PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"TAR14 Casino Game - Week 1 Results ..."

Like a Rolling... Cheese!?!?!

</Bob Dylan>

A new season has started an the same old crap happened. The same old opening sequence, an over-abundance of airport moments, and the elimination of a team we wanted to root for.

Oh wait. None of those things happened.

Instead we got rolling cheese, which is infinite times better.

Cheese!

Week 1 Results
1st place - Margie/Luke (2x)
2nd place - Tammy/Victor (1.6x)
3rd place - Mark/Michael (1.4x)
4th place - Mel/Mike (1.2x)
5th place - Amanda/Kris (1.1x)
6th place - Brad/Victoria (even)
7th place - Cara/Jaime (.9x)
8th place - Lakisha/Jennifer (.8x)
9th place - Linda/Steve (.6x)
10th place - Christie/Jodi (.4x)
11th place - Jennifer/Preston (0x)

And Then There Were 43

Overall, Week 1 went pretty smoothly for most players. There was a lot of variation in the scores, but the first week is a huge crapshoot anyway, so it's hard to help it.

Unfortunately, we did have one player bust out of the game, Max Headroom. Y'know, on paper, Jennifer & Preston didn't seem like a bad pick at all, so the last place finish is pretty mystifying. We'll just chalk it up to some sort of voodoo curse or something.

Thanks for playing, Mr. Headroom. Just don't hassle the customers while you drink those complimentary cocktails.

Normally, I'd put in some awards right here but it's Week 1, so there isn't anything to do. Instead, we'll acknowledge the Tammy/Victor Fun Club, consisting of flipxcyd, beau_30, KwietOne, dragonflies, ARNutz, Higgs, and Snidget. Aw, you guys are so cute, clogging up the middle of the leaderboard like that. The TAR Casino Game isn't a team sport, you know.

New Players Still Welcome!

Up until Week 4, the Casino Game will accept new entrants to the game. For a detailed listing of the rules, see the fine print below.

1. Each player in Week 2 starts with 15 points. In every subsequent week, this amount decreases, so join now. Also, these are the only points you get, so don't waste them. Once you run out of points, you're out of the game.

2. Every week, you may choose to wager any or all of your points on the various teams. In previous seasons, there was a cap on the number of points you can wager. In this game, there's no limit. You can wager as many of your points as you want, on as many teams as you want.

Regulations are for the auto industry. We're going No Limit this season, folks.

3. You don't have to bet all your points. Any points you don't wager are banked, and will be carried over to the following week without risk. Don't have a good feeling about this week? Then go conservative. Got a hunch on another? All-In, baby.

4. Decimals are evil. Therefore, all wagers must be a whole number. Also, in scoring your entries, all decimal points will be rounded up. It makes the scoreboard prettier that way. No one wants to see a final score of 693.22463 to 612.1935.

5. Absenteeism sucks. If you miss three straight entries, you're eliminated from the game. If you're going to be on vacation, send me a note and I'll keep the records. I'll even take wagers in advance.

6. All entries must be entered before showtime: Sunday, February 22th, 8 PM Eastern Time. Any entries after that time will not be counted. Any edits to an existing entry after the deadline will be penalized. The clock is based on the clock on this message board.

I may change the deadline if the forums' clock gets all wonky again, like last year.

7. Your wagers will be scored based on the almighty Payout Table. The Payout Table gives a multiplier value to each ranking, and determines the return on your wagers. Each of your individual wagers are multiplied by their appropriate multipliers, and then totaled together.

For example, here's the Payout Table for Week 2.

Week 2 Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.3x
3rd place - 1.2x
4th place - 1.1x
5th place - Break even
6th place - Break even
7th place - .9x
8th place - .8x
9th place - .7x
10th place - 0x

This week's table is all about being #1, baby. 1.3x? Forgettaboutit!

TAR14 Teams Remaining
Amanda/Kris
Brad/Victoria
Cara/Jaime
Christie/Jodi
Lakisha/Jennifer
Linda/Steve
Margie/Luke
Mark/Michael
Mel/Mike
Tammy/Victor

Good luck, everyone!


I've decided to go back to my retro-retro sig again. Haven't seen this one in awhile.
