    Very important card here; $10,000 on the line. Candace, let's see the card.









    (she peeks at the card)






    (turns around the card...)



    Candace, excitedly: IT'S A JACK!

    And that's Blackjack; $10,000 and the round!

    *CLANGS, WHOOPS, BELLS, ETC.*

    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [ROUND 1][-------]
    [--21---][--12---]
    [$10,300][---$100]

    And that is how you start a new show, ladies and gentlemen. We'll take a quick break before round 2; stick around!


    ---------------

    (commercials)

    ---------------


    (fade up)

    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [ROUND 1][-------]
    [---0---][---0---]
    [$10,300][---$100]
    Welcome back to our inaugural edition of Gambit. As it stands right now, Curious won Round 1, winning $10,300 in the process. Armando has $100, but there's a chance to come back now.

    ANY 21 WINS
    $3,000
    BLACKJACK BONUS
    $10,000

    *DING*

    Since Curious won the blackjack bonus just a minute ago, that stays at $10,000. We'll throw $500 into the 21 pot to start this round. And with that, we'll begin Round 2, where with any luck, someone will get a question right. Let's see the first card...




    Candace: It's an 8.

    Middle of the road card; I'd say it's a bad card, but that's a very different TV card game. First question of the round...

    Ed Koch, Joseph Wapner, or Judith Guest; Who was the first judge on "The People's Court"?

    ^How the **** should I know? Jesus Christ man, I'm a Brit, ask me a TV question concerning British stuff or well known American stuff, not whatever the **** People's Court is? Goddamn, I'm going to randomly answer, but it ain't gonna be right.

    BUZZCODE: 90

    1st: Armando (81)
    2nd: Curious (32)

    [BUZZ]

    Armando?

    Judy whatsherface.

    (yes, I am quoting the PMs verbatim)

    No! The answer was Joseph Wapner; 12 years presiding over the court. Curious, you get another $100 and you have the option. Do you want to keep or pass that 8?

    Calm down dude, you win some, you lose some.

    I don't think an 8 is all that great, so I'm passing it to Armando.

    Not taking any risks with the card; it goes to Armando, who no longer has a chance at the Blackjack Bonus. Next question...

    Cuba, Japan, or the United States; Which country took first place in Olympic baseball in 1992 and 1996?

    Armando?

    Japan.

    (to producer) Make a note of this show.

    (audience laughter)

    This actually is a bit surprising; it's Cuba. Curious, you've got the option yet again. Do you want to keep the card or pass it?

    Well I'm sorry if you continually ask questions only the Yanks can answer.

    Now I'm feeling terrible because I am only winning because he doesn't know them. And few of these are 'Yank' questions Armando, no need to be sore.

    I'll keep the card.

    Let's see it, Candace!




    Candace: It's a five.

    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [ROUND 1][-------]
    [---5---][---8---]
    [$10,500][---$100]

    The Blackjack Bonus is entirely out of play for this round. There's still a chance at the 21 Pot, though. Next question...

    A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities, or Oliver Twist; The phrase "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" begins which Dickens book?

    ^ You never answer any of the damn questions though, at least answer one, it's me failing and you reaping the rewards then I give up then Doctor comes poking round my VM profile badgering me why I'm not playing a game which I earnestly forgot.

    Fine, you want to know my answers? Not sure if I'm supposed to be telling you, but I've pretty much always given the same answer as you. That is why I felt bad, because luck is the one deciding for you to fail.

    Oh OK, so we both don't know the answers, that's cool. I thought you knew everything but I was just failing.

    Armando?

    A Tale of Two Cities


    And our studiowide nightmare is over!

    (applause continues for 15 seconds)

    Armando, you pick up $100 for that, and you get to decide what to do with the incoming card.

    Keeping the card, alright then. Let's see it.



    Candace: It's a 10.

    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [ROUND 1][-------]
    [---5---][--18---]
    [$10,500][---$200]
    And that puts you in an interesting position. Keep in mind that if you freeze now, Curious must keep answering questions to get cards; one misstep, the round's yours. You need 3 for 21, anything over that will bust you. Do you want to freeze?

    You're frozen now on your 18. Curious, it falls to you now. We'll keep asking the questions, you'll try to answer them (on the thread now). Get right answers, we'll keep giving you cards until you either beat 18 or bust. One wrong answer, and Armando wins the round. With that said, here's the first of those questions...


    A prison in California, a rock 'n' roll magazine, or a worldwide rock ‘n' roll café; The “Hard Rock” is a what?

    destroyer39, this isn't my position, but as a GM myself I know it is annoying. That is SPAM since you are not in the round, so please stop.

    Anyways, the answer is a Worldwide Rock 'n' Roll Cafe.

    That's correct!


    (Destroyer, this is your warning. Unless you're playing, DO NOT POST in this thread.)

    Curious, this card is automatically yours. Let's see it!



    Candace: It's a nine.

    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [ROUND 1][FREEZE-]
    [--14---][--18---]
    [$10,600][---$200]

    Getting risky here. You need a five or more to win the round; there are no ties in Gambit. Next question...


    Jack Benny, Dick Clark, or Johnny Carson; Who was the famous host of long running TV shows American Bandstand and Pyramid?

    That's right! Now we get serious. You're looking for at least a five to become the champ. If this is a seven, the 21 Pot is yours. Let's take a look.






















    Candace: It's a three.

    Well, this just got interesting. You need a two, three or four for the win. Question coming...


    Ronde, Rotula, or Rotunda; Which word is defined as "a round room"?
