Re: Kentucky 2019-20

Here are my thoughts for the 2019-2020 Kentucky Circuit. As a note KAAC (Kentucky Association for Academic Competition) is a Quizbowl-esque organization that runs district, region, and state competitions as well as JV challenge (Freshman and Sophomore). Unlike national formats it is also comprised o...

Re: Can anyone help review my questions?

I am trying to apply to be an NAQT writer so I was hoping someone could help he review some questions I wrote. I wrote these a while ago so I already notice a few problems but I would love to get some feedback from an impartial reader. The tossups are around 400 characters to the difficulty should ...

Re: Making things stick.

For lit history, current events, and RMP reading rereading, and creating flashcards on programs such as Quizlet as mentioned before is probably the best way.

It's 737 pages of in-depth descriptions of individual characters, myths, and families, including deviant versions of all the af...

Re: The State of Good Quizbowl, State-by-State, 2017 Edition

Kentucky : C+ (no change) Quick Recall and the whole Governor's Cup are state institutions; they are not going to go away and do help foster academic teams at most high schools in KY, even in some of the most rural areas.

Re: Books "for Quizbowl"

Can someone recommend me books on Hinduism/other world religions (Voodoo, Rastafari, Buddhism, Bahai, Jainism, Shinto, Sikhism, etc)? Hinduism: I don't know what your level of experience is but here are two introductory texts. Both secondary sources. https://www.amazon.com/Hinduism-Beliefs-Practice...

Welcome to the boards!

You can see a list and a debate about whether or not such a list is a good idea in this thread.

If somebody is interested in learning a lot over a period of time, this is a great read.
Thank you.

I was wondering what science topics the forum felt came up the most (would net the most points at a tourney). I am trying to help our new science player.

Thank you in advance.
