'Twas fun, even if we went 1-5 and I answered probably fewer than 15 tossups the entire time. Props to Mike for setting it up, and thanks to everyone who volunteered their rooms.

BTW, anyone who wants an excuse to yell at me, I'm happy to hear criticism of my questions (yeah, even my GUERRILLA questions) in a PM. I, somewhat obviously, worked on the "Brown" packet.

Here are the "stats": http://doc-ent.com/quizbowl/GUERRILLA%2 ... dings.html. Just looking at our own stats as they were written on paper, it looks like a very loose approach was taken to accurately marking who got what tossup (and doing math correctly), so I wouldn't trust these so much. Also, I'm missing two games. I anecdotally heard that Eric's team beat Ike's team, so I entered that game as a forfeit. This meant that my team, Ike's team and Eric's team tied for first. By fiat I am declaring the team with the most negs won, which is our team by a wide margin.

I thought we went 3-3, but then again Matt's team beat us, so maybe we were 2-4. Oh, well.

The other game looks like us against the Matt/Trevor/Evan/Bernadette team. According to my notebook, we lost 130-65 (our team 7/1, their team 15/4; I didn't keep individual stats, but this was one of the no-power rounds).
