Dear Hannah: LEarning (Now You Know History Quiz Bowl (NYK HQB))

September 25, 2017

Dear Hannah,

The NOW YOU KNOW History Quiz Bowl is a gameshow tells the story of 25 ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

These people have special connections to each other - and to us.

Our connections to their lives, stories and accomplishments help us to relate to them.

This allows them to disciple us - even though we may never meet them face-to-face.

The game is played in the tradition of "Jeopardy" - with a few stylistic departures.

First, I serve as host.

My role is to be the griot.

Each gameboard selection affords me the chance to introduce a person and tell their story - in 15-20 seconds.

Each story ends with a common knowledge "answer" that contestants then "question" for points.

Our second key departure - if contestants do not phrase their question properly, we chew the meat, spit out the bones, and keep LEarning.

Questions, answers, and phrasing are all of secondary importance.

The story and LEarning are our priorities.

Roll the demo ...
