Mega Whats 2011 – The 3rd National Open Quizzing Championship 

Galaxy 2011 | Quiz Review

Galaxy 2011, after being postponed twice, was finally conducted in the cramped auditorium of JIMS, Kalkaji on the 26th day of November. Cramped not because of the small size but because of the number of teams that turned up for the quiz(80+), with a few teams from Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata. After a quick little yoga exercise to switch off the cell phones, the 25 question prelims began. The prelims were a mix of business, brands, current affairs and sports.
With a difference of 4 marks separating the sixth team from the seventh, the selection of six teams was a task well cut out. The teams that made it to the finals were from IILMx2, FMS, IIFT, Hansraj and Sri Venkateswara College. The finals had 4 rounds- Uchhal Kud, Iski Topi Uske Sar, Zero Katta and Ae! Kya Bolti Tu. After the relatively easy initial rounds, the teams were all warmed-up for the high octane barrage of questions that were to follow. And the two teams that dealt with them with ease were the teams from Venky and FMS who were well versed with their Pixar and La Liga, while IIFT who messed up with their Tennis Grand Slam, was unable to build on the momentum of their foundation. After the end of the penultimate round the scorecard read- 12(Hansraj), 16(IILM), 21(IILM), 27(IIFT), 38(Venky) and 49(FMS).
For the final round the teams had to switch to the top gear as it was time to perform or perish – do or die at every question. With two teams getting eliminated after every round it came down to the last two questions. With Venky at 42 and FMS at 49 the quiz was all set for a thrilling finish. The boys from Venky were in no mood to make life easy for FMS as they opted for a 15 pointer and they got it right too. Scorecard before the final question- Venky- 57, FMS- 49. FMS now had two choices, either opt for an 8 pointer and come level with Venky and test their knowledge (and luck) in the tie-breaker or go for a 15 pointer and win it fair and square. But when FMS identified him as Nek Chand, Venky did a barely audible high-five and exchanged smiles since they knew they were going back home with deeper pockets than FMS.
Final Scores- Venky- 57, FMS- 41, IIFT- 34

QOTB- Review and Questions

TAPMI’s flagship event QOTB (Quiz on the Beach) was an engaging and entertaining evening, hosted by renowned quizmaster Avinash Mudaliar.
In the first of its kind, Tapmi and the QM decided to have a crossword to keep the audience engaged before starting the prelims.
The prelim was extremely brilliant and IMO, some questions deserved final status.

The finals consisted of 5 rounds with 2 dry, 2 theme and one personality based buzzer round.

Tejaswi Udupa(Yahoo) and Ramkey (KPMG) started the quiz in style and maintained their lead till the last question. The team from Cognizant (Shubham and Venkatesh) came a close second.

The quiz, on a whole, was fantastic- wrt content, presentation and punctuality (considering participants had to catch early buses)

Wish to see many more lively Quizzes on the Beach. You can find below the prelims and questions from the crossword.

The final was completely on First Strike Fairplay (which is now popular in the Bangalore UG circuit). The most striking round was the innovative Anagram round, which had 4 sets of 2 questions back to back, answers to which were anagrams. Eg: AVIS-VISA

The quiz also had a dedicated Acer round, which was won by Shubham (An Acer laptop was the prize).

Result: Team 3- Shubham and Venkatesh won  the quiz followed by Yahoo and Team 7..

In short, a fantastic quiz and hoping to see more from Mitesh.
