The game is very friendly for Joe & Jane America with multiple choices questions, relaxed pace and large font size.
The material was in all but a few questions not very challenging which is fine. Best of all it is trivia and not that kind of opinion stuff or facts from strange sources.
Three players lock in their answers and get points for being right. One expert plays each round and answers as well with some kind of electronic pad device. If the expert misses any contestant also correct gets double points.
50 or 100 in Rd. 1 and 100 or 200 in Rd. 2
Fine by me that low player is not eliminated at this point and all three go to the next round.
In round 3 the players can answer on their own for the full 400 points or they can default to the expert's answer for 200 if the hot shot is correct.
High score after round 3 wins $1000 and goes to the bonus round to try to win $10,000. It's five questions like soccer PKs with both contestant and expert locking in answers. If after five questions the contestant is ahead then that is $10,000. If tied there is one final question to try to win.
If a contestant can win the ten thousand three times then that person will be an expert on a later show. Cool and hope it happens.
The expert who plays the bonus round was chosen by which of the three did the best in the previous round as even if not in the hot seat facing the contestants the other two still lock in answers from their seats. The two experts who do not play in Rd. 1 or 2 also get a chance after the round to throw out a one-liner about how they did.
Ad lib or scripted? It was corny either way although I'm hopeful it was off the tops of their heads.
Today's winning contestant:
In poker, which of these hands is ranked the highest?
Ryan knew full house while Sara Anne (I think it was her only miss of the entire show?) had flush.
If anyone else watches and recognizes a player from first names only for a prior J! appearance then let me know and I will give them a line in their bios.
Robert: For the experts do you want them to have a line in their J! bios? If so, provide acceptable wording. Thanks
