Quiz Bowl Blogpost #1: 29 Jun 2016 — Buying Questions Galore

Our June 2016 purchase of Questions Galore was nearly a year in the making. You think, “How complicated can it be if all you’re buying is a quizbowl writing business? A computer–maybe– and a few computer files–maybe– and you’re done!”

Well…you have to agree on what quizbowl assets are being bought and being sold, arrive at a price, ensure that your biggest new Scholastic Bowl customer feels warm and fuzzy, and balance the new writing burden so your current quizbowl customers all still get their questions on time.

Plus you have to update the 40 total pages on your website , your e-mail list, your catalog for the year, and your buzzer affiliate . And a few other things I forget now.

It’s not rocket science, or even a STEM class, perhaps. But it’s still been a lot of work.

Fortunately, Mike Hurley and the others at Questions Galore were great and have made the transition about as easy as it could have been.

The only thing they couldn’t do is ensure that all of their old quizbowl customers came along for the ride–but they did as much as they could even for that.

So if you are switching over from Questions Galore, especially if you play Scholastic Bowl with the Illinois Elementary School Association, try us out for 2016-17! We will accommodate you as much as we possibly can and look forward to your joining our large worldwide client list that already includes the U.S., Brazil and Albania(!).

And if you didn’t know they played quizbowl in Albania–well, until they ordered our subscription set, I didn’t know either.
