I just wanted to express my admiration for everybody who BUSTED THEIR (proverbial) NUTS to rack up points during this competition. I can't believe that anybody could possibly crack 10,000 freaking points -- and about a dozen of you are on track to do that. It's amazing. I know how hard it is to post kudos-worthy posts on question after question, and I'm exhausted just thinking about what you've all done over the course of the month.

One of the least-pleasant prizes on the board is two hours in a dungeon in a tutoring session with me. (Or with one of our other tutors, all of whom are more pleasant than I am -- I'm basically the Night King of GMAT tutoring. :twisted:) There are more valuable prizes out there (props to MGMAT in particular for offering some generous stuff!), but I'm honored to meet whichever winner is unlucky enough to end up with me. ;)

And more importantly: hey, I bow down to the work ethic of the dozens and dozens of members who have been slugging away at this, day after day. You all deserve cookies.

Congratulations to all team Wildings members for the spectacular win in GOT!!! You all deserved it and maintaining lead in presence of team Dothraki was really tough.
JonShukhrat who performed consistently and raced ahead at the finish line. Mahmoudfawzy83 & LevanKhukhunashvili who were inspiration throughout the competition.ArtyomYom, aarkay, gmatenthureturns, RusskiyLev, kavach,123deepa they were all consistently there in top 10. kavach who came late but stood there in top 10. LeoN88 & nightblade354 who were there to inspire us all the time.Thanks a lot to all those who are not mentioned here but whose contribution to the team performance can not be neglected since top performers of team Dothraki actually outperformed all of us mentioned here. Kudos to all outstanding performers in game GOT from that team. mira93 has set a example for everyone to emulate. MayankSingh and Vinit1 were consistently there in top 3. Team Dothraki could have actually won if the performance of only top 3/10 members was counted for GOT competition. Kudos to Westeros and White Walkers who remained consistently engaged in the game. shridhar786 who could not perform well on last few days because of his GMAT exam but was outstanding performer consistently and was an inspiration for everyone.
Last but not the least, bb, Bunuel, nightblade354 and Skywalker18 who organised this competition so well despite their busy schedules and posted so many interesting questions. They made us think and put our explanations to each question in writing which helped us develop our thinking for GMAT exam. The game required us to be consistent which is a virtue for life. Bunuel and SajjadAhmad who gave us all chances for earning extra 50 points per day. bb was there to resolve all issues with the competition. Outstanding work done by you all!!!
I hope this spirit of healthy competition continues...
All the best GMATClub!

I started this game only on 3rd day. so i dont had any hope to win the prize at all as i was around 70th rank then that too in my team. so i was reluctant and casually working for the first week. only by second week i realised i can earn some prize once i reached 12th rank in my team. then no looking back .I am really happy to end in a 15th position overall . At first for me i studied to beat Vinit1 and Sayon . one small change is vinit was not initially in top 3 he earned that spot by beating everybody in top 10 in last two weeks. Nice hardwork bro .

one more fellow called nick i dont know his suffix properly to tag, somebody help me. i dont know what happened to him in last week. he stopped putting explanations. only because of that he went out of race otherwise he would be in top 5 dothrakis i think.

but for last two weeks for my work the following are the inspiration, especially firas92, who was always with score close enough for last two weeks, so just to keep the spot i have studied more, but in that process i moved above few notches.
so special thanks to
firas92
prashanths
Mizar18
baru
because of them i studied till last day.

( even before 3 days there were 6 people from rank 5 to rank 10 all were in same points ie within 150 points, i am proud to be in dothraki team for having such a intense team at the top level)
the leader has to be mentioned atlast yes mira93 who took his/her time to send pm to fellow dothrakis to motivate to be in the race to win the top notch, a gesture worth to mention. my sincere and special congrats to that person.

As already mentioned my hats off to LevanKhukhunashvili and white walkers for the fight till last. its the fight that matters, as he mentioned that rightly . He started enjoying this drama. what a spirit.
congrats man.

I am really looking forward to prepare my gmat with these kindof motivated guys in the coming months.
so we can form a decent study group . if prepared together we can crack the GMAT above 750 mark, which finally matters

So lets move as a big group guys , all the best for all of us to crack 750 in GMAT.

I think someone in this discussion made a good suggestion to continue some kind of a competition/daily question posting, though without prizes/etc.

Something for the moderator team to consider.... perhaps a week after this competition is over :)

Well... it is pretty much done. All the questions posted, we are just a day away from getting the final scores and then the prize frenzy begins. While we have this lull, I'll take a moment to stop and look back.... It is sad in many ways that this competition is coming to an end. It's been really fun to read the explanations and great to see many people improve and watch the camaraderie. At the same time, I will not miss having to be ready to post kudos, questions, etc. Huge thanks to Bunuel, nightblade354 and especially Skywalker18 for posting the questions and running the competition. It would not be possible without them!

