That is, this is a tournament along the lines of Eyes That Do Not See or TAMIL, in which questions will consist of a series of images. Each tossup will have 8 slides which contain visual clues for a certain place, country, city, sort of building, or what have you. Questions will be powermarked.
There will be somewhere between 3 and 10 packets, depending on when this is held and how many good ideas I have. I already have two packets almost completely written.
The distribution will be as follows, totaling to 16 tossups per round:
2 Other Americas
2 Asia (not Middle East)
2 common links / miscellaneous
1 Australia / Oceania
1 Middle East
To borrow Kenji's classification:
I think this would be a good side event to run at CMST or perhaps some other spring tournament, and I can also bring it to one or both nationals assuming there is interest (or send it if I don't go). If you're interested in using the set, PM or email me. There will also eventually be an online mirror, after all physical sites are done and I figure out how to use Discord screensharing to run it.Wynaut wrote:The “common link” distribution is only for common links that do not neatly fit into any other part of the distribution. For example, the "dolphins" tossup from 2015 USGO, which uses clues from the Caribbean, Brazil, and China, would fit here, but the "Buddha statues" tossup from the same tournament, which uses clues from Japan and southeast Asia, would fit perfectly in the Asia distribution.
