Re: SCIENCE SCIENCE SCIENCE !!!

I do agree to some extent and after reading my post, it does seem like I outright rejected connections. To clarify, I think memorizing clues and reading packets is good enough to take you from a low-level player to a medium-level player where you can buzz in on clues about half-way through. However,...

Re: SCIENCE SCIENCE SCIENCE !!!

I don't think any of these options are necessarily the best for approaching "Quiz Bowl" science. Problem with Quiz Bowl science is that it is almost always asking conceptual or definition questions and this only works in biology out of the major sciences. Both Chemistry and Physics are primarily equ...

Re: ProtoBowl

Is there any possibility of implementing a search feature similar to quizbowldb with an option to print out or at the very least export to PDF? That helped me study so much and the new quizbowldb doesn't really help.

They don’t say what kind of question and on the extra questions provided it doesn’t say “directed” or “toss up”. I think we would be out of luck. You could nicely protest and see what come...
