Re: NY/NJ/CT/PA/DE Discussion '19-20

So, post-first-IS set, any new opinions on the region?

Re: Enlighten me on the North Jersey circuit

Essex County Steering Committee has also been running a middle school/elementary school tournament for years now, though it's pretty small (probably 10 teams max/division) compared to a lot of the other events in the area.

Re: NY/NJ/CT/PA/DE Discussion '19-20

10. Livingston Ackerman was a good generalist, so it’s hard to tell how much he shadowed Carolyn and Rosa, who are both very good players. They’re definitely better at NAQT than housewrites, and I can see them winning games against teams better than them. Here are some other teams that I didn’t ran...

I’m going to say millburn will top the region this year, with Hunter a close second. I’ll come up with more complete predictions later.

Bar in Nighthawks should probably have been accepted upon protest, right?
I don't think I lodged a protest, but they were looking for restaurant of diner. I don't think the protest would have mattered anyway.

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

I would like to know why NAQT doesn't but "description acceptable" labels in front of descriptive questions. When these questions come up it's often confusing to have to figure out if the thing it's looking for has a name. The best example of this phenomenon was the question on the restaurant in Ni...

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

Could I see the tossups on calcite and the one that started with a character being beaten to death for saying 2+2=4? I was negged on the first one in power (specifically at stalactite, if I remember correctly) with Calcium Carbonate and protested, but it ended up being moot. The second one my teamma...

Re: NY/NJ/CT/PA/DE Discussion '18-19

Alright, here are my long-awaited HSNCT predictions. Two disclaimers about this before I proceed: Clarke – Groger Rank 149 Clarke has done really well for a first-year team, being competitive in many tournaments and beating a bunch of teams ranked higher than them (including Island Trees, Darien an...

7. Livingston
Probably among the most inconsistent teams to exist in the NYC metro area.
can't disagree :(
