Dusting Off the ____

It's been quite a while since I printed any new Match Game SF questions, and we have a lot of games planned for SpikeCon. There are two shows planned: the first on "preview night" (Wednesday before the official start of the convention), where we expect to have up to four games, and the second on Friday night, where we have up to six games planned. That means a total of ten games, with four questions per game. Forty question is a lot.

This afternoon, I spent a couple of hours working on the computer setup on which we print the questions, which is upstairs in Fernley House and is rarely used for anything else. It turns out that it's been so long since it was last used that the laptop computer internal battery had run down and I had to spend time resetting things. Eventually I got it together, though.

In the next few days, I'll be picking out the questions we've used before, plus some new ones that Lisa and I have developed. As usual, If you have an idea for a question, send it to me and if we can use it, we will.

If Tonopah wins its Westercon bid, there will be a free membership to Westercon 74 in the prize packages for Friday's game. As it is, we have some small prizes that we got from the Mizpah to give away on Wednesday night, and have developed a few questions that tie in to that sponsorship.
