MECHANICS You will play with your groupmates and stay in a designated place.

. Only one member of each group will be allowed to play at a time. The group will choose the order in which their members will play. A member must answer w/in 10 seconds.

Youll getMECHANICS the corresponding point if you answer correctly. The group that gets the highest score wins the game. Your total score corresponds to a certain number of points. This will be considered as part of your class standing.

A players MECHANICS as long turn will continue as he/she gets the correct answer. If a member fails to answer the question correctly, his/her turn will end and the next member in the list will play during the groups next turn. Each group is allowed TWO PASSES wherein a player can pass the question to the next player in their group.
