First One Hunna Days (Election 2016) **UPDATE** read OP

Putting this call out ahead of time in case anyone wants to throw some questions into the pile, but I've been working on an Election 2016 (just the goofs please, ma'am) packet, that was supposed to be completed before inauguration, but, alas, was not. I'm reworking it to be a few packets, instead covering trivia, light hearted gaffes, and absurdities of the election and the First 100 Days.

There will be 3 (maybe more?!) packets of 20 TUs each, all concerning people or events that were in the news in the past two years and up until June 9th.

The prospective date would be June 10/11th but any summer night or weekend after (actually, even the 9th itself would be fine if anyone is interested) is fair game. Skype or one of them fancy Google hangout seshes, as the kids say, would be best, but we can cross that bridge later.

UPDATE: Hey everyone! The packet is done! Sixty questions from 2015 to 2017, as recent as just a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, I am unable to host the tournament on the 9th as originally planned. Buuuut, I can do the 16th! Let me know if that works for people.

A few people messaged me about playing the packet irl the night before the tournament--I would love for y'all to do that! Please message me again and I can send you the packet privately so you can play it :) !!

Also, it's ~*~officially~*~ going by FIRST HUNNA DAYS: Please C.L.A.P. (Cucks, Losers, And Pizzagaters) Edition

I suppose the more serious or conspiracy content will be in other tournaments?

I would definitely play questions about the 2016 election and Trump's first 100 days.

Not sure yet!! I get off work at 4:30 EST, so anything after 5:30 EST is fair game. I figure people out west may want to play too... How is 9 EST/6 PST for people? Too early, too late?

Just to be clear-- is this IRL the night before the NSC, or the night before your online reading on the 16th?

The IRL NSC, since I had originally planned this for the ninth.

It looks like about 15 people are scheduled to play this, which is a little much for a single-room shootout. Is there any plan to divide the competition into separate rooms, etc.?

My proposal, for what it's worth, is to have 2 game rooms and split the 60 tossups into 2 30-tossup packets. Randomly sort the players into the rooms and have each room play the first packet. Then put the top half of the players from both rooms into one of the rooms (the "upper" room) and then the remaining players into the other room (the "lower" room). Then play the 2nd packet.

I would also play this, although I'm iffy on whether I will be available at exactly 9 PM. If someone were to join a few minutes late, would that be fine?

Where will this be on Skype? Will you need usernames?

Great, so here's the plan. I'll be running two games at once for the first 30 questions. Everyone will be in one big Skype call, but divided into two different sidechats/groups at random. The top 1/2 from both games will move on to the latter half of the questions (you're more than welcome to stick around and spectate!)

I'll explain again, but what I was thinking was everyone stays on silent, and dings in their group-specific chat ("Me!" "Buzz!" "Objection!", that sort of thing.) I'll acknowledge the buzz and you can send me the answer in your group only, that way the other game can continue their pace. When both teams have answered, I'll say the answer in the big call.

If you could send me your skype names so I can make the over-sized call when I get home, that would be nifty! If it's too many for one call, I may switch to Google Hangout and just stream myself but retain the two skype-based groupchats. Also here's a GoogleDoc to talk among yourselves and coordinate a bit quicker than checking the forums.

Hopefully this makes sense?

Also if there's enough demand and a group of people want to play but this isn't a good time for them, I can host a second one at a better time! Just LMK; I want everyone to have fun.

I'm going to start adding people to the big Skype chat now, but pm me your Skype ID or put it in the li'l Google form, and I'll add you!

I'll probably be logged on around 8:30 EST, see you later!

I would definitely be interested in playing this another time, since tonight is not ideal for me.

We're planning to run this as a side event at the Toronto HSNCT mirror and still have not received the packets. Would someone be able to send them to us or get us in touch with the authors of this set?
