A Very Unique Half Hour Price is Right: Episode 2
« on: June 18, 2010, 03:56:46 PM »
...oh....hi. You may be wondering where I've been the past 16 months or so in terms of HYO. Well...Announcer Dude had to deal with a major Dude Health Concern, I had to fire Jeff and hire Jim as my new sign maker, and I need to get a new microphone.

Anyway. Welcome to the second ever episode of my Host Your Own Series. This will be a traditional half hour formats, 3 pricing games, top two overall winners will go to the showcases. Das Rules:

1. You will have a 24 hour time limit on all deadlines. This includes bids, guesses on pricing games, etc. I will let you know when you first enter the game through PM. Otherwise, you are responsible for keeping track of where you are in the game. If I personally am late on the 24 hour rule, you have the grace period until I post that time is up.
2. Audience advice is suggested and encouraged, except for the IUFB's.
3. If for whatever reason you need to leave the computer for a long period of time, PM me and we'll discuss what to do based on your current place in the game.
4. To sign up, simply say below that you wish to play. Remember, because of half hour, only six contestants will get to play. I will take sign ups until Saturday, June 19th at 4 PM EST, or 10 people signing up, whichever comes first. Selection is entirely random.

That being said, sign up and have some fun.
Yeah...let's make this current shall we?

...yeah, I just fired Jeff myself. Note to future HYO hosts: Do not let Jeff build your sets!

I'm in.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I find it ironic how the show tries to mix up the prizes and offer "cool" things like over-stuffed trips and impossible to price items to make the show less "predictable." Yet, the same things happen every single time a show airs.
