Of interest to anyone who follows Erfworld, Rob Balder’s brilliant web comic about boardgaming: Rob is in the process of converting his first book into a semi-animated version, and it turns out that his volunteer voice actor for the protagonist, Parson Gotti, doesn’t just sound like Rob wanted, he also strongly resembles Parson physically…and apparently has the same level of genius strategic cunning.
So at the time of this post, your narrator and ours (the voice for all the Epilogues and Summer Update Redux posts) Arthur Chu is the current 2-Day champion on Jeopardy!, with a combined total of $64,000. He is kicking ass, and you should watch him again tonight!
But the really interesting thing besides all the Twitter hate he’s generating is how he is playing the game: jumping categories, leading with $800/1600 questions, clicking in with obvious (some say obnoxious) ferocity. There’s some real Parson/Charlie gamesmanship going on here.
