Eyes That Do Not See VII

Post by Mike Bentley » Fri Nov 13, 2015 7:44 pm

I'm writing another one of these visual tournaments. There will be 100 or so questions. It will certainly be ready by the Stanford Housewrite tournament on February 27th and can probably be done earlier if needed. There is no mirror fee for this tournament. Difficulty will be in line with previous years.

If you're interested in mirroring, shoot me an e-mail at bentley.michael.j@gmail.com.

And previous versions of the set are at the bottom of http://trash.doc-ent.com.

I'm pretty close to finished with this tournament. It should be ready for mirrors starting 2/15.

Ok, tournament is now finished. If you're interested in mirroring it, send me an e-mail at bentley.michael.j@gmail.com. You'll want to get the questions downloaded before the tournament, as the files are quite large (close to 1 GB total uncompressed).

Also, can a mod create a discussion forum for this tournament?

I think all mirrors are now done. Questions can be found here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=1 ... der%2cpptx

I'll get them uploaded to other places soon.

I don't think I ever thanked you, Mike, for sharing the set with us in Orlando the night before our MUT mirror. We had two rooms (one a little more serious/hardcore than the other), and we had a swell time. We appreciate the hard work that is obviously put into making this kind of set, and there were a lot of creative and interesting question and visual clue ideas. So thanks!
