CSS Results for 05/15/2019 (Game 150)
« on: May 15, 2019, 05:17:01 PM »
These are the doldrums for the show right now. It seems we have no budget left and plenty of shows to go. Let's count it up:

-3 blown DSWs, 2 with DSWSDs
-9 overs of no more than 250, breaking up into 5 WSDs (including the DSWSDs), 2 WSQs

Plenty of people did bid 20k on 2, but it was a 203xx. Meanwhile the watch today was probably quite cheap, certainly compared to a Rolex it was.

The end result is just 2 survivors, vhs (hard/soft cashing DSW) and myself. As is customary with a low 20k ARP, both were DSWs, as the ARP can't get much lower than that.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Yikes! What a train wreck. SC1 threw me for a curveball, as it did for the rest of us. I figured SC 2 would be cheap, but I didn't know how much. At least I didn't get a WSQ.

Why is it that the best threads come and go in the middle of the night while I'm asleep?

SC2 price reveal

Quote from: Mark Goodson
"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work."

Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

Finally! Cash! Last time the "two survivors" situation happened, I was on the other end (scored but didn't cash).

SC2 was one of those where I put down "don't care" for the last trip. I put down $1000 for the bike, $6500 for the trip. That gives $7500 with a trip to go, which probably isn't more than $12,500. So I put down 20251 plus a little extra to fend off the other low bids. And it worked for once.

I haven't cashed since I walked into $29564 with a bid of $28577 some time ago.
Yes, I still use VHS. But I've switched to recording the show in HD with a capture card.

It turns out I've been missing a lot over the years.
