First Run TPIR! / Re: TPiR Recap - 4/24/2015
« Last post by GuyWithFace on Today at 01:10:48 AM »
Despite being billed as a "budget mode" show by some, keep in mind we've still haven't had any pricing game prices below $5,000 nor any sub-$20,000 showcase. This was still standard, if in the lower end IMO.
I suspect $20,000-level Showcases are the new budget mode level. Even then, a trip to Los Angeles/Hollywood, where the show tapes? That, I believe, would be a good sign of budget mode.

This said, I am quite curious to see the breakdown of each prize. The "strange" additions to each trip (the private street-art tour in #1, the F-16 Falcon simulator training session in #2) are probably how they were both over $20,000, and were probably only there so the Showcases did not look too cheap.

Later? How about we just do it now.  ;)

Today was pretty much the Twilight Zone. None of the three players we normally expect on the podiums (Kev, Vader, and Punchboard) made the top three, with Punchy coming the closest at fourth place. Torgo, normally another strong player, joined Pikachu, GRV, and Gavazzi on the bagel bus. A player who had yet to win this season took the top spot for the first time. Dogs and cats living together, total mass hysteria... you get the idea.

The first half was a chain of keys, as we had three games with three picks each. Coupon Boy, Shatter, and Tanzerey got $15,000 each for Any Number leading off. Coupon Boy (again), Unique, and Cephas then got the same amount for Freeze Frame. Finally, PriceFan, Kev, and Tris took fifteen grand apiece for the Race Game.

Thankfully, the second half featured a little bit more scoring to bring things into a more respectable range, but five players (myself included) still ended up going bust on ALL-IN calls. PriceFan picked the last four games of the day correctly to get up to 7/27 and the bronze medal, while Tris was the week's runner-up at 7/37. But as already alluded to, UniquePerspective gets his first win of the season with four correct games and a score of 9/30.

Here we have the full results table for the week. For those who saw the draft that was posted in chat following the show, the cash amounts have changed a bit, as I had previously forgotten to double Friday's money in the pot. Our next game takes place on May Day - don't forget to turn the calendar as you turn in your next set of picks!

Jess, I assure you that my opinion of the OP is the same as it's ever been. :P

Guint, she was a part of a lot of people's childhoods in both Canada and the US.  She might not have been an A-lister but folks in my age range definitely remember her fondly along with Sharon and Bram.  You're probably too young to remember who she was and that's fine.  If you don't like obituary threads, that's also fine but please be a bit more considerate to those who actually do care about the person of interest and express your distaste elsewhere.

Not taking a stance here, but there's the rather amusing deal here that you're agreeing with this particular OP, given your history. Granted, you have good reason to, but I still found it personally amusing.

But at the same time, the Stage Player beat the majority on a Friday. I think that counts against us.
