Re: Delta Burke 2009 Discussion

I haven't looked over the set yet, but the one tossup I remember hating was the one on Mt. Fuji, which began by stating how many people climb it every year, and giving the period its climbers are most active, right before dropping that an artist made "36 views" of it. Looking past the fact that "36 ...

The rounds did seem to be a little on the slow side, but I think it was more due to A) long question lengths B) inexperienced teams that got most tossups near the end and C) talking by players (and sometimes mods) in between questions, as opposed to poor moderating. Despite not being the best modera...
