLAY LIMITS

Each day you may play three games free, plus up to 12 additional games for TCredits or EZ Express tokens, as follows:

  • Game 1 = free or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 2 = free or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 3 = free or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 4 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 5 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 6 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 7 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 8 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 9 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 10 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 11 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 12 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 13 = 1 EZ Express
  • Game 14 = 1 EZ Express
  • Game 15 = 1 EZ Express

REVIVAL

If you get knocked out in an early round of a game, you’ll automatically be presented with the opportunity to buy back in with TCredits.  The number of TCredits required depends on the round (the later the round, the more TCredits it will cost you to get back in the game).

TRIVIA POINTS LEADERBOARD

Even if you don’t win Knockout Trivia, you can be racking up trivia points and winning bragging rights and prime spots on the Trivia Points Leaderboard.  For every trivia question you answer correctly, you’ll earn 5 points.  For each medium question, you’ll earn 8 points.  And for each hard question, you’ll earn 12 points.  Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, points won are halved every 30 days.

BADGES

Knockout Trivia offers players cool badges, too.  Earn the “In it to win it!” badge just for playing (Note: badge expires after 24 hours; play daily to keep this badge on your mantel).  Earn a RUNNER-UP badge with a runner-up finish or earn a WINNER badge for winning a match.  And if you win more than once, your badge will reflect this and include your number of wins, too!  Also, add a prestigious bronze strip to your badge with 3 wins, a silver strip with 10 wins, or an “I rule around here” gold strip with 20 or more wins.

COUNTRY COMPETITION

A fun little feature of Knockout Trivia is the display of the flags of the countries with the most players in the game.  Root your country on to victory from the sidelines or, better yet, enter the game and help your country win the match and dominate the Trivia Points Leaderboard and the Top Player Leaderboard–a leaderboard that tracks how every country in the world is doing in ALL Eager Zebra games!  Note: So that all countries have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, its players’ points won are halved every 30 days.

UNLIMITED REWARDICALS

Each time you spend a TCredit playing Knockout Trivia, you’ll earn 10 Rewardicals, redeemable for free Bitcoin, gift cards, silver bullion, and more! If you’re an SFI Affiliate, you can also exchange your Rewardicals for unlimited VersaPoints, PSAs, CSAs, and PRMs!

TECHNICAL AND LANGUAGE ISSUES

Knockout Trivia isn’t for everybody.  To work properly, Knockout Trivia requires that you have a good Internet connection on your end.  If you do not, latency may create timing issues.  Note that latency is a function of YOUR computer and the speed of YOUR Internet connection–which is out of our control.  There are some things you can do, however, to mitigate latency issues:
  1. Make sure you are running the latest version of your Web browser.  We recommend Safari, Chrome, or FireFox.
  2. Don’t have lots of windows open in your browser when playing  Knockout Trivia.
  3. Restarting your browser and/or computer can also help.
  4. Check with your ISP; they may offer a faster service you can upgrade to.
Knockout Trivia may also not be for you if English is not your native language.  But don’t worry, because we have many, many more games coming that you are sure to like!
