SundayIQ Rules and Tie Breakers

 Weekly Rules

 Puncuality
Weekly picks should be completed prior to the kickoff of the first game of each week. Each game that you miss will be scored as incorrect and all Bonus Point and Tie Breakers selections will be locked.

It is strongly advised that you do NOT make picks after 1300 EST on Sundays, unless you wish to be mocked by your friends for being ranked as an "Aunt Ruth".

 Reliability
In the event that you COMPLETELEY FORGET to make your weekly predictions, your season's IQ will not be impacted.

You must preserve a minimum of 75% participation throughout the season to be eligible for any of our Championship titles.

 Weekly Tie Breakers

The top 3 players of each week recieve Charity Pool tokens, in the event of a tie the predicted combined score of the week's first game will be used as the 1st tie breaker.

The user with the closest prediction(without going over) will be awarded the win, if no winner can be identified, the user with the closest prediction (that exceeded the target) will be granted the win.

If no tie breaker prediction is made by a user, they will be disqualified from the tie breaker calculation.

If the 1st tie breaker fails to determine a winner(resulting from two or more users selecting the exact same tie breaker prediction), the Rock/Paper/Scissor challenge will be used as a 2nd tie breaker.

If no Rock/Paper/Scissor prediction is made by a user, they will be disqualified from the tie breaker calculation.

If a winner is still not determined, a coin toss will be used to decide the outcome. The first team name sorted alphabetically will be heads, and the second team will be tails.

Note: If an NFL game end in a tie, all players will receive a loss for the game; this includes the weekly lock picks.

 Season Tie Breakers

If a winner is still not determined, a coin toss will be used to decide the outcome. The first team name sorted alphabetically will be heads, and the second team will be tails.
