BCQC InFest 2018 Reports | The Revolutionary Quiz

The Revolutionary Quiz 

Set by Omkar Dhakephalkar and Pranav Pawar
Format: Written

1st: Ranajeet Soman and Kunal Sawardekar - 24 points
2nd: Aditya Gadre and Aniket Khasgiwale - 17 points
3rd: Anannya Deb and Anand Sivashankar - 10.5 points

Dhake and PP - aka Molotov and Ribbentrop for the purposes of this quiz - put up an entertaining set with a Revolutionary theme. There were several rounds for the written quiz - which were both quirky and interesting. I particularly liked the concept of "Torture" on the double questions which could lead to more information worth a point or a penalty of 1 point for human rights abuses!

The questions themselves were fun and interesting - a tough ask for a quiz with this kind of a serious topic. I also liked how the QMs mixed things up with scoring and topics (including very liberal interpretations of Revolution). Perhaps in hindsight the quiz was a bit too tough and low scoring - but I feel the post lunch nature of the quiz had a lot to do with that.

Hoping to see more fun sets on not traditionally fun topics from these two.
