How to Play

The games consist of 10 multiple choice questions, with the final championship game consisting of 15 questions. Each member of the team will answer every question individually and the scoring will be based on having the correct answer as well as how quickly the question was answered.

Team members will be seated together and may consult with one another before answering, but the quicker you anser, the more points you are awarded! At the end of each round, each of the team members' scores will be averaged together to get an overall team score. If the two teams competing do not have the same number of players, we will only factor in the scores of the smaller number of players. For example, if a team of 4 is playing a team of 2, only the top 2 scores from each team will be factored into the average overall team score for that game. The team with the higher total score will win the game and advance to the next round.

After the final round on Sunday morning, the winners are crowned and have their names engraved on a nearly two-foot tall silver trophy – along with earning year-long bragging rights.
