By next week, the third Professor Layton game should be released in Europe as well as Australia (it's already out in North America). To celebrate its release, friendcodes.com is having a special event. Unlike past release events where we hosted online tournaments, this format will be quite different. It shall be ... a test. To make this more interesting, not all of the questions are related to Professor Layton. They might be related to simple algebra, world geography, science, or maybe even about friendcodes.com.
