This is the first game of 2010 Game Show Decathlon (formerly known as the Game Show Summer Olympics). This is event 1 of a 10 week qualifying tournament. Here are the rules to the first game, Trivial Pursuit. Teams of 3 compete in each round. Player 1 will start and choose a category from the original 6 categories in the game Trivial Pursuit (Geography, Entertainment, History, Art & Literature, Science & Nature, Sports & Leisure). If you answer the question right, you earn the pie piece to that category, and if you have that pie piece already, you can earn a pie piece from any other category you don't have one for. If you don't get it right, Player 2 can steal the pie piece with a right answer, and if Player 2 is wrong, then player 3 has one final chance to win the piece. Then Player 2 chooses from the 5 remaining categories. When all 6 categories are exhausted, all 6 are back into play and then Player 2 is in control. Now, if a player is only one wedge away from completing their pie, and that category needed is available, that player MUST choose that category, otherwise, they can choose any category still in play to win. First player to complete their pie is the winner and plays the bonus round. BONUS ROUND : Now 6 categories will be given one at a time, and the winner must set a dollar amount to each question (but you will not know the other categories until they are played). You can bet $ 1000, $ 1500, $ 2000, $ 2500, $ 3000 or $ 10,000. You can only assign a dollar amount ONCE per category. If you are right, you win that amount.
