Geography Gems Sign-up November 2017

WELCOME TO Geography Gems
Consider yourself a geography whiz?
Is geography your forte?
Is your atlas your best friend?
Do you count time zones in your sleep?
Are you a closet cartologist or a vexed vexillogist?
Do you play spin the globe at parties?
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 Geography Gems Tournament will commence on Monday November 27th, 2017 at approximately 8.15 am GMT
The rules are listed below. To take part, simply post “I’m in” in this thread. Sign-up closes 1am Monday the 27th GMT.

GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION

Competition will consist of six (6) different geography subject brainoffs of 10 questions being sent everyday for five days - a total of 30 different geography subjects. You will receive brainoffs from ‘JMK’.

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.

Just to make it interesting!
We will be running a rally competition alongside the Geography tournament. If you sign up for the Geography Tournament you will be automatically entered in the rally comp, although if you don't play it won't affect your Geography Tournament scores as these will be totally separate.
You will get one geography subject rally each day for the five days. These will be in the subjects:

Coats of Arms - National
Flags
Capitals
World Seas
Which region

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 fall through a challenge without being able to play please PM JMK immediately as it may be able to 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.
