Potential Post-CO Sunday Stuff

Post by Cheynem » Fri Aug 02, 2019 11:02 pm

For those who didn't see the buried posts in the main thread:

While CANONEXPANSION is happening on Sunday night after the CO side events, for those folks still around, I have the sets BUMPY II and Look at This Photograph if folks are interested (minor fee to play). I'd like to play both of the sets, but I'm sure we can work something out. Chris Borglum also has some film packets Sean Platzer wrote, which I'd love to hear, although I don't know when Chris has to take off (I have no life, so I am staying until Monday). If you're interested, just hang around after Scattergories and talk to me and/or Chris.

Yeah, I'm happy to read the 100 film tossups Sunday as I'm also staying till Monday. Mike can figure out scheding but we can just shoot it out and it should only take an hour or so.

Oh, and I guess I'll charge like $2 to defray after-tournament beer expenses.

The central issue with the visual things is finding some way to project them, of course.

When/where are these events likely to happen? I am not at CO, but I do live in Evanston, and am always interested in hearing film content.

This happened. We played three events: BUMPY II, Look at This Photograph, and Matt Weiner's audio tournament. (I'm sorry. I don't know its name.) Given the informality of the occasion, I didn't keep statlines but I kept a running score, and it was as follows (below the line indicates that the players did not stay for the whole tournament):

BUMPY II
Chris Ray = 170
Matt Lafer = 145
Chris Borglum = 90
Sam Bailey = 90
Kyle Asta = 80
John Lawrence = 80
Halle Friedman = 55
Mike Cheyne = 55
Andrew Hart = 50
Matt Weiner = 35
Alex Damisch = 30
Rob Carson = 25
Chinmay Kansara = 25
Tamara Vardomskaya = 20
Tejas Raje = 20
Kenji Shimizu = 5
Zach Foster = 0

Look at This Photograph
Halle Friedman: 225
Matt Lafer: 215
Chris Ray: 205
Tejas Raje: 195
Kenji Shimizu: 110
Zach Foster: 125
John Lawrence: 105
Mike Sorice: 80
Chinmay Kansara: 65
Matt Weiner: 55
Sam Bailey: 55

Joey Goldman: 40

Audio Tournament:
John Lawrence: 415
Mike Sorice: 210

Kevin Wang: 35
