Where is Magic#?
« on: May 10, 2022, 10:58:15 PM »
It has only been played two times this season.  I wonder if it's getting a makeover.  They may as well wait until after the season is over at this rate.

Jury duty.
Torgo has left the building. John and I never really cared for the way he presented himself.

Didn't you hear? It was left out in the rain with Penny Ante. The version of Magic # we've seen since 2002 is merely a hologram which broke last November. That's why we haven't seen Magic since.

I really feel I should have heard about this, but where did we hear that information?

Somehow, I was afraid you might have jinxed something when you posted that (assuming she doesn't pass away during the next several weeks.), and sadly, I'm afraid you did.

I want you to be aware that if you ever say anything this stupid again, I'm banning you.

You know, this isn't offensive like the Betty White remark, but it's close enough.

Doesnít the game still have the original computer and takes forever to boot / still canít be played 1st?  Iím honestly surprised it hasnít been upgraded yet for that reasonÖthatís almost unacceptable in todayís world.

Maybe that computer actually died and the staff is debating whether to replace it or just retire it.

Maybe it's taking a sabbatical to reset itself with the contestants.  It had been plagued with the worst case of forced-win setups that somehow were lost or nearly lost.

In Season 42, magic # was played only 3 times, per Scorpzís site. There was a gap of 27 weeks between its 1st and 2nd playing, 3 weeks longer than its absence this season.

Doesnít the game still have the original computer and takes forever to boot / still canít be played 1st?

It likely did as of Season 44. I attended a taping at which magic # was played third and there was a 20+ minute stop tape between the IUFB and the game reveal. Later that episode, Card Gameís monitor was not initially working, but was fixed in under 5 minutes and the game reveal was re-shot.
