Sunday Nov 10
Monday is a stat holiday so there won’t be any games until Tuesday. Not even JR’s montage will play on Monday (and thank you for that, JR.)
But Monday is 12 hours away so until then, you can still play JR’s Music Montage and you can also try for Black Keys tickets on CFOX. Listen for the cue and identify a Black Keys song to win.
The last JR montage went up to $1950. Everything under the sun was guessed and I spent far too many hours trying to figure out the third song. Thank GAWD someone figured it out! Even after listening to the song, I still don’t hear that clip in it. I’m not very good at this game.
I had no luck last week with QM or Virgin. I was actually caller ONE once and caller 17 another time, but those are the only two times I got through. There are two more weeks to get in on QM’s trip and three more weeks to try for Virgin. If you win one, you can’t win the other according to Bell’s rules.
Rock 101 only gives out big cash during Willy’s play, the other two plays aren’t likely to go past $200. They don’t have Bell’s budget I guess. Still fun to play if you need $100 though!
If you are in the draw for the trip on CFOX, your odds are fantastic! There are a whopping seven people in the draw. Wow. Good luck! It seems people have caught on to this game – only three people chose cash and got $1. One of them deserved it though – “John” just hung up without giving Carmen his name because if he took the dollar he couldn’t play again. What an asshat. There’s no need to be rude to her just because you didn’t win. You know they have call display, right? Maybe get yourself a new number and try not to be such a jerk next time…
The Peak’s Wheel of Tickets appears to be continuing. There are still some great tickets available – Black Keys, The Glorious Sons, etc.
Z95.3 had a smallish plane so they only took 14 people (plus guests, so 28 total) and they did NOT want to party with ME! WTH?! I’m GREAT at a party! Ah, it’s all good. Who needs four days of sunshine and fun when I could stay HERE and bask in the rainshine?! I’m just going to have to work hard and come up with a different way to jet myself to the sun. Does anybody need a Plus One for their next trip? Anyone?? I can’t pay but I travel well and clean up relatively nicely…
The link and password for JR’s montage and the CFOX list are in the newsletter. Also the new Zed post link and password.
JR’s game is going to be a little different this week – you can choose to take a guess at the montage OR you can put your name into a draw for a trip to Mexico. There will be two draws – one on Monday the 18th and one on Monday the 25th. Get into the draw this week because it’s likely there will be less people in the draw, therefore better odds of winning. That said, this new montage sounds tough and the jackpot is low so maybe people will opt for the draw instead of driving up the jackpot with wrong guesses. We’ll see.
The trip is adults-only and you can travel around the blackout dates until October 2020, but direct flights YVR to Cancun only run until April 30, 2020. If you fly after that you will have to pay for your own connecting flights.
Zed’s plane is full but they have an extra $10,000 laying around. They’ll be giving it away but you’ll have to work for it. In fact, dozens of people will have to work for it but only one will get it. There will be 100 trivia questions and you can keep answering until you get one wrong. The next person takes the baton and runs with it until they get one wrong, and so on and so on until someone answers the final, 100th question and wins the jackpot.
They play at 8am, 9am, 10am, 3pm, 4pm, and 5pm. I have no idea how hard the questions will be so it’s hard to predict how long it will take to get to 100. Let’s assume everyone gets at least one question correct – at six plays per day, it would take 100/6=16ish days to get to question 100. 16 weekdays is three weeks. Now let’s assume that some people are smart (or just good at trivia which doesn’t indicate intelligence) and will get four or five correct. Balance that with people who freeze under pressure (also not indicative of intelligence level) and I predict it will take nine days to get to question 100. My guess is they will be asking question 100 on Friday the 22nd, at the 4pm play.
Do you have a prediction of when someone will win $10,000? Let’s play a game: give me your guess and whoever guesses the exact date and time will win. Choose a date between Tuesday, November 12th and Wednesday, December 25th. Those play times again are 8, 9, 10, 3, 4, and 5. One entry per person please. If more than one person has the same guess, I will draw a name and the winner will get a $25 gift card. It can be any kind of card – Subway, Starbucks, whatever comes in $25 cards – or I can etransfer the $25 and you can spend it however you want. Yes, it’s only $25 but it comes from my own pocket and my pockets are VERY shallow. This is just for fun but if I had more money I’d make the prize bigger.
Here’s what you need to do to enter: message me with your guess via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Twitter DM or Facebook DM. Don’t send it on Instagram because I rarely check that.
As they haven’t yet posted the contest rules, I don’t know when the contest ends. If it turns out people are killing it and the questions are being answered too quickly, they can always replace the remaining questions with more difficult ones to drag the contest out. I’m terrible at these trivia games because I get flustered easily, so I’m counting on YOU smarty pants to get us into the final stretch. The problem with these games is if someone gets to question 100 and they get it WRONG, everyone can google the answer and the phone lines will be JAMMED for the final play. They must be following along in order to do that and people have lives, so I’ll be following along FOR you. I’ll start a post where I will update the questions and answers. Why? Because I’m crazy, apparently. Subscribers will have access to that and the password is in the newsletter.
