Just for fun and because she was bored, Lisa tried starting the balky computer that refused to recognize the touch pad last night. Now it works. Go figure.

Match Game: Which One?

It has come to my attention that some people are confused as to which version of Match Game we will be playing at Westercon. There have been several different iterations of the show, some with substantially different rules.

For the record, we are playing the version of the show that originally aired from 1973 to 1982 under the names "Match Game," "Match Game '73" ('74, '75, etc.), and "Match Game PM." The specific rules are a hybrid of the "daytime" and "nighttime" games.

Chris Lambert's Match Game Homepage has a good overview of the version we will play, although we do not have the Match the Audience bonus round.

We plan to play six games in two hours. I think this is reasonable given that we played five in 90 minutes at BayCon, and we rushed game 5 because we were running out of time.
