We can add a “Game Show” to any scavenger hunt or Board Game Battle for more competition and fun! The cost is  $1,000.

If you would like a “Game Show” as a stand alone without adding it onto a hunt or a battle the cost is $1,200.

Family Feud

# Players: 6-12 per game

Run time: 1 hour per game

Description: Classic team game where players must identify most popular answers to a given survey question.

What makes it great: Family Feud is the quintessential party game.  It’s friendly, team-oriented, and almost no special knowledge is needed.

Prize Structure: Winning team gets to choose 2 members to play the “Fast Money” round.  If they can score enough points, they win a (grand) prize or monetary purse.  If they do not, they win a lesser prize or purse.

Beat the Mob

# Players: 15-40

Run Time: 1 to 3 hours

Description: Based on the hit show “1 Vs. the Mob”.  One player is the contestant, while all of the other players form “The Mob”.  Correct answers to our multiple choice trivia questions knock out wrong answers from the Mob, while growing the purse.  Contestants can walk away with the purse at any time… but get one wrong and the Mob splits the spoils!

What makes it great: Beat the Mob can entertain a large number of players, since even the people who aren’t contestants are playing.

Prize Structure: Normally cash (or equivalent), but can also use points that can get turned in for prizes at the end.

 Jeopardy

# Players:  Single game: 3; Two games: 6; 3-game knockout tournament format: 9;

Run Time: Single game: 30 minutes + up to 15 minutes for qualifier, if needed; 3-game knockout tournament: 2 hours, including qualifier, if needed

Description:   Players buzz in to score points by answering trivia questions. With large groups we can run a pregame qualifying quiz where players compete to get in. We can mix serious and humorous content, or add customized content – For Cindy’s birthday, we can create a category called “Famous Cindy’s”.  For a group of doctors we can include a category on medicine or famous doctors.

What makes it great: Jeopardy is THE game for crowds that are seriously competitive about their trivia.  Arguably the most popular American game show of all time, it is also the gold standard for trivia games.

Prize Structure: Winner gets a grand prize.  In tournaments, second place (and perhaps third place) may get lesser prizes.

Pyramid

# Players: Single game: 4; 8 and 16 – person tournament formats available;

Run Time: Single game: 20 minutes; 8-person tournament: 50 minutes; 16 person tournament: 2 hours.

Description:   You have 30 seconds to describe to your partner a series of seven clues fitting a chosen category.  The high-scoring team gets to play in The Winner’s Circle to win a purse or prize.  Content can be customized to highlight your themes or event.

What makes it great: The classic game show everyone can play still offers serious players a competitive partnership challenge.

Prize structure:  Winner’s Circles offer a shot at (increasing) monetary purses or prizes, with a consolation amount or prize for just getting there.

The Weakest Link

# Players: 6 to 10

Run Time: 45-90 minutes, depending on how many players start

Description: Popular in Great Britain for a decade, “The Weakest Link” is Jeopardy meets Survivor.  A team of players have up to 3 minutes to chain correct answers to trivia questions. The more correct answers in a row, the more money the team can make.  But they must choose when to bank those winnings, and when to let them ride. After each round, players vote one of their number out of the game.  Rounds continue until only two players remain.  Winner of a final round then takes all.

What makes it great: Surprisingly complex and subtle group dynamics develop as players must weigh whether to get rid of weak players who cost them money, or strong players who will be hard to beat in the endgame. The Weakest Link fits well with competitive groups who also enjoy getting snide, snarky, and basically messing with each other.

Prize structure:  Winner gets the monetary purse built up in the game.  Alternatively players can play for points that can get turned in for an increasingly better prize at the end.
