Presentation Transcript
1. Rules of the Game • Presenter is truly god-like in his infinite wisdom. What he says is the way it is! • Each team will have a chance to answer in turn. If no one from team can answer, opposing team will have a chance to answer. • Bonus questions (yellow or red) go to first hand up. • Normal questions are worth +/- 1 point. Correct answer adds 1 to team tally. Incorrect answer deducts 1 from team tally. • Yellow questions are worth +2/-1 point. • Red questions are worth +3/-0 point.
