(Q) How many times can i enter?
(A) You only need to submit proof (photo or video of your system or a screenshot captured via image share or Miiverse) once to complete a challenge, but you can enter multiple times per game if you wish to compete for the high score and win £20 eShop Credit.

(Q) Where can I view the high scores and prize draw entries?
(A) Daily Score Updates will be tweeted every evening on the @StreetPassUK Twitter account, and are also available to view, along with prize draw entries, on the SPUK Challenge database at:

(Q) Do i have to complete all 4 challenges to be in the prize draw?
(A) No, you only need to complete 1, but completing more challenges gets you additional entries.

(Q) I don’t own any of the games, does that mean I can’t enter?
(A) Mario & Sonic Rio 2016 and Metroid Prime: Blast Ball are free to download from the 3DS eShop, so everyone should be able to compete in at least two of the challenges.

(Q) How is an overall winner determined? I want that sweet certificate…
(A) The players who hold the High Scores for each of the 4 Challenges must compete in a mystery 5th challenge to determine an overall winner. If, however, a player holds more High Scores than the others then they would be declared the winner.

    As someone who has completed Mario and Sonic 2016, I know that the outfits won during progression of that game affect how far a person can jump via stat boosts, so those with the game would potentially have an advantage over those without it. Just maybe something to think about and perhaps decide on whether to allow or not.

    Hi Okakualiice: As stated above, Challenge #1 uses the ‘demo’ of the game. Of course, from the screenshots submitted as proof, it’d be nigh on impossible to tell whether it was from the demo or the full game – but, as the rule above says you must use the demo, if a player uses anything other than the 7 characters available in the demo in their submission then their submission will be accepted as valid.
