2.5. Game Show Scenarios

Some believe that the most popular game types will be those linked to a TV game show, generating revenues through sponsoring or by charging for participation. Game show scenarios have numerous variations. The most challenging and intriguing are those scenarios that arise when presenting a contest among viewers of a live game show or replaying a recorded game show.

Consider, for example, replaying an episode of Hollywood squares (see Figure 2.12) or some trivia game show. At the beginning of the replay, the viewer can select to activate a play-along option. If that option is not selected, the show is replayed without interactivity. If that option is selected, then at specific applicable time periods, the viewer is presented the question before the participant and given the option to select an answer before the participant can answer that question. Once the participant answers the question, the viewer selection option is disabled. If the viewer selected the correct answer, his or her score is updated accordingly. When applicable, and depending on the rules of the game, an incorrect answer may suppress subsequent questions until a new session begins. When the score achieved by the viewer is sufficiently high, that viewer may be given some award.
