Following the trend of all the other Millionaire games in the other FF forums, I thought I'd set one up for FFX-2. You all know the idea behind this, you get a question and four possible answers, the questions increase in difficulty the more questions you get right. There are a total of 15 questions and after 5 questions and 10 questions there is a milestone where that amount of gil is safe, no matter what happens. The gil ladder is as follows:

32,000 <- and another one here.
1,000 <- Milestone here

You have 3 lifelines: 50:50, Search google and Ask the Experts. 50:50 removes 2 incorrect answers leaving the correct answer and one incorrect answer. Search google is literally what it says it is and ask the experts is where I send a PM to a team of previously selected individuals who class as experts on FFX-2 and await their reply.

To decide who's in the hotseat, we play fastest finger first, so whoever posts in the quickest time by following the instructions in this post will be in the hotseat first and playing for a virtual 1 million gil.

Ok, and if you're ready, let's play, fastest finger first.

Arrange these dresspheres in the order of which they are acquired:

1) White Mage
2) Songstress
3) Samurai
4) Trainer

Good luck.

12-07-2006, 02:32 AM
:) I wanna play. I wanna be on the panel too, but I'd rather play first. So hopefully I don't screw this up. I'm pretty intimately familiar with the game, so I'm going to go with...

2.) Songstress
1.) White Mage
3.) Samurai
4.) Trainer

The only thing is --- I think those last two answers can actually be reversed. Because you get both of them in Chapter 3, if I'm not mistaken. Trainer is acquired from Kimahri if you chose the right options in Chapters 1 and 2. And Samurai is lying around in the Kilika Temple if I'm not mistaken. And the game's structure lets you visit either location first.

As for "Songstress," it's not really "acquired" as such. It's automatic. But ah well.

12-07-2006, 06:02 AM
I'm gonna say...

2.) Songstress
1.) White Mage
4.) Trainer
3.) Samurai

12-07-2006, 07:24 AM
The last two dont really have any definiative order. They can both be got at the same time. So it kinda voids the question.

12-07-2006, 08:19 AM
I don't think it voids the question per se, because with a Fastest Finger, the winner is the first person who gets any correct answer. I mean, if it were the actual game, then having two possible correct answers / answer sets would definitely be a problem. But in this case, it's whoever is first anyway, so even if someone else rung in with a different but still correct answer, they would be out of the running.

I guess that makes the winner me, mwa, and yours truly. :D

12-07-2006, 08:25 AM
Both of you are correct, there are two orders as the Trainer and Samurai dresspheres can both be obtained in chapter 3 or 5. So as Agent0042 was the first to get it right, I guess he's in the hotseat.

Agent0042, welcome to the game, and let's play who wants to be an FFX-2 Gillionaire.

For 100 gil:
What is the name of the leader of the Youth League?

A) Baralai
B) Gippal
C) Meyvn Nooj
D) Yuna

12-07-2006, 08:48 AM
C.) Meyvn Nooj, at least until he goes AWOL. Although Lucil indicated she'd never be the true leader of the group (unless "Deathseeker" Nooj actually finally got his wish or something...)

12-07-2006, 08:55 AM
Correct, you've won 100 gil.

For 200 gil.

Which of these is not a Special Dressphere?

A) Floral Fallal
B) Beast of Burden
C) Machina Maw
D) Full Throttle

12-07-2006, 08:57 AM
B) Beast of Burden isn't even a dressphere at all. :)

12-07-2006, 09:11 AM
Correct. Onto the third question.

For 300 gil.

What is the name of the airship that is the home of the Gullwings?

A) Farenheit
B) Celsius
C) Kelvin
D) It has no name

12-07-2006, 09:14 AM
The B) Celsius temperature of the ship is hot, hot, hot. :)

12-07-2006, 09:25 AM
Correct, now remember, you can walk away at any time, and you will keep all the money you have earned up to this point, and you've still got all three lifelines still intact.

For 500 gil:

In which chapter is the song "1000 Words" sung?

A) Chapter 3
B) Chapter 2
C) Chapter 5
D) Chapter 4

12-07-2006, 04:10 PM
That would have to be D) Chapter 4, in which events focus around the big Thunder Plains concert.

12-07-2006, 08:20 PM
That's correct. Now this is the last point at which you could go home with nothing. After this point the least you can go away with is 1000 gil. So, let's get going.

For 1000 gil:

What class of creature is the Chocobo?

A) Chocobo
B) Bird
C) It doesn't have a class
D) Haizhe

12-07-2006, 08:57 PM
Hmm, classifications. I was tempted at first to say no classification. However, then I realized that chocobos show up in battle. Hmm, given that this is only a 1000 gil question, I get the feeling there's no tricks. Chocobo I don't think would be both the name and the classification. Therefore, I'm going to take B) Bird for 1000 gil, Alex.

12-07-2006, 11:04 PM
Oh, I'm sorry, you were right first time. The chocobo has no classification. I was debating whether to give you this later or not, and maybe I should have done. Unfortunately, you go away empty handed.

