Eyes That Do Not See V - 11/23/13

Post by Mike Bentley » Thu Sep 05, 2013 5:11 pm

Hi, I'll be running another instance of Eyes That Do Not See at the Pittsburgh site for Fernando Arrabal Tournament of the Absurd. It will likely be during lunch, although if there are no other events that day we might do it after the finals. The tournament will be free.

The tournament will be available to mirror after this date (and potentially beforehand, but I can't guarantee that). There will be around 100 visual tossups. There are links to the previous 4 versions at the bottom of Wastebin (http://trash.doc-ent.com).

The tournament will be around the same difficulty as previous years--decently hard, but with a couple of pretty easy and pretty hard questions.

This tournament is now finished. If you're running a mirror and I haven't already e-mailed your the questions, please let me know and I'll send them.

I could potentially do an online mirror of this where I share my screen if there's interest.

Here's a link to the set: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=1 ... =folder%2c

I've also started experimenting with whether I could write an easier set for next year and am cautiously optimistic that I can do it.
