Thought Monstrosity on Skype (August 26th, 2017)

There will be a Skype mirror of Thought Monstrosity on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 starting at 11 AM EST run by me. Information about the set can be found here. The exclusive purpose of this mirror is to allow those who can't/couldn't make it to the earlier in-person sites at VCU and Michigan to play the tournament. It will cost $10 a person to play, just like at the in-person sites.

Sign-up will be on this google doc. The field is currently capped at 6 two-person teams, though that can probably be expanded if there's enough interest and I can find enough staffers.

I don't know for sure if I'll be available this day or not, but there's a good chance. If anyone needs a very rusty sociologist/linguist (who hasn't studied the field or the college quizbowl canon in years) to play with, let me know and I'll keep you updated on my availability.

I'd like to play this if I'm available that day. Any chance there can be 6 teams with some teams of 3? There are currently 3 free agents including myself and only one empty team slot.

This has been expanded to 6 three-person teams. The spreadsheet has been updated to reflect this change.

A logistics email has been sent out to players. Note that the tournament will now start at 11 AM EST (as opposed to 10) and we will have a brief lunch break after prelims.

Is it to late to join a team?

Young's final call, obviously, but half of the teams have a spot open, so I doubt it.

Yeah, there are a few spots open. PM'd Andy about logistical details.

After prelims, Rob P-Zombie Presents: Terrapins All the Way Down (Jordan Brownstein and Jason Golfinos) defeated What we don't know isn't knowledge (Joey Goldman, Marshall Steinbaum, and Nikhil Venkatesh) in an advantaged final in the former's favor. Stats can be found here. The finals packet (packet 6) was also read in a scrimmage/shootout, leaving one packet unread - it'll be read in the IRC sometime, after which the set will be posted. Thanks to everyone who played!
