Stage 2

Introduction

A Stage 2 is a set of questions (usually six, one for each team in the finals of a quiz) with one common connection.The points system of a Stage 2 gives the team cracking the connection points based on when the Stage 2 is cracked, highest points on the first question and steadily diminishing thereafter. Consequently, the fundas connecting the answer to the Stage 2 will get less vague as the round progresses.
