We will have the list available in the summer (or as soon as the official list is available).
We put all the OBOB titles together on a special shelf. Place holds on all the titles you need. We also offer two Kindles for 3rd-5th division and two Kindles that combine the titles from 6-8 and 9-12 divisions.
Not all the titles are available for purchase.

In 2021, we will offer OBOB Test Your Knowledge virtual sessions only.

Note: In 2021 we will not offer Mock Battles. We will offer virtual TYK sessions only.

We offer two types of OBOB practice sessions:
1.Mock Battles for 3rd and 4th graders. Registration is required. Individuals on the same team should coordinate their registration.
2.OBOB TYK (Test Your Knowledge) for 3rd -5th graders who want to test their knowledge by answering questions. This session does not look like a battle. No registration necessary.

Note: In 2021, we will not offer Mock Battles.

Due to the limited space, only registered participants can be accommodated in the room.

Every year we offer questions for 3-5 division. Some years we are able to offer questions for 6-8 division.
We publish our questions on the website as soon as we are done with the practice sessions.
We are able to offer practice sessions ONLY to participants of the 3-5 division.
