These are answers extracted from the Stanford Archive, a repository of Quiz bowl packets. Answers here were extracted using a simple Python script. Best efforts were made to minimize parsing errors, but there is no standard packet format, so errors are common.

Tips/Hints

  • To find the original clue, copy and paste the following text into a search engine:
site:quizbowl.stanford.edu/archive/ "EXAMPLE"
replacing the word EXAMPLE with the answer from the list. In some cases, "Answer: EXAMPLE" may work better.
  • If you cannot figure out what an answer is, you can find the original clues by going back in the page history to the initial revision of each list, which contains the packet from which the answer was derived (For example "Now processing mit96-ROUND_6_tossups.txt", which googles to this)
  • Many of these red links are valid redirects. That is, after doing a bit of searching, you will find an article already created on that topic just under a different name so just redirect it to the already created article. In terms of misspellings (such as individuals names) it should be up to the individual to decide on whether they think it is a commonly misspelled or easy to misspell the name and hence make a redirect for it.

Subpages

Note: Initial values includes a large number of blue links already created by the beginning of this project. I will give the total values from each page from when I first saw them (2009-05-10) as a starting initial value.
