TWO GAMES IN ONE

The game is made up of two rounds. Each round starts with a mini game of Captain Obvious. This is a fast paced matching game where the players will win TURNS. They will then use the TURNS on the Take A Chance game board to win as much money as possible. TURNS can be passed to another player as BURNS. BURNS must be played, and that simple strategy can make the game very exciting.

 

CAPTAIN OBVIOUS

This is a game of speed and matching. The players will need to be the first to press their buzzer when the selector is on the image that is obviously different.

The host would explain it to the players like this...

"You will win Take a Chance by using your TURNS to win the most money. To earn those TURNS we have a game we like to call, Captain Obvious. In this game you will see four images. One of the images is OBVIOUSLY different. Be the first to buzz in when the selector is on that image, and you win a turn. To get you started we already gave each of you two turns. Let's Play!"

TAKE A CHANCE

After 5-7 rounds of Captain Obvious, the players should have earned enough TURNS to head to Round 1. Each player will use their TURNS to try and earn as much money as possible. They will decide to "Take a Chance," go for more, and risk Jack taking it all OR pass their remaining turns to "BURN" another player.  

The host would explain it to the players like this...

"You will use your buttons to stop the game board selector. You get whatever the selector lands on. Red Player, you are playing first.  You have two TURNS and no BURNS.  Do you want to BURN someone or TAKE A CHANCE?" 

 

 

After all TURNS have been used you will go back to a Captain Obvious round to earn more TURNS for Round Two. In Round 2 the stakes are higher and the risk is greater. See what happens when they decide to "Take a Chance"!!! (Come on, that's some good writing!)

This game is full of strategy, luck, and a whole lot of fun!

 

SETUP

CONTROL SCREEN

 The "Screen" button at the top right of the control screen will turn the game screen on. If you have multiple displays connected it will also let you select which screen you want the game on. Windowed mode is a great way to play the game on a single screen if you want to practice.

LUMA KEY

Click the "CAMERA:Black Screen" button to add a black screen over the logo. This setting can be used with a luma key in a video switcher to overlay the game over a live camera. This is a great way to really feel like your audience is in a studio watching a TV gameshow.

 

BUTTON SETUP

This game is way more fun if you have buttons to buzz in. The players will be using the LEFT, RIGHT, and DOWN arrow keys or 1, 2, 3 number keys to buzz in. Connecting buttons that will send those keystrokes to the games is our favorite way to play. Here is a video that shows how to connect buttons to the game.

Here is a tutorial to build your own buttons. Or you can buy some wireless AffordableBuzzers here
