WELCOME TO Sizzling Science
Consider yourself a science whiz?
Is science your forte?
Is your lab coat your best friend?
Do you recite the periodic table in your sleep?
Are you a closet chemist or a fun-loving physicist?
Do you play Name that Plant at parties?
Does your rock collection contain more actual stones than Rolling Stones?
Or do you just want a bit of fun?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then this is the tournament for you.
The Sizzling Science Tournament will commence on Monday June 26th , 2016 GMT.
The rules are listed below. To take part, simply post “I’m in” in this thread. Sign-up closes 1am Monday June 26th GMT.

GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION

Competition will consist of six (6) different Science & Nature subject brainoffs of 10 questions being sent everyday for five days - a total of 30 different Science & Nature subjects. You will receive brainoffs from ‘Tournament’. Only the Tournament Organiser and her Partner have knowledge of the subjects to be sent. Hopefully there will be something to suit everyone.

The competition will be an individual one but you will be playing in groups in a similar manner to the Decathlon. The individual with the highest cumulative total wins. A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum. In the case of a tie The Tournament Organiser or her Partner will send three (3) specific subject brainoffs to break the tie. Awards will be given at the end of the tournament for whatever takes the fancy of Tournament Organiser and her Partner.

Just to make it interesting!
We will be running a rally competition alongside the Science tournament. If you sign up for the Science Tournament you will be automatically entered in the rally comp, although if you don't play it won't affect your Science Tournament scores as these will be totally separate.
You will get one Science & Nature subject rally each day for the five days. These will be in the subjects:
Chemical Names
Element Groups
Powers - Mathematics
Animal Collectives
Constellations

The winner will be the person with the highest total for the 5 rallies. Scores will not be capped.

In case the Factacular site hiccups, we will spring into action and resolve issues as soon as the site is up and running and continue with the competition. We do respectfully ask that everyone play their challenges as soon as possible after receiving them --- you will be less likely be affected if the site goes down. We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours on the last day of a challenge. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches.

If you drop through a brainoff without being able to play contact JMK asap as the challenge may be able to be reset. Do not refresh the page whist playing as this will result in a 0 score and cannot be reset.

The Tournament Organiser or her Partner volunteer their own time, so have some patience with the resolution of any problems that you may encounter and expect that there may be delays in the immediate posting of results as these are updated manually. Please send a private message to JMK if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by Tournament Organiser or her Partner are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
So…
Invite other members to come and play! Let’s see a spirit of fun and lots of friendly comments in the brainoffs. Remember - it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.

Looks like we may have to delay this one till next month as I cannot currently send brainoffs.
If you are logged in to the site don't log off or you may not be able to get back in.

We also have a Facebook group which has updates any time Facta is having difficulties. If you want to join PM me as I need to be able to associate your Fb name with your Facta username so I know who to let in to the group.
