If you hadn't noticed from the web page before the tournament, you probably realized now that this tournament had math questions, but no computation questions. How did people like this change? It's one I hope will be mimicked in other tournaments.

There is one thing I would like to apologize for: the "regular" (as in regular polygon) bonus answer in Round 2, 3 or 4 (I don't remember):

This question had two "oops"es. As it was in the tournament, it was "Two polygons of this type with the same number of sides are always similar to each other. They are similar, equilateral, and equiangular." It was supposed to say "Two polygons of this type with the same number of sides are always similar to each other. **A polygon of this type** is **simple**, equilateral, and equiangular." As it was, similar or congruent are almost correct answers, but the definition of equilateral/equiangular doesn't quite allow that. I think the question does have a unique answer, barely, but I apologize for the confusion it caused.

EDIT: Sorry to the below poster, I forgot a part of the first sentence.
