Neg 5 : Quizbowl for the Cloud


Neg 5 is a web based quizbowl tournament management system. It enables tournament directors to add collaborators to their tournaments for real-time tournament management. This ranges from managing teams and players to submitting match scoresheets electronically. Transitioning quizbowl to a cloud-based system has the potential to drastically reduce tournament waiting times, expediting the entire process.

Try it out at your next tournament!

Neg 5 is currently in the last stages of a transition phase to the next version. I've been changing the entire application and there's still a bit of work to do, but it's getting closer every day!

Current Features

  • Support for standard ACF and NAQT quizbowl tournament formats
  • Infinite number of collaborators at admin or non-admin levels
  • Team and player management
  • Manual match entry
  • Self-updating electronic scoresheets for match entry
  • Realtime statistics
  • And more!

Upcoming Features

  • Support for hsquizbowl.org database upload
  • Eventual support for NAQT QBJ export
  • Realtime protest handling
  • Tournament chat
  • Built in timer for timed matches

I'd love to hear your ideas on what you'd like the application to support!
