Tournament Text: John 1-3
This year, at the pre-season tournament there will be a format change. Traditionally in a game one player has the ability to answer all 15 questions, but not so for this event. For this event, each player will only be able to answer 4 questions before they "quiz out." What this will mean is that after a player has correctly answered 4 toss-ups, they will no longer be allowed to buzz in on a toss-up. However, that player will still be allowed to assist the team in answering bonuses.
When a player has correctly answered four toss-ups, one of the official scorekeepers should note this to the quizmaster. For this event, simply saying the word "four" will suffice. If there is a discrepancy between scorekeepers, or the quizmaster needs clarification, the clock should be stopped, and the matter resolved. Then the game will begin again. This process should be fast, and not use very much time.
In the event of a player buzzing in after having answered four toss-ups correctly, then that player will be counted as wrong, and the rest of his team will not have a chance to answer that toss-up.
We will encourage players to keep tally marks of their correct buzzes in front of them. However, those tallies are unofficial. Any questions should be directed toward Josiah Gorman (email@example.com) (513-858-2695). He will also be at the tournament.
