RULES

“DINNER AND A GAME SHOW” RULES

Please do not use cell phones or say answers out loud while questions are being asked.

“WHO WANTS TO WIN SOME POINTS?”

Ten multiple R1.001choice questions are asked. Teams respond with only the letter of the answer. If the team answers correctly, they are awarded the points. If the team writes the incorrect answer, no points are awarded. The team who scores the most points will qualify for the first Blitz-Off.

Any tie scores are settled by a one-on-one sudden death buzzer question.

“SURVEY SAYS”

R2.001Two survey questions will be asked that were asked to 100 people (unless otherwise noted). Teams will write down what they feel are the most popular answers, and are permitted to write the number of answers that are on the board plus one. Any extra answers will be discarded. If a team gives all of the answers listed on the board, their total for that question will be augmented to 100 points. The team with the highest score qualifies for the first Blitz-Off, unless it is the team that won the first round. If the team that won round one wins round two, the second place team from this game will play in the second Blitz-Off, while the first place team will get a 20 point advantage.

Any tie scores are settled by a one-on-one sudden death “Bullseye” survey question.

“THE BLITZ-OFF”

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 2.34.17 PM90 seconds are given to respond correctly to questions. Contestants must buzz in and give the correct answer. If a correct answer is given, player is given 10 points, if an incorrect answer is given, the player loses 10 points. A buzz-in is signified by the software on the screen, and NOT by the lights on the buzzer. Buzzing in stops the host’s reading of the question, and a player has three seconds to answer, or lose 10 points. Players have 3 seconds to buzz in after the question is asked, or the host will move on to the next question.

“ANSWERS & QUESTIONS”

R3.001Two categories of clues will be given, with each question increasing in value from 500 to 2500 points. All responses must be given in the form of a question, otherwise no points will be given. Teams receive points for a correct response, none for an incorrect response. Answers that are close enough in spelling (at the discretion of the host), will be accepted, unless the misspelling creates a different word or meaning. The team who scores the most points will qualify for the second Blitz-Off.

Any tie scores are settled by a one-on-one sudden death buzzer question.

“SAY WHAT?”

R4.001Players are given their choice of two categories. Category names give some idea to the nature of the words that will be given, either figurative or literal. The  clue giver is given a list of seven words to attempt to get their partner to say in 30 seconds. Forms of the word are accepted, unless the answer is presented in quotation marks.

Contestants may use gestures, but may not use the word or any significant portion of the words. Contestants also may not use “sounds like” “rhymes with” or any clues as to the spelling or sound of the word.

Contestants must go down the list in order, but can pass by saying “pass”, after which the word is gone, and cannot come back to it. If the word is said by the contestant after the other player passes, it may be accepted, if no significant clues to the next word have yet been given. The team with the highest score qualifies for the second Blitz-Off, unless it is the team that won the first round. If the team that won round one wins round two, the second place team from this game will play in the second Blitz-Off, while the first place team will get a 20 point advantage.

Any tie scores will be settled by playing another round with just the tied teams until the tie is broken.

“NO WHAMMIES!”

PART ONE

The host will ask four questions: Three multiple choice, and one write-in answer question. We’ll collect the sheets and score them. You’ll get one spin on the big board for each multiple choice question your team gets correct, and two spins for the write-in question. The spins can earn you up to and (possibly over) over 5000 points a piece.

PART TWO

This is where we play the big board. A flashing light will bounce around the the board at random, which you will stop by hitting the button. There are all kinds of values and prizes on the board, including 5000 and a spin, and a car worth over 6,000 points. You receive whatever you stop on, but be careful, if you hit a Whammy, you’ll lose all your points. If you’re afraid of the Whammy, you can pass your remaining spins at any time to the player with the highest, or next highest amount of points if you’re in the lead. If a team hits three Whammies, you are automatically eliminated.
