Re: DITCH 2020 (A Packet about Hungary)

WOW! DITCH actually had a very good turnout, much better than I would've ever expected. Thank to all who came out, this really meant a lot to me saying it was my first complete set ever. If there was any tips anyone had to either improve my packet, either content-wise or just wording, or to improve ...

May I ask why you have being waiting 15 years for this? Hope to see you at the reading!

Ok guys! Sorry for it kind of being late but I’m seeing some boomers showing interest in this packet so I’m going to read this in the main quiz bowl discord now.

Remember to drink water :))
Doesn't it make more thematic sense for players to have a shot of Unicum before playing?
Real Hungarians drink Palinka or Soproni beer :))

...and real soccer fans Drinkwater as Danny does!

DITCH 2020 (A Packet about Hungary)

Hello all! These past days I have composed a set of 20 tossups all about anything related to Hungary with some editing help from my homies Ananya Tadigadapa, Anish Kodali, and Chris Goodrich. I have named it DITCH (Danny's Incredibly Terrible Content about Hungary) since I am still a beginner in que...

Discord Links/Help

Hello everyone! I have been exploring the quiz bowl subreddit and forum for discords since I have seen a lot about that, especially on reddit. I have only been able to get into a Fine Arts one (I'm not a fine arts player though), but I was wondering if anyone could help me to find the (or a) general...

Re: How to build "stamina"

I'm a freshman currently and I've found it very beneficial to just be constantly thinking between matches, before and after matches and at lunches. I usually talk to my teammates about our performances and comments about it. This is interesting to me since my intuition would tell me that I should b...

Re: Getting "Real" Literature Knowledge

You seem to be in the same scenario as me. Honestly, memorizing clues and knowing as much as you can about books will not guarantee that you power the question, sometimes even if you've read the book. Truth be told is recognizing first-line clues isn't fully you're fault, you just aren't thinking ab...

Good Databases/Software?

Howdy guys! So I'm a freshman at the moment and as a quiz bowl player, I'm trying to just get better and familiarize myself with high school topics. I'm focusing on mostly A sets, but I'm also trying some regular sets. Personally, I do prefer databases and online sites to study. My main two sources ...

Re: Why don't we have 1/1 math?

I believe that math in the 20th-century quiz bowl was I bit too much. My quiz bowl coach was super good at math and he was OP because of it so I'm happy it's less now. But, I am like him in the sense that I power almost all computational math questions, but they never show up. I don't want it to sho...
