List of Essential Resources (alpha)

Postby Dr. Loki Skylizard, Thoracic Surgeon » Wed Apr 22, 2009 1:08 pm

This is very much a Work in Progress.

1. Major Question Providers & National Organizations

High School

HSAPQ - High school question provider

NAQT - High school question provider, hosts High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT)

PACE - Hosts National Scholastics Championship (NSC)

College

ACF - Hosts four major events a year, including ACF Nationals

NAQT - Question provider, hosts Intercollegiate Championship Tournament (ICT)

2. Question Archives

High School

Quiz Bowl Packets - Excellent archive

College

Collegiate Quiz Bowl Packets

ACF Question ARchive

ACFdb - a search engine for the ACF Question Archive

Stanford Packet Archive - mostly out of date, but still valuable

X. Basic Glossary of Quiz Bowl Terminology

Hey everyone.

This is old and badly needs updated, not to mention completion. Please post your favorite resources in this thread and I will add them in the first post as soon as I can.

Please add NHBB's high school sites to this - www.historybowl.com and www.hs.historybee.com. If you could add www.geographyolympiad.com to this as well, even better.

Quinterest.org would probably be the most important new development. (QuizbowlDB is pretty lackluster in comparison.)

Even if there are concerns about the maturity of lobby and the benefits of memorizing clues, it is an excellent way to practice against other people or just play a lot of questions.

http://www.pace-nsc.org/quizbowl-101/

There's a glossary there, along with a concise rules doc, tips for writing, etc.

adding "site:quizbowlpackets.com" to a google search query works as a packet search for whatever quinterest or qbdb lacks
