T-Party was a recurring tournament hosted by Harvard during the 1990's. The 1995 incarnation of T-Party is particularly infamous for containing atrocious questions which have come to typify the lower standards of 1990's quizbowl. Though the practice of hosting tournaments named "T-Party" at Harvard fell into neglect during the early 2000's, an mACF tournament called T-Party was hosted at Harvard in December of 2008, as well as at a number of mirrors across the country. A 2010 T-Party involved Harvard players Andy Watkins and Bruce Arthur, as well as Minnesota players Rob Carson, Bernadette Spencer, and Mike Cheyne, among others (including Shantanu Jha). It remains to be seen if additional T-Parties will follow.
