LOGIC Set Available for 2019-20 Mirrors (HS Regular)

Post by trbenedict » Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:06 pm

This is a mirror announcement for Lots Of Good Interesting Content (LOGIC), a high school regular-difficulty set available by OCTOBER 1, 2019. Questions will be written by the quiz bowl teams at Miami Valley School (Dayton, OH), Adlai E. Stevenson HS (Lincolnshire, IL), and University Lab School (Urbana, IL). We also have a small team of freelance writers, mostly recently-graduated HS quiz bowl players.

Jacob O’Rourke will be LOGIC’s head editor, and subject editors are Olivia Lamberti (literature), Geoffrey Chen (science/philosophy/social science), Ethan Strombeck (history/visual FA), David Dennis (auditory FA/CE), Conor Thompson (math) and Will Alston (religion/myth).

LOGIC will include 13 powermarked packets of 21 tossups and 20 bonuses, as well as an additional "replacements" packet. The set will be ready for national mirrors on November 1, 2019. The mirror fee will be $10 per team playing the set.

The LOGIC distribution is below.

4/4 Literature (1.5/1.5 Long Fiction, 1/1 Non-Epic Poetry, 0.75/0.75 Drama, and 0.75/0.75 Short Fiction/Other)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 1/1 British/European, 1.5/1.5 World/Commonwealth, 0.5/0.5 Ancient/Other)
4/4 Science (1/1 Biology, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Physics, 0.5/0.5 Other Science, 0.5/0.5 Mathematics)
3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Paintings & Sculpture, 1/1 Classical Music, 0.5 Other Visual [architecture, dance, film, photography, etc.], 0.5/0.5 Other Auditory [opera, jazz, ballet, world, etc.])
2/2 "Beliefs" (1/1 Religion, 1/1 Myth)
1/1 "Thought" (0.5/0.5 Philosophy, 0.5/0.5 Social Science)
1/1 Geography
1/1 Current Events & Pop Culture

The extra tossup in each round will come from any category other than TRASH/Current Events.

Tossups will not exceed 6 lines and bonus parts/lead-ins will not exceed 2 lines in 10-pt. Times New Roman. There will be no computational math in the set.
