The Easter holidays have passed, and you might think we have forgotten to create a challenge. Good news! There will be a game, and it will last for 5 days. Ready? Here is the deal…

The #IDATrivia game! Starting today, we will post a pair of questions each day until Friday, 21 April. All questions will be related to IDA. Read them carefully, check our website, take a look at Igor’s tips, and send your guesses to Attention! Submissions made after the deadlines will not be considered. The deadlines will be published with each round of questions. If all your answers are correct, you will participate in a raffle, and on the following day, we will pick and announce a winner. Each day we will give a different prize. Wondering what the awards are? That’s a mystery… and we will keep it secret. If you win, you will find out what your prize is at the time of the delivery.

If you think you are an IDA whiz, this should be a walk in the park for you. So let’s find that out…