12-07-2006, 11:05 PM
Yeah, that was a hard one for 1000 gil. I mean, if it were for like 4000 or 8000 gil or something, I probably would have used a lifeline. But I didn't expect any tricks at that gil level. Still, I accept my loss, though. On we go!

12-07-2006, 11:23 PM
Alright, the next fastest finger first round starts now.

Put these characters in the order you meet them:

A) Leblanc
B) Gippal
C) Lucil
D) Tobli

Swedish Fish
12-08-2006, 01:33 AM
A) LeBlanc
C) Lucil
D) Tobli
B) Gippal

12-08-2006, 03:46 AM
This question is a bit iffy. Dosen't it depend on where you decide to land first?
I'm pretty sure you can go see Tobil before Lucil.

Btw, Lucil is the commander for um... Nooj's side right?

12-08-2006, 08:33 AM
Again, you're both correct, however Kailas was there first, so he's in the hotseat.

Ok Kailas, you're just 15 questions away from a virtual 1 million gil. You've got three lifelines, 50:50, Search Google and Ask The Experts. You can walk away at any time and the questions get harder as you reach the higher amounts of money.

Right now let's play who wants to be an ffx-2 gillionaire

For 100 gil:

Who is the leader of the Machine Faction?

A) Meyvn Nooj
B) Baralai
C) Paine
D) Gippal

Swedish Fish
12-09-2006, 02:03 AM
Sorry I hadn't noticed earlier.

D) Gippal

12-09-2006, 02:16 AM
Correct. You've just won 100 gil. Bear with me a second whilst I switch to the laptop and then I'll post your next question.

Ok, now for 200 gil, just answer the following question:

How many levels are there in Via Infinito?

A) An infinite amount, as the name implies.
B) 100
C) 271
D) 523

Swedish Fish
12-09-2006, 02:43 AM
B) 100

12-30-2006, 10:33 PM
Correct, you've won 200 gil. For 300 gil:

Which of these characters stars in FFX but not in FFX-2?

A) Tidus
B) Wakka
C) Auron
D) Kimarhi

Swedish Fish
12-30-2006, 11:13 PM
I guess that would be C) Auron, seeing as all of the others appear, albeit briefly, in X-2.

12-30-2006, 11:16 PM
That's correct. You've won 300 gil. Now for the 500 gil question:

Who is Dr. P?

A) Cid
B) Shinra
C) Paine
D) Buddy

Swedish Fish
12-30-2006, 11:34 PM
Dr. P? I'll use 50:50.

12-31-2006, 12:05 AM
Okay, I'll take away two answers leaving you with the correct answer and one remaining wrong answer:

The remaining answers are:

C) Paine
D) Buddy

Swedish Fish
12-31-2006, 12:22 AM
I don't think it's Buddy, so C) Paine, please. I was kind of thinking Shinra, but it seems not.

12-31-2006, 03:01 AM
Paine is correct. You've won 500 gil. Now this is the last point at which you could go home with absolutely nothing. For 1000 gil:

What is the name of the Garment Grid you recieve at the beginning of the game?

A) Bum Rush
B) First Steps
C) The Beginning
D) Unerring Path

Swedish Fish
12-31-2006, 03:03 PM
Oh fuck. I'm gonna feel really stupid if I miss this. I'll say B) First Steps.

12-31-2006, 06:40 PM
Congratulations you've won 1,000 gil. Right this next question you may as well play, even if you have to use your two remaining lifelines on it. For 2,000 gil:

Which of these is the odd one out?

A) Trema
B) Shuyin
C) Ormi
D) Logos

12-31-2006, 07:10 PM
Do *not* post answers if you are not in the Hot Seat

Swedish Fish
12-31-2006, 07:54 PM
Silly n00bs. I think its A) Trema. He's the only optional boss there.

12-31-2006, 08:02 PM
That's correct. Trema is the only optional boss.

You've won 2,000 gil, for 4,000 gil:

The Lady Luck dressphere can be found in Chapter 3. Which other chapter can it also be found?

A) Chapter 1
B) Chapter 2
C) Chapter 4
D) Chapter 5

Swedish Fish
12-31-2006, 08:25 PM
I'll say D) Chapter 5. I'm not too sure, but I don't think it's A or B.

12-31-2006, 08:51 PM
umm..isnt it found in ughhhhh crap i forgot

12-31-2006, 08:59 PM
Knock it off! Read the rules! You only answer the question if you're in the Hot Seat. Haven't you ever seen "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" before? Either way, don't keep doing this. I am removing your answers and if you do this again, I'm just going to start deleting.

01-02-2007, 04:11 AM
Chapter 5 is correct. That's 4,000 gil. Now we're onto the more difficult sums, so the questions are only going to get harder from here on out. Remember you can leave at any time.

