Competition Rules
  • Only a mobile device running the latest version of MM Go is allowed per contestant for use during the competition.
  • The Speedy Math competition is considered an MM Go meetup for people who are qualified for a state level and seeking to qualify for the national level battle. Only those who have collected or will collect at least 10 gold apples in the MM Go account are eligible to register. To participate all three games, meaning +/-, multiplication, and division, no fee but a total of 30 gold apples are needed. Everyone is encourage to sign up even for those who currently have less than 10 gold apple in the account. We will verify the final qualification on the same day as May 11.
  • All contestants will answer all questions independently without external aid of all means except for papers and pencils. If necessary, one pencil and a piece of scratch paper will be provided upon request.
  • A total of 3 games will be conducted: Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division. All tests should be done on the mobile app, MM Go. Three (3) minutes are given for each section. Contestants do not need to participate in all three games but have to stay in the age group that was specified during registration or in the age group according to their date of birth.

  • Although we will not prevent people joining the game remotely as long as they have enough gold apples, trophies and awards (other than virtue gold cups) are for people physically present on site. If two or more on-site contestants tie at the end of a game, the final ranking will be determined by number of mileage points (if tie, then compare number of gold leaves, etc.) accrued in the MM Go accounts.
  • Each contestant may register to compete in only one age group.
  • I M P O R T A N T ! Audience are welcome to sit quietly in the designated area of the game room to watch the game.
