BEFORE YOU START THE GAME, PLEASE READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY.
First things first: All tasks are solvable.
There are different levels of task: easy ones for warming up, more difficult tasks and also teeth-breakingly difficult tasks.
Some tasks may be easier to solve for some participants than others, but with enough persistence everyone should be on an even playing field.
Add to this discipline, patience and self-confidence and you will be on the right path.
It is about your mental flexibility, perceptiveness, way of thinking and understanding of what the clues are asking you to do. Everything depends on what kind of thinker you are.
There are no tasks requiring in-depth knowledge of maths, chemistry, coding language or web technologies. Everyday life skills and a good level of college education are sufficient to solve most of the tasks in our contests.
Once again, we want to remind you that the tasks in this contest are not a test of intelligence and solving them has nothing to do with your IQ.
The answers are almost always just in front of you, looking right at you or hiding somewhere in front of you, on the screen, in the text, in between or behind it.
This is a skill-based personal contest assessed on time performance. You win if you come first.
To add some intrigue, we spiced up tasks with additional details to make them more time-consuming. This is just to push you to go the extra mile, and will give all contestants an equal chance. Even though all tasks are solvable.
If you don’t manage to solve all the tasks during the contest, you will still be able to continue solving them without claiming any prize even once the contest is over.
YOU WILL NEED
You will need: paper, pencil or pen, and a printer could be useful to print out some of the tasks.
