Season 78 - Tie-Break

The Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese zodiac is a classification scheme that assigns an animal and its reputed attributes to each year in a repeating 12-year cycle. Name as many of the twelve animals as possible.


Rules for the Tie-breaker: List as many of Chinese zodiac animals as possible. Naming an animal is not a part of the Chinese zodiac will deduct a point. Naming currencies in overseas territories will neither deduct nor award a point. You can answer several times until 7 o’clock CET tomorrow (19 June). There will be no continuous update of who has the most correct answers, nor will the quizmaster answer whether or not an answer is correct or incorrect when it has been submitted. Players are allowed to delete submitted answers, if they realise an answer given might be incorrect.

If two or more players finish with the same number of tie-break points, the player who has given the most correct answers (but also more incorrect answers) is the winner. If the players are still tied they will get a new question, where they will be asked for one answer to a question they will not know the exact answer to. The player who comes closest to the correct answer will then be declared the winner.

Everybody can play along of course, but it will not give anybody additional points - the-tie break is only meant to sort out the ranking of the top players.

Example:

Player one names the following animals: A, B, C and D and X, Y and Z

Player two names the following animals: A, B, and C and X

A, B, C and D are correct answers X, Y and Z are wrong answers

Therefore Player one has a score of 1 (4 correct minus 3 incorrect) and Player two has a score of 2 (3 correct minus 1 incorrect)

Thus Player two wins with a score of 2 even if player one had more correct answers overall.
