Rules

  • No more than 6 people per team.
  • Teams must register by 12:00 p.m., Friday April 3, 2020. 
  • Team names cannot change week to week. Your team name is your name for each Round of Rhodes Live Trivia in which you participate. Choose wisely.  
  • No using technology to assist in finding answers! We all signed the Honor Code, it applies here. 
  • There will be four rounds with eight questions in each round. The topics of each question in a round will be announced at the beginning of the round. 
  • The team decides how many points to bet on each question, based on the topic of each question. In each round, the following points may be bet one time only:  8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (For example: A team may not trust it’s knowledge of Science, so may decide to bet only 1 point for that question, but may decide to bet 8 points on a Sports question). There will be time after topics are announced to determine how many points to allow for each question. Do not switch point values after questions have been read. Again: HONOR CODE
