Rules and Scoresheets

Study Guides

Note that we are now producing question set specific study guides to help students access some of the harder material that will come up at tournaments. These guides are created from the specific material contained within the preliminary rounds (Bowl Rounds 1-5; Bee Rounds 1-3) of the Gamma and Beta Question Sets and should be reviewed by all competing students who plan to play those question sets at upcoming tournaments.

Please also note that the rules files found above are the Official Rules for IHBB tournaments. If a situation arises during a tournament for which the applicable rule is not addressed in the file, then the NHBB Official Rules apply.
