Welcome to the information page for the 2017 edition of TBRN’s Match Game contest!
Or read on for all the information one could ever need.
What is Match Game?
Match Game is a rather simple game involving senses of humor and fill in the blank type questions. Each contestant is asked a question with a blank to fill. The contestant thinks of an answer that might match what the panelists might say. For example, “the baby ate the fish blank.” The panelists write their answers. Once finished, Nick calls on each person, one at a time, to reveal their answers, starting with the contestant. In this example, if the contestant said “fish tank”, he or she would match with the panelists who said “fish tank”, but not the panelists who said “fish tale” or any other answer. This persists for three rounds. At the end of those three rounds, the contestant with the most matches wins. Any tiebreaker (super match) or disputed match questions are similar and asked if necessary, although they are generally completions of a phrase rather than a sentence. E.G. “Long Island blank.” Examples of all of this can be found in the archives below.
When and how?
TBRN Match Game occurs on Saturdays at 4 PM EDT, in a special channel on the TeamTalk server.

This was, without doubt, the shortest Match Game in TBRN’s history of doing this. A bit odd for the final, but what can you do? For the first time without Bianca, a mish mash of old panelists, plus rookie Derek Lane, presided over the final between Zach Mann and Steve Matzura. Who would win it all? Find out!
This was the smoothest episode of the season so far, and it was really quite obvious. The panel consisted of Bianca Peterek's likely final Match Game appearance of the season, joined by a returning Gemma Hoath, rookie panelist Alan Ferguson, and old pal Venison88. The semi-finals consisted of two lively matches. No. 1. Roger frischenmeyer and no. 6. Steve Matzura helped to bust our guts to kick off the game. Then no. 2. Riikka Kannisto and no. 4. Zach Mann continued the gut busting. Don't miss this match in particular to find one of the best, yet most un-matchable, answers any panelist can possibly give. Who would move on to the finals?
These matches were so long! How long were they? Between technical problems, supermatch, and the out there panelist answers, this was the longest Match Game we've ever had. Join Bianca Peterek from last week, as well as Linda, Liam Erven, and Jayson Smith, switching from contestant to panelist. No. 3. Jane Suh, playing for an Amazon Fire Tablet, duked it out with No. 6, Steve Matzura, in a lively match that we thought would be the longest of the season. ...That is, until No. 4. Zach Mann and fill-in no. 5. Gemma Hoath obliterated all known Match Game records for longest match ever. Who would move on for the right to continue playing for a Zoom H1?
The opening episode for Match Game 2017 wasn’t entirely smooth, but it was a ton of fun, nevertheless! Armando and the ladies (Bianca Peterek, Misty Dawn, and Match Game 2016 champion Jessica Silva) were on the opening panel. No. 1. Roger Frischenmeyer, playing for an Amazon Fire 7 Tablet, took on a returning No. 8. Jayson Smith, playing for an Anker PowerCore+ 26800mAh Portable Charger with Quick Charge 3.0. This snappy match was a great way to kick off the season and, more or less, went according to plan. Match 2, on the other hand, was the battle of the backups, as neither originally announced contestant made it to the server. New No. 2. Riikka Kannisto played for a JBL Flip 4 waterproof Bluetooth Speaker, while new No. 7. Iyana played for the same USB battery that Jayson did. How’d it go? Download and find out!
