If you see the "Loading" message and the game does not appear even after 25 seconds, it is likely that the Internet connection is slow. If the computer seems to have hung, then close all browsers and restart it. If you don't see the "Loading" message, it is possible that your PC does not have the Flash and Shockwave plug-in installed. Usually the application will automatically detect whether or not the requisite plug-in is available. If not, you'll be prompted to follow a link to perform a free download from the Macromedia site at http://sdc.shockwave.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi
It may be that you mistook a Practice Game for the Final Challenge, or it might be a rare case of lost Internet connectivity, or that the session timed out after you started playing the game. Try playing the Final Challenge again.

Practice Games are games designed to help you practice the concepts, principles and applications presented in the QBook. They are not tests or quizzes. By playing the Practice Games over and over--you can play them as many times as you like--you can master the training and understanding of the concepts.
The Final Challenge is like the final exam. It measures your proficiency in the training. You can attempt the Final Challenge only once. We recommend that you attempt the Final Challenge after you have played the Practice Games several times. All questions in the Final Challenge are taken from the Practice Games.
The Hall of Fame (HOF) is the ranking of all the players for this project. This ranking is derived from combined Practice Games scores as an aggregate of the scores from all the practice games the player has played. On the page you will see the top ten players listed along with your name and rank highlighted. You can see all players’ ranking by clicking on the More Scores link. Once you have attained 90% or higher in your Combined Practice Game Scores, you will enter the Hall of Champions (HOC). Note that the HOF and HOC reflect only the Practice Game scores. The Final Challenge scores are normally not made public.
The concept of QGames includes a component of competition. In our experience, we have seen that adults are highly motivated to learn when they are competing against their peers. By seeing your scores published and ranked along with your peers, you'll push yourself to be the best. Normally only the Practice Games scores are made public. Only your manager will be able to see your Final Challenge score.
You can view your Final Challenge scores by clicking QGame Scores/ About My Scores on the Quick Navigation Menu, then clicking the Final Challenge tab. Notice on the About My Scores page that there are two tabs at the top of the page above the bar graphs. Click on the second (Final Challenge) tab.
If the Final Challenge (FC) displays a symbol like this ? it indicates that you have already attempted it once. You are allowed to take the Final Challenge only one time. To retake the FC, contact your manager and request that the test be reset so you can retake it.
QBInternational has developed a platform that allows us to create the QGames in house. We require that the client provide us with the questions, especially when they are highly technical. We then create the games in different game frames. This platform is available for licensing by clients who want to create their own games and update them on a regular basis.
