Third The Dirty Donkey

Attention, regular attendees of Yahtzee's Trivia Night (and non-attendees looking for the excuse to give it a go). We're doing something a little bit weird for this Monday's (the 13th) quiz. As implied by the image below, we're putting a bit of effort into making a really good prize pack, and we're going to give it away to whoever comes third. First and second will still get prize packs, of course, they just won't be as, you know, good.

Why are we doing this? For larks, mainly. Partly it's because I've been keen to experiment with the format lately, partly because while first and second place have a couple of stubborn recurring placements, third place tends to be more of an X-factor. Last time, an all new team won it. Perhaps that will be you, this time?

Oh yes, and just to make this even more of an X-factor, I'm not going to reveal the scores of any teams until the end. You'll only know how well you're doing, and how well whatever the team next to you is doing. That should keep things interesting, shouldn't it.

So come along to the Mana Bar on Monday, June the 13th any time before 7, be you regular or shy experimenting quiz pupae, and bring a team. Or just one other person, but you'd both better be pretty confident with each other's know how. Perhaps a victory could be just what you need to win over your quiz partner into full on mouth kissing, if that's what you've been hanging around them for.

Also: new Show & Tell podcast coming very soon; yes, we remembered to record this one

  4. Hi Yahtzee,,

    My name is Catherine Meyers, I’m the admin of a modest games site and high traffic blog directory, I've been checking your blog and your podcasts and think they are awesome, so I thought you could be interested in a link exchange, (no money involved), with my sites, this might help increase the visits to your blog and get nice comments and feedback. Let me know if you are interested to send you the links to my sites.

    Kind Regards,


  5. Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Cathy! Can I be linked on your site, too? Please? Pretty pleeeeeease?

    I have all of the Anthony Wiener photos, digitally reconstructed into 3D meshes that you can import into your own models (Modo, Maya, Google Sketchup, DXF, and Videoscape 2.0). I'll also have David Vitter meshes up shortly. I'm also working on pre-packaged downloadable player models for Call of Duty 4 and Duke Nukem Forever, but Sony is giving me static and refusing to allow them on PSN. Damned fascists...

    I'm also working on a new Web feature called, "M^HFake Your Own Andrew Breitbart Video," in which you use an innovative Java/Flash hybrid interface to re-edit and intercut news and archival footage of famous world figures with your own snippets and photos to create incriminating "evidence" against your hated enemies. (Having trouble getting it to work in the Lynx browser, though.) Visitors then vote on the best ones that week, and the winner gets credits they can redeem in the Xbox LIVE Game Room.

    Anyway, get back to me as quickly as you can. I can be reached at .

  6. Hmm, Yahtzee you have a strange definition "coming very soon"...
    When's the new podcast coming?

  7. And this is what makes me want to live in Australia... Then again, most gaming communities that are bad-ass make me want to live there... Go figure!
