Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is a question you’ve heard at some point in your life and it was either coming out of the TV speakers or the computer’s. We all know about the popular TV show and of course wished to be on it, but for those of us who were less fortunate, we can settle for a game that recreates the contest fairly well.
Trivia in a well known package
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? doesn't really need an introduction but if you’ve been away from a TV set between ‘98 and late ‘08 then here’s a short introduction to it.
The contestant, or player in this case, is put face to face with a series of multiple choice questions to which he or she needs to give the correct answer in order to advance to the next one. Each question brings with it a sum of money which the contestant can win.
There are 15 questions and the last one guarantees you a million dollars, euros, pounds or the equivalent of a similarly large sum in other currency, depending on the country where it’s played. If you mess it up, you can lose all your winnings or choose to quit while you’re ahead.
Same rules, same questions
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is a game that is designed to work on the same principles as the game show. You still get three lifelines to call on when you’re unsure of an answer and you get to deal with increasingly harder questions.
That’s not the issue though, what is, is the fact that you always seem to get the same question. If you give the wrong answer on question 10, you start all over and go through the same ones as before. Basically, playing this game a couple of times allows you to memorize all the questions and answers, ultimately ending up to be the opposite of a challenge.
A nice game... the first three or four times
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is a nice little game to play on a casual day but we all know that unless you’re winning the Lottery, or a few other cases, repetition isn’t all that fun. The game needs more questions.
