The William Gaddis Experimental Tournaments are high-difficulty tournaments which have been run as side events during NAQT's HSNCT.

2008 Gaddis

This tournament was written by Jonathan Magin, in collaboration with Ahmad Ragab, Dennis Jang, Shantanu Jha, Mike Bentley, Gautam Kandlikar, Charles Meigs, Greg Peterson, and Katy Peters. It notably used the 6-point difficulty scale. It took rather long to finish. It ran somewhat late.

2009 Gaddis

This tournament was written by Jonathan Magin, Ahmad Ragab, Shantanu Jha, Mike Bentley, Gautam Kandlikar, Chris Chiego, Eric Mukherjee, and Jerry Vinokurov, with contributions by Guy Tabachnick, Mik Larsen, Kent Buxton, Dwight Wynne, Donald Taylor, and probably some others. Though Jonathan Magin had proposed to run this in a different format, it ended up being played just like any other quiz bowl event with a draft.

Stats for the traditional format can be found here:http://results.scobo.net/SQBS.aspx?org=UCIbackup&id=5&page=standings.