Also, big thanks to the sponsors who have provided the questions (many of these have been written specifically for the competition) and especially for the prizes they have provided.

Thank you bb Bunuel Skywalker18 nightblade354 for this competition. This competition along with daily 30 timer bonus, instilled a lot of discipline in my preparation.

Congratulations to Wildlings for winning the competition. We Dothrakis were constantly trying to catch up but your lead only kept increasing.
Dothraki, we gave a good fight and we had a never say die attitude. There is something we can be proud of:

Average Scores of Top 10:
Dothraki - 10399
Wildlings- 10165
Westeros- 9035
White Walkers- 8772

Yes, we had the most competitive Top 10 among all and we kept pushing despite trailing for three weeks.
Congratulations to Khaleesi mira93 and Khal MayankSingh of the Dothraki for being the highest scorers among all participants. You made us proud.

Westeros and White Walkers had a more intense fight for the Third position than Wildlings and Dothraki had for the First.
Congratulations to both of them as well.

However, the learnings from this competition were great.
I have gained a lot from this competition.
I wish I could have performed better to get some other gift for my prep.
Thanks to all the moderators and creators. :)



Thanks for bringing it up.

UGH. that is lame of them. I am sorry. :facepalm_man:
They also provided a "How to study for the GMAT Course - $69" - if anyone wants to replace their reward with this prize, please PM me


Hi bb & Prasannathawait,

I think there is been confusion between our GMAT kickstarter course & our MBA kickstarter course.

Like Prasannathawait mentioned the GMAT Kickstarter course is available for free on our website, while the MBA kickstarter course is worth $99

I'm providing the links to both the courses on our website for your reference:


At times, we do give out $1 coupon codes to the MBA Kickstarter course for aspirants who have participated in our webinars or attended our workshops.

We are sorry for the confusion and apologize if you feel cheated as this was never our intention.

bb we would like to give out 25 additional coupons to our How to study for the GMAT course which is worth $69.

In this course, we dwell into the science of productivity and neuroscience to make preparation for the GMAT more effective. This is based on our research and experience teaching thousands of students who want to crack the GMAT but just don't know how to study alongside a hectic day job.

Link to the course: https://gmatonline.crackverbal.com/cour ... gmat-test/

bb Bunuel

I am so grateful to you guys for doing this competition.

Posting an explanation has been helping me a lot in my thought process and approach.

Also, I get to realize what topics I am weak at. This is a great benefit. Choice of questions has been great.

For example, I realized yesterday that I need to practice more remainder questions.

I feel that you guys are keeping in mind to post questions covering various topics. So, plenty of different topics are getting covered and while solving, one can figure out, where do I need to put more efforts.

Thank you so so much.

Accumulation of points keeps me motivated and brings me to the platform at 8:30 PM IST sharp to solve questions on time.

Superb initiative. Thank you once again. :thumbup:

Hope to do better in the next couple of weeks!

Wow, I can't thank you guys enough for this great initiative. At the start of it, I just registered for the sake of it. And for the initial days never really posted any explanations, just solved and got the timer points (I wish I hadn't done that). But Randomly while going through the points table I notice the team I am a part of is coming First and I was at the 28th position then. I just thought of contributing to my team (At least to get GMAT CLUB TEST :) ) by posting the solutions. Getting kudos for the right explanations gave me so much motivation that I continued from thereon. Improving my ranking from 28th to 8th last night and now 9th :(. I am really going to miss the 8:30 PM every evening cause no matter what I had blocked this slot just for GOT.

Thanks a ton to the whole team for organizing this event. I am sure it wouldn't have been easy (Getting the questions, posting the questions, getting the sponsors, developing the rules and regulations, the scoring algorithm and what not).

Cheers guys.

I think you’re bringing a great point. The people with the worst scores probably need the most help but I think it would be a really bad competition if we have rewarded the worst performers. The goal of the competition is to push those could do poorly to be better and to strive and even if they don’t win the best price and get the most points, they would still benefit tremendously from putting in an effort and doing their best.

PS. When you’re studying you not benchmarking yourself against someone else. You are benchmarking yourself against yourself from yesterday.

Makes sense. My current score is 580. I am going to take this competition as a push and really gonna give it a try. I will take another mock test after end of the month. Putting it here so that it is public. All geared up.

Hi, I see that there is a healthy participation in the GOT competition. However, I would like to urge bb and all other forum moderators to make a policy to post Official Explanations to the questions after some time. We can decide 72 hrs or 96 hrs or any other time frame to do this irrespective of the number of posts that question gets.
I believe the whole objective of this game is to give gmatclubbers a healthy dose of learning with some fun and excitement. In the absence of official explanation, there is sometimes confusion about the correct answer choice since as per current trend most of the explanations are posted by less mortals ( :idontknow:) and some gmatclubbers may have doubts about the same.
