The Oddeh Reddeh Marathoneh!

Welcome to the Oddeh Reddeh Marathoneh, or as it shall be called henceforth, the TORM! Here at the TORM, we have a large amount of cash available for the winning. However, it doesn't come easily....

This is a large multi-part MARATHON of a contest that will last for several weeks. Note: Brain highly reccommended. Here's how it goes:

How Things Work

Week 1: Qualifiers

Anyone who desires to enter the contest may. The entry fee will be a measly 10k (Please send entry fees to Safety Deposit Box)- however, this does not guarantee that you'll make the TORM. This is simply a qualifier's fee. All Contestants will have one week to answer the problems posted. The TEN players who answer with the most points will advance into the TORM. Everyone else will simply have to sit and watch. You will NOT get refunded your 10k.

Remaining Weeks: Contest

Each week, there will be an assortment of 5 easy, 3 medium, and 2 hard problems. Every Saturday, TWO players will be eliminated due to having too few points. This will continue until only two players remain.

Last Week: Finals

On the final day, there will be a special CHAT CHALLENGE that all may come watch. The two players will face off in a quiz-style showdown. Three questions will be asked, and players will answer in PUBLIC CHAT. He who first answers two of them correctly wins the TORM! Any spectators coming to watch must be quiet when asked or will be immediately booted from the room and disallowed from re-entering.
