Wanted players with nerves of steel and a steady hand.
For those who haven't played this before the aim is to score 3 points on a 3 question brainoff.

So you work out the answer then wait till the timer is nearly at the bottom then hit the answer. The ideal is 1 point for each question but it could be 3 points for one question and 0 for the others, only the player knows.

If you sign up I will send you 3 challenges next Tuesday morning GMT. You will only have 24 hours to play. I will call the challenge Game of 3s so you will know that is what you are playing - pay attention as there are no replays if you forget and get a high score.

All players getting a score of exactly 3 in any one of the challenges I send will be sent a new challenge, again only 24 hours to play, and so on till there is one winner, the Game of 3s Facta Champion.

If you want to be included sign up below. I will also use this thread to post results. I will send practice rounds out for those who sign up early, they will be marked as Practice Game of 3s.

Remember - only 24 hours to play so be quick.

I just sent a practice round, if you have said you are in and didn't get it then please let me know.

 

Note" the real thing won't happen till Tuesday and in the real one you only get 24 hours to play, not the usual 48 so be in quick.

Got another 3!!!!!

It is a very scary game - on one hand you need wine to steady your mind - but on the other hand you should have no wine to steady your hand!

So I whimper instead!!!

I agree killer - knowledge of the answer is not necessarily an advantage it all comes down to the trigger finger and nerves!

Although not knowing the answer is definitely a disadvantage.

Declaring a 3-way tie for 2nd place: myself, Nemesis and Saguingoira.

 

Hope you enjoyed it we will play it again some time there is a gap. Or any of you can run it as it doesn't need any of the scores programs to do it.
