Aakash Patel won both packets, the first in somewhat strong fashion and the second in absolutely dominant fashion.

I will read my team's essentially unused CO packet for fun on the quizbowl Discord server. Join the #packet text channel and the "Packet reading" audio channel at 9:15 EDT tonight (Thursday, July 27).

I will also do this for our unused packet, either late tomorrow night at 10 EDTish or Sunday afternoon (assume former if no further updates).

Did Ophir's packet not get read? (I heard mention of something like that due to another packet reading)

I've posted this elsewhere as well, but I'm planning on reading the remainder of the edited CO packets over Discord in the near future. Please respond to this poll to let me know when would be the best time.

This happened - Eric and Jordan thoroughly beat up the packets, in that order; results are here:

Thank you everyone who played! Jakob Myers won with 90, and everyone working together put up a PPB of 6.5.

Hey all,

This is just a quick announcement for what I'm tentatively calling "Songs for David Seal: A Mountain Goats Packet". Accepting applications for better names, though.

Yep, it's a set of likely 15-40 tossups about the best of all possible bands, The Mountain Goats. It's gonna probably end up being mostly common links on themes and ideas found across the band's voluminous discography (deep cuts and demos especially included), but questions on specific songs/albums/etc will be there as well. On a difficulty scale of 1 to "What on God's Green Earth is wrong with you!", it's hard to tell, but I imagine it'll appear closer to the latter if you're not the type to spend time trying to justify spending $300+ on a copy of Come, Come to the Sunset Tree (which ended up being a moot point; I lost the eBay auction). If you're a casual fan, you'll probably won't be powering a ton, but I imagine you'll be able to at least answer a number of questions. I know there's a number of tMG fans around here, so hopefully this has something of an audience.

I'll probably be done sometime December-ish, so this might make an appearance at Festivus; I doubt it'll be done much before then. I'll read it on IRC or Discord or whatever. Is this something people would be interested in hearing?

Hey, since my last planned attempt to read PACENSC (http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... 19&t=19877) failed miserably, I plan on reading the set on Thursday, 10/19, at 5pm EST on the quizbowl Discord. If you want to hear lots and lots of Pokémon tossups be sure to stop by!

Instead of studying for finals, I'm currently working on a BoJack Horseman packet that should be finished by New Year's. I would read it at Festivus, but it has bonuses.

I would enjoy playing this. I've entertained the idea of writing something like this before, but never followed through.
