Dating game show ideas
Dating back to the 1970’s and 80’s with The Price is Right, Jeopardy, and Family Feud – more recent crazes include Do You Want To Be A Millionaire, Deal or No Deal, and Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader.All of these game shows have a few things in common – contestants, a host, prizes, challenges, anticipation, and humor.Design your own game or stylize it after a popular game show.Make the game your own by implementing your own set of rules and time limits.This will be one of the draws to selling tickets and filling the audience. As with any event that has generated an audience, complement your event by selling soda, water, candy, pizza, or raffle tickets.Consider gift certificates to local restaurants, grocery stores, toy stores, or movie theaters, pre-paid phone cards, or even a free car wash by a group of students. And finally, send thank you notes to sponsors and let your committee members know how much you appreciate their hard work.Reserve the school auditorium where the game show will take place.
This will serve as additional publicity for sponsors as well as publicity for your event.
At least one of the games should be one where the contestants are randomly chosen from the audience.
This will sell tickets and keep the audience interested and entertained at the anticipation of being chosen.
Include a mix of academic and fun questions and competition ideas submitted by both students and teachers.
For instance, “Name something a hockey player has to put on before a game”; “Name three types of clouds”; or “Name a punctuation mark on a computer keyboard”.
Although your committee volunteers are the ones to make up the game rules and questions, the game show host is the person responsible for announcing the rules of the game to the audience and contestants and for keeping the game running smoothly and continuously.
