DEES (originally standing for "Demonstratively Excellent Educational Saturnalia," but later to "Desperate Editors Elicit Support") was a fall 2014 packet-submission tournament announced by head-editor Charlie Dees, with science assistance from Victor Prieto and Brian McPeak. Upon the apparent desertion of Charlie three weeks prior to the tournament, Victor and Brian took over his responsibilities. The final set was packet-submission-optional, and was completed with help from Ike Jose, Rob Carson, Mike Cheyne, Will Alston, Shan Kothari, John Lawrence, Jacob Reed, Tejas Raje, Saul Hankin, Mik Larsen, Cody Voight and Matt Weiner.
Owing to a miscommunication, DEES featured an experimental 21/21 distribution.
