Where are the TV-style questions here?

Post by concernedquizzer » Thu Aug 30, 2018 8:27 pm

Hi all,

I've looked for some time for some TV style question a la https://www.naqt.com/samples/tv.pdf, but I can't seem to find good question materials. Any ideas where I can find them, or does anyone know which packets on the website are styled like this?

The short answer is that they don't exist.

The long answer is that, occasionally on the archives (or more often on the forums) someone will have written a packet or two of "speedcheck" questions that are shorter than typical quizbowl questions, often on a favorite pet topic. These are somewhat rare, and not the norm in mainstream competition (i.e. anything not on a TV show) so there's not really a big demand for people to write more.

It's almost certainly not what you are looking for, but there does exist a speedcheck set on the packet archive. Warning: it's really, really hard and comes with all the eccentricities that 10-year old packets have
