The information presented below is a guide to the format of the games played in 1989 in Jeux Sans Frontières and Jeux Sans Frontières: Games Under the Fir Tree and how points were awarded in each event. The election game continues as does the lack of a fil rouge or joker, but the 1989 series permits teams to score double points on the last game to boost their final standings.
