From the box: It's you against the mob in the most exciting trivia game ever.
Contents: 275 question cards (825 questions), card holder, wipe-off mob board with stand, 51 mob tokens, 4 cardboard shields, 5 answer photos, 3 answer cards, wipe-off money board, score pad, wipe-off pen, and instructions
Gameplay: One player is the contestant. The other player(s) become the mob. The mob divides one hundred mob tokens as evenly as possible. One mob player, acting as host, reads a question and its three possible answers aloud. The mob players use their tokens to secretly choose one or more answers.
When the mob players have finished distributing all of their tokens, the contestant may ask for one of three helps before giving a response to the question. The helps one response of the contestant’s choosing), Trust the Mob (the contestant is forced to choose whichever response has the most tokens on it) or Ask the Mob (this eliminates one wrong response). The contestant can use each help only once.
If the contestant gives the correct response, the money is added to the bank equal to the level the player is on multiplied by the number of tokens the mob has put on the wrong responses. The levels start at $1000 and ascend to $10,000. The mob tokens that are on the incorrect responses are out of play.
The game is over when the contestant gives an incorrect response. This means the money in the bank is divided among the mob players who still have tokens. The contestant wins $1,000,000 when the mob loses all its tokens. The contestant can quit the game before ascending to the next level and keep whatever money has been accumulated in the bank.
Players continue the game until each player has been the contestant. A running total of the scores of each game is kept. The player with the highest score is the winner.
Considering that the television series uses 101 contestants, this is reasonable faithful translation of the television series.
