How the Relay Battle Works

There are 24 questions in each round.  Each team has their own judge and timekeeper.  Once the Battle has begun, each team sends one member to their judge to get a Battle Question.  If they know the answer, they answer it and run back to their team for the next member to run to the judge and get another question.
If they don't know the answer, they run back to their team, ask them the question, then run back to their judge to provide the answer. All the while there are other teams Battling at the same time.  First team to finish all 24 questions stops that Battle Round.  The team with the most points/correct answers, wins !
