Preliminary Elimination Round
Each participant/team will receive a fillable Google quiz that contains the questions for the initial round. You will submit answers directly into the Google quiz and submit prior to the end of the first round.
There will be a brief scoring intermission during which you can stretch your legs and grab a beverage. Be sure not to wander too far, though! We’ll announce those teams progressing to the next round promptly after intermission ends.
TAfter the scoring of round 1 is complete, the top 9 teams will be announced and will move on to the next live round. If your team does not progress, please stick around – there is so much more fun to be had! (And maybe even prizes to be won!)
Muggles Elimination Round
In the event of a tie, the tied teams will receive a new Google sheet and have 5 minutes to answer 15 questions. The points for each question will be based on the difficulty and listed next to each question. After 5 minutes, answers must be submitted to the Quizard for scoring. The field of teams will then be eliminated down to 9.
