GAMES

 

This sequence contest is not an IQ test.  It has two main purposes: to provide fun for contestants, and to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.   The winner of the contest will receive 25% of all funds raised, while the other 75% will be donated to the charity.

 

Entrants may make multiple submissions. The winner will be the entrant with the highest score.  In the event of a tie, the tying entrants will be invited to take part in a further short tie-breaking sequence contest.

 

The questions are all concerned with very well-known games or sports.  Some research may be required…but only a little. 

The deadline for submissions is midnight GMT on Friday 15th March 2019.

 

Entries should be sent to timro21@gmail.com with “Games entry” in the subject line. 

 

The entry fee is US$12, payable by clicking on this Paypal icon.
