What would you think if after each debate round the participants had 15
minutes to discuss the round and come to a consensus on who won? If they
came to a consensus, the winner would be awarded a 1.5 round win and the
loser would get a .5 round loss. In other words each team would get a
half round bonus for coming to a consensus. If no consensus was reached
the judge would render a decision.

In the history of competitive debate has there already been
experimentation with such a concept?
