DVDTalk Amazing Race 17 Game

Introducing the first DVDTalk Amazing Race Game!
(Because us gamblers on the board can’t get enough…)



Here are the rules that we’ve been using for these games as they seem to be most fair to everyone and not based on the speed of your Internet connection:
  • PM JuryDuty with your top 11 picks in order of preference.
  • Once I confirm your picks have been received, PayPal $2.25 to the address I send you. Please use the “personal gift” option to avoid fees.
  • Your spot will NOT be locked in until I receive BOTH your picks and payment.
  • On Saturday at 8pm EST (or when all teams are taken, whichever comes first), everyone’s picks will be randomly shuffled and everyone will get their top pick that hasn’t already been claimed. Hopefully you get someone you like, but if not, that’s the breaks and they may go far anyway. Historically in these games, we’ve found that it’s VERY hard to predict who will make it far in the game, let alone win, so don’t sweat it.
  • If any teams are left unchosen come Saturday at 8pm EST, current players have the option to buy a second team on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • If any teams are left unchosen by Sunday at 8pm EST (show premiere), they will REMAIN unchosen throughout the season. If an unchosen team wins, the player with the closest team to winning wins the money.
  • If you pick the winner, you get a $22.50 Amazon gift certificate! (Was $25, but one spot was left untaken.)

Picks and payment received (locked in):
  1. JuryDuty
  2. Damfino
  3. Navinabob
  4. Sauce07
  5. chowderhead
  6. outcastja
  7. Groucho
  8. JasonF
  9. Patman
  10. Wolf359

Re: DVDTalk Amazing Race 17 Game

Just a heads-up that I'm still waiting for Wolf359 and BadlyDrawnBoy to respond. If I don't hear from them by tomorrow afternoon, I'll open their spots for anyone else on the forum who might want in.

Payment sent. Hopefully this pick works out better than Survivor. She is a kook!

Re: DVDTalk Amazing Race 17 Game

Thanks, Wolf359--received!

Anyone seen BadlyDrawnBoy around? He expressed interest, but I can't get hold of him. If I don't hear from him by Saturday at noon EST, I'll open his spot to another player.

If one more person is still wanting in, feel free to get in line. :P

OK, we have ONE SPOT AVAILABLE in the DVDTalk Amazing Race game! Teams will be picked this evening, so if you still want to get in, now's your last chance!

Re: DVDTalk Amazing Race 17 Game

Hey all,

Time's up and the picks are in! After a random shuffle, I was actually surprised to see that SIX people got their #1 pick. Unfortunately, the other four got their 4th-7th picks. But if you've played any of these games before, you know that at this point it's all a gamble anyway--so your team may do good even if they weren't your first choice!

Here's the selections (refresh if you don't see the updated game board):



I was actually surprised Andie and Jenna didn't get picked. If someone would still like them before the show airs, let me know and you can get in for $2.25. This includes current players if someone wants a second pick.

Good luck! Let the games begin!

Woo hoo! Got the blonde volleyball hotties! (So I probably flushed $2.25 down the drain, but at least they look rootable).

Re: DVDTalk Amazing Race 17 Game

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that the team with two women who barely know each other wasn't picked.

Still, I think they'll do better than the a capella guys. Those guys are doomed once they realize they can't sing their way out of any of the challenges.
