SNICK: Global Announcement (All 90s, Late Summer 2018)

Postby InvadErGII » Wed Nov 29, 2017 1:34 pm

Play Quiz Bowl is pleased to announce Some Nineties Inquiries for Cool Kids, a tossups-only trash tournament whose content will remain entirely within the 1990s. I will be writing this, and it's gonna be hard. It will also be totally radical and ready in time for the second summer open or thereabouts. This will also have a somewhat unique distribution:

5/0 Music
5/0 Movies
5/0 TV
2/0 Video Games
1/0 Trash Lit
2/0 90s trends that don't fit into the above/other miscellany

50 percent of this event's proceeds will directly benefit the Bounceback Foundation.

I don't know about phat, but I almost guarantee Erik writes something fetch (I know that's a reference circa 2004, but I haven't gotten to use it in a while).

I also expect nothing less than a 1/0 or 0/1 "wazzup" distro.

Yes and yes.

Note that the current plan is for this to be tossups-only, but I may end up adding bonuses if there are enough ideas I like.

Is there any expectation for how many packets this will be? And whether the plan is currently still to only have tossups?

Probably all tossups, but I'm aiming for a larger number of packets to compensate for the lack of bonuses. Should be at least 10 rounds.
