Trivial Pursuit

Show Summary

Like the CBS Family Feud Challenge, this game show was an hour long & divided into two parts. PART 1 9 contestants competed. They were given a multiple-choice question & on their keypad, had to punch the correct answer as quickly as possible. The quicker you punched, the higher the score. After 5 questions, the top 6 moved on. Then another round was played the same way & the top 3 went on to Part 2 (and won a small prize). PART 2 In the television version, it took 12 wedges (2 of the 6 colors) to win. Player 1 started round 1 by choosing one of 6 categories & trying to answer it correctly for the wedge. If incorrect, the opponents can buzz in & steal that wedge. Then Player 2 got a turn followed by Player 3. Each player had two turns to play. Rounds 2 & 3 had specialty categories as well as a WIld Card. Play's like round 1, Player 2 started round 2 & Player 3 started Round 3. Also in that round are BONUS QUESTION! Whoever chose it & either answered corectly or an opponent buzzed in & correct, the player (or opponent) got to answer a bonus question for $100 & any color wedge. And like the DAILY DOUBLE, it was for that player only. The 4th round started with a toss-up. Whoever answered the toss-up got control & chose a category to fill their pie. If the control player missed, the opponents can steal that wedge (or get control if they already have that color). If all missed, another toss-up is asked. The first person who covers all 12 wedges (6 in each color) or came the closest if time expires (ala Make The Grade won the game & $500! BONUS: The winning contestant had 45 seconds to answer 6 questions for each color. Each color paid $100 & all 6 colors paid $1,000 + a trip!
