Venetian V (Online, starting June 29, Individuals)

Post by oriley »

“Venetian might well have the best price-to-writing quality ratio of all the quiz competitions out there." — Joel Miles

“I like that I can try to double every bonus with no real life repercussions. And the strategy’s fun.” — Sinecio Morales

“See, Venetian is a great philosophical well of category theory.” — Evan Ting

“But I’m also boring and want to double my rounds on. . . South African food in peace.” — Caspar Chatham

Good evening, and for the fifth time, welcome back to the Venetian Quiz League.

This is the announcement post for Venetian V, a bonus-only format open for individuals of all ages. All information about the tournament can be found on the website here.

The question set for Venetian V was written by Sinecio Morales, Shiva Tegulla, Abigail AuYeung, Angela Sun, Aum Mundhe, Sophia Guo, Vikram Narasimhan, Kevin Peng, Sophia Wu, Eric Mukherjee, Rohan Ganeshan, and myself, Owen Riley.

In the Americas, there will be division splits between people over 18 and people at/under 18. There will also be “novice” (high school regular difficulty) and “championship” (EFT difficulty prelims, college regular/2 dot difficulty playoffs) divisions at each age group, for a total of four divisions (in the Americas, the high school graduating class of 2024 is considered U18). There will also be European and Asia-Pacific divisions.

All information can be found at the above link. Some further notes and clarifications:
  • The tournament runs for six weeks, starting the week of June 29. Players play one game between Saturday and Tuesday each week at a time that works for their schedules.
  • Many of the questions in each version of the set are adapted from the other. Players will not be able to spectate any games in other divisions until their weekly game has been played.
  • Registration is through the website linked above. Registrations are called “tickets” because the template won’t let me edit the word “ticket,” so we roll with it.
  • I am running several practice games on packets from the most recent tournament. If that would interest you, let me know and I’ll see what I can put together.
I can be reached by email at “oriley1201 AT icloud DOT com,” or through my website at “owner AT uqcquizbowl DOT org.” Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions.

Enjoy the tournament!
