Re: Tracking Second and Third Place in the Buzzer Race

One of the weakness if perhaps, used in a normal QB is that if all 3 players that buzz-in first came from the same team, well it can be kinda of annoying (but usually first,second,third place machine is not conditioned for a ACF or NAQT QB)

But no obligatory) Step 1: Open Mic Word Step 2: Assign each player as square in the keyboard. Ask player to buzz-in by pressing their OWN butto...

Re: My School *Perhaps* host a intramural QB.

I will consider that. As for clarification, we only use the history QB rule, the question will be modified with our topic. Talking about VHSL, i had see it in QBWiki. Is it Pyramidal or Quick Recall Question?

My School *Perhaps* host a intramural QB.

So I suggested to my school (via my English Club) to host intramural QB. My EC teacher was quiet interested. My question is, which format I should use . Remember we are in Indonesia. And Indonesia *NEVER PLAY US-STYLE QB* (Those US-Style that I am talking about is like NAQT and ACF) . I honestly int...

All very good at all or every specialist at each different

I will make this short. Is it better to have a team where each player very good at all or or have a tram where each member is specialist at different subject? I assume "specialist" is a higher degree of knowledgeable than "very good"

Re: International Buzzer

No. My school just searching one. They don't have it. How about buzzersystem.com? Anderson have the buzzer indicator only at the hub. Buzzer system has one on each one. I'm thinking for searching the traditional one.

International Buzzer

Hi, my name is Deo. I came from Indonesia. I'd like to ask, do yo know a buzzer that is good (not often breaking of course) and has good record make an international delivery. Finding a buzzer is quiet difficult here.

(NOTE: and perhaps, sell an adaptor. We use 220 V here)
