The Amazing Race

The most awaited event in Quark is back, and this time with new challenges to tantalize your brain. With more than 400 participants in Quark '11 and promises to get even bigger, it's bound to eke out every small component of your knowledge pool. So pit your skills against the very best and brace yourself for a breathtaking 2-day journey. The contestants will be tested in general knowledge, science, business, technology, and various other topics plus a really good eye for little things around you that most people won't look twice at.  The fastest to crack the puzzle and find the treasures stands to win prizes worth thousands.

Prizes worth INR 15,000 to be won.






1. There will be four rounds of increasing difficulty covering the entire campus according to the map given to you.

2. Participants will be first provided with a puzzle question, usually a visual connect question, for which they are to give a 'Connect' which is a single word or a sentence that links all the items in the puzzle shown to you. You can give the answer immediately, or choose to answer later. You can also skip the question for a penalty.

3. On answering, you proceed to the treasure round. In the treasure round, you will be provided with clues and accordingly you have to solve it by taking a picture which fits correctly and justify your answer.
