Remember with what enthusiasm we ran to the TV screen, leaving all classes to cheer for your favorite team and at the same time feel like an expert.
July 14 is World Mind Games Day. Chess, checkers, backgammon, go and mahjong are considered the most ancient. These games are played by all nations in all countries of the world. Later, one of the main entertainments was intellectual games on television. Each of us dreamed of competing for the title of the smartest, for a big cash prize, or just to test our intellectual abilities.
“What? Where? When?”
One of the most common and oldest games on television. It was always interesting to watch the game of experts against TV viewers, and sometimes send your questions in the hope of winning. The form of such an intellectual game is now more and more gaining momentum among those who like to use their brains. It is not necessary to be an expert, anyone can gather their own team and fight in an intellectual battle with others.
“Who want to be a millionaire?”
There are variations of this show in many countries around the world. The rules are simple: the player is asked a question and given 4 possible answers. For each correct answer, the player earns money. The bigger the question, the more difficult it is. It was in such a game that the hero of the film “Slumdog Millionaire” played.
“My own game”
One of the few games that provides players with extensive encyclopedic knowledge. In what? Where? When?” connoisseurs rather show their sharp mind and ingenuity. The rules of “Custom Game” also provide answers to questions that are sorted into categories. Each question is worth a certain number of points, and only 3 people play. The one who first pressed the button answers. The game is made in such a way that the one who is always lagging behind in the course of the game at the end can become the winner, it all depends on knowledge and the right bet in the final.
The game is interesting in that very smart children compete in it and, of course, in the incredible speed with which the presenter Tina Kandelaki read the questions. The game has several rounds. By the end, there are fewer and fewer players left. In the last round, three players fight until a winner is revealed.
“Clever and Wise”
Another game for children (high school students). The game is like a quiz. But there is one huge bonus for the participants – the winner was admitted to MGIMO without exams. Of course, it was interesting to watch how young guys fight for victory.
“Field of Dreams”
Usually, after Leonid Yakubovich read out the question at the beginning of each round, no one remembered it at the end. The main thing in the show was communication with the players, gifts, dances, poems and everyone’s favorite “PRIZE!”. But it is always interesting and funny to watch.
