Events covered: Game Night, Photoshop Contest, Quiz Bowl, Run Club
Hey everyone! I have a few different things I’d like to talk about and I don’t want to flood the main page with multiple posts so here is your all in one stop shop for Ja - ket poe tay toes (cuckoo, anyone? No? OK). First up:
We will be playing Evolve on PC on Tuesday, August 2nd at 8PM EST
Yes. This is not in July. This month is my birthday, a vacation, and also I have to give an hour long presentation on the glory of my scientific progress on the 21st. Due to this I’m pushing it back a bit. We will still have an August game night at the end of August.
Evolve is now free to play and available on Steam. We will work out teams on the night of.
I mentioned it earlier but I will be putting the contest on hiatus unless someone wants to take up the mantle for a while. I will resume it after Quiz Bowl has ended. I made a bit of a pact with myself a while back that I wasn’t going to let TAY monopolize my time :D.
The first round of Quiz Bowl is going to be tomorrow July 13th at 8pm Eastern. The first two teams to play are already aware and have worked very well to find a time where for the first time in history, we have all 8 people in attendance. This is almost as exciting as that time when I pushed the event start 3 hours later so Barkspawn could attend and then she flaked on us! Wow!
ANYWAY...make sure to stop by the TAY Discord to watch and discuss and laugh, cry, and generally empathize with the herding of cats both literal and figuratively that is TAY TRIVIA CHALLENGE/QUIZ BOWL/STUFF. I also made an updated bracket
In this new bracket, the next teams to play (sorry for any confusion pigmatron!) is team Barkstar NoviGore and TRHP. After that the winner of round one will face off against PTPT, followed by round two winners vs. shkg.
Note that until the first week of august the questions will not be indicative of the final format but will be “whatever furby can find lying around that is a question with an answer”
Team Abraquidechkadow: Quiddity, Kidechka, DisturbedShadow, Abracadaniel
The Doomed Dukes of Lolicat: Meathead, Raithulu, Armuun, AlmightyDuke
Team PTPT: PHC, Pigmatron, TGRIP, Twinkling82
Team SHKG: Hyconner, shardik, kcet, Gugsy
Team BarkStar NoviGore: Geostar, Tygore (maybe), Novibear, Barkspawn
Team PSwii2008, Celia, Reiner, Twizm
Quiddity did you give up on ever finishing the game? Otherwise if anyone wants to run and just log points I can make a spreadsheet for us. I won’t be doing a formal run club until the Fall. I am on Nike+ so if anyone wants to add me we can do challenges against each other in the interim.
