Trivia / Starcade

  • Fan Community Nicknames: "Starcaders". The contestants were also called this occasionally.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Thankfully averted. JM Productions has all the master tapes and has put many episodes onto the Starcade website; the Dragon's Lair 20th Anniversary DVD also includes a full episode (where a Dragon's Lair machine was the grand prize) as an extra. If you look on Google, you'll find an older version of the website with clips of the Eurzione and Trebek pilots.
  • One of Us: After getting the job, Geoff immersed himself into the genre, becoming a fan and gamer in the process. He frequently gave hints before contestants played (some relatively obvious, others not so much), and a "Starcade Hotline" segment consisted of him playing and beating Sinistar (a notoriously difficult game) after a taping. Geoff remained a devoted fan for the rest of his life, playing modern games as well as the classics.
