Hello and Happy New Year for 2024!

Whatever kind of year you’ve had in 2023, I sincerely hope that 2024 will be a case of ‘onward and upward’, and that the next twelve months have loads of great stuff in store for you!

Looking back on the last twelve months, I must confess it’s been a slightly patchy year over here at HTWGS HQ. I’m afraid my game show-related posts here turned out to be few and far between, as various other projects vied for my attention…

Still, if you happened to get anything out of my tribute to Sale of the Century legend Cary Young, or my interview with, or my comprehensive and far-ranging with Quiz Champion and Jeopardy! contestant Yogesh Raut… then I’ll take that as a win!

Looking ahead to next year here at the blog, I’m excited to share with you an upcoming game show adventure that I’ve already embarked upon. I can’t say too much at this stage, but I’m currently busily studying and doing my homework… so I’ll be revealing more on that front, just as soon as it’s appropriate to do so. It promises to be great fun, and worth ‘coming out of retirement’ for!

Also at in 2024, I’m keen to get some more guest posts happening. Would you like to write one? Do you have a game show-related story to tell? Something you’d like to share with visitors to this site? If so, why not email me (at, and let’s have a conversation!

Other than that, I’m hoping to book some more exclusive interviews with various game show identities and to write up a few more of my PatentedHowToWinGameShowsBehindTheScenesReminiscences…

… Time permitting.

You see, there will be a few other demands on my time next year, including:

  • Moving my play – the comedy whodunnit A Madness Most Discreet – beyond the third draft, and hopefully slightly closer to a stage somewhere…

So, all in all, it’s shaping up to be a pretty interesting and fun year!

I’ll sign off now – for the last time in 2023 – by reminding you that, should you be so inclined, you can follow on Facebook (…

And there’s also my hub website

Phew! …. Aaaand that’s it.

Thank you so much for reading this far, and for your interest, encouragement and support right throughout 2023. It really does mean a lot to me.

Have a safe, happy, and restful new year, and I hope that 2024 brings you nothing but prosperity, happiness, laughter, and love.
