If you are looking for answers to particular questions regarding the game or game specific rules, visit the official BRI Q&A page.  A password will be needed to access the Q&A until all hubs have had their Kickoff (you will be given the password on the day of Kickoff).  Once all hubs have had their Kickoff, then the Q&A will not require a password.  Changes to the rules are announced there and will not be reflected in the Game Files posted below.  So really, it's not only helpful--it's important to check the Q&A page.  That said, please read the both sets of rules below carefully before posting a new question.
