Week 8: 13 January 2004

There seems to be some confusion over what happens in Cup and Plate games if the match is drawn after 120 questions. The position is that the numerically based 'tie breaker' question should be used to settle the matter, with both teams writing their answers down and the team nearest the correct answer being declared the winners. Alternatively, if both teams agree, the supplementary questions can also be asked to the teams, again with both teams writing down their answers and the question master marking the scores. The highest score of course wins. In short: the tie breaker is to be used unless both teams agree on another way to settle it. As usual, the question master's decision is final.

There were a couple of commenst last week about the variety of questions on offer, mainly in respect of sport and aeroplanes, although you could keep all the Bible questions as well as far as I am concerned! Pleae include a variety of questions. I will circulate the guidance notes to the setters of Cup and Plate questions as well from this point on.
