The Fall Academic Tournament, or FAcT, is a high school tournament hosted by Yale each October. It has traditionally used an NAQT A-set and attracts local teams from across New England and the Tri-State area. According to this post from erstwhile club president Andrew Uzzell, there may have been a FAcT in the distant past, but the current version of the tournament began in 2005.

At FAcT VII, hosted in 2011, Yale began its tradition of using puns for bracket names with the Steinbeck-inspired "East of Leadin" and "Thirtylla Flat"). Yale bracket names since then have fluctuated wildly in terms of their humor, erudition, or lack thereof.
