Scoring & Prizes

Help Us to Solve the Puzzle of Blood-Related Cancers!

Three puzzles of increasing difficultly will be solved by all contestants in a timed fashion. There will be a 20-minute time limit for completing each puzzle.

The puzzles will be scored using a system similar to that of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Points will be awarded for both accuracy and speed of solving. The rules will be described in detail before the competition begins.

The top 3 scorers during the preliminary competition will be asked to solve the fourth and most difficult puzzle on large easels in front of the other competitors to decide the champion of the tournament. The first of the three finalists to finish with a perfect grid will be the winner of the event.

First, Second and Third Place Prizes will include a trophy and Crossword-related gifts.

Random drawings will be held for other crossword-related prizes during the event.
