Here are the official rules of the trivia contest. I have tried to cover all possibilities. However, if you have any question please feel free to contact me.
When is the contest?
The trivia contest will begin Friday, October 27th, 2017 at Noon ET and will run through Tuesday, October 31st, 2017 at Noon ET. The winners will be announced at 9PM ET that night (unless tie-breakers delay the announcement). The final trivia questions will be posted Sunday, October 29th, 2017 at Noon ET
What will I need to do to enter?
To qualify to participate in the trivia contest and giveaway you MUST click GOING on the Facebook event page here: 2017 BIG Halloween Giveaway. Joining the pages of the prize contributors, while not mandatory is greatly appreciated. Plus it will set you up to see all their great products updates in the future. We will be posting a list of all Prize Contributors soon.
Once I have joined the page what do I need to do?
When the trivia contest begins Friday, October 27th at Noon ET a post will be made to the Event page as well as the Horror Movie Mask and Toys page which will include a link to the trivia questions of the day on HorrorTrivia.com. You will visit the post and use the form to submit your answers. Your answers will be sent to Gene DeRosa in email. He will keep track of all the scores throughout the contest.
YOU WILL HAVE 48 HOURS TO RESPOND TO THE QUESTIONS. ONLY ONE SET OF RESPONSES PER PERSON WILL BE ACCEPTED.
What type of questions will be in the contest?
Each day will consist of multiple trivia questions. Trivia questions will include actual questions, some identifying a snippet of a photo, or other form of torture I decide to come up with for you. All questions will be horror film related in some way.
How will points work?
Each days post with questions will list how much each one is worth. You will not receive partial credit for any answer. If you are not fully correct you will not get credit for the answer unless it is a multiple answer question.
Note: The actual questions have not been chosen at the time of this writing. That is why this description is trying to cover all possibilities.
Points will be totaled each day. Point totals will not be specifically announced. We will however announce how many people responded, how many got a perfect score and such, just not who has how many.
What happens if there is a tie?
In the event of a tie, those that are tied will be contacted and given a tie-breaking question. If they both respond correctly they will be given additional questions until the tie is broken.
What can I win?
We will be posting a full prize breakdown very soon. I assure you it is a spectacular list worth THOUSANDS of dollars.
When will the winner be announced?
The winner will be announced at 9PM ET on Tuesday, October 31st, 2017.
When will I get my prizes if I win?
Kevin King will get prizes packaged up and shipped out as soon as possible. It is hard to say exactly how long it will take to get to you.
Do I have to pay for shipping?
Shipping is FREE within the U.S.. If you live outside the U.S. you will need to pay $40 due to the additional shipping that will need to be paid. The prize packages are pretty large so this is unavoidable.
Thank you for participating in this free prize giveaway! Please help us spread the word to all of your friends and in your favorite horror groups.
Please send any rules questions to Gene at email@example.com or in a private message on Facebook to Gene DeRosa. He will try to respond as quickly as possible.
