A category's "Hoffa count" is the number of episodes an unplayed category could have subsequently appeared in following its last appearance. It accounts for the fact that a category that has only appeared in two-player games may have fewer than twelve items in its list, and would thus be ineligible for a three-player game. (Such categories are denoted in italics in the above table; there presently are none.) To preserve the integrity of the game and of those unplayed categories, Andy cannot disclose to me the number of items in any such list, and I do not ask him. The actual "Hoffa List" consists of all categories whose count is ten or higher, as well as the eight categories revealed by Andy ("confirmed dead," so to speak) in Season 3, Episode 11.
