Features
  • Read and scorekeep in the same browser tab
  • Track buzz point data
  • Import rosters and export results to a Lifsheets scoresheet.
  • Load packets from Word documents, or Word documents parsed by YAPP
  • Persists the current game, so closing the tab doesn’t lose your data
  • Track various events that can happen like substitutions, protests, and thrown out questions.
You can try a demo of it here. Instructions for using the application are here You can use the attached packet to start with.

MODAQ is still in an alpha phase and is under development. It still requires polishing and features like supporting powers. The application is open source, and contributions are welcomed and encouraged. You can see the source on GitHub.

If anyone has a scoresheet format that also tracks buzz points, let me know and we can look into adding it as an export option.
