Re: Mid-Atlantic ACF Fall at VCU, 11/8/08

I had a lot of fun in this tournament. I agree that there was one lagging reader but I don't want to harp on that point because overall it was a well run tournament. Kudos to Mr. Weiner, the hosts at VCU, and all of those who staffed. :)

Re: Weekend of Quizbowl Discussion

I had a great time. As a Div II team, I can attest that I had a hard time convincing my team to continue playing. I think that teams who have never actually played that many games in a row experience great fatigue. We ended up getting 4th in Div II on Saturday, which I believe qualifies us for natio...

Thank you! I knew I had seen that list before but I could never find it again. You're awesome.

is there anything going on April 5th? Not that I'm aware of...I don't know It's Ac/Battle of the Brains taping schedules though. Although those might be over by then... They will not be done by then. Does anyone know where the definite schedule can be found? April 12 is our taping, so April 5 is pr...

A few tossups also began entirely too generally; the kabutops question ("related to the trilobite") was "incorrectly" answered by a teammate with "horseshoe crab" before it got to clues exclusive to pokemon. Ah yes, I was in that match. After I got Kabutops, I only got 1 of the bonuses, despite bei...

There was also an issue with the initial playoff bracket assignments, as many of you found out. I take full credit for the huge mistake in allowing teams to switch their assignments with others so they didn't have to play their own school's A team. It caused a great deal of confusion because teams ...

Does anybody know what happened with teams switching seeds in the playoffs? Because that was weird and not supposed to happen. I am still not particularly sure, even though I was part of the whole ordeal. From my understanding: Langley A was supposed to face Maggie Walker C first round of the brack...

That was a horrible final jeopardy question. Still, he put up a respectable performance. Shame he didn't guess Lindbergh, thats what I was thinking. I can see why it seems too easy. Better than Glenn though.

I can recommend computer games, specifically historical ones. This would include: Civilization IV Crusader Kings Europa Universalis II (better for historical events) Europa Universalis III (better gameplay) Victoria Hearts of Iron II Rome Total War : Europa Barbarorum mod Not only can you learn his...
