Although I'm still a relatively new Golden Road.net forums user, I've been lurking around in these forums for a year, and this "Host Your Own" business piqued my interest somewhat.

Even though the rules for qualifying for a "Host Your Own" contest are rather cryptic IMO, I think that after making five posts in other parts of these forums, I now qualify to host my own mock TPIR episode.

So I'm going to host one. Right now. I need at least 15 people to sign up within the next 48 hours (hopefully, that's a reasonable time limit). Why 15? You'll find out later...

You'll have 24 hours to respond to whatever it is I'd need a response from. If you fail to give an answer within 24 hours, you'll be eliminated (and, in the event of a pricing game, replaced by someone else). If, for some reason, you can't be here when it's your turn to bid or play or spin or whatever, you should let me know and I'll decide for myself what will happen.

And I apologize in advance if any part of this TPIR episode sucks or isn't as good as it could be. This IS my first episode! Remember, you were all newbies to this at one point!

Something tells me there's another two-hour special up here!  I'll take #1 and wait in line.

I'm in, but I'm curious to know why your signature has Pathfinder listed as one of your least favorite games.  Enlighten me!

*puts a light bulb on JHC's head*

Anyway, I'm not in. I'm going on vacation soon, and I don't want to be caught up in the middle of a show. However, when I get back (July 10), I'd be glad to play if you need a substitute.

I personally find Pathfinder to be a little too hard to play. I don't hate the game enough to want it retired; really, it was a good game on paper, but in practice, could you imagine the intense pressure on a contestant? With the game's rules, sometimes I feel as if the contestants are stepping on land mines instead of numbers! If you screw up, then screw up in pricing one of the small items, you practically have little room for error!

Of course, the other people on this website are probably smart enough to win Pathfinder without needing any of the smaller prizes!

So, anyway, we have three people and a potential substitute. 38 hours to go!

...So, uh, what's going on here? I only have five people and one substitute, and sign-ups close in eight hours! I have some personal business to attend to tomorrow, so I may have to extend the deadline, but still, what's going on??? Is everyone on vacation or am I being outperformed by a more popular Golden Road.net user?

Sure, I'll play. At least, I think I can. I'm not quite following the rules either but, hey, newbie power! ^^

Well, the deadline's approaching. But seeing as I only have seven people and a substitute signed up, I think I'll extend the deadline to until I get 15 contestants. However long that takes!

Besides, I can't begin the show tomorrow anyway. I have to attend someone's graduation. Then I have to go apply for admission to Virginia Western Community College. And, of course, I can't really be online between 11:00 A.M. and 12:00 noon Eastern Time for what I think are obvious reasons! (Hint: This website is devoted to a game show that comes on during that hour! )

I'm not sure if Alex will be around to host this show anytime soon according to this thread...
