The Adventure Unfolds:
Start: Sign up, nominate your favorite charity, and submit your most intriguing, open-ended questions. These questions should challenge basic knowledge and analytical thinking. For guidance on crafting these questions, check out [[HQC23 Question preparation]].
Flash Quiz Preliminaries: All participants, whether Knights playing solo or as part of Guardian teams, tackle 60 multiple-choice questions. Each question is a test of quick thinking and decision-making, with only 30 seconds to answer. The highest-scoring individuals and teams advance, bringing the top Knights' questions into later rounds.
Semi-Finals Duel: In this intense round, the top Guardian teams face off in pairs. Here, the challenge escalates as teams navigate through the open-ended questions submitted by Knights, each team striving to outsmart the other with a 90-second response time. The first team in each pair to correctly answer 9 questions earns their spot in the Grand Showdown.
- Show Match: A special feature where charities with the most Knight nominations confront the highest bidders from our Silent Auction. It's a display of knowledge and strategy, and if the bidders choose not to participate, this match may be adapted or omitted.
- The Ultimate Battle: Mirroring the intensity of the Semi-Finals, the remaining teams engage in a head-to-head battle of wits. The first team to correctly answer 9 open-ended questions clinches victory, securing not just accolades for themselves but also substantial rewards for their nominated charity.
Note: The Semi-Finals and the Grand Showdown will be hosted on Zoom and live-streamed with a 5-minute delay, ensuring a fair and engaging experience for all. Should there be significant demand, we're open to expanding the number of teams to accommodate more participants.
