Stool Pigeon: The Results

By | June 14, 2018

Well we got SIX bits of information, the veracity of which we can’t prove, the only people who know the truth are the stool pigeons themselves.

So see what you make of these:

  • During Hive Minds test recordings, the software broke down because I got frustrated about not being able to find any answers and decided to just enter the whole grid as one word. Fiona Bruce was mildly amused.
  • When I was on Countdown, Dictionary Corner guest Gloria Hunniford came up to me outside my dressing room and asked me if I like having my nipples pulled during sex.
  • CJ de Mooi will be making his TV comeback as a boffin on the upcoming Game of Your Life.
  • I have nothing to contribute but I would love to know what has happened to all of the 15 to 1 episodes recorded late last year!
  • The thing Endemol are filming right now is something where the contestant is in the middle of a large, virtual reality spinning wheel.
  • “I miss call and response catchphrases. They should bring them back.” You do make the rules!

Plenty to chew on there. The Endemol thing, The Moneydrome, does sound a bit like Beat the Wheel that’s been going about, but I still can’t help but feel if it was that the promo would mention Endemol somewhere. Meanwhile it sounds like Game of Your Life might be quite a bit quizzier than expected if the rumour turns out to be true. No idea about 15 to 1.

Quite fun, we’ll probably do this again sometime.

Stool Pigeon, ha cha cha cha

We haven’t done this for years but I’m both a) busy and b) bored. What’s some hot gameshow gossip you don’t want your name attached to? Just be aware you aren’t *quite* anonymous so try not to be libellous. We’ll print the best ones later, if we get any.

This is now closed.

Quiz Run-through Contestants Needed

By | June 12, 2018

Take it away:

One the country’s top production companies is developing a new type of quiz show where personality counts as much as pure brainpower.

We’re seeking Greater London-region contestants for two different quiz run-throughs to take place in our West London offices on Tuesday 19th June from 2–6pm.

Reasonable travel and subsistence expenses will be paid.

If you’re interested in helping out, please email contestants@ukgameshows.com with your name, age, address and contact details for further information.

Go for it!

It’s Bother’s Bar’s Game Night 10 next Saturday and I’m looking for panellists

By | June 10, 2018

It’s the first one we’ve done since Christmas but Bother’s Bar’s Game Night 10 is happening next Saturday – 9pm until around 11:30pm UK, and I’m looking for seven people to join the panel to play and react to the usual Jackbox Games suite all wrapped up in an arbitrary metagame that will determine who is the CHAMPION OF THE NIGHT, and wins a guaranteed invitation to the BBGN immediately after Jackbox 5 comes out. Will the live viewers Team Audience beat the panel this time?

You will need:

  • A second screen to play along with. You will need your big monitor for the Google Hangout to watch the 5 FPS action.
  • A microphone. A camera is not necessary.
  • A Twitter account so I can relay messages.
  • You’ll need to be free next Saturday night between 8:50pm UK and midnight (in case of overrun).

Specifically I would like a mix of old and new panellists, you should definitely apply if any of these apply to you:

  • Have watched in the past and think it might be fun. Haven’t watched? Here’s a playlist. The later ones are better, obviously.
  • Are female! We struggle to get female representation and there’s no reason for that other than I don’t get any to consider.

Please don’t be offended if you don’t get chosen, I only have room for so many, and I’d love for you to watch, comment and playalong as part of Team Audience. One of you might get asked to come on and play the Arbitrary Endgame, I haven’t decided yet.

If you’re interested you need to let me know, leave a comment or message me on Twitter – direct is probably easier otherwise I risk forgetting you applied. Otherwise get your phones ready, alwright? Goodnight!
