Beyond the Flavor
The 420 Game will, in some ways, be a typical Stanford-type "game"
over the 4/20/2001 weekend. There will be an important event on the
evening of 4/20, but the game proper will begin on Saturday morning,
as is standard. The game should last 20-24 hours for the fastest
teams. Our plan is that the 420 game will be at or above the
standards set by recent games, but
those who play will be the final judge of that.
Game control has been involved in 15 separate games as GC or
