Re: NSC 2016 Set Discussion

Overall I believe this was a very good set. It felt a little easier than last year to me, but that could be just me getting older. I really only had one qualm, and that was the Napoleon III tossup. In the first clue he is referred to as a "king". I'm pretty sure he was never king of France, only pre...

Re: Discuss 2016 NHBB Nationals Here

We played against Naperville North 3 times. I'm curious, how many times have two teams played each other more than once at a single national tournament?

Re: Discuss 2016 NHBB Nationals Here

We're going to do a 32 team double elimination next year in the Varsity with teams ranked 17-32 (who by definition, will have at least one loss in the afternoon rounds) going into Saturday evening in a single elimination position. Does this mean that during the afternoon on Saturday next year there...

Re: How to study packets?

My goal is to become a lower national level player by March and to make Naqt nats. I am specializing in history so I'm studying HSAPQ NHBB nationals 2014. There are like five clues for each question so I'm like: should I look up the clue and lose time or should I skip the clue and risk missing it i...

Re: 2014-15 NAQT IS sets: question-specific discussion

I forget which IS set this was in, but what was the conversion rate for the Scottsboro Boys tossup? In 2013 three members of this group, including Andy Wright and Haywood Patterson, were posthumously pardoned. The last surviving member, Clarence Norris, died in 1989, 13 years after being pardoned b...

Re: 2015 NAQT HSNCT: Congratulations Arcadia!

We missed playoffs due to losing 5 games in prelims. What I say next is not meant to complain about the system just because it worked against us. We were the only 3-1 team that had to play a 4-0 team. We also had the unfortunate luck of drawing a 6-2 team when we were 5-3. We played 4 teams that en...

Re: Specific Question Discussion

Could I see the question on the Guadalcanal Campaign from the Bee prelims?
