Match Game for the Holidays
 
Since I don't have to go to work due to the snowstorm (or what passes for one in Iowa; a foot of snow is a warm summer day in Upstate NY), and since it's been a while since I've done one, I'm happy to say...

Welcome to another edition of MATCH GAME! This edition's theme: The Holidays!

Not sure how the game works? Here are the rules:

1. I enlist six snopesters to act as Panelists for the contest. This position is unpaid; however, bribery is encouraged.
2. I will PM the Panelists a copy of the five questions for this series. The Panelists will PM me their answers, hopefully before the end of the first round. (hint hint)
3. I will post one round of questions at a time, beginning on Thursdays and Mondays. This gives you three days to answer, or four days for you weekday snopesters who are playing Match Game on your employers' dime.
4. Contestants post their answers in this thread; for each Panelist answer they match, they receive one point.
5. Except in the fifth round, that is; that round is worth a random amount between 2 and 5 points. Contestants must have participated (not necessarily scored) in the first four rounds to qualify for the bonus amount.
6. Answers that require determination will be given to my flatmate for final verdict, and he's a lot more generous than my wife was.
7. In case of tornado: southwest corner of cellar.
8. Winners will be determined by the amount of points awarded, obviously.

This series' prize package includes:
An official Mayan 2013 calendar!
A solid gold coin commemorating the selection of Susan Rice as Secretary of State!
One thousand shares of Omni Consumer Products, Inc!
(notice: Employees, moderators, owners, members and anyone who has ever heard of snopes.com are ineligible for prize package)

So with that said, who would like to volunteer to be a Panelist?

If I am a panelist, will I be allowed to use my power for ill and not good?

With great power comes great opportunity.

Roadie 20 December 2012 06:19 PM

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. And to be a panelist, please!

Excellent, if by "fair" you mean you'll accept bribes in any major currency.

Not only is it allowed, it's mandatory!

As long as your answers also feature an adorable lisp.

You'll shoot your eye out, kid. But that's just more reason to have you onboard.

We have four, only two openings remain.

I'll bang my hand up as your sole "over-the-seas" representative, but I'm not fussed coz I do like playing. :)

Darth Credence 20 December 2012 08:15 PM

Yay! Match Game is back! I was considering saying in LTTAY that there hadn't been a Match Game in almost a year.

And here I thought I'd have to photoshop in an Australian on our promotional material! You're in, too!

Questions will be mailed shortly, and our first round begins Monday morning Central Time. In the meantime, talk amoungst yourselves.

I will panel if I can play Richard Dawson.

MapleLeaf 23 December 2012 08:37 PM

Always a panelist, rarely a player. So this should be new and exciting :P

Mateus 24 December 2012 06:26 PM

Alright, let's get this Ugly Sweater party started! First, let's introduce our panelists:

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a rangerdog in a pear tree!

Second, you can say there's no such thing as GenYus234, but as for me and Grandpa, we believe!

Third, the Batmobile lost a wheel, and the Roadie got away!

Fourth, Feliz Navidad, Prospero aņo y Minstrel!

Fifth, I saw Seaboe Muffinchucker kissing Santa Claus!

And last but not least, in the meadow we can build a snowman, and pretend that he is SatansHobbit!

And now the first round question:

***I think that Santa hasn't been keeping up with the modern technology. I asked him for something that will let me keep in touch with my family, and he left a (BLANK) under my tree.***

Good Luck, and have your answers in by my lunch break on Thursday!

Have you seen our weather forecast?

He'd be a molten pool of VB before you knew it.
