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.”

Match Game 2019 Episode 3: Beware the technicals! Darcy Versus Shaun and Jayson versus Sammy: August 3, 2019
It's the semifinals for TBRN's Match Game tournament, and they're not without incident. Both games took place in a fashion that could best be described as limping, but they did take place and had some quality humor involved. Two of Darcy Burnarde, Shaun Everiss, Jayson Smith, and Sammy Wredberg will move on to the finals next week. Who did? Download to find out!
We had an idea that this year’s tournament would be good last week. And then this episode happened. We start with Shaun Everiss, fresh off a serious technical scare, versus David Dunphy. Questions in this match set the tone for how the rest of the night would go, as two contestants who understood the game very well would duke it out in a good, quick game. And then, the second match, an instant classic between Sammy Wredberg and Jenny Kim, set the record for the longest game ever. Unlike other games to do so before, this one was well executed by host and contestant alike, with funny questions and equally hilarious answers throughout. This would end Nick’s favorite episode of Match Game to date, and sets up a potentially wild semifinal.
