- GENERAL RULES OF PLAY -
The GlobalBee is a competition of international trivia where teams compete in series of questions provided on paper. The quiz has 2 sessions, each with five rounds of questions. Each round has 10–20 questions. Some questions will be multiple choice, others fill in the blank. Questions increase in difficulty as the quiz progresses. All teams receive the same questions. Each team must elect a scribe to write down their answers and sign the answer sheet. Answers are reviewed after each round. At the end of Session I we will grade and list the teams in place order. There is no elimination process. All teams compete until the end.
Teams are made up of up to 5 players, but only 4 can participate at time. An alternate player can be substituted after any round of questions. At the end of Session II, the winners (team with the most correct answers) will be announced and awarded the GlobalBee trophy. If a tie exists, it will be settled by a “best of” set of questions until a winner is determined.
Awards will also be given to the high scoring college and high school teams.
