Face diagonal is outright wrong. The clue that referred to the diagonal of a cube was "For a cube of side length s, the structure by this name has a length of s root 3." That's definitely the main diagonal; the face diagonal has a length of s root 2.octo wrote:There was a protest in my room in one of rounds 8-10 on the "diagonal" tossup involving "face diagonal" being required/not accepted (don't remember which and I don't have the set in front of me). I believe the specific point of contention was a clue about the square root of 3. I didn't know enough to decide whether that was a legitimate error, but that might be something worth looking into. On a more general note, I thought some of the Judaism bonuses were too difficult. I'll probably remember something else later, there were some other issues I noticed. On the whole, though, I thought it was an excellent novice set.
