Vegas Gang Podcast Trivia Contest

Posted by Hunter

Doing the Vegas Gang show is one of my favorite things but even as much fun as it is, I'm constantly coming up with ideas to make it better. Most of these turn out to be way too dumb to share with other humans but I finally have one experiment I want to try.

You, loyal listeners, can send trivia questions to me at this email address. I will pick one or two for the show. If the Gangsters can't answer correctly, I'll give you a $25 certificate. I'll be the screener and judge so I won't be able to give answers on the show.

See, I think the guys are pretty good and I don't think you'll be able to stump them but who knows... Only real rule is that the questions have to be reasonable - don't ask how many tiles are on the floor in the Forum Shops for instance. Keep them focused on history, tourism and gaming and in the spirit of good fun.

I'm hoping this will be a regular thing - we'll see how it goes.

Sounds fun. I'll give it some thought.

You sir, are the Devil. Like I don't waste most of my life dreaming about Las Vegas already. Now I have a chance to secure a major award that would make me more trivial than the Vegas Gang! Wait, did I say that right?

Do we send you the answer to the trivia as well?

I'll be researching answers but sure, if you have it, send it along as well.

Do we have to give our answers in the form of a question?

Oh, fun! I can't wait to play "Stump the Tourists!" Hmmm, I'll have to think up some good questions, perhaps on when construction on the 215 began or which neighborhood is the highest elevated community in Greater Las Vegas. Hehe, it will be worth it just to see how many tourists I can stump! :-D

Isn't this about trying to stump the VegasGang members? Dr. Dave & Editor Simpson live in Las Vegas, I think, so I don't think this is about stumping tourists. Am I confused, Hunter?

You're right Jeff. Only Chuck and I are 'tourists' and I'm excluded as moderator.

Dr Schwartz is basically a walking encyclopaedia; and Hunter can spot MGM-Mirage executives from a distance of sixty feet that I'd think were businessmen here for convention if I was standing right next to them.

This is kind of an unfair proposition, unless the question was "guess which chefs would have restaurants in mike_ch's dream casino."

Well... you guys aren't putting up anything. If you win, you get a gift certificate. If you lose, I guess you wasted some time but that's it.

Whoops! I guess I didn't read this closely enough. My bad. I guess I'll have to work EXTRA hard then in trying to stump you.

Btw, Hunter, do you also need the answers from us?

If you have the answer, feel free to include it.
