Quizbowl basics handout for newcomers

Post by lchen »

I made this handout for newcomers to our team, with a flowchart, diagram, and examples to help explain how quizbowl works. It might be of some use....

Lily still rocks at using computers to make quizbowly things. Thanks a lot. I may end up using these.

Edit: I can't spell.

The only thing I would change is that the lines are a bit confusing after the 10 points/0 points/-5 points. Other than that, it looks great!

Yeah this is pretty great. But I have never before heard the term "get" to refer to correct tossup answers.
