Scattergories @ Michigan (2/25/17)

Post by women, fire and dangerous things »

This is the announcement for the Michigan site of Scattergories, a side event which will be played on Saturday evening after the conclusion of (This) Tournament Is a Crime on February 25. See viewtopic.php?f=8&t=18920 for the global announcement.

Team formation is being organized on the spreadsheet that Auroni shared, but to officially register, teams should send me an email. We'll be doing teams of 4, and the field cap is TBD since it depends on how many people volunteer to staff. (Speaking of which, please put your name on the spreadsheet if you're willing to staff!) Six or eight teams seems like the most plausible workable final numbers, though.

I'm going to put a tentative field cap of 6 teams on this, as we have three staffers signed up and enough free agents for precisely 6 teams (with one 5-person team*) now. If there's a surge in interest and I get another staffing volunteer, I might expand to 8, but for now, be sure to join a team and sign up if you'd like a guaranteed spot.

*Meaning it's okay if one team adds a fifth, but I won't allow an already very high-powered team to do so.

UPDATE: Billy Busse is staffing now, so we can support up to 8 teams. Obviously 7 is non-ideal though.

There has now been a massive influx of staff, but as there are only 10 packets, I'll keep the field cap at 8. People who are still free agents should feel free to join a team as a fifth player, as long as that team doesn't already have Jordan Brownstein or Auroni Gupta on it.

Why don't you just make more packets?
