Historature Online - June 23rd

Postby Periplus of the Erythraean Sea » Wed May 09, 2018 5:38 pm

This thread will be updated once we confirm a date for the mirror. For now, I've attached a poll asking what date people would like to play a Historature online mirror on.

EDIT: The poll is closed; this tournament will take place on June 23rd. The entry fee will be $15 per player (100% to charity) and I'd like to guarantee at least 8 rounds to each team.

You may find more information about the question set here and indicate your interest on the Online tab of the workbook here.

Since it's not a full day event, I'll say 11AM Eastern / 8AM Pacific. If we're efficient, we can probably get through things by 3PM Eastern / 12PM Pacific, which should be an okay lunch time.

EDIT: See below for changed times.

Because of a conflict, it looks like I won't be able to run this tournament at the planned time. If anyone is willing to take volunteer to direct this, please let me know. Also, we still need readers!

I've resolved the conflict. The tournament will happen as planned. I'll randomize teams (if people don't have them) and send out logistical information tomorrow.

I now have a conflict on Saturday (something out of my control) so I will not be able to moderate on Saturday.

People playing - please join this Discord server. Since it's not a full day event and I don't think anything tournaments are going on to conflict, I'm going to push the start time to 12 PM EST / 9 AM PST - so Eastern Time folks should get some food before we start.

Can I be added to a team for this? I'll be at work but I'll have my laptop +spotty wifi and should only have to tune out for a few questions every now and then.
