Click everything you can - you never know what you might find.

Read the text carefully. A lot of the articles and information are designed to give you clues about what to do and where to go. Watch for the hints!

Everything is deliberate. Error messages and unfinished sites are all part of the game.

Bookmark every site. Just because you found a useful link or piece of information, doesn't mean you're done with a particular website.

Red Dwarf knowledge is useless - Geek Chase can be played by anyone just by paying attention to the game sites. Knowing Kryten's middle name already won't help you!

Every site linked within the game is part of the game. If you see a link to a website (aside from software downloads like Quicktime and Adobe Reader), it's always another Geek site.

You will not have to leave the Geek Chase websites at any time. There's no need to go off to search in Google. All you need to know is contained here.

Red Dwarf - Beat the Geek, along with the free Geek Chase competition flyer, is out now and available from Merchandise.
