Show Summary

Welcome to the Nick Arcade guide at . Two teams of kids and grown ups competed. To start, one member of each team played a face-off game where the winner got 25 points and control. The team in control got to move Mikey on a grid of about 15 squares. The object was to move him up, down, left or right towards a goal. On each square was an event. The host referred to these as the four P's "points, puzzles, pop quizzes and prizes." So, some squares would be worth free points, some worth a free prize, some had video puzzles for points, and some squares contained pop quizzes. There, the team that landed on the square would pick a topic and a buzz-in question would be asked for 25 points. If a team hit the monster for the day, they lost control. If a video challenge came up, the team that moved Mikey there would choose one of five video games on stage. One member of the team would risk any or all of their points to that point. The other had to meet or beat the "Wizard's Challenge" in 30 seconds. Points were added or subtracted accordingly. If a team reached the goal, the team that did not move Mikey picked from the pop quiz categories and the other team tried to answer a question for 50 points. If time ran out before anyone reached the goal, Mikey moved straight to the goal and the question was asked as a buzz-in. A second round was played with bigger point values, and a goal worth 100 points. The team in the lead after this round won the game. In the bonus round, the winner's entered the "Video Zone" in an attempt to win cash and prizes. In one minute, the team had to conquer a level each individually and face the "Game Wizard" together to win it all. Each level completed was worth 50 and a prize.

Nick Arcade was nominated for a CableACE Award in 2002.
