Bad things about The Judge:

1. The buzzing motion is completely unnatural.

2. Every buzzer is attached to one another, so if one person accidentally knocks their buzzer or even the extra fifth buzzer on the ground, everything else comes down with it.

Actually, if you can infer anything from the titles of their worksheets, that will probably give you a good idea of their question quality. A few of my favorites were "Chemical Symbol Words," "Famous Georges," "Electoral Votes," "Phrases that use "Eye"," "Traffic Safety," and "Colors." It's almost r...

With over 9000 teams participating, between 3000 and 4000 teams should make it to Sunday. It will be interesting to see how NAQT breaks down this playoff conundrum.

Speaking as a player from outside that area, I've found that Maggie Walker, despite not having Maggie Walker teams, runs a very good tournament and has excellent questions. Also, they are close to Extreme Pizza, the best and most hilarious place to eat lunch on a quiz bowl trip.

Science Bowl is terrible. I had forgotten how not fun the format and the questions are.

The best part of the tournament was the rules meeting before the tournament when the tournament director asked of the audience, "Why doesn't anyone want to come to our tournament?"
