Welcome to Game of Timers on GMAT Club!

Game of Timers is a team-based competition based on solving GMAT questions to win epic prizes!
Starting July 1st, compete to win prep materials while studying for GMAT!


You MUST Register to participate - Please click the Join the Competition Button Below

The competition has Started!
Questions are Posted Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, and Fri at 8AM PST/11 AM EST


July 18

(You have one hour from the time of posting to earn Bonus GOT Points for the Timer and 24 hours for the Explanations. Note that your explanations will be hidden for 24 hours until the OA is revealed.)

All Question Links for the GOT Competition are here




How do I Participate?
First, you need to register. Then starting on July 1st, you can start competing by attempting questions with the timer and posting explanations to never-before-seen questions. You and Your Team will receive points for a number of activities as well as opportunities for bonus points. See below the point earning table for details about activities and points. Team and Individual points earned will be reflected on this page below in your Dashboard.


What Do You Mean "Team-Based"?
This competition is team-based, which means one of the 4 teams will win. All winning team members will receive prizes.


What Prizes are Available?
Big thanks to our sponsors (see the full list of sponsors below) we have lots of prizes for both the winning team and also the Top 3 players in each team.

Total Prize value: over $25,000 The prize list is still expanding and we will update it as more prizes are added.


When Do We Start? When Are Winners Announced?
Game of Timers Schedule:
    June 25th: Registration Opens
    July 1st: Competition Begins at 8 AM PST/11 AM EST/8:30 PM IST

Will Everyone Win Prizes?
No :) But about 600 people will
The team that gets the most points at the end of the competition, will win. Every member on the winning team will receive access to the GMAT Club Tests for 2 weeks.
The top 3 players on each of the 4 teams will have a choice of the top prizes (the winning team's 3 top users will have the first pick), and then the next 9 will choose their prizes based on the point ranking
The remaining prizes will be distributed among the users based on the points earned. Each user is limited to 1 prize. We have a lot of prizes and expect close to 600 people getting something (Full disclosure: majority of those, around 500 will be getting GMAT Club tests)



How Many Teams Are There?
There is a total of 4 teams: White Walkers, Wildlings, Westerosis, and Dothrakis


Can I Choose My Team?
No, assignment is random. You will be given your team name when you Join the Competition. Also, your avatar will reflect your team's colors


Which Team am I on?
You can review the roster for the teams: White Walkers, Wildlings, Westerosis, and Dothrakis
You can also look at your avatar and the label at the top - the color corresponds to one of the 4 teams

Hi bb
Thank you so much for making an amazing platform, which gives chance for making competition, for GMAT aspirants.
Could you announce that which time zone (e.g., Pacific Time Zone or something like that..) will be used for posting the question?
Thanks__

Dang it bb ,

I worked through more than 50 timers in a day, but literally one day too early.
You are an evil genius.

Pretty cool initiative!

Edit: I realized it was about a week too early.
Am I in a disadvantage because I am a White Walker in the middle of Summer? :dazed

Changing my status to "evil genius" :twisted:

P.S. Yes, the timer points will start adding up beginning from July 1st and no, we do not have any team specialties, not at this time yet ;-) but it is a good idea!
