This tournament will consist of a minimum of eight games for all teams in a modified NAQT/national format:

  • Each game shall consist of two halves of ten tossups each, with each correct tossup followed by a three-part bonus.
  • Correct tossup answers are ten points each, with an additional five-point “power” awarded for a correct answer given before a pre-determined point in the tossup.
  • Unlike other NAQT/national tournaments, we will NOT assess a five-point penalty for interrupting the moderator during the tossup with an incorrect answer.

This tournament will feature the twenty tossup/bonus format using the DEFT set by Darien HS. (This set is also being used at the Piasa Bird Invite on 1/13/18. So if you are attending that tournament you won't be able to attend this one.) Games consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each followed by non-rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will feature "powers" (additional points awarded for correct buzzes very early in the question) and "negs" (five point deductions for incorrect answers before the question is finished).
