Qwiz5 Quizbowl Essentials Resource Thread

Post by Joshua Rutsky » Mon Jan 28, 2019 8:04 pm

Ready to power more tossups? Tired of thinking “How did they get that?” after your opponent buzzes?

Qwiz is ready to help! Today we are launching our Qwiz5 Quizbowl Essentials, a free resource to help you boost your game! In each Qwiz5 installment, we’ll explore an answer line and its five most frequent clues. This is no mere list of facts to memorize - Qwiz5 is about providing context to clues you’ve probably heard before, because understanding what’s being asked is crucial to answering faster and more accurately!

The first four installments are live now:

The Magic Flute
Tay-Sachs Disease
The Battle of Hastings
Blanche DuBois

You can check them out at http://qwizbowl.com/qwiz5! We’ll be posting new installments twice a week to the website, so keep checking back for updates--and if there's a topic you'd like to see a Qwiz5 on, drop us a note at hello@qwizbowl.com and let us know!

Thanks, and happy Qwizzing!
