Rules

Round 1

This round will be a crossword round in which every team will have to complete the crossword with a given time limit. The crossword will be around facts from the world of literature and pop culture. The teams who fail to complete the crossword in the given time limit will get eliminated immediately. Teams will get points based on how fast they complete the task the number of questions they get right.

Round 2

Following up with second round, participants will be asked to pick up a chit (one from each team) and the other members can ask maximum 20 questions to guess what's written on the chit, with the time limit of 5 mins. The member who picks up the chit can only answer the questions using yes or no.

Rules

Round 3

Only five teams will go through for the last round, these teams will be the ones who have the highest points. These five teams will compete on a life-sized snake and ladders board. Where instead of rolling a dice, each team will proceed based on the answers they give. Only on team member will be on the board while the rest will be seated.

Just as the rules of snakes and ladders if one reaches the bottom of a ladder then they must climb up the ladder. But if you get bitten by a snake you come down the snake. The twist is that before this round starts each team will be allotted different starting points on the board based on the number of points they have acquired over the last two rounds. The team with the highest points will be placed higher up on the board and the one with the least of the five teams will be placed at 0. Each tile on the board will have a multiple choice question which needs to be answered within 30seconds. If the team does give the correct answer then based on their time they will take a certain number of steps on the board. And if the team fails to answer the question then they remain on the same tile and in their next turn will receive a new question. The team to reach the last tile first will be the team that wins.

Steps taken according to time :
● 30s - 1step forward
● 20s - 3steps forward
● 10s - 5steps forward
● 5s- 7steps forward
