Re: Should quizbowl reform the three-part bonus?

Our high school league (IHSA) used bouncebacks and I fully believe them to be superior. Besides the continuous engagement argument already mentioned, I think they also actually help less experienced players have more fun playing. At least from my experience with my high school team, one of the large...

Re: Tournament Database Search by Team

hsquizbowl tournament links seem to be broken (specifically, I think there's a missing slash between hsquizbowl.org and db in the links directed; otherwise they work, so it's only a minor inconvenience) Thanks for the great tool!

Re: 2019 Masonic/Reinstein Set Discussion

I obviously didn't get to play State, but what was the intended difficulty? Styron, Primo Levi, Innisfree, The Lamb, Comedy of Errors all seem reasonable stretches at HS Nationals difficulty, but are all probably stretching too far for regs+. Rebecca, Lovelace, and Mamet seem fine to me. I don't thi...

Re: 2019 Masonic/Reinstein Set Discussion

For what it's worth, if I recall correctly, we 10ed the Saarinen bonus and picked up both dance and Matisse on the bounceback.
