BUMPY ii - a visual movie tournament

Post by funkdaddio » Fri Jun 08, 2018 1:20 pm

I am very pleased to make an announcement for a sequel to BUMPY, BUMPY ii. The set will consist of 100 "Name the movie" questions, each of which have 10 image clues. There are powers marked with a blue border and no penalty on the giveaway which has a green border.
The movies spread across all genres but 95% of them would be classified as trash. There's a 15/85 split between pre-1990 and post 1990.

Mirrors will be available starting the first weekend of August 2018. Email me for more info or to set up a mirror.
BUMPY the first is currently free to play and found in the Trash Quizbowl Packet Archive

I hope you didn't listen to the purblind doomsters and made the giveaways too easy.

The previous iteration was deliciously difficult, but not obscenely so, and the “themed” tossups are incredibly fun. Looking forward to this.

A lot of the negative feedback i received from BUMPY was "as a casual movie watcher, i saw no significant difference between the last 2-3 slides". As much as i would like to reply "GET GOOD" i decided to make things a bit more accessible by making the giveaways easier.

We played this after the Princeton FST. Harrison Whitaker won with an extremely dominant lead. The set was like last year's, extremely challenging but very rewarding when you get it. Great set of film selection, thanks for writing, and thanks to everyone that played!

Harrison Whitaker - 9/47/8 - 565
David Song - 1/10/3 - 100
JJ Tsai - 2/6/7 - 55
Ameya Phadnis - 1/4/2 - 45
Tyler Barna - 1/6/10 - 25
Om Prabhu - 0/2/1 - 15
Sunjay Jayaram - 0/1/0 - 10
