Two teams face off in front of a "Pyramid" of six categories. Players will guess words or phrases in a category, based on the description given by their partner. The team with the most points goes on to play in "the winner's circle".
Here is a quick video of how the game works.
This is a live demo and some behind the scenes clips to show what it looks like to play the game. The version of the game in this clip has a slightly different look. But the gameplay is the same.
CLOSE UP VIEW
Click to the close-up view to see a larger view of the questions. This background is pure black to make it easier to "key out"
LumaKey -We set the backgrounds to the contestant screens to pure black. This allows you to use a video switcher to "key out" the backgrounds and put them live over a camera.
