**Rounds: Based on attendance, teams will be bracketed evenly. Ideally, five guaranteed preliminary rounds will be played through a round-robin with each team in one's bracket. This will be designed to maximize the number of guarantee rounds. At the end of the preliminary rounds, teams will be re-bracketed based on Win-Loss record and then by points per game to break any ties. Teams should also break for lunch around this time.
**Games: We will be using NAQT IS114A, according to NAQT rules, untimed.
**Teams: Teams per school is capped at 4, with a maximum of four players per team with an optional fifth player for in-game substitutions. Players may only sub during the half (after the first ten questions) or at the beginning of a new round in order to facilitate stats.
**Playoff Format: The Top 16 teams will most likely be bracketed into two brackets for a Single-Elimination Final. Although, it is also likely that a two bracket round-robin, ending in single elimination final rounds will be used, depending on the number of teams present.
For teams that wish to stay but did not make the finals, we WILL be organizing a Consolation Bracket. This will be a round-robin style bracket however stats will not be recorded for consolation rounds.
**Statistics: Will be compiled in SQBS. Team stats will be projected in Room 101 at the end of each Round. Individual stats will be posted in the hallways in between rounds.
**Update: Teams that finish in the top 15% will qualify for PACE National Scholastics Championship in St. Louis
