The Qualifiers are multiplication-only 60 second rounds beginning with just the 2s, then the 3s and so on up to the 12s.
The top 16 qualifiers will proceed to the Quarter Finals where they will be split into 2 random groups of 8. Each group has a head-to-head 60 second round, facing identical questions up to 12x12, including division.
The top 4 from each group proceed to the Semi Final where the same happens - they are split into 2 random groups of 4. As with the Quarter Final, the Semi Final is a 60 second head-to-head for each group.
The fastest three will proceed to the Grand Final. The Grand Final is a 3 minute head-to-head and the winner is the one who has correctly answered the most questions. In the event of a tie, the winner will be the one that has incorrectly answered the fewest questions and if there is still a tie, we will repeat the 3-minute battle!
