What we're about
Think you'd be great at your favorite TV game show but know your chances of actually getting on one are slim? Longing for something other than all the Meetup groups limited to just card or board games? If you have a love for classic and popular TV game shows this is a chance for you to show your skill and make friends doing it. Smaller, intimate and private settings (like a dinner party) can often lead to closer interaction and focus, and in the process new lasting friends and relations.
We will be trying out different classic game show games using interactive video and computer gaming technology to bring the studio to the living room. We will be running each different game show as a separate tournament with an ongoing score per contestant (each contestant on a team receives the same score independently for their personal record). Eventually we will run concurrent tournaments for different game shows. Your scores per tournament stay with you as long as you are part of the group.
These TV game show nights are unique from other gaming groups as they will be held at private vacation rentals in Central Phoenix, so when we schedule events the space will be limited to a small group of contestants (plus your TV host of course). We are going to try the "honor system" to start things off. If that doesn't work due to low attendance, or if conversely we regularly get more interested than we can accommodate per event, we may switch to a small and temporary RSVP fee, refunded to all those who show up at the door OR who cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
Because we need at least 6 contestants per event but cannot accommodate more than 8 inside at a time, there will be a wait list once we receive the maximum RSVP's. Since we need enough players for teams (the other contestants are counting on you!), and to be considerate of those on the wait list, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT IF YOU RSVP YOU EITHER SHOW UP ON TIME OR UN-RSVP AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE THE START OF THE EVENT. While we're on the honor system, those who withdraw last-minute or fail to show up at all risk being permanently removed from the group.
Please encourage friends to sign up or come to an event. They can also find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/TVGameShowPlayers
