NAQT Tournament Home Page:
Format and Rules: Games will consist of 20 tossups and the associated bonuses, split into two untimed halves. The general format will consist of preliminary round robins, followed by regrouping into another round robin based on performance in the prelims. While we cannot guarantee a specific number of games at this time, we *can* guarantee that we will do our best to provide *all* teams with at least 7 games. In our previous tournaments, all teams played between 8 and 10 games.
We will be playing with NAQT’s standard rules, scoring, and timing, with the sole exception of untimed halves. In particular, we will **not be using bounce-back bonuses** to allow teams to prepare for the ruleset at MSNCT.
First team: $70 / Subsequent teams: $60 each Bringing a buzzer system: -$10 each (up to 2) * Teams traveling over 150 miles (one way): -$10 Teams bringing a staffer: -$10 each ** Minimum fee (per team): $40
New to quiz bowl discount — Any school that has not participated in a pyramidal quiz bowl tournament (e.g., a tournament run on NAQT questions, or any tournament using pyramidal tossups and three-part
bonuses) between September 1, 2017 and January 1, 2019 automatically qualifies for the minimum fee of $40 per team.
* – For the purposes of this discount, the buzzer system must conform to NAQT’s guidelines for its national tournaments. In particular, systems must be wired, and must be able to operate independently of a computer.
This means that Inquisitor systems are *not* eligible for this discount.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
** – If your team can bring a moderator that has experience reading quiz bowl with NAQT timings, PLEASE let me know as soon as possible.
