TPiRecap: 24 November 2014

Okay, folks, here's the deal. It's Thanksgiving week here in the States, which means there are only three first-run shows as per usual. Thursday is our annual pre-emption for holiday parades and suchlike, and Friday is a repeat while nearly everyone's engaging in gladitorial combat at the local mall over this or that insane discount. Next week, however, we're up to the rest of the tapings that had to be cancelled because of Drew's neck procedure, the same batch that would have contained this year's Halloween special. Only the Monday show next week is new; the rest are repeats from earlier this season. (After that, however, we're good to go until Christmas.)

So, here's how it's gonna go down. Because there's only three shows this week and one next, I'm going to go ahead and group them together (for record-keeping purposes) as a single week of four episodes. Thus, there won't be the usual stats post at the end of this week; that will come on Monday, following that episode. And while I can't promise anything, I do have a few more Kennedy and Davidson syndies at my disposal that I could do some retro recaps for during the "off week," so perhaps—if I get the chance—you'll see one or two of those.

So that's our game plan for the next two weeks around here. And so to today's doings, because hey, this train ain't gonna wreck itself...

TPiRecap: 20 November 2014

Sorry about yesterday. Migraines suck.

You missed a 2-for-6 day with Triple Play's first appearance (and loss) of the season, and with that all 74 Pricing Games in the current rotation have been accounted for in Season 43. Oh yeah, and Trips was played third for I believe the first time ever.  (According to tpirsummaries, it was actually played last on one show, so this wasn't the first time it showed up anywhere other than the leadoff position.)  Other than that, not much went on to speak of. And so to today...

Odd to see two single-prize Turntable games back-to-back like this...
Not this again! Thankfully, Drew doesn't let him get away with that.
Better. (Seriously, that's two playings in a row where someone's tried that.)
Still, all's well that ends well!

Off we go to my drawing program for the second time today...
$7,712 seems to make the most sense to me, but $6,712 might work too.

So there we go. We're prevented from a perfect show only by Lady Luck sneezing during Let 'em Roll—and even there the player still ended up with three thousand bucks, so it wasn't a total loss either. All in all, a very good day at the races!
