A Participant is invited to answer the question by voting for one of the two displayed Pet Submissions that they feel best answers that question. Each vote will gain ten (10) points for the Pet featured in the winning Submission. The winning Pet Submission will then be displayed again in the next round with the same question repeated along with a new Pet Submission. This will continue into a tenth and final round. A Participant may not vote for their own Pet Submissions. A Participant may vote for each Pet Submission from other participants a maximum of 10 times for a total of 100 points awarded per Pet Submission.

The Participant who voted will earn 5 silver coins for each vote cast and a bonus reward of 5 gold coins for completing the entire Challenge.
