OK, I got this idea from James Greek. It's the same High Rollers as before, but with a few big differences:
* The prizes will be much bigger. * Each game offers a minimum of $5,000 cash if prizes are not won. * The biggest change will be in the Big Numbers.
1st BN: $250,000 (or $10K a number) 2nd BN: $500,000 (or $25K a number) 3rd BN: $750,000 (or $50K a number) 4th BN: $1,000,000 (or $100K a number) 5th BN: $2,500,000 (or $200K a number)
As you can see, if you win your first game, you get $10,000 for each number you knock off or $250,000 for knocking out all nine in the Big Numbers. The numbers keep growing the more games you win. However, there's a catch: Every time you decide to play a new game, your bonus winnings are at risk. Whatever you win in the main game is yours to keep, but your bonus winnings are at risk. You can leave after each Big Numbers, or go on and face another challenger. Should you lose a match, you lose your bonus winnings.
Now, we're looking for at least three players (two to start and then a growing list of potential challengers). Our timing will be a lot better than most network primetime games.
Greg: Thank you very much, Dean Goss. Thank you, everyone. WHOO! What a crowd we've got tonight. Not an empty seat in the house.

Thank you very much, and welcome to the network return of High Rollers. Skill, strategy, sabotage, and these unpredictable dice are the elements we have for you as our contestants compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes we'll put on our board. And, depending on how far they go and how much they're willing to risk, one roll of the Golden Dice could be worth as much as two-point-five million dollars! (audience cheers)
Now, before we meet our first two players, we want to pay some respect to the man who started it all: Alex Trebek.
Alex was the original "Man with All the Action", and hosted this show for four years. Yes, the guy who hosted Jeopardy! was once a wild and crazy guy, but a class act all the way. He died late last year, and so, we want to dedicate the entire series and any other future iterations to him. (audience cheers) His widow and children are present. (shot of the Trebek family, back to Greg)
Now, let's meet our first two players. First off, we have James Greek. Hiya, James. Tell us about yourself, please.
And over here is Vahan Nisanian. Now, someone on our staff wrote on this card to pronounce it as "Va-hahn Nee-sann-ian". Is that correct? If not, please correct me, and in any case, tell us about yourself.
Well, that's good to know, but we don't know anything else about you. I mean, you don't have to come up with a sob story like you might on some other show on this network, but we do want to know something about you.
Like I said in the other thread, I came to California from Yerevan, Armenia when I was about eight months old. My family wanted to start a new life. I remember High Rollers on USA Network, and now, here I am, playing a GSP community version. I also remember playing the online flash game.
I remember that, too. Seldom won it, but it was fun. Good luck to you. Give them a nice hand! (audience cheers)
Now, here's the way our game is played. I know a number of you High Rollers fans know this already, but there are some who are just tuning in. You're going to be using these dice to play our game. I'll ask a question. If you buzz in and you're right, you get control of the dice. Buzz in and you're wrong, your opponent gets the dice. You'll roll the dice and try to knock out numbers on our board. We've got the board in three columns, and when you clear a column, we'll put the prize or prizes in that column on your side of the board. If you clear the board, or your opponent cannot clear any numbers off the board, then you win the game and whatever prizes you have earned. Now, if you don't have any prizes on your side and you win the game, we'll give you a house minimum of $5,000 in cash. (audience oooohs) The first player to win two games wins the match and goes on to play the Big Numbers, which we're starting off at $250,000! (audience oooohs even louder) And of course, don't forget, that if you roll a double... (I hold up an Insurance Marker) This will get you out of trouble. It's an Insurance Marker that gives you a free roll. Of course, if you roll three consecutive doubles without clearing a number, you automatically lose the game. Now, does anyone have any questions?
Mandoli: PSA to any potential newcomers: If you make an account, please be patient. We're manually approving accounts. Do not make a second account, because #2 won't be approved.

Mandoli: If I'm supposed to get a third shot, then let me have it at the first chance I'm allowed to get it.
Aug 28, 2021 8:39:30 GMT -5
gameshowmaniac: now of course the "powers that be" are suggesting a 3rd shot.
Aug 19, 2021 21:48:59 GMT -5
Mandoli: Please don't duplicate threads or put something that's already in an AP thread in its own thread. Thank you.

dare2be: Just saw this latest discussion. My wife and son both had 2 days of fever of about 100 and body aches/fatigue on 2nd shot. I just had a little fatigue (felt like a cement mannequin), but no fever. Moderna back in April/May

wildjackmonroe: It's funny; I did all of this major house cleaning and stuff for the week early, expecting I'd be out of it for a couple days after my second vaccine shot, but I didn't have anything else but a sore arm like the first time.
Jul 24, 2021 19:49:52 GMT -5
gameshowmaniac: @mandoli someone I know had pain in the opposite arm that was jabbed. weird

gameshowmaniac: well the dating game killer has finally passed

rewindium: Sore arm and some fatigue but nothing like a fever or other major effects and didn’t have to take any pain relief. Glad to be added to the second dose statistic which today is 62% for my province
Jul 24, 2021 15:07:47 GMT -5
Mandoli: On another note, you might not. My brother didn't have any side effects of shot #2.
Jul 24, 2021 11:32:18 GMT -5
Mandoli: You'll feel it later, like this morning. I had a fever and slept in the day after my second. I begged work to not schedule me for the day after, knowing I wouldn't feel good.
Jul 24, 2021 10:59:23 GMT -5
rewindium: Got the second dose at a mass clinic earlier today, no side effects
