The guidelines state that 'no scrambles are allowed' in the Wordplay for Kids category within For Children. Does this apply only to full quizzes dedicated to scrambles? Would a mixed-Wordplay quiz allow one or two questions out of ten to be scrambles?

Follow-up question: does a Wordplay for Kids quiz have to be made to be really easy, or can it be challenging when themed around a kids' topic? Is a quiz consisting of entirely FITB acceptable in this category?

Scrambles as questions are no longer accepted in For Children quizzes, even just one or two in a quiz.

All-FITB question quizzes are allowed in FC in the Wordplay subcategories, but the answers must be one word only and easy to spell.

A few harder questions in a children's quiz are okay, but for the most past, the questions should be able to be solved by kids in the category's target age range of 6-12.

Okay, thanks!

I don't think any of the questions I have in mind are hard, but they'd be *too* easy, I think, if I made them multiple choice.
