So I want to see if anyone would be interested in doing this. I want to set up a tournament with about 100 pre selected topics. Topics that are not typically normal and that will challenge people to debate them. Anything from movies, to tv shows, to story writing etc. A variety of unique topics that are not typical

How I would like this to happen

when people are drawn to face each other

Round 1

Person A vs Person B

3 topics are drawn at random and given to both of them. They select one of the three and who will be con or pro. If no definitive answer is agreed on, it will be selected randomly and they will be assigned a topic or position.

As that topic is selected , it is marked off and will not be used again throughout the tournament.

This continues to the end of the tournament.

_____________________________________________________________________

I'm open for ideas on how to edit this but It's something that is not typical debates and that will embrace some unique and fun topics

not sure what the prizes are yet but I'm hoping to range them from something like

hundred or so dollars worth for first
50 ish second
gift card for third

I could do it as games, cards, etc

This is just a throw out too see if anyone would be down to do no typical debates in a tournament format

How many people would be in this tournament? Are we talking 4 or something bigger like 8 or 16?

This sounds fun so it will be fun topics and not like "would hillary make a good VP for Trump?"(a not typical debate topic)

Would like to see some sample topics, though.

I want to do some star wars topics, ethical implications of game vs thrones, x show vs y show, possibly game debates etc
