Use the numbered keys on your keyboard to enter your answer before the other player does.
You can claim a Transum virtual trophy for winning the tug of war.
Unfortunately not enough questions were answered correctly for a trophy to be awarded.
Try another level by clicking on a tab above or see the other Pairs games below.
A game for two players or teams testing their speedy reactions.
If playing this game on a computer with a keyboard the row of number keys above the letters should be used. One player represents the red team and uses the keys 1 to 5 while the other player represents the blue team and uses the keys 6 to 0. The ENTER key can be used instead of the 'next' button.
By answering correctly the marker on the tug of war rope will move a little. The objective is to pull the marker past the yellow marker post on your side of the game. Incorrect answers cause the marker to move in the opposite direction.
An even better setup is to use to remote keypads, one for each player or team.
If the use of the number keys is causing confusion (for versions of this game requiring numeric answers) letters can be used instead. The red team would use the keyboard keys Q to T while the blue team wouls use Y to P. Use the button below to change the display to show letters.
