Quiz rules
  • Team members (max 8 per team) may choose to either communicate with each other remotely and privately, or gather at someone’s house while observing safe distancing and visiting rules.
  • Please don’t be cruel by Googling your answers. This quiz will operate on the journalistic principles of integrity and honesty. May the best team win fair and square.
  • Cameras on please. As this is an interactive game and networking opportunity, it would be a heartbreak (hotel) not to see everyone’s faces.
  • Any dispute over points and answers will be resolved at the quiz master’s discretion.
  • Don’t go hungry. To ensure that you are well fed during the quiz, we have arranged for special bento menu that you can order to be delivered (*Check out the menu and payment methods below).
