Standard Tossup Count
50 (This is the generic denominator used to normalize scores for reporting purposes. That is, statistics under these scoring rules are reported in terms of points per 50 tossups heard. For rules that use timed games, it represents a typical number of tossups heard in a game, though variation exists. For rules that use untimed games, it represents the number of tossups that will be read in regulation in a standard game.)
Power Tossups
Tossup Value
Interrupt Penalties
Bonus Questions
Yes (up to 20 points each; bonuses bounce back)
Overall Score Divisor
10 (This is the largest integer that must be a factor of an overall score. It is used in error-checking.)
