В общем, на какие-то вопросы можно ответить сразу, какие-то - напрочь вне моего тезауруса, на какие-то - не хватило 12 секунд, чтобы понять о чём идёт речь. А в целом - пакет показался непростым. До 35 ответов я бы точно никогда не дотянул. Хорошо, что в "Своей игре" всё на русском, включая отборы. :)
