We really, I mean REALLY, wanted to like this! It was just ... not good. The sound system was terrible and the actors seemed to be acting just for themselves. There was much less audience participation that was suggested and we were only able to...continued

Description

Be advised that this show may contain strong language and sexual references.

Becoming an Actual Contestant:

When you arrive at the show, the lovely usher who takes your ticket will ask if you’re interested in playing the game. If you would like to play, you’ll receive a name tag and your name will be placed in the official fishbowl.

At the beginning of the show, eight contestants will be called up to the stage (Price is Right-style) and divided into two teams to compete in the first round. The winning team of each round will win fun, fabulous prizes, and the losing team’s lowest-scoring members will be replaced with new contestants.

This continues over several rounds (each one a completely new original category), and then the night’s greatest contestants square off against one another until there is one final Old School Game Show champion!
