How it Works

Don't use a Jump to Conclusion mat & follow the Rules!

Jump to conclusions
  • The challenges are in no particular order. To start, simply select a challenge and find the answer within the Chronicle demo system interface.

  • Open ended challenges may be attempted 3 times before it is locked out. Multiple choice challenges may only be attempted 1 time before it is locked out.

  • Challenges are worth different point values based on their difficulty. In some cases, even the question itself may be difficult to discern.

  • Hints are available for some challenges, but usually at a heavy point cost.

  • Answer as many of the challenges that you can within the event window. Remember to have fun & be competitive.

    May the savviest Hunter win!
