The information presented below is a guide to the format of the games played in 1992 in Jeux Sans Frontières and how points were awarded in each event. The scoring system for the semi-final of the Winter series must rank among the most unnecessarily convoluted and confusing ever, with two teams from each country playing against each other for a place in the Final, and country scores being awarded too for the 'on the night' result. Barmy!
