Match Game SF

Match Game: Call for Questions

We are scheduled to do two shows of Match Game SF at Westercon 69 in Portland, Oregon, July 1-4 at the Doubletree Lloyd Center. The two shows are Friday and Sunday nights, both at 9 PM. At the moment, I only see four panelist of the needed six, so if you're going to Westercon and want to be a panelist, you should contact Westercon programming and volunteer.

It's time once again to ask people to send us questions for Match Game SF. As a reminder, MGSF is not a trivia contest, and there is never just one "right" answer. An example of a bad question is:
Albert Einstein said, "God does not play ____ with the universe."

But it contains the seed of a good question:
Albert Einstein said, "God does not play dice with the universe; however, sometimes he does play ____ with it."

See the difference?

Questions should have some connection to SF, Fantasy, fandom, or related subjects like science.

If you have questions to suggest, you can add them as comments here (I'll screen comments on this message), or you can send them to my user handle @livejournal.com, which will get to me. We'll credit people during the show.

We also continue to look for sponsors willing to donate prizes in return for promotional consideration. Convention memberships are a good thing. Donate a prize and provide us with a 30-second commercial for our announcer to read between shows. Contact me if you're interested.
