HOW TO PLAY AND WIN. During each Game Period, Players will accumulate points based upon answering trivia questions on the performance of professional and collegiate athletes and teams and sporting events taking place during the Game Period, particularly related to events occurring on or about that day. Player is only eligible to receive and answer questions while located at a participating Buffalo Wild Wings® location (“BWW”). The Game will consist of daily answer submissions in a trivia format that tests a Player’s knowledge and skill about various sports. Starting at 11 a.m. ET, or restaurant open, whichever is later, and until 2 a.m, ET, or restaurant close, whichever is earlier (each a “Day”), once a day during the Game Period, and upon Player’s launch of the App or sign-in to the Game on the Site, and a Player’s location is verified to be a BWW location, Player initiates receipt of the trivia questions. Upon the delivery of the first question on any given Day, the Player will continue to receive questions every five (5) minutes for five (5) consecutive hours (for a total of sixty (60) questions) or until the Player leaves BWW, whichever is earlier. A Player may commence the five (5) hour period at any time, but no questions shall be presented after the time cut-off for the Day, regardless of whether Player received questions for the full five (5) hours. Once a question is presented to a Player, a Player will have five (5) minutes to answer that question before the question locks and is no longer available. Players that correctly answer a trivia question will be awarded points pursuant to the description below. Incorrect answers or failure to answer a question within the allotted five (5) minute timeframe shall result in no points. Trivia questions will cease at the conclusion of the five (5) hour period, or if a Player leaves BWW, whichever occurs first, and play cannot be resumed until the next day in the Game Period. To submit an answer to a trivia question, a Player must have entered a correct response within the five (5) minute response time to receive the corresponding points. Once a Player submits an answer to a trivia question, the submission is final and the Player may not change the response. During a time when one or more sporting events are live, Players may have the option to choose to follow a particular sporting event if listed within the Game. If a Player chooses to follow a particular sporting event, the trivia questions will be tailored to the game being followed. A Player is not required to follow a particular sporting event. In the event no live sporting events are scheduled or Player does not select a sporting event to follow, Players will be asked a wide range of general questions about particular sports or athletes for any and all sporting events recently played or being played at a later time.
Player will receive points as set forth below for correctly answering each trivia question presented to him/her during the Game Period.
In addition to earning points by correctly answering trivia questions, Players may also earn points by visiting a participating Buffalo Wild Wings® location on January 1, 2015 during the Initial Game Period and playing the Game while at that location between the hours of 1 pm ET-4 pm ET, will earn triple points for correct answers (“Big Day of Play Points”). All points earned during the Big Day of Play game period shall be automatically included in the Player’s total score for this Game. However, to be entered into the Big Day of Play contest, a Player must separately accept the Official Rules for that contest, located at http://www.bdubsgamebreak.com/GameBreak-Live/BigDayofPlay/Rules. Players of this Game will not automatically be entered to win the Big Day of Play contest, but points earned during the game period of the Big Day of Play contest shall automatically be reflected in a Player’s score for this Game.
