E-Tambola, the annual housie game by Quantinuum

E-Tambola, the annual housie game conducted by Quantinuum was held on 21st and 22nd of September. The event was a housie game where tickets were sold to the participants and they were required to strike out the numbers on the tickets. However Quantinuum added an interesting angle to the game by putting questions for every number on the tickets. Total number of tickets sold for the event was 250 which included participation from various specializations. The game was conducted in two phases. The first phase was an online quiz on the 21st September, 2011 where the participants were sent online questions on their mail-ids. Here we found winners for three categories: Early 5, First Line & Top 10. Next phase was conducted on 22nd September, 2011 in which the participants were asked to come with their tickets for the main event. The questions were given on the spot and the answers were on their tickets. The event it self was a good mix of Logic, knowledge and Luck.  Following were the winners in various categories:
