  • British "1 vs. 100" Rules
    Sunday, September 03, 2006
    UKGameshows.com has posted the complete rule list for BBC's new lottery game show "1 vs. 100". After reading it, I'm in a bit of shock that I actually think a US format is leaps and bounds better than a UK one. Tell me what you think

      What the freak? The dodges sound very confusing. I hope NBC doesn't try to copy that format and just stick with what they are doing right now.

      To be fair, they are just the same as the Dutch ones but with 50%-50%-50% penalties rather than 25%-50%-75%.

      I bonus dodge idea is silly.

      I think the format will likely sink without trace but it does at least make the deployment of the double more interesting.

      I'm slowly warming to it, but the bonus dodge will kill it especially if it's too obviously in the hands of the producers.

      I couldn't forgive the flat £1k per elimination until I realised that there really isn't a massive benefit in having the money go up and up at the end if - as is the case here and in the Dutch show - there's no bailout option. Except for the double, because now it won't be worth €50k as it can be in the Dutch version but more likely something like £2k (either through eliminating two right at the end or eliminating, say, 16 people early on for £16k only to have that extra money halved, halved and halved again - and maybe again after that! - with the dodges). I think really the double is there to bump the theoretical top prize up to the £250,000 of Deal, to make people tune in to the first show because it might look bad for the BBC if their primetime shows can't compete with Channel 4 daytime - though I thought they had a hard-and-fast rule of not giving away more than £100k...

      I'll still be watching. It's still a cracking format.
