So I just thought, what if a QB league has a head-to-head format with home fields and road trips? How will it work?
Because from my experience, most if not all quizzers play QB on the road, and there are only few leagues that allow for home field advantage against only one team.
In our city-wide quiz, for example, defending champ gets home field advantage for the year, which means all the other participating schools go to the defending champ's school for the contest.
So what if there's a league with home vs road battles?
Has anyone experimented doing this on the intra-school level (i.e., each class has their own classroom for a home field)?
P.S. I also thought of a new buzzer QB game which is played by a team of 3-4 (with 2-6 reserve players), has 3 or 4 10-minute periods, 10-20 seconds to answer a question after it's being read, 3 points awarded if answered within half the time (5-10 seconds), 2 points awarded after 5-10 seconds has passed or the first wrong answer, whichever comes first.
P.P.S. My proposed tourney format is this: Double round robin for all participants in the regular season so all teams get a chance to play each other both on their home fields and on the road, single-elimination tournament playoff.
So for a league with 7 teams, double round robin nets each team 12 games for the regular season, the top 4 qualify for the playoffs and are seeded according to their rank.
Best-of-3 playoff Semifinal: 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3 (higher seeds have HFA for Games 1 and 3)
Best-of-5 playoff Final: 1-4 winner vs 2-3 winner (higher seeds have HFA for Games 1, 2, and 5)
