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.

JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Bluetooth speaker
JBL has updated its Flip, creating a fantastic all rounder that sounds good wherever it goes. But remember, folks…waterproof doesn’t mean it can swim, and we take no responsibility if speakers are destroyed in the ocean.
Zoom H1 Ultra-Portable Digital Audio Recorder
This recorder is still the best introduction to portable audio recording on the market, featuring high quality internal microphones and an easy to use interface. Bob Sarnowski still owns his…And he still uses it.
