A text-based quizbowl packet reader and database created by Geoffrey Wu,

with contributions from Sky (g3ner1c), Mason Lack, Brian Lai, and others. The python API wrapper module was created by Rohan Arni and is currently maintained by Sky (g3ner1c).

Packets are collected from quizbowlpackets.com and parsed into JSON files using a Python-based quizbowl packet parser. If you notice any issues with packets or categorization, please report the question (preferred) or contact me on discord at thedoge42. Packets are numbered numerically, if possible, and otherwise by alphabetical order of their names.

Feel free to contribute to the source code on Github. If you have a feature you want to see in qbreader, you can open a new issue.

Why QB Reader?

What does making an account do?

Making an account with a verified email gives you the following features:

Why do I need to verify my email?

This is to prevent spam accounts from being created. Your email will not be used for anything other than verifying your account. You can reset your password using your email regardless of whether or not it is verified.

Does it cost money to create an account?

No. Geoword is the only feature that costs money. All of the other features of QB Reader are completely free.

Where can I request a set?

You can do so here.

Can I get a copy of all the questions?

Check out the backups.

What do the dots mean in the difficulty scale?

The dots are taken from the college quizbowl calendar difficulty scale.
