This game had 62 correct answers, and a combined coryat of 47,000, but it ended as a Joon Pahk lock, so I don't know that I would call it a good game.

They showed a replay of the Ashook, Ruprecht, Roberts game a couple of months ago, and I pm'd Lee Ann just to tell her how impressive they play of that game was after seeing the episode. It's the only time I've ever done that. The game did stand out.

I would have missed that final.

Patrick Macaraeg/Jennifer Goodwin/Vince Valle

Chris Miller's Round 2 UToC game:

I can't remember which, but one of Mark Dawson's original games had him in a distant 3rd place.

it would have been more exciting with the 63rd correct answer, that being michael's daily double. (also i'd be something like $8000 richer.) i think i negged too much for it to really be considered one of the best-played games ever, but it was a lot of fun to play.
