I should have a formal update out soon. For now, informally, the expected order is:
- Cambridge Open (morning)
- MUSES (afternoon + evening)
- Super Acronym (morning)
- The Unanswered Question (afternoon)
- Other events (META, Imaginary Landscape, Soundbyte 64)
Looking at this schedule and the response it got, and then comparing it to the new proposed schedule, perhaps something like this could work:
CamO, morning/early afternoon
assorted events and shootouts, late evening
SACRONYM, morning/early afternoon
UAQ, late afternoon/early evening
This seems like it would allow you to run Super ACRONYM without restricting its length—it’s a full tournament, but it isn’t a literally takes up the entire day tournament, at least in my memory of playing the last iteration. And it seems more reasonable to play low-key shootouts late at night than to attempt to run an official event, especially a challenging one like UAQ that I fear could turn into a punishing slog if everyone is already super tired while playing. On the other hand, I would be very interested to hear if anyone planning on playing UAQ is not going to be staying for Sunday afternoon, because if the field would be significantly weaker in that time slot keeping it on Saturday would be best. Anyway, this is just my two cents.
Edit: Mike posted while I was drafting this and I pretty much just agree with what he said.
