Welcome to the Big Bag of Booty Contest, in honour of 10 years Abandonia and the imminent release of the new episodic series Tales of Monkey Island.


The first prize is the FIRST SEASON OF 'TALES OF MONKEY ISLAND'! The winner will receive a Telltale account which will have the Tales of Monkey Island pre-order pack.

But not only first place will get rewarded: 2nd to 5th place will each get a pack of 3 games (games can be picked from a list).

But that's not all: from those who participate - regardless of the amount of correct answers - two people will be randomly picked to each receive a game as well! So be sure to join!




(ALL multiple choice questions only have ONE answer)

1.1. How did Lucas Arts come up with the name Guybrush (Threepwood), the main character in Monkey Island?
a) The initial idea was to give him a moustache which they nicknamed his "man brush" or "guy brush" but the idea was dropped because moustaches were no longer popular to have at the end of the 80's.
b) Before deciding on a name, they simply called him 'guy' and after saving the 'guy' sprite in the graphics program, it got as extension .brush making the file read 'guy.brush'.

9.1 In which game does a street peddler try to sell a monkey?
9.2 Which games has a gorilla dressed up as a dinosaur?
9.3 Which game had as bonus mission a monkey evading flower pots?
9.4 In which game did you hypnotize a monkey using a banana?
9.5 In which fighting game do you travel back to the prehistory only to beat up a big ape moments later?
