Description:

This social/physical program is a resident competition program played to the style of the game-show Name That Tune. Five contestants out of however many attend are chosen based on their answer to this question, "How many stores are in the Mall of America?" The answer is 520 stores. The five contestants who get the closest will compete. The rest will serve as the game-show audience (like the television show greed). The five contestants are then given 4 crisp dollar bills. Next, the contestants are given a letter (A, B, C, D, or E). These numbers are based on how close their answers were, the closest being A, and so on. The game is played in 10 rounds. The rounds are as follows.
Round 1 – A vs. B
2 – C vs. D
3 – E vs. A
4 – B vs. C
5 – D vs. E
6 – A vs. C
7 – B vs. D
8 – C vs. E
9 – D vs. A
10 – E vs. B
The contestants then take turns competing during their designated rounds against each other. The player whose letter comes up first in the round schedule will pull a sheet of paper out of a hat. On that sheet of paper will be the title of the task they will have to do (other considerations). The person who’s letter comes first in the schedule will say how many or how much of the particular task he/she can do. The other person will be able to say, I can do (so many) more, or I challenge you to do what you said you could do. The bidding will go back and fourth until there is a challenge. If the person accomplishes the goal, he/she will obtain a dollar from the other person. If the person does not accomplish the goal, he/she will forfeit a dollor to the other person. The game is over when all ten rounds are finished. Each player has the capability to make anywhere from 8 dollars to zero dollars.
