So it's been a whole decade since Reverend David and the empty box moment, Matty's self-inflicted (but still painful to watch) 1p win, Gemma's underrated £35k win at Easter, and some of the worst banker behaviour ever displayed in Alex's game, where the banker virtually brainwashed Alex into dealing early by guaranteeing a forcing offer if he lost a big number and then punished him with stupidly inflated proveout offers :smt011 We had the likes of Peter Law, Derek Brown, Simmo, Empty box Kirsty (though she did pretty much NOTHING besides that moment), Big Ron and Eunice all on the wings

After the first two months of 2008 which were pretty middle of the road, this was when things really started to deteriorate for the show. With the plague of bad luck, tears and cautious/shell-shocked contestants dealing early missing out on huge wins really starting to take hold around this time :smt009

Two different attitudes to the game...

*box is opened, empty; Noel walks around confused*
David: AN ACT OF GOD!

*Noel opens Matty's box, revealing 1p*
Matty: [mutters] I feel sick.

I watched Eunice's game a few months ago on Yew Toob. She was a character and a half, wouldn't surprise me if she's still going now.

Derek, yeah, when I saw his game for the first time (also a few months ago, after many years of people on here harking back to it) it was entitled 'unluckiest game ever'. After the first few rounds, I thought, 'hold on, what's all that about? He's not been unlucky at all so far!'
The key there being, 'so far'...but, hey, he took it well. :)

It's...it's terribly quiet. It's a ghost town. It's desolate as you say.

All of us who were once part of the furniture, once stalwarts of the grand and extravagant, exuberant and thriving forum...have receded back into the walls, still barely visible, still here as poignant, reminding relics of an era gone by...but most of us have vanished, forever immersed in the mists of time.

The atmosphere at the end of Matty's game was extraordinary, almost unprecedented at the time. i think it was the first time since 1p Trevor where the atmosphere was totally dead at the end, with the eerie silence in the studio, Matty's wife in tears and Matty looking as if he was about to hang himself after the game collapsed.

It was so bad that when Matty no-dealt the final offer of 11p, there wasn't even the usual 'polite applause' like there was when Trevor, near tears and barely able to speak, no dealt his final offer, it was just complete silenece. i'd never seen the atmosphere so dead before!

Derek Brown's game was, of course, completely usurped by Nikki a few months later, which saw it pale into comparison despite being a hallmark trainwreck at the time. An entire hall of fame wing was to be set aside for his game alone. Nowadays, especially in the wake of the international monstrosity that was Mark de Souza's 2012 game, it doesn't look all *that* unlucky. I do recall that it was notable at the time for producing the first blue 'squashdown', which feels rather late for such a relatively easy achievement.

Matty, well, he may well have looked like he was in the process of buying the farm, but he appeared all chipper in the '1p club' audience during the Banker's birthday week not long after... maybe about three weeks or so in recording time.

Christ, commenting on decade old game shows at this time.

I remember the ending, it was just silent and painful. I don't know whether to feel sorry for him or to say he was arrogant.

So, things like the Beijing Olympics, the jolly credit crunch starting to set in, Facebook overtaking MySpace as the most popular social media platform (subsequently resulting in MySpace's sharp descent into obscurity), Thumbs-down votes being displayed with YouTube comments and how offended you felt when you saw your comments get thumbs-down votes, were all an entire decade ago?? I still consider 2006/2007 to be 10 years ago, rather than 2008 :shock:

Let's fast-forward a year to 2009, when things were not quite the show's heyday of 2006, but still far more positive than 2008 (and luckier for that matter!). Around this time in 09, we had 97 year old Joe (unlikely he's still around though :( ), Lovely Lisa play the 1000th show and won £50k but missed out on the £250k, the 1000th show celebrations where the £1,000 was replaced by a large cash prize and the first of only 2 all-blue 8-boxes which shocking went over everyone head at the time!!

Not too sure it did, it did make waves at the time to the extent that I even had vague knowledge of such an event taking place, and this was during my wilderness years of paying any sort of attention to the show. It was Noel who forgot about it immediately, bless his cotton beard.

The reveal of the final red in that game is a memorable moment, though. There's an absolute *shriek* from the audience and befuddled faces all around - especially as there were two former 'statsman' contestants present, who knew just how unlikely taking out the last three reds were... and it happened before their eyes in a landmark week. I put the video online somewhere... if you find it, you're a better man than me.

