Thanks guys! I'm hoping some of the other contestants from today's taping might also be board lurkers ... we had a great bunch of players.

Good retro (or continued, if you're still taping) luck!

Hey Bigbor!

I agree. Our group was great. It's a little sad that we only get a few hours to hang out before it all goes down.

I've been waiting until after the taping to register. I thought about asking other contestants if they had posted here or if they knew about j-archive, but I was worried about inadvertently giving opponents information about me that they could possibly use against me. (For example, would a player that knew I studied j-archive betting strategies be more likely to use shortegy against me?)

Anyway, I can't wait to talk about our experiences after our air dates. (My date is October 26.)

ryan, congrats, welcome, and best of retroactive luck. i also joined after my taping, but in my case it was for the prosaic reason that i didn't know about this board until one of the other contestants told me. (hi, suze!)

Add me to the list as well -- I taped at the end of August for an October 12 air date. I've been lurking on the boards for a while, but haven't quite gotten the gumption to register until now. Thank insomnia for that. I lurked occasionally on the Sony boards, too, but fairly infrequently.

I think we should do it like last season's thread and have NJCondon edit in the appearances in the first post. :)

Perhaps not the "right" place to ask this, but... I notice there weren't any Winner's Circle videos for last week's games. Are they not doing them this season?

I'll certianly be paying closer than usual attention to the intros during your game(s). ;)


Retro good luck and all that sort of thing tomorrow.

As the contestant who told Suze about her bedroom eyes, I stand behind that statement! Her on-screen personality was absolutely adorable. I'm a fan.

Okay, I've acquiesced and edited the list into the first post. I'd like to post the names people played with; I already know the real names of jbillygirl, Suze, and jpahk, but if the rest of you could post your on-camera names, I'll list them all. Thanks!

Yay... much better!

Although he hasn't posted it... I'll take a shot in the dark and say that Serge = Sergio Llorian. ;)

With the different fonts on this message board, I just read the title of this thread as "Boar dies on the show".

I shook my Magic 8-Ball and the answer came up: "Outlook not so good." (no, they aren't doing them anymore, at least for regular games.)
