The main event and side events went swimmingly, and this was extremely fun and well-run even with so many side events. Thank you for organizing this Raynor!

As others have said, this tournament ran pretty well and it was great to hear some of the side events that have been written for this year. If this becomes a recurring thing and I'm around the Northeast in the future, I'd definitely come again!

Echoing the praise for Raynor, who did a wonderful job running everything this weekend. I would like to play another summer event in Boston.

For RAPTURE, we played five rounds - one initial game in which buzzes in both game rooms were worth the same number of points, and four subsequent games in which buzzes in top game room were worth triple of those in the bottom room. The lowest two scorers in the top room moved down each game and the top two scorers in the bottom room moved up. The final stats were as follows:

Player: (15/10/-5) count + (45/30/-15) count = Total Score
Mandaean Meme Lord Weijia Cheng: (4/7/2) + (15/17/6) = 1215 points
Will Alston: (1/3/1) + (8/12/6) = 670 points
Jon Suh: (2/6/2) + (6/8/3) = 545 points
Saul Hankin: (5/8/0) + (1/2/1) = 245 points
James Lasker: (2/14/5) + (2/0/1) = 220 points
Jeremy Tsai: (4/13/4) + (0/2/1) = 215 points
Ben Zhang: (3/13/4) + (1/2/4) = 200 points
Ophir: (1/12/3) + (1/1/0) = 195 points
Conor Thompson: (1/9/3) + (1/0/0) = 135 points
Rudra Ranganathan: (1/6/3) + (0/0/0) = 60 points

The main event stats are here, for those curious, and I've uploaded stats for Words and Objects and WORLDSTAR - I have noticed a couple of minor errors in the latter and may fix them at a later date.

EDIT: accidentally uploaded WORLDSTAR stats twice, this is fixed now. thx wang for pointing this out <3

We played FILM and Human Use of Human Beings as shootouts.

For FILM, Raynor read all 10 packets at least once over the course of the weekend, with people coming in and out as available. There were superpowers for 20 and powers for 15. Isaac Kirk-Davidoff came out on top; standings were as follows (20/15/10/-5 = total points):
Isaac: 10/24/6/11 = 565 points
Paul: 9/17/14/13 = 510 points
Chip: 5/20/15/17 = 465 points
Saul: 2/10/8/2 = 260 points
JJ: 2/4/7/1 = 165 points
Roger: 2/7/7/11 = 160 points
Stephen (heard 8 packets): 1/3/7/2 = 125 points
Tommy (heard 6 packets): 0/5/4/2 = 105 points
Rudra: 1/1/2/1 = 50 points

We read six packets of Human Use of Human Beings before dispersing on Sunday. After some back and forth between James Lasker, Eric Chen, and me, I pulled ahead in the last few rounds. Full standings:
Stephen: 7/22/9 = 280 points
Eric C: 5/12/3 = 180 points
James: 4/15/13 = 145 points
Raynor: 2/16/23 = 75 points
Ophir: 3/12/19 = 70 points
Olivia (heard 4 packets): 0/6/1 = 55 points
Eric L: 1/3/0 = 45 points
Josh (heard 2 packets): 1/1/0 = 25 points
Will (heard 2 packets): 0/2/5 = -5 points

Considering Imaginary Landscape may not be clear, posting these stats is probably not the wisest decision.
I get why you withdrew the spreadsheet that included info about answer lines, but I don't see why the scores for IL can't be posted, along with the other side event scores.

Sorry, I've been meaning to re-upload the stripped scores, without answerline data. I'll get to that tonight.

EDIT: They're now uploaded, in the IL scoresheets folder. I apologize for the delay.

I don't either. I asked for the results to be posted in this thread as soon as the actual stats sheet was withdrawn. In any case, here they are:

Michael: (52/10) = 470
Peter: (39/16) = 310
Eric: (19/1) = 185
Paul: (21/7) = 175
Jeremy: (9/9) = 45
Alex: (6/3) = 45
Wonyoung: (4/4) = 20
James: (2/1) = 15
