MAGNI was a regular-difficulty, non-packet-submission tournament written for use in October 2011.

The project was a 14-packet collaboration between UCSD (Auroni Gupta, Chris Chiego, Vicky Hwang, Rohan Mehta, Peicong Dong, Andrew Honda), Yale (Matt Jackson, John Lawrence, Kevin Koai) and Jerry Vinokurov. Named as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the lack of a successor to THUNDER II, MAGNI was written with the intention of being appropriate for teams at all levels and enforced a strict length limit of seven lines on all tossups. Though the set was largely well-received among the 104 teams that played it at ten sites, major critiques of the set included a reticence with pronouns that confused players, frequent grammatical errors, and hard bonus parts that were systematically very hard [1].
