BUMPY iii - A Visual Film Tournament

Post by funkdaddio »

I am very pleased to make an announcement for the third installment of BUMPY, BUMPY iii . 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 2020. Email me here or at [email protected] for more info or to set up a mirror.
BUMPY i and ii is currently free to play and found in the Trash Quizbowl Packet Archive.

This was sick. Clues were excellent and very good looking. Everyone should play this.

I had a lot of fun playing it. I recommend any movie-watcher to play it.

I staffed a mirror of this today and wanted to add a strong endorsement. This was an excellent tournament. The answerlines were chosen well -- a few surprises and always interesting. The clues were well ordered to reward deeper engagement. I noticed players getting questions for different, interesting reasons -- one because he had read a review of the film that analyzed a scene shown in an early clue, another who knew only the premise of a film but figured out the answer by the giveaway because of the expressive clues. There are a few stylistic novelties that were a lot of fun.

One aspect worth highlighting is the stunning visual quality of this tournament. One experienced player in my room commented that "the tournament itself is a work of art", which I think is accurate -- the screencaps were visually pleasing, insightfully chosen, high-resolution, and so on. Staffing was particularly enjoyable because of this.

In my opinion this is the best iteration of BUMPY yet, and I would encourage others to play it -- based on today's reception I think it will be widely enjoyed.

Held a private reading of the set, with the following stats:

Code: Select all

Juliet M:     15/38/ 0 (605)
Dylan M:       8/ 4/17 + 0/1/0 on tiebreaker (85)
Jason T:       6/ 3/ 5 (85)
Bernadette S:  4/ 1/ 3 (55)
Tejas R:       3/ 1/ 0 (55)
Rob C:         0/ 6/ 1 (55)
Chris M:       2/ 3/ 2 (50)
Matt B:        1/ 4/ 7 (20) - only played 3 rounds
Auroni G:      1/ 0/ 2 (5)
Very quality set - several of us felt like Julien should have charged us more money, because these are good questions and a lot of work clearly went into them. As is, it's a steal; get it while you can!

Wait, please don't post it yet! Mike Cheyne and I were going to organize an informal online mirror.

I'd still like to play, yeah. The holidays and finishing my own set really took out a lot of my time in December.

I would also be interested in playing an informal mirror before the packets are posted! Please let me know if there is one set up.
