Aakash Patel won both packets, the first in somewhat strong fashion and the second in absolutely dominant fashion.

I will read my team's essentially unused CO packet for fun on the quizbowl Discord server. Join the #packet text channel and the "Packet reading" audio channel at 9:15 EDT tonight (Thursday, July 27).

I will also do this for our unused packet, either late tomorrow night at 10 EDTish or Sunday afternoon (assume former if no further updates).

Did Ophir's packet not get read? (I heard mention of something like that due to another packet reading)

I've posted this elsewhere as well, but I'm planning on reading the remainder of the edited CO packets over Discord in the near future. Please respond to this poll to let me know when would be the best time.

This happened - Eric and Jordan thoroughly beat up the packets, in that order; results are here:

Hey all,

This is just a quick announcement for what I'm tentatively calling "Songs for David Seal: A Mountain Goats Packet". Accepting applications for better names, though.

Yep, it's a set of likely 15-40 tossups about the best of all possible bands, The Mountain Goats. It's gonna probably end up being mostly common links on themes and ideas found across the band's voluminous discography (deep cuts and demos especially included), but questions on specific songs/albums/etc will be there as well. On a difficulty scale of 1 to "What on God's Green Earth is wrong with you!", it's hard to tell, but I imagine it'll appear closer to the latter if you're not the type to spend time trying to justify spending $300+ on a copy of Come, Come to the Sunset Tree (which ended up being a moot point; I lost the eBay auction). If you're a casual fan, you'll probably won't be powering a ton, but I imagine you'll be able to at least answer a number of questions. I know there's a number of tMG fans around here, so hopefully this has something of an audience.

I'll probably be done sometime December-ish, so this might make an appearance at Festivus; I doubt it'll be done much before then. I'll read it on IRC or Discord or whatever. Is this something people would be interested in hearing?

Hey, since my last planned attempt to read PACENSC (http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... 19&t=19877) failed miserably, I plan on reading the set on Thursday, 10/19, at 5pm EST on the quizbowl Discord. If you want to hear lots and lots of Pokémon tossups be sure to stop by!

Instead of studying for finals, I'm currently working on a BoJack Horseman packet that should be finished by New Year's. I would read it at Festivus, but it has bonuses.

I would enjoy playing this. I've entertained the idea of writing something like this before, but never followed through.

So it's taken me far longer than I should have to do this, but Alex Wallace's Titanic Trash Packet, my third, and the one that was read at the 2017 Festivus, is finally ready for general reading. I'd be happy to read it on discord should somebody like to hear it.

I've assembled a trash music pack from questions written for events that aren't on the archives and some questions I've written recently that I don't play on using in the future. It's mostly hip-hop.

I'll read it on the Discord on Thursday at 10 EST, and I'll post it on the archive afterwards.

This is still happening; about half of it is done. I've just had less free time for writing than I anticipated.

I intend to read a vanity music packet at ~11:30 PM EST tomorrow on the Discord assuming a decent amount of people show.

EDIT: I was asleep at 1:30 PM

Not sure if this is the best place to announce this, but I've finished the sequel packet to last year's Music Mafia Packet. It is 20/0, powermarked, and I hope has much better consistency and difficulty control than its predecessor. As in the original packet, there is 1/0 opera and 1/0 poetry.
This will be read on Sunday night at EDIT: 10:15 PM on the discord

I'm currently in Europe so ideally before 6-7pm EST (=12-1am CET). But don't prioritize my inclusion over a convenient time for everyone in the US.

Copied from ILQBM, submissions will be accepted until next Tuesday April 17:


It's nearly the end of the school year, so why not commit to a project you probably don't need to do? Time for Mixed Academic Guerilla Event (MAGE).

What? A guerilla event that will probably be read over Skype/Discord/preferred platform in the nearish future.

Why? Many quizbowlers love the mixed academic/mixed impure academic NAQT distribution, or even just the general idea of interdisciplinary and unique tossups. This is your chance to put those common links/esoteric subject ideas/the works to use. Here are some topics I envision being included:
- Fun interdisciplinary common links
- Borderline trash/academic topics like fashion, culinary arts, etc.
- Things that could not be included in a traditional distribution or would stick out as strange in your average set.

Who? I'll be compiling tossups written by anyone. Tossups should be between 6-8 lines 10pt TNR aimed at college regs difficulty. If you're writing about something not terribly canonical, do your best not to overshoot difficulty. Because this is guerilla, I won't be editing beyond reading over submissions for typos.

How? Submit your work to oliviamlamberti@gmail.com with the names of who wrote the submissions.
