Rules

During the 2020-2021 RLC season, challenges will look a little different. Check in with your local library contact for more information.
  1. Each team will have a maximum of 6 members. No additions or substitutions to the team following the School challenge will be permitted.
  2. Each challenge will have 3 rounds with 10 question in each round. If there is a tie, one round of 3 additional questions will take place. Then if there is still a tie, we go to sudden death.
  3. You have 30 seconds to answer each question. In the case of technological difficulties the judges will be flexible on timing.
  4. One point will be given for each correct answer. Half points are not given. Correct spelling is not necessary, but the judges must be able to identify the word.
  5. The Quizmaster will announce the title of the book, ask the question and then repeat the question. The timer starts after the second reading of the question.
  6. If you don't understand the question, teams may ask the Quizmaster to make the question clearer, but you must ask the Quizmaster to do so as quickly as you can after the second reading of the question.
  7. At the end of the challenge the Quizmaster will announce the official answer to every question. You may challenge an official answer if you believe we have the wrong answer. You may not question whether or not your answer counts.
  8. The decision of the judges is final.
  9. Teams must answer the questions together. They cannot consult with other people, the books, or websites.
