Google Games FAQ
Q. I competed in Google Games last spring at a Google office. Can I participate?
You are able to participate in the games. However, your team will not be eligible to win prizes to ensure a level playing field for all teams participating.
Q. Can we have fewer than five members on our team?
A. Yes, but we strongly recommend having the maximum number of members – any less and you’ll lose your competitive edge.
Q. Can we replace a member before the start of the event?
A. Sure. Just let us know via email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include: the full name and email of the new team member, the full name of who is being replaced, your school name and your team name.
Q. Do I need to bring my own laptop if the event is not in a computer lab?
A. It will give your team a competitive advantage to have all members work from their own laptop in the challenges. If you don’t have your own, see if you can borrow one from a friend. And don’t forget the charger!
Q. Will food be provided?
A. We’ll have pizza as long as it lasts!
Q. When will our team receive a confirmation about the Games?
A. After the registration deadline, we will reach out to confirm team selection and provide more details 3-4 days before the event.
