Prison Bowl XI Mirror Requests

Postby notchole » Wed Jan 17, 2018 12:38 pm

Hunter College High School is proud to announce the eleventh iteration of our annual housewrite, Prison Bowl. Prison Bowl XI will be available for mirrors beginning on March 24th, 2017. It will then be available for play until Sunday, June 10, 2017 (after which it will be viewable to all on the quizbowlpackets.com archive). If you are interested in mirroring our set (or have any questions), please contact me at chloe.e.w.levine@gmail.com.

Set details

Like always, the set will be written and edited by the Hunter College High School quiz bowl team with the help of a few freelancers. A full staff list can be found below. The set will consist of thirteen 21/21 packets (20 pyramidal tossups, 20 three-part bonuses, and an extra tossup and bonus for tiebreakers). All packets will be written at uniform, slightly greater than regular high school difficulty, with power marks. Each tossup will be 5-6 lines long and each bonus part no more than 2 lines long in 10 point Times New Roman font.

Aside from your standard quiz bowl answer lines, the set will also feature some original common-link questions, descriptive answer-lines, and cross-categorical/interdisciplinary questions. We hope that these non-conventional questions will keep grizzled players who have played many other sets interested. However, the standard difficulty-nature of the set should also allow less experienced players to get and learn stuff.

The set will not feature computational math.
