"I've heard all about this Panoply thing.
They say it's the funnest adult event at YIH every year!
Can you tell me more?"

Below are answers to the questions we've been asked so far.
Additional Q&A will be added as more questions come in.

How are teams created?

You can assemble your own team or we'll put you on one. You can register your team together or each participant can register separately. 

We highly recommend inviting people of varying ages and areas of interest since the game covers, well, a panoply of topics.

You can have between 8 and 12 people on your team. No more, no fewer, no exceptions.

How does the game run?

  • 8:30 PM: Gather in the YIH social hall for food, shmoozing, and a little trash-talking. Tables are not reserved in advance (unless your team becomes a sponsor), so it's best to arrive as close to 8:30 as possible to grab a good spot.
  • 9:00 PM sharpThe first round of games begins. There are several rounds with short breaks (60 to 90 seconds each) in between. 
  • Approximately 9:50 PM: End of the first half, and the start of an intermission for more food, shmoozing, and of course, trash-talking.
  • Approximately 10:00 PM: Intermission continues as you view the answers to all of the questions from the first half.
  • Approximately 10:40 PM: End of the second half; dessert is served!
  • Approximately 10:50 PM: Enjoy your dessert as you view the answers to the questions from the second half.
  • 11:15 PM: Winners are announced, the Panoply Belt is awarded, trash-talking continues, pictures are taken, tears are shed, as We Are The Champions plays over the speakers.

What are the rules?

  • Phones may not be used at any time during the game. If phones are seen by the judges, the team's answers for that round will be disqualified.
  • If you need to take a call, it is required that you step outside, take your call, and return at the end of the round.
  • At the end of each round, answer sheets for that round must be turned in to the judges' table. Answer sheets will not be accepted once the next round has begun.
  • The judges' decisions are final.

SCORING:

  • For each round, the teams will be ranked by their percent of correct answers in that round. The first place team will receive 5 points, second place 4 points, third place 3 points, fourth place 2 points, and fifth place will get 1 point.
  • In case of a tie in a particular round, the tying teams will all receive the points for their place, and the remaining teams will be scored for the remaining places. For example, if there is a 2-way tie for second place, points will be awarded as follows: 1st place: 5 points; 2nd place: 4 points to each team; 3rd place: 3 points, etc. (In this case, more than 5 teams will be awarded points.)
  • At the end of the event, all scores will be tallied and the team with the highest score will be named the 2022 Panoply Champions.
