Teams are either pre-selected or chosen at random. Survey Says? requires two teams of four to eight players per round. Material varies by the group can be “Kids/Family Oriented”, “Teenagers”, or “PG-13”.
Before we start each round, we like to “get to know” the players by asking them a “loaded” interview question which is designed to get them to say something funny.
A question is shown on the screen. Team captains face off at our deluxe podium for control of the board. If they get an answer on the board, the controlling team either plays the round or passes to their opponent. The answering team gets as many chances as necessary to find the most popular answers on our list. However, after three strikes, they lose control to the opposite team. The opposite team tries to “Steal” by getting one answer on the board. If the opposite team succeeds, they get all of the points. If the opposite team fails, the original team takes the points.
The rhythm of games can now be modified so the highest answer gets control or control is alternated after every answer, as well as teams keep the points they accumulate.
Contestants can be qualified to play either pre picked teams, volunteer, or play an audience response keypad game (All Play) or play physical challenge games.
Usually not played unless there are more prizes to be won—but available if desired.
4, 6, 8, or 12 teams are normal. The amount of people is only limited to how many can fit on stage. They can be pre-picked or random.
Actual game show program usually lasts up to 90 minutes with additional music played before hand. Extended tournaments can be played.
Emcee dresses for the nature of the event — for casual events — Game Show Gurus Polo shirts are ok, some corporate events require shirt and tie, a few require a suit. How many emcees of game shows have you seen in tuxedos? Rarely – but we can do that if the event calls for it.
Generally one round of three to five questions is played per game with multiple games played in a sixty to ninety minute program. (However we can modify this to your needs). Depends on how many teams and the nature of the event. Sometimes we play 3 to 5 games and keep score or set up a tournament. Winners can be determined by highest score or a leader board.
This game is easy to customize and can be scaled from “Fly In” to “5-Star” and can include final speed round.
Production levels for this game show can vary with budgets, location, amount of people, load in parameter’s, and venue. We usually provide a proposal based on these parameters. As the years go by, we redesign these sets every years as it evolves.
Custom — sets can be customized to client requests
(Please note that some of these pictures are from years past and show older production levels or designs. We are always improving the look of our game shows and always conform presentation to the event. As Survey Says is one of our longest running game shows, we have a lot of pictures — some dating back over a decade. We don’t photograph every event and sometimes an older photo shows some cool action even though the set may be obsolete).
