In round 1, our players are going to play for two platinum albums: Bob Seger's "Night Moves" and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" (around $1200). Deirdre leads, $300 to $200, so she gets the platinum records. But it's not over yet. BONUS QUESTION for $150...

In season 7, what talk show host paid $12,000 for a Mark Twain signature piece?
a) Oprah Winfrey
b) Katie Couric
c) Barbara Walters
d) Kathie Lee Gifford

Shayne says B, Deirdre says D... And it's B, meaning that Shayne takes the lead with $350.

Round 2... sees a pair of Reid Knuckle Busters, .32 caliber pistols that doubled as brass knuckles. They run $7000. Shayne holds on to his lead to win $950 and the knuckle dusters, meaning that Deirdre has to give back the records.

Up for grabs in the Haggle of a Lifetime, a Rolex Day/Date, worth $10,000. Shayne gets three out of nine. The Pawn Stars get... 8! Which means it's time for Rick and Shayne to deal. He starts it at $17,950, but knocks himself to $17,500.... and knocks himself to zero, because NO DEAL.

In the nightcap, it's Chris (real estate agent from Henderson, NV) vs. Sami (attorney originally from West Texas). At the end of round 1, the Pawn Stars lead, $400 to Sami's $300, so they defend a Lincoln/Douglas lithograph. Rick goes on to successfully defend a Colt carbonic pellet gun worth $7500. But Sami holds on to win $650 to Chris' $600. In the Haggle of a Lifetime, we're playing for that cash and an 1880 traveling gambler's kit (with a gun and a knife in it) worth $10,000. Sami outscores the Pawn Stars, 7 to 6. Time to haggle. We start at $9500. We DEAL for $3333... but Sami could've won the lot.

While we were spending our Tag Team Thursday watching robots bend it like Beckham in Brazil, we were going over day 1 of Comic-Con in Rapid Refresh... and in tonight's #HashtagWars, where the subject is... #LameConventions. Marc leads with 900 to the others' 400 a piece.

Next up, it's Take Back the Nightmare (scary scenes from a show that is actually made for children) and JuggalOK Cupid (ICP fans on OKCupid). Today's Live Challenge: R_I_P. Yahoo! Japan launches "Yahoo! Ending", a service that launches your digital presence after death. Write your own final e-mail. Kyle gets the 1000 for this: "Dave, please throw out my fleshlight. Mom, a fleshlight is a Georgia O'Keeffe candle holder (but still throw it out). Love, Kyle."

Also this weekend, RollerCon in Vegas. To celebrate all things roller derby, we have "Roller No Balls", where we come up with the best roller derby name. Kyle gets off one just in the nick of time to send Sara to the showers.

FTW: this man... any where that could be tattooed or pierced is. Write the first line of his/her LinkedIn profile. The winner: "You bet your ass I can run a Tilt-a-Whirl." We should hope so, but who wrote it? KYLE KINANE! Kyle and @EaglesROwnage are winnners!

Remember, today's funny becomes Monday's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

In Round 1, you have to RAID THE KITCHEN for whatever you can find. You have 30 minutes to create a dish based on this theme: stick. Everything you make must be skewered #OnAStick.

Grant: Chic' on a Stick (bacon and a dry piece of chicken)... and he only made one, so the judges have to share.
Larissa:  Crunchie Munchie (pretzel & cheese puff-crusted chicken skewer with a peanut butter & jelly slaw)
Stephan: Lick Me Love Me Special Sticks (chicken & jalapeno cupcakes).

ELIMINATED: Grant, and much deserved.

In the Final Snack-Off, our players will have full access to Snacktopia. They will have 30 minutes to make their signature snack, which MUST feature in some way the Mystery Munchie. Today's Mystery Munchies... Peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time!

Larissa: The Hangover Helper (PB&J bagel burger with a fried egg)
Stephan: Fresh off the Jalapeno Boat (jalapeno jelly boats with peanut butter sauce)

IT'S JUDGMENT TIME!!! The Snack-Off Champion.... between a dry burger and a jally popper with skin on it... STEPHAN!
