**Format**

The Dutch are responsible for this
no-so-little creation; one person within an audience of
200 people is given a chance to vie for a cash prize of
$2 million.

The audience is divided up into 2
even teams (Red and Blue) of 100 contestants. In the first
round - they are asked to answer 3 multiple-choice questions
by typing into a keypad. The total number of people you
answered correctly are added to the team scored. The team
with the lowest score after the 3 questions is eliminated
from the game.

Each of the coloured teams are also
divided into four teams of 25. In the second round - the
four teams from the coloured group which won the first
round play against each other in the same way - with the
winning numbered team making it through to the following
round.

The third round is known as the podium
round - with the 25 contestants from the winning team,
plus a randomly selected player from any of the other
losing teams - getting the chance to work as individuals
to acheive the highest score. A total of five questions
are asked - with a correct answer giving a player a number
of point equivalent to the number of contestants getting
the question wrong (eg. if 10 players get a question right
- they each receive 16 points [26-10=16]). The two players
at the end of the podium round with the highest score
face each other for the final elimination round.

In the elimination round - the compere
issues a series of clue to the identity of an answer.
The first player to buzzer in and provide the correct
answer gets the chance to play for the multi-million dollar
prize.

The second phase of the entire game
sees the lucky individual contestant select a gold briefcase
from one of 24 hostesses. Each case is numbered 1 to 24
- and contains a monetary amount ranging from 5 cents
to the major prize - $2 million. The contestant can opt
to keep the case in his/her possession, or perhaps opt
for the cash offer presented to them by the resident "bank"
at the end of a series of rounds. Once the case is chosen,
the remaining 23 cases are handed to each of the other
players from the podium round. The contestant is then
asked to nominate a number of cases (6 in the initial
round, 5 in the next, etc.) to be opened so that the monetary
amount in those cases can be revealed. The podium player
holding each nominated case is asked to hazard a guess
as to the amount in their case - and if they're correct,
they win a cash prize.

The number of cases to be revealed
in each round is as follows:

Round 1 - 6 cases (correct guess:
$6000)

Round 2 - 5 cases (correct guess: $5000)

Round 3 - 4 cases (correct guess: $4000)

Round 4 - 3 cases (correct guess: $3000)

Round 5 - 2 cases (correct guess: $2000)

Round 6 and any subsequent round - 1 case (correct guess:
$1000)

The aim of the player is to hopefully
not reveal the larger cash prizes. At the end of each
round - the "bank" will offer the contestant
a monetary amount to try and convince them to make a "deal"
and quit the game at that point. The amount the contestant
is offered is based on the odds that that player might
have the $2 million in their possession (or some other
large prize money amount). If the contestant believes
that they are in possession of big bucks or that the deal
the bank offer is not worth considering - they will say
"no deal" and the game will move on to another
round.

It's a high tension game that relies
strongly on luck, timing and a great deal of courage.
I find it a great deal of fun
