|This is the third of three games recorded during Andy's six-hour turn as part of Gamers vs. MS, a 168-hour marathon streaming relay that raised CA$17,500 for the MS Society of Canada between October 19 and 26, 2019. In Andy's words: "multiple sclerosis is a lifelong autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. It can affect everyone differently, but its main symptoms include extreme fatigue, lack of coordination, weakness tingling, vision problems, and much more. It often strikes between 15 and 40, the prime life-building years of many. Canada has some of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis worldwide, with an estimated 1 in 385 Canadians living with the disease. The funds raised during this relay go towards programs and services for those affected by MS, and research geared towards ending MS."|

|TOTAL||33||35½||38||Archivist's note: question 3 is a repeat of question 3 from halftime of Season 2, Episode 11, written by the same author — namely, me. That halftime round was played several months after I initially submitted it; thus, I thought it would never be played, so I re-purposed the music question into this one. As the hiatus lengthened, I lost any hope of this round ever seeing the light of day…|

|Rounded to the nearest 1,000 people, how many people watched Super Bowl XLIV in 2015 — the most-watched television broadcast in U.S. history by number of viewers?|
|Answer and bounds||Daniel||Joe||Mike|
|The question is stated above as Andy read it. He got the year correct — that is, the most-watched television broadcast in American history was the Super Bowl that aired on February 1, 2015 — he gave the wrong ordinal number. It was Super Bowl XLIX (49), not XLIV (44).|
