Battle Scores

Battle 1 Recap

Something to consider for next Battle: Remember to take your best guess if you do not know an answer. Since there is no penalty for a wrong answer, a guess is better than bringing up a blank sheet of paper, and who knows, your team might get lucky!

There were a few challenges to questions. These challenges will be reviewed, and the decisions announced at the beginning of Battle 2. If points are to be awarded from the challenges, those points will be added to Battle 2's scores.

We look forward to seeing everyone next week. Remember, next Wednesday during Battle is the first time you can return your order slips to purchase books for the guest author to sign during the Battle Awards Ceremony.

Practice Battle Recap

Congratulations goes out to all the teams for their efforts during Practice Battle. The scores from the Practice Battle do not count towards the running total that determines the overall winner of Battle of the Books; however, we hope the experience of playing in the Practice Battle helps clear up some of the confusion about what will be expected for the official Battles.

As a reminder, all Battle participants should be in their teams' squares by 4pm if they are to play in round 1. If you are late, you may not join your team during round 1. However, take a seat on the sidelines as players may be added or switched out before rounds 2 and 3. In addition, a lot of warnings were issued during Practice Battle. Be cautious of talking between questions in order to avoid the possibility of losing points. Unsportsmanlike conduct can also result in warnings and/or deduction of points, so please no grandstanding or heckling.

Now for the results of everyone's hardwork! Please note: this does not reflect the results of the challenge made during the Speed Round. The results of that challenge will be discussed before the next Battle.

See everyone back on Wednesday for Battle 1!

Practice Battle Recap

Practice Battle: StE:28, StMB28, LH:23, StMW:21, UR:20, GL:20, PN:19Congratulations on a great effort during Practice Battle.

Please note: you will note see any points from challenged questions in the scores posted here. Any possible points received from challenges made during Practice Battle would be awarded during the beginning of the next battle and go toward's that battle's total score. However, Practice Battle is where the points do not matter, so there will be no additional points awarded, however, we will let you know how the challenges would have turned out.

A few things to remember when answering questions at Battle 1:
* Questions worth multiple points will require the number of answers that the question is worth. For example: a question worth three points, will require three of the multiple choices letters or, in the case of a fill-in-the-blanks, three words to answer fully.
* Matching questions will use a column of numbers that should be matched with a column of letters.
* The timer does not start until Miss Tiffany has finished reading the question on the screen. When time's up, the team may no longer write on their answer sheet.

We look forward to seeing everyone next week!
