VCU Open Playtesting

Post by Cody »

I would like to start conducting science/etc. playtesting for VCU Open on Wednesday, July 17. Playtesting will run from 8p-10:30p (eastern time) and will occur on IRC: channel #vcuo, server irc.slashnet.org. Playtesting order will be roughly: biology, chemistry, physics, other science, music, film. I'll note additional times in this thread as needed.

Any questions can be asked here. As always, be sure you are not playing VCU Open before showing up to playtesting.

as a reminder, this is occurring tonight. I'll be starting promptly at 8p and we'll mostly go through biology & chemistry tossups.

Playtesting has been successfully concluded for tonight. I'll resume playtesting Monday evening (July 22) from 10p-11p. We'll be doing chemistry bonuses.

Friday 07/26: 8p-10:30p - physics bonuses + music tossups/bonuses

There's been a slight change of plans. Physics bonuses (and remaining physics/other science tossups) have been moved to Wednesday 07/31. Music is still Friday, and I'll also playtest the film I've written so far. New schedule:

Friday 07/26: 8p-10:30p - music tossups/bonuses + (most of) film tossups/bonuses - this will probably only last until around 9:30-10p.
Wednesday 07/31: 8p-10:30p - physics bonuses, rest of other science/physics, geography, and anything else remaining.

all times are EST EDT (I hate timezones: UTC -4).

I'll be playtesting the non-Greco Roman myth today at 8 PM EST. It should take an hour at most.

I'm not playing this thing and would be happy to playtest the arts, lit, and SS/random intellectual books.

as a reminder, playtesting will be occurring tonight at 8p EDT tonight (in about four hours) in #vcuo on SlashNET. The agenda is geography, remaining physics and other science (mostly bonuses), remaining film and a single biology bonus. It will probably only take an hour and a half to two hours at most.
