Potatoville Varsity available for Spring 2015 mirrors

Postby Potatoes » Tue Sep 16, 2014 10:06 pm

I am happy to announce Potatoville Varsity, a regular difficulty tournament written by myself, Tyler Vaughan, Kristin Strey, and a team of writers from Illinois. The set includes thirteen rounds of twenty tossups (5-6 lines Times New Roman 10 point font) and twenty bonus (maximum two lines in Times New Roman 10 point font). Additionally a half packet of tossups and bonuses will be included to be used as replacements and tiebreakers. The set will be powermarked.

Potatoville's distribution per round is:

4/4 Literature (1/1 American, 1/1 British, 1/1 Continental European, 0.5/0.5 World, 0.5/0.5 more of the first three)
4/4 History
4/4 Science (1/1 Biology, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Physics, 1/1 Non-computational Math)
3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Painting, 1/1 Music, 1/1 Other arts)
2/2 Religion and Mythology
1/1 Geography/Current Events
.5/.5 Philosophy
.5/.5 Social Science
1/1 Trash

The fee to mirror this set is $10 per team. It will be available to mirror from January to May. Hosts must agree not to modify the set in any way without permission from me. Prospective mirror hosts, or anyone with questions about the set, may contact me at Aleckrueger182@gmail.com

Our last scheduled mirror has been completed. I will post the set to the database in a few days. This is the last call for mirrors.

Since the season has concluded the set will be uploaded sometime today.

A big thank you to all the mirror hosts and teams that played the set. Despite the fact that the set can't be improved for future use I still urge anybody who played it to send us feedback(using either a private message or the email function). This feedback will help us become better writers and improve our other contributions to whatever sets we may work on in the future.
