| Dutch "That's The Question" Rules (Coming to GSN)
| Thursday, August 03, 2006
|If you read about GSN's new shows from the TCA announcements, you heard about the new show "That's The Question" with host Bob Goen. Here are the rules for the Dutch version. How much of it translates to us is up for grabs.
Two players compete. A hidden question is shown, and the host reads an answer, like this.
.. ..... .... ..… .. ..... ....... ?
Obviously, you have no idea what the question is, so we play Mini Questions. Player 1 starts. The host reads a mini question with the answer scrambled. All anagrams have one extra letter. Here is an example.
Mini Quesetion: What is King Arthur's castle named?
Anagram Answer: E L O C E M T A
Player 1 guesses. If wrong, his/her turn is over. If right, the extra letter, which in this case is E, is places into the hidden question. The player gets 1 point for each time the letter appears. Also, turns alternate between players each time no matter what. Here's what the question looks like.
.. .e..e .... ..… .e ..e.. ....e.. ?
This continues until the question is solved by a player. The player who gets the question wins 5 extra points. That person also gets to answer a photo bonus question. Two pictures are shown that are related to the question, and the player must pick out the right one. 5 bonus points are given for a right answer.
Round 2 is the same, but players keep control until a wrong answer is given, each time a letter placled is 2 points, and the correct question solved/photo bonus is worth 9 each.
My Dutch isn't great, but here's round 3. A hidden question is given, but no answer. Letters randomly are placed in the question, and a player can buzz in when they know the question/answer. If they get both, they get 10 points. Whoever has the most points win.
In the bonus, the player is shown yet another Hidden Question, with no answer. To find letters, the winner plays a timed Mini Question game. The winner's points are turned into seconds, and as long as time remains, the player is given a Mini Question with the Anagram Answer + 1 extra letter. A wrong answer means we move on to the next question. A right answer places the extra letter in the question and I believe the answer. This continues until time is up. If the player can give the question and answer, he/she wins 1000 euro. If not, the player comes back tomorrow.
If the player wins the grand, he/she has an option. The player can leave with the money earned, or come back the next show. Here are situations that occur for each outcome.
Leaves= Leaves with money
Comes back + Loses Main Game = Leaves with no money
Comes back + Wins Main Game + Loses Bonus Round = Leaves with 1/2 money
Comes Back + Wins Main Game + Wins Bonus Round = Doubles Money and can come back again.
The player can stay for 3 days max, meaning he/she can win up to 4000.
I will say that this is really original, seems exciting and very entertaining. I have no idea when the show comes out or how much GSN will change the format, but if we keep it anything like this, it looks entertaining.

Does that looks like what happens in the ESPM Trival Pursuit bonus game?
FYI, there's also a version aired in France called "Tele la question" (translated: What's the question) it has a millionaire-like set with no audience (not even laugh/applause tracks) and One really complicated scoring system.
