  4. Thou shalt not forget the date of the quiz and walk into the venue one day early or (Gods forbid) one day late.
  5. Honour thy teammate(s).**
  6. Thou shalt not kill your opponents.***
  7. Thou shalt not ditch your partner and team up with someone else unless the said partner has been fixed up with someone else.
  8. Thou shalt not steal your answers from Google.
  9. Thou shalt use the best of your ability to outplay your neighbour.
  10. Thou shalt feel free to covet your neighbour’s score and beat it.
  11. Thou shalt never leave any answer unanswered, even (especially) at the cost of making a complete idiot of yourself.
  12. Thou shalt always uphold the highest standards of quizzing.

*For the duration of the quiz.
**They’re probably the ones who’ll save your sorry ass at some point of the quiz.
