    Christmas Day is upon us, and with it the results of our Tempmas Card contest! The competition was fierce, but after much consideration the Tempmas Council of Elves and Father Tempmas finally came up with a list of winners:
    1. @WhiteMaze (25$ gift card of choice)
    2. @Darth Meteos (Dragon Injector, kindly sponsored by @MatinatorX)
    3. @MarcusCarter ($20 gift card of choice)
    4. @Axido ($15 gift card of choice)
    The winners will now be contacted by our elves in regards to their prizes, congratulations to all of the participants, you've all been awarded 3 points to your Tempmas tally! Now, it's time to introduce a new event, generously sponsored by our Patron @NicoAICP who kindly provided Steam codes for a variety of Sonic video games - a treat for whole 11 lucky Tempters, in addition to 1 point towards the Tempmas tally! We were inspired by the selection of games on offer, as well as the recent releases of Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and Team Sonic Racing, the latter of which we've reviewed in our Review Center, and we came up with a unique quiz. The rules are very simple - send in your answers via a PM titled "Tempmas Event 4" to our helpful @TempmasElf - sounds easy? Now, here's the catch! We'll be going through the responses in order, so the faster you are the better! 11 lucky winners will get to choose one of these Steam games each:
    1. Sonic 3 & Knuckles (Claimed by 9th winner, @Attila13)
    2. Sonic Adventure 2 + Sonic Adventure 2: Battle DLC (Claimed by 2nd winner, @ShadowOne333)
    3. Sonic Adventure DX (Claimed by 5th winner, @HylianBran)
    4. Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing (Claimed by 7th winner, @Kyouhei)
    5. Sonic CD (Claimed by 8th winner, @Araeden)
    6. Sonic Generations Collection (Claimed by 1st winner, @RedoLane)
    7. Sonic Lost World (Claimed by 3rd winner, @SuperrSonic)
    8. Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 (Claimed by 10th winner, @Rioluwott)
    9. Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 (Gifted to 10th winner by 11th winner, @strayofthesun)
    10. Sonic Forces (Claimed by 6th winner, @Sinon)
    11. Sonic Mania + Encore DLC (Claimed by 4th winner, @lordrand11)
    There's only one code available for each game, so if your eyes are set on a specific title, think fast! Ready? Set? Here's the questions:
    1. Sonic the Hedgehog is known as the fastest thing alive, but he has one fatal weakness which is often exploited by his arch nemesis, Eggman - what is our hero's Achilles' heel?
    2. Team Sonic Racing is the latest installment in the racing-themed sub-genre of Sonic games, but what was the first?
    3. Being an athlete, it was fairly obvious that Sonic would want to compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games, but he's not the only speedy contestant dreaming of a gold medal - who are the other characters whose specific strength is speed (described in the game as "Runs Fast")? Your list doesn't have to include all of the unlockable Guest characters, just the main roster.
    4. The plot of Team Sonic Racing revolves around a revolutionary new engine technology designed by Dodon Pa - what is the engine powered by?
    5. We all know that Sonic can only unlock his true potential by collecting all of the Chaos Emeralds - there's 7 of them, but that wasn't always the case. How many Chaos Emeralds were originally featured in Sonic the Hedgehog?
    Since you're all probably still celebrating, we're going to give you extra time and set the deadline to the 27th of December, 10PM GMT. On your marks! Get set! Gotta go fast!

    I think you should reduce it to the 26th to make it out as a speed quiz :D

    11 is a lot of prizes to give away, so the quiz must go on until they're all gone! :P

    What a fierce competition, we already have three winners on the podium! We'll do our best to update the list of available games as we go along, and remember - you only get one shot, so make sure you're sending in the right answers! There was some confusion regarding one question, so I asked the boss to clarify - speedy characters besides Sonic are described as "Running Fast", we're not looking for Fast Starts, we're in for the long haul! Good luck, and think fast!

    Are only correct answers eligible for 1 point or just an entry?

    All entries get 1 point for participation, but only people who sent in the right answers are eligible to win prizes. :)

    :toot: always missing one questions or two.
    Guess I'll just leave with a participation point, and regret on answering ambiguous questions.

    I have sent my solution many hours ago and haven't received any answer (My message hasn't be read yet). Do we receive the code before the event ends? When do we know if we have won something.

    We go through the answers in order, but sometimes we need to pause because the next user is currently offline and cannot pick a game until they're back online. Patience is a virtue, we go through answers diligently and as fast as we can. :P

    Don't worry, Father Tempmas reads all of your letters - unfortunately, unlike Sonic, he's not particularly fast. Still very cool though.
