Risks and challenges

This game is copyrighted. It has been tested on numerous occasions by different people.

The challenges are as follows : Although the creator of this game has had 40 years in the industry nobody knows better than he how much this industry changes from year to year. The building code changes, building materials change and methods of construction change. Many of the questions and answers in this game are the opinion of the creator based on his lifetime of experience. Some of the questions are based on building codes and those codes change from province to province and state to state. Please take this into consideration when you play the game as the answer may not technically comply to your area.
The fact that questions may change over time is a good thing because it requires upgrades on a continuous basis. This means continuing sales.
