One showed up on my DVR today. These aren't new, are they? Hard to believe Ken would still be involved.

Not new at those air times. People Puzzler starts a new season today and America Says is still showing new eps.

Yeah, I've got a whole bunch of them scheduled the next week or so. Not sure why.

Careful Master Minds. The ice cream cone was the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis.

Returning champion now stands on the right podium rather than the left.

0/6 for “Queen of the Night”. Dagger.

Matt revealed on the show he won $250k on WWTBAM in the Regis era.

ETA: Matt Marcotte from 1999. Knew he looked familiar.

Remind me of Matt if he ever gets on J! since we know of at least two lines to give him for his game show rap sheet.

All I had was Kenneth on the Elton John Q, but knew the Egyptian and woodwind that went 1/2 on the show.

Mark was intimidating enough on The Chase while seated. Standing up he looks ginormous.

I've met Jonathan, and he's a big fella. The Beast is a lot bigger than him.

Matt was really sharp. Unfortunate break for him not collecting the additional $10k. While he was very good, he wasn't exactly charismatic. Which makes me wonder how they deal with that if someone becomes a Master Mind.

Plus reducing the final round to 4 questions. I wonder what their intent was with that? Make it easier to win or harder to win?

I dislike this show. Unliked the recently maligned Jeopardy the questions are too cute and there aren’t many of them. “And such small portions…”

I can't disagree. It's the TV equivalent of a trifle. And eliminate the fluff, it can be knocked off pretty quickly.

Looks like it is time for OtriviaNewtonJon to follow suit with Rafferty Barnes and set his profile pic.

Sonnets from the Portuguese was a disappointing miss from Muffy.

No thanks, Im just a lurker, i take the “Fun” part of “Fun with Master Minds” literally. It’s more pure and simple to enjoy the discourse passively. No pics, (almost) no posts, no hugging, no learning. Love y’all though
