Recommendations for question authors

for intellectual games “Mind Games”

1. When compiling questions, be sure to indicate their authors, as well as the sources that you used.

2. You can not send already published or borrowed from television and

radio broadcast questions.

3. Depending on the complexity of the questions, their “cost” will be from 1 to 3 points on a three-point system.

4. It is desirable that questions reflect various topics. Questions are welcome on literature, history and the role of the great blind in world history,

5. Some of the questions can be framed by phonogram fragments or tracks of films and performances, instrumental works and arias, modern compositions and songs of past years, as well as the sounds of the surrounding world and familiar voices. The duration of the track should not exceed 1 minute, the recommended track time is 30 seconds. The necessary sound materials are sent along with the questions (in electronic form) and recorded on a disk or flash card are provided to the Organizing Committee upon arrival at the game.

6. It is not recommended to ask questions focused solely on visual perception or which can only be answered by local residents. You can ask about the facts from the biographies of artists or the plots of famous paintings, but you should not be interested in the colors of the coat of arms of your city. An example of incorrectness is the question about the color of the oldest line on the Moscow Metro map. A visually impaired person, especially one who lives in the provinces, cannot know this.

7. Try to avoid numeric answers, especially specific dates. Preference is given to tasks that can be performed using logical thinking, comparing several well-known facts. The question has become almost classic: “What instrument is named after the great blind man?”. If you realize that instruments can also be musical, then it will not be difficult to recall the legendary storyteller Bayan.

8. It is necessary to take into account the level of education and the sphere of interests of the majority of intellectuals.

9. What matters is the textual elegance and imagery, the accuracy and brevity of the presentation of questions, as well as the originality of the author’s thinking.
