After years of war, the world’s kingdoms have come to an agreement. Every five years, teams representing the elves, goblins, and treefolk will compete in a grand tournament of dragon jousting. You have the important job of recording the scores for the inaugural tournament. But, you overslept and the games are already underway. Can you figure out the real score of each match? Alex Gendler shows how.

Lesson by Alex Gendler, directed by Artrake Studio.

This riddle is adapted from a puzzle that originally appeared in Puzzles for Pleasure, by E.R. Emmet.
