Rules and Prize Information

  • All participants must abide by the following game rules.

    1) You do not have to be a BYU student to participate in Cosmo Quest, however you MUST be a BYU student with valid student ID to win any prizes, one prize per player.

    2) Points are awarded on an individual basis, but you can work on missions with members of your own household.

    3) All photo and video submissions WILL be reviewed. If a submission fails to meet mission requirements the submission will be deleted and the participant will be notified so they can try again.

    4) Blatant incorrect submissions (ie not relevant to the mission description) will result in a warning. Additional blatantly incorrect submissions will result in expulsion from the game.

    5) Submissions which are of a disrespectful nature or violate the BYU Honor Code in any way will result in a warning. Additional violations will result in expulsion from the game.

    6) Be respectful. This includes respect for all BYU campus policies and COVID-19 safety procedures. Please be considerate and do not disrupt the activities of campus facilities, other students, faculty, and staff.

    7) Moving, removing, or in any way adjusting clues or other game-specific content will result in a point penalty and possible expulsion from the game.

  • Case submissions will be reviewed throughout the game and following the game close time. Upon final assessment of submission accuracy, prizes will be awarded based on the final points collected. In the situation of a tied score names will be drawn randomly and prizes awarded accordingly (ie two players are tied for the 7th highest score, their names will be randomly drawn and one player awarded the 7th place prize and the other the 8th place prize).
