The Three Rules of SharePoint Tournament!
The 1st rule of SharePoint Tournament :
Don't talk about SharePoint Tournament! (Well, actually if you can talk about it - that'd really help!). Share it here.
The 2nd rule of SharePoint Tournament :
Only enter once and no Googling. (We actually make it really hard to cheat as you will waste valuable seconds and it's unlikely you will find the answers on Google / Bing).
The 3rd rule of SharePoint Tournament :
Have FUN! Don't think of the Tournament as a serious exam where you will be tested to within an inch of your life! This event is designed to be fun, engaging and will give you an energy boost towards the of the 24 hour Global Conference! (BTW ... you can also change your playing name if you prefer to play anonymously :).

The contest is running on our brand new quiz platform, so is still in beta. In the eventuality that there's a loss of service, then the 3 prizes will either be randomly allocated to one of the contestants. If we are unable to allocate
The SharePoint Tournament starts at 3:05pm UTC and ends at 3:20pm UTC. If you turn up late you can still take part, but you will be given less time. If you turn up when it's over, then you won't be allowed to take part.
