NOTE: PAGE has put together a new team of question writers. The questions will be more like the questions you may have heard in our competition prior to the 2017-2018 season. We will still be asking 12 questions per game, but the Toss-ups and Bonus questions will be matched and the Bonus questions will all be 1-, 2- or 4-part and will once again be worth 20 points each. The 2016-2017 set of questions was added to the PAGE Question Store in October.
