Match Game SF

Game Changer

I know that April 1 is very late to be announcing a change to a show that we're doing on April 2 at Norwescon (9 PM Friday evening, Cascade 9), but after much reflection and consideration, we've decided that recreating a 1970s game show is simply too retro for most of our audience, a really significant number of whom weren't even born when the show originally aired. So we're going to catch up to the early 2000s by changing the show to:

Win Spring Schoenhuth's Jewelry
(AKA "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth-Grade Teacher?")

Contestants will take on the owner of the Retro Rocket Emporium in answering trivia questions related to SF, Fantasy, Fandom, and related subjects (that includes science). The winner of the main game will face off with dinogrl in a Best of Ten Trivia Challenge with the grand prize being a fabulous collection of gold and silver jewelery from Springtime Creations with an estimated retail price of One Million Dollars more than $1000!

I'll be doing the "Jimmy Kimmel" role as second fiddle and question-poser during the second and bonus rounds. In related news, I'm delighted to announce that I've recruited a new Show Producer to deal with the on-the-day setup work, which will make my job as show (co-) host considerably easier. yourbob is always my first choice, but since he's not available, welcome Opal Firlo to the team.
