A Ryan Bugaj original.
|THE BASIC IDEA|
Object: Identify famous people, places, and things only by a series of clues.
Theme: Body Language by Score Productions.
The game consists of two rounds, each lasting 10 questions. In Round 1, questions are worth $50 and are worth $100 in Round 2. A typical question would work like this:
I am a famous actor.
I was in a series of boxing movies.
I fought Mr. T, Dolph Lundgren, and Tommy Morrison.
For $50, guess my name.
Each question has three clues to help the contestants arrive at the correct identity. Oh, by the way, give yourself $50 if you guessed "Sylvester Stallone" (referring to the Rocky series). Contestants are not penalized for wrong guesses.
The player with the highest score after 2 rounds wins the game and plays for the $25,000 in the "Jackpot Dash".
The Jackpot Dash uses the same question format as in the main game, except a time element is involved: to win the money, the contestant must answer 10 questions in 60 seconds in order to win. If the contestant does so, he/she wins $25,000. If not, the contestant receives $100 for every correct response.
Contestants stay on for 5 games or until they are defeated.
This was the first game show concept I came up with--at seven years of age. The original concept had a jackpot worth many times more than what it is here--I reduced it in order to be a little more realistic (and to assure that the budget director doesn't jump out a window!).
It's also a very simple concept: identify people, places, or things using only 3 clues. Simple games usually do very well, and this one could be no exception.

4th, once You Don't Know Jack, Outburst, and Mall Madness are off the ground.
