Schurniverse: It's a Schur Thing (Early Summer 2020)

Post by InvadErGII » Fri Sep 20, 2019 10:06 am

Play Quiz Bowl is excited to announce Schurniverse, a set dedicated to the various projects of TV producer extraordinaire Michael Schur. The set will be written by Danny Vopava (with a few contributions from myself), and will have 6 packets of 20 tossups with the following distribution:

5/0 The Office
4/0 Parks and Recreation
4/0 Brooklyn Nine-Nine
4/0 The Good Place
1/0 Saturday Night Live (Schur's work, specifically)
2/0 Lesser TV Projects

We're planning on having this ready for mirrors in time for the 2020 high school nationals season - stay tuned for info on exactly where and when you can play this.

This is perhaps the greatest set idea ever. Also, even more incentive for me to finish The Office and Parks and Rec before they leave Netflix.

Yeah, I don't think I can play this without a dedicated Murray Chass section of the distribution.
