DITCH 2020 (A Packet about Hungary)

Post by dpeelen »

Hello all! These past days I have composed a set of 20 tossups all about anything related to Hungary with some editing help from my homies Ananya Tadigadapa, Anish Kodali, and Chris Goodrich. I have named it DITCH (Danny's Incredibly Terrible Content about Hungary) since I am still a beginner in question writing. I aimed for this packet to be College Regs to College Nats (and 6-8 lines) although I cannot guarantee all questions are at that difficulty (again I'm a noob). Lastly, most of the packet content is history, literature, fine arts, geography, and trash. My idea is that I will read this on Tuesday (8/25) at 9:30 PM EDT (I have work, so 9 PM doesn't work) in the HSQB Discord tomorrow unless there are objections.

Remember to drink water :))

Doesn't it makes more thematic sense for players to have a shot of Unicum before playing?

I've been waiting 15 years for this packet. I'll be there if I can figure out how to get to the HSQB Discord.

Ok guys! Sorry for it kind of being late but I’m seeing some boomers showing interest in this packet so I’m going to read this in the main quiz bowl discord now.

WOW! DITCH actually had a very good turnout, much better than I would've ever expected. Thank to all who came out, this really meant a lot to me saying it was my first complete set ever. If there was any tips anyone had to either improve my packet, either content-wise or just wording, or to improve my question-writing skills in general, please feel free to private message me on here or on Discord. I should have to the packet on the archive soon, although I do have to make some small changes.

Also worth noting now, I will be reading DITCH again on the HSQB at 9PM EDT tomorrow (Wednesday 8/26) for anyone else who either missed it or regretted not showing up.

Oh, and scores:

Jakob- 60

Conor- 35

Bruce- 25

Vikshar- 20

Aalok- 20

Nick- 10

Max- 5

Zach- 0

I love you all and remember to drink water :))

[EDIT: The packet will be read at 8PM EDT instead]
