TBRn would like to thank every last one of you who listened and participated in its first ever radio game show. A dream came true for a long time fan of Match Game named Nick Giannak III during the month of July, 2016. The success of his version of the game surprised even him, and his gratitude knows no bounds. We can guarantee that there will be another Match Game in relatively short order, and Nick can’t wait to do it all over again. This page contains the archives from TBRN’s first Match Game tournament, as well as a list of those who vied for the prizes on offer.

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.

This is the final episode of this tournament of Match Game, featuring a much enlarged panel. Amanda Markham and Jessica Silva took their game all the way to the wire. The winner received an Amazon Fire Tablet. Who won? Download to find out!
Liam and the lady's helped panel this Match Game, including new panelist Linda. Unfortunately, Ryan Bishop didn't show up for the start of the game. How would his match with Jessica Silva ultimately resolve? It wouldn't be TBRN Match Game without some wildness, and it happened in the Amanda Markham versus Riikka Kannisto match. How did that end up? Download to hear.
And we thought Episode 1 was wild? We don’t know anything at all. After much difficulty getting this game going, including forfeiting contestants and unavailable panelists, Bianca Peterek, Gabriella Conrad, Jakob Rosin, and in a surprise, Liam Erven rocked the virtual airwaves for this week's matches. The first match went off as scheduled, No. 3 Amanda Markham took on No. 6 Nikola Stojsic in a normal length game. And then, the fireworks started when No. 4 Jayson Smith and new No. 5 Riikka Kannisto played each other, Riikka replacing an unfortunate forfeiture in Jessica Hodges. Don’t’ miss this match’s epic length, including an experimental rule change unanimously agreed upon by all panelists to end it in the wildest way an episode of Match Game can possibly end. Or is it? We will certainly find out.
A wild first episode, featuring...5 panelists? Yep, Cam Dawson, Bianca Peterek, Gabriella Conrad, Misty Dawn, and a late arriving Alexander Nelson in Match 2. Match 1 featured No. 1 Chris Schulte versus no. 8 Jessica Silva, and Match 2 featured No. 2 Ryan Bishop facing off against No. 7 Missie Hoppe. How'd they go? Download this archive!
This exhibition match was the beginning of the last promotional push for Match Game applications. The originators of internet radio Match Game, Damon fibraio and Liam Erven, were playing for pride, as there was nothing at stake in this exhibition. A panel of Bianca Peterek, Misty Dawn, Cam Dawson, and Johanna Herranen provided hilarious answers and learned, as you will, just how the game is played. This could not have gone any better, so much so that we ended up playing one more round than we had to, we were having so much fun. Download the episode that made us all look forward to the real thing.
