It's time to laugh your blanking head off, as Match Game returns to its roots on HKC Radio. Join Nick Giannak of the Digital Domain and friends on Saturday September 4 (Labor Day Weekend) at 1 PM EDT for hours of fun. One contestant will walk away with their choice of five great tech prizes!
Match Game is a rather simple game involving senses of humor and fill in the blank type questions. Each contestant is asked a question with a blank to fill. The contestant thinks of an answer that might match what the panelists might say. For example, “the baby ate the fish blank.” The panelists write their answers. Once finished, Nick calls on each person, one at a time, to reveal their answers, starting with the contestant. In this example, if the contestant said “fish tank”, he or she would match with the panelists who said “fish tank”, but not the panelists who said “fish tale” or any other answer. At the end of the game, the contestant with the most matches wins. If the game is tied, as many rounds of super-match are played as needed, in which questions are asked as completions of a shorter phrase rather than a longform sentence. E.G. “Long Island blank.” Super-Match style questions are also used if a contestant's answer and a panelist's answer are ambiguous and a match cannot be determined. When this happens, it's called match-off.
