Eyes That Do Not See (or Eyes for short) is a tossup-only visual arts tournament by Mike Bentley, presented in visual form. As of 2013, there have been four incarnations of the tournament, with a fifth forthcoming.

Mechanics

The tournament is run as a PowerPoint presentation. Each tossup begins with a statement of what the question is asking for (e.g. "Identify the artist" or "Name the painting"). The "clues" for each tossup are a set of 6 to 10 slides. Each slide contains an image, such that the first slide contains the hardest image and the last slide the easiest image (imitating a regular pyramidal quizbowl tossup). Slides worth extra points have a different-colored background to indicate that they are worth power; regular slides for 10 points are black and the giveaway slide is green, to indicate the end of the tossup.