For 8,000 gil:

What is the minimum number of times required to complete the game in order to acheive 100% completion status (assuming the game is thoroughly ransacked for every percentage bonus possible)?

A) 1
B) 2
C) 3
D) 4 or more

01-02-2007, 04:36 AM
Good heavens above!!! How many different ways I have to say this to stupid n00bs? Do not post if you are not in the Hot Seat!!! UltimateFFFan --- don't worry. I don't think Swedish Fish saw the answer and it was the wrong answer anyway.

01-02-2007, 11:53 AM
These noobs are starting to get on my nerves.... Anyway to stop the posting crap like this until after they've got 50 posts lol?

Swedish Fish
01-02-2007, 07:32 PM
Ask The Experts please. I never actually completed that detective side-quest. And I'm not sure about the Comm Spheres either.

01-02-2007, 09:50 PM
Ok, I'll PM the Experts and post their responses when I get them. The Experts are:

and Gummi Bears

Okay, here are the replies:

Prak was first to reply and sounded fairly confident with his answer:
Prak: "It is possible to achieve 100% in a single playthrough, but only if you give the Awesome Sphere to the Youth League. Therefore, the answer is A."

Next was Agent0042. He also sounded confident being the mod of the FFX-2 forum:
Agent0042: "I am 100% sure the answer is A) 1. As the mod of the FFX-2 section, this comes up pretty much all the time really. 100% can be attained in one playthrough, but I have always recommended against it because if you only do that, you miss out on stuff and really, it's much easier to just get it in two playthroughs."

Finally, Gummi Bears replied, offering a different answer:
Gummi Bears: "Well I believe I managed it after playing it through twice. So I will say B:2"

And those are your choices. Remember you don't have to go with any of the experts, and you can choose C or D if you wish.

Swedish Fish
01-03-2007, 08:08 PM
I'll go with A) 1. Prak and Agent generally know their stuff.

01-03-2007, 08:48 PM
Prak and Agent0042 were correct, as well as yourself. 1 time through is the right answer. As Agent0042 said however, it's easier to do it 2 times through.

Alright that's the 8,000 gil, now we're on to double figures. For 16,000 gil:

Which of these monsters cannot be oversouled?

A) Sallet
B) Recoil
C) Divebeak
D) Evil Eye

Swedish Fish
01-03-2007, 10:19 PM
Ask Google. Does that mean that I can only search google, or can I look at gamefaqs (or other sites).

01-04-2007, 01:58 AM
I'll allow it to be broadened. I really should make this one more interesting rather than just "Ask Google" lol. Hope you find what you're looking for anyway.

Swedish Fish
01-04-2007, 07:37 PM
It seems to be B) Recoil.

01-05-2007, 01:10 AM
That's correct. Recoil is the only one that cannot be oversouled. It appears in Shinra's Bestiary as a "Common Subject".

Now this is a crucial question. If you get this right, you will definitely go away with at least 32,000 gil. However get this wrong and you drop 15,000 back down to the 1,000 gil. Good luck, here's your question.

What are the two abilities that are taught by the Books of Magical Dances?

A) Samba of Silence and HP Handjive
B) MP Mambo and Darkness Dance
C) MP Mambo and Magical Masque
D) Magical Masque and HP Handjive

Swedish Fish
01-07-2007, 06:31 PM
I don't want to stop here, so I'll take a stab at it. B) MP Mambo and Darkness Dance.

BTW - Sorry for the wait. I had to go see my grandparents.

01-07-2007, 07:24 PM
Oh I'm sorry but that's the wrong answer. The correct answer was C) MP Mambo and Magical Masque.

Darkness Dance is the ability that is already known before you even start using the dressphere. Unfortunately, this also means you drop back down to 1,000 gil. Well, I suppose it's better than nothing.

Thanks very much for playing. If you have any suggestions for the game, PM me and I'll consider them.

Okay, I'll start the next round of fastest finger first on Monday. So for now, feel free to congratulate/commiserate Swedish Fish on his 1,000 gil win.

01-07-2007, 07:28 PM
Wait I thought it was darkness song that you originally Know.

01-07-2007, 07:40 PM
Nope, Darkness Dance. Sing raises your stats or lowers enemy stats. Dance causes status changes. And who says they're not all real ones anyway, HP Handjive :rolleyes:

jewess crabcake
01-07-2007, 07:45 PM
Wow I guess it has been a while like 2 yrs. Might re-buy or test out Pscx2 with it.

Swedish Fish
01-07-2007, 08:00 PM
Ah well. I had fun.

Wow I guess it has been a while like 2 yrs. Might re-buy or test out Pscx2 with it.


01-08-2007, 02:59 AM
Ok guys the next round begins now:

In order to play complete the following Fastest Finger First:

Put the following Auto Abilities into reverse alphabetical order:

A) Beserkproof
B) Stoneproof
C) Ice Ward
D) Omni Ward

01-08-2007, 08:31 AM
Omni Ward
Ice Ward

EDIT: ???
