The object of the game is to be the Brain Team that answers the most questions correctly and scores the highest total points.
Brain Teams will be asked a series of questions in different categories. After each question a limited time will be provided for teams to confer and record their answer. The faster you answer, the more points you will earn.
Each Brain Team will appoint a captain who is responsible to choose and record the answers for the team.
The amount of time allotted for each question will be indicated and counted down on the game screens.
Brain Cells are a way for a team to increase its final score. You can purchase several brain cells over the evening at $100 each. If you answer the question correctly, you will receive bonus points. If you answer the question incorrectly, you do not lose additional bonus points.
Individual teams can "challenge" each other on their respective total scores for the evening. Any team deciding to participate will fill out a Challenge Request identifying the team they want to challenge and the amount of the challenge. If accepted, the challenge and amount are posted on the "Challenge Board". The loser donates the amount of the challenge to Invest in Kids.
At the end of the competition, the Brain Team with the highest point score wins and will be presented with the Battle Cup. In the case of a tie, there will be playoff rounds until a winner is determined.
Brain Teams are allowed to try to distract or confuse other Brain Teams in the pursuit of points. The only requirement we place on Teams is that all Brain Teams must enjoy themselves immensely.
