Eyes That Do Not See IX - Fall 2017

Postby Mike Bentley » Sun Jul 09, 2017 12:36 pm

This is an announcement for Eyes That Do Not See IX, another iteration in my line of visual questions on the visual fine arts. There will be 100 tossups and a couple of extras. I've pretty much written it all at this point, I just need to compile it into packets. It should be available as early as August, but given the packed nature of summer tournaments I think it would be best attached to an event such as WAO II. I will most likely also run a Skype mirror of it. The tournament is free to mirror and play. If you're interested in mirroring it, e-mail me at bentley.michael.j@gmail.com.

By the way, the tournament should be a bit easier than last year's, although there will still be a good selection of answers on the harder side of the canon.

The tournament is now complete. I'm going to make a separate post for a Skype playtest.

And it's now been edited to incorporate feedback from the Skype mirror. Let me know if you're interested in mirroring this. I'll probably keep the set non-posted through the end of the year.

Can a moderator create a private discussion forum for this tournament when they get a chance? Thanks!

FYI I kicked everyone out of the 2017 Eyes That Do Not See user group (which was for Eyes VIII). I've started an Eyes IX thread in there. Re-apply for membership if you want to discuss the set.