Ironically though, Chris' trainwreck game wasn't entirely unavoidable like say Mark D, or Billy from July 2014 where the banker made absolutely no effort to buy the box whatsoever, as he did get a good offer of £7,500 at 11-box with just the three reds he took out in the 4th round (£20k, £50k and £75k) remaining at that stage of the game - Imagine if he dealt, it would've been the most amazing proveout ever :shock: (Though after the shock/delight of being GUARANTEED a complete victory from 8-box, it might've gotten a little bit boring seeing two pointless proveout rounds from then on)

And i cannot believe that games like £75k Kirsty, Johnnie, JT etc. are all a jolly *12* years old as of this week :o

I also can't believe April 2007 was 11 years ago too, this time in 2007 was the beginning of the end for the "wakey era". £32k Charlie's game is 11 years ago today was an important game which was not only a desperately needed great win after 3 weeks of of bad luck, squandered big wins and outright losses to the banker, but all the big 'wakey era' annoyances like blue chanting, Noel being nasty to players who dealt to early etc. noticeably started to wane from here on in and more characters started to shine after a fairly boring couple of weeks on the wings. There were still a few big gamblers and the ultra-generous offered still lingered for a while afterwards, but by the end of May, the Wakey era itself had well and truly become a thing of the past

11 years ago, Bunney reappeared in Dee's game dressed as the Easter Bunny :shock: :| Dee had a HUGE opening offer of £18,000 after taking 4 blues and £1,000 in the first round, and after a game of mixed fortunes, Dee settled for £10k at 8-box and subsequently destroyed her board in the last 2 rounds :)

It actually feels a bit funny not having Easter on the weekend of April 7/8 this year, as the last 2 years (2012 and 2007) that have had April 7/8 on a weekend, have had Easter fall on that weekend!

Let's see what happened in past years around this time

In 2006 Maxine played after 11 shows on the wings without witnessing a single blue win and won £10,000 from her box, Fadil joined the 1p club but him and wife just kept smiling and were geniunely grateful for the experience, and Gabrielle got the first ever banker handout as her initial winnings of £1,000 were doubled to £2,000 because it was Easter and Gabrielle was playing for charity

In 2007, Vikki was the second wheelchair bound contestant to appear on the show (although her game was far less exciting than Peter's), Miles had a great win of £26,400, Steve's game had above-mean offers and contestants doing the robot dance :lol: and Penny almost did what Keran did 19 months later....if only she'd swapped :cry:

In 2008, Things were really starting to go wrong with Janna and Ronnie being cautious and missing out on huge wins in the aftermath of Derek and Bash's trainwrecks, and Bash's game also saw some odd behaviour from Noel, as he actually tried to guilt-trip Bash at the end for not taking the second offer :shock: :?

In 2009, we were seeing the last of the contestants from H2005's game play, with Will and Trudi both dealing at around £16k-ish on £250k or peanuts 5-box boards and being right to do so, Ollie and his short-lived record as the most vocal Hull-ite to appear on the show ( ;) ), and Daimon become the second player to join the infamous 'Nothing Network' after Lee. After the somewhat comedic nature of Lee founding the Nothing network, the novelty was immediately killed by Daimon's game

April 2010 was (IMO at least) possibly the last good month of DoND before the show started to really go downhill, and the month saw the twist at easter produce some interesting finishes and Ramesh's £77,000 win, which was actually the first time the £250k ever came to the table during the month of April

April 2011 started well with £20k Paul and £46k Sophie's games but then hit rock bottom again with the middle part seeing the first ever run of FOUR consecutive blue wins. Things continued to struggle for the rest of the month, but that would all change when May rolled around!

I can't really be bothered doing the rest right now :|

11 years ago, Jamie dealt at £28k on a 5-box board that was remarkably similar to £26,400 Miles a few days earlier with 2-blues/£20k/£50k/£75k at 5-box, and had an OPW when he found the highest 2 and had £20k on the table just as Miles did!!

A game that was no doubt geared towards inflated offers rather than board strength, but was the start of a great week of games with 3 large wins (2 of which were OPWs and one was a healthy TPW), an OPW for a 4-figure sum which was still a great result, a mediocre but still decent win, and a sting in the tail with a self-inflicted blue win
