Help needed in confirming information about a $46,900 pot on Tic Tac Dough[edit]

If anyone has any series of episodes in which on Tic Tac Dough the pot reached $46,900 (give or take a few hundred dollars) as a result of numerous ties that made such a high amount possible, please help confirm the unverified information in the main article.

Fair use rationale for Image:Tic Tac Dough (80s Logo).JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Tic Tac Dough (80s Logo).JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

TTD, FTW?[edit]

I'm curious as to whether it was this game show or Hollywood Squares or neither that first popularized the phrase "for the win" among Internet slang. I used to watch both and my memory is rather fuzzy about terminology used on each show. As tic-tac-toe derivatives, both would involve phrases like "to block", "for the block", and "for the win", but which actually used FTW? I associate the phrase with TTD, but it'd take a real game show scholar to substantiate that claim. Fortunately I know that such scholars exist. Ah, Wikipedia. Asat (talk) 10:05, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Categories:[edit]

Bonus Category let people win without the other player getting a turn, so that player came back. (ISTR Martindale calling this "a blitz.") Were there cases in which a player built up a big advantage from Bonus Category but the other player still got a turn, and so they didn't come back despite having no real chance to win? (Think of getting four X's, but not in a row, before control passes to the challenger.) 98.24.75.26 (talk) 19:04, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

You could win Seesaw by giving the last right answer. Were the number of answers always odd or even? Did this give an advantage to the player who called it or the other player? Was the caller always required to answer first? (I remember one question was "name the states with two words" which had ten answers.) 98.24.75.26 (talk) 19:04, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Announcers in infobox[edit]

There's been the beginning of an edit war over whether Bob Hilton, a substitute, should be included among the announcers listed in the infobox. Does anyone know how many episodes he announced? That might help develop a consensus as to whether he deserves to be there. JTRH (talk) 17:06, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I thought he was a permanent announcer for about a year but if he was a substitute then leave him out. Sottolacqua (talk) 17:33, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I'm trying to find out. JTRH (talk) 17:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Did the Syndicated TTD actually premiere on September 4, 1978?[edit]

I'll let this page from the Toledo Blade speak for itself. https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=8_tS2Vw13FcC&dat=19780905&printsec=frontpage&hl=en--97.93.117.124 (talk) 01:59, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
