Scattergories 3 (2019)

Post by women, fire and dangerous things » Wed Oct 24, 2018 12:30 pm

I've written close to half of it already, so I may as well announce it officially: the third, and most likely final, iteration of Scattergories will be ready for mirrors in 2019. If you've played or read the other two, you'll know what to expect. The difficulty is Very Hard, the subjects are things I like, and the whimsy content is high. Based on how things are going so far, the amount of France-related content will also be very high.

There will again be 10 packets of 24 tossups each and the tournament will again cost $10 to play, but the distribution will be slightly tweaked. The most notable difference is an increase in "my choice"-type slots, which should hopefully give me more leeway to make questions interesting, plus include more questions that aren't lit or arts. (There are even a couple of trash questions!)

3 fiction
3 poetry
1 drama
3 my choice lit
2 painting/sculpture
2 film
1 other visual arts
1 any visual arts
1 auditory arts
1 any arts
1 philosophy
1 social science
4 my choice

Definitely by CO, possibly by nationals season.

Awesome. The last two versions of this have been delights.
