This is the announcement for Oxford Open 2019, the annual tournament written and hosted by OUQS, which will be taking place on the 16th of February, 2019!

Like last year, this tournament will NOT be packet submission. The distribution (slightly altered from previous years) will be as follows (starters/bonuses per packet):

1/1 Biology
1/1 Physics
2/2 Chemistry and Other Science (slanted towards 'other')
1/1 British Literature
1/1 Anglophone Literature
1/1 European Literature
1/1 British/World/Miscellaneous Literature
1/1 History up to 1000 CE
1/1 History 1000-1500 CE
1/1 History 1500-1900 CE
1/1 History 1900-Present
[History will have a temporal distribution as its emphasis, but will also have an even spread British/European/World/Misc]
1/1 Visual Fine Arts
1/1 Auditory Fine Arts
1/1 Other Fine Arts
3/3 Thought, including Religion, Philosophy, and Social Science (e.g. Law, Politics, Economics, Linguistics, etc.), but NOT Myth.
1/1 Geography
1/1 Miscellaneous

The difficulty of the tournament will be roughly the same as previous editions of OOT.

To register for this tournament, please email [email protected] with your name and your team's name. I will only accept email entries from 19:00 BST on Wednesday 26th September; any emails before then will not result in your team's registration.

As in previous years, the field will likely be capped at 24 teams, and a waiting list will be kept in case of teams dropping out. This year we are also provisionally reserving 6/24 spaces for student teams.

The base entry fee will be £60 per team, with a £5 discount for bringing a buzzer set and a £20 discount if multiple members of your team have to travel by aeroplane to get to the tournament.

There may be side tournaments held the day after OOT; look out for details of those.

If you have any queries about the tournament, please email [email protected]
