Teri’s Notebook: Carson City duo is incredible and has a paddle
Justin Thistle, a 2000 Carson High School graduate, has got a game for you.
A part of his Justincredible Entertainment business, he recently added the Incredible Game Show, mimicking shows like “Jeopardy,” “Family Feud,” “Minute to Win It” and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”
“I am always motivated by new and exciting features for events,” he said. “I have always felt that there should be more for people to participate in. The Incredible Game Show is the answer.”
Justin, 32, said he can customize the questions to make it fit a school curriculum or a corporate party. He said unlike other games in which only the players are engaged, his wide-screen televisions and microphones make it easy for spectators to join in the action.
“I’m actually able to make more of a spectacle and more of a game,” he said. “People are rooting with them. It’s a lot of fun.”
You can learn more about it at JustincredibleDJ.com, on The Incredible Game Show page on Facebook or give him a call at (775) 671-5900.
