An entrant MUST deliver to the Promoter (by a means determined by the Promoter) copies of any documents the Promoter may request establishing eligibility to enter or win, including evidence of age, residence or identity. The Promoter may make one or more requests for such documents. Once the identity of documents available is established, an entrant must deliver requested copies within 7 days of being asked to do so. At the Promoter's request, an entrant MUST also, within 7 days of being asked, allow the Promoter to inspect and copy the original of any such document.
- The Promoter may, at its absolute discretion, declare any or all entries made by an entrant invalid if the entrant: (i) fails to establish their entitlement to enter the Competition to the Promoter's satisfaction; or (ii) fails to produce items as required by condition 11 or produces items that, in the Promoter's opinion, are illegible, stolen, forged, reconstructed, altered, incomplete or tampered with in any way; or (iii) in the Promoter's opinion, tampers with the entry process or benefits from such tampering; or (iv) in the Promoter's opinion, submits an entry which is not in accordance with these conditions.

- A Qualifying Entry is one in which the entrant has correctly answered 16 or more of the quiz questions. The Promoter's decisions as to whether or not an answer is correct cannot be disputed.
- The twenty one Eligible Entrants whose Strategies are judged to be the best according to the Judging Criteria (more effectiveness & clarity is better) will be invited to participate in the New Zealand Tournament (each an "Invitee") (each invitation is a "Prize").
- If, in the judging, a Strategy that is judged to be one of the twenty one best Strategies according to the Judging Criteria, has been submitted by more than one Eligible Entrant, all the Eligible Entrants who submitted that Strategy will be invited to answer one, or more, further skill questions. The Eligible Entrant whose answer to that further skill question is judged to be the best according to the specified judging criteria for that question, will win a Prize.
