Time for Game of Threes! This diabolical game requires nerves of steel and a whole heap of luck. You will be sent a 3 question brainoff and the aim is to score 3 points exactly. The ideal being one point on each question but could be 3 points on one.
I'll send the challenges out to those who sign up here. Will be sent around the time the dailies go out, give or take an hour or so and they will be 24 hour challenges so 1 day to play them.
Post below to be added to the list.

Will it be obvious that they are Game of Threes (or Games of Three?) and not something else?

Count me in whichever.

I'll try.

Does this mean that you wait to the last fraction of a second to answer? i.e. score 1 point out of the possible 250 per question? Am I doing my usual thing of not understanding rules and needing to read for a while instead of posting silly questions, and anyway it all becomes clear when the game is sent....

Don't bother to answer, I'm in .

You are right Ruby. It won't be any clearer when you get the challenge, it will be just like a normal brainoff when you get it except it will be titled Game of Threes and only have 3 questions.

It requires nerve and I suggest you have a little practice to see when you need to click to get as close to 1 as possible.

So the winner of round 1 was Saguingoira. Nemesis was second and Jackson and I tied for third.

In case you are wondering a score of 3 in a brainoff tops all other scores. So the person with the most 3s wins. In the event of a tie the scores from each round that are closest to 3 win, unless it is a 0 which is counted as a loss for that round.

I accidentally sent a 10 question brainoff for the 2nd round. Ignore it. Or use it to practice.

The winner of round 2 was Nemesis with Ruby Franks 2nd and bertie and jackson were tied for third place.

I will send out the third and final round shortly. Remember you have 24 hours to play these brainoffs.

Sorry for the delay, forgot I hadn't posted this.
Nemesis was first. I was 2nd and Helen was third.
Will probably run a few more of these over the holidays.
