How to play Brain Sprint™ + Official Rules

The primary objective of Brain Sprint™ is to complete a “sprint” (correctly answering 12 trivia questions in a single game).  The secondary objective is to do it FAST…to complete the sprint in the shortest amount of time possible.

When you start a game, the game clock will begin and you will see the first trivia question and multiple choice answers.  Select the answer you think is the correct one. If you are right, the next question will appear.  Continue answering correctly to continue through all 12 questions and complete the sprint as quickly as you can.

TIP: Up to three times a game you may use the “50/50” button, which appears in the last leg of the sprint. When you use one, two of the wrong answers are removed, making it easier to choose the correct answer. There is no cost to use the 50/50 button.

TIP: Though you’ll still want to do it quickly, feel free to search the web (e.g. do a Google search), to find answers.

If at any time you choose a wrong answer, you may replace the question you answered wrong with a new question (at the cost of 1 TCredit) and continue towards the completion of the sprint…or you can simply end the game there.  You may purchase up to five replacement questions during any one game.


PRIZE POINTS

While the objective of Brain Sprint is to complete sprints quickly, you’re also earning a separate set of “Prize Points” (points for earning recognition and prizes).

  • Earn 100-1000 Prize Points (depending on difficulty level) for each correctly-answered question.

There are also three ways to earn BONUS Prize Points:

  • For each completed sprint, you’ll earn 500 bonus Prize Points
  • Earn up to 1000 additional bonus Prize Points for each individual question answered faster than the average for all players.
  • There’s also a major speed bonus of up to 1000 bonus Prize Points for how fast you finish the overall sprint.  You’ll start each game with 1000 points.  After two minutes of game time, you will lose 45 points every 15 seconds.

PRIZES

Each time you achieve a “Super Sprint” (completing a sprint with 8000 or more Prize Points), you’ll receive a free entry in the Daily Crown drawing for the following day where you can win up to 1000 Rewardicals! You get 285 chances to win with each Daily Crown entry!

If you are in the top 10 for most Brain Sprint Prize Points scored during the month, we’ll send you a free Brain Sprint Champion t-shirt (shown at right)!  Limit 2 t-shirts per player/year.


PLAY & WIN LIMITS

You may play up to ten Brain Sprint games daily.  There is no cost to play Brain Sprint or win prizes!


REWARDICALS

Win or lose, for each TCredit spent playing Brain Sprint, you’ll earn 10 Rewardicals, redeemable for free Bitcoin, gift cards, silver bullion, and more! If you’re an SFI Affiliate, you can also exchange your Rewardicals for unlimited VersaPoints, PSAs, CSAs, and more!

  11. There is also a Brain Sprint Leaderboard badge for Prize Points scored all-time. The minimum leaderboard rank to receive a Brain Sprint Leaderboard badge is 500. Add bronze trim by achieving a top 200 rank. Add silver trim by achieving a top 50 rank. Add gold trim by achieving a top 10 rank.  You can view the Brain Sprint Leaderboard HERENote: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, Prize Points won are reduced by 30% every 30 days. Example: You scored 8000 points today.  30 days from now, those points are now worth 5600 points. 60 days from now, those points are now worth 3920 points. 90 days from now, those points are now worth 2740 points.  And so on.  Keep playing to maintain your leaderboard position!

Tips for winning Uber-Picks

OVERVIEW

If you love sports, you’ll love playing Uber-Picks!  By playing Uber-Picks alongside your favorite sports, you’ll add even more excitement and enjoyment to being a sports fan!

The objective of Uber-Picks is to tally the highest score possible by correctly picking winning teams of sports of your choosing, but that’s only the start.  You’ll maximize your score by strategically assigning “Confidence Points” to each of your picks (the more confident you are of a pick, the more points you should assign).

For each game you pick correctly, you’ll earn the number of points you assigned to that game.  Note: Games that end in a tie or are cancelled will be scored as a correct pick.

Uber-Picks also features “Sidekicks”–which you can use to boost your score even further and add even more fun to playing.

Choose the Uber-Picks sports of your choice to play from our games index HERE.

PRIZES

Win shares of the big weekly Zackpots (10,000 Rewardicals per game) by posting one of the 50 highest scores (the total of the points you’ve assigned to winning teams, plus Sidekick Bonus Points).

Also earn cool badges and compete for the top spots on the Uber-Picks Leaderboards!  See details below.

Continue arranging your list until you’re satisfied with the positions for all matches.  Your selections are saved automatically.
5. Sidekicks: Located at the bottom of the dashboard, Sidekicks are optional “mini games” you can play during the main game to win bonus points (a great way to outscore your fellow Uber-Picks players).  To play, just click the tab for the number of points you’d like to win. Each tab displays a different question, along with the cost (if any) to play. Simply enter your answer in the available field and click Save. You can choose one, several, or all of the Sidekick tabs to play!  Any points you win playing the Sidekicks is added to your total score.

Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, points are reduced by 20% every 30 days.

Being amongst the top 500 on any Uber-Picks Leaderboard also earns you badges (see following BADGES section for more information).

BADGES

An Uber-Picks contest entry earns you the “In it to win it!” badge–yours until the contest ends.  Tip: By participating regularly in the weekly Uber-Picks contests, you can keep possession of this badge continually.  Note that once you’ve earned an Uber-Picks WINNER badge, you’ll no longer see this badge (it is supplanted by the Winner badge).

2. Posting one of the 50 highest scores for any Uber-Picks contest earns you the WINNER badge (or an upgraded “X-Times Winner” version of the badge) for that individual sports category. Make the top 50 three times to add bronze trim to your badge. Make the top 50 five times to add silver trim to your badge.  Make the top 50 ten times to add gold trim to your badge.
