The GAME Series 1 - Episode 6 - SimTV Special

Darren: Welcome to the sixth episode of the GAME, and the final episode of the series. Speaking of specials, today's show is a SimTV special, where the players are playing to prove themselves as a SimTV fan, and to earn a prize money can't buy. Lets meet today's players..

Darren: Our first player in the red room is Raymond. He's 67 and has a lot of time on his hands for watching TV. His favourite SimTV show is Sim Street, because he likes a good drama.. especially one with lots of different, exciting, story lines.

Darren: Next door in the blue room is May. She get's paid to watch TV, and if we had a studio audience they'd be booing her now, because she works for a rival TV company! She does enjoy her job though, watching SimTV all the time for research purposes. Her favourite show is Sim Date, for it's uniqueness, comedy and especially the host, Mr Love!

Darren: Next up is Jerry. He has lots of time for watching TV, but he of course isn't retired like Raymond. He's unemployed. His favourite show is Sim Brother because it lasts the longest and keeps him entertained for weeks! He's even auditioned to go on it before. Hopefully he knows about the other shows though, because the last episode was about Sim Brother, and therefore won't feature in today's show.

Darren: The final contestant, in the green room, is Joanne. She's a student, and spends way too much time watching TV, instead of studying! She also likes Sim Brother, but her second favourite show is Sim Hospital, mainly because she's a medical student, and likes that sort of thing!

Darren: It's now time for our first round, called Our Survey Says... For this round we asked our forum members a series of questions about SimTV shows. In this round I'll be asking you three of those survey questions, and if your answer is in the top three poll answers you will gain between one and three points. You obviously won't be able to hear each other's answers. The player with the least points after this round will be eliminated from the game. The first question was to name a character from Pleasantview. I'm looking for first names only. Raymond?
Raymond:
Bella.
Darren:
May?
May:
Mary-Sue.
Darren:
Jerry?
Jerry:
Daniel.
Darren:
And lastly Joanne.
Joanne:
Cassandra.
Darren:
You've all given different answers, so at least one of you will be scoring no points. Let's see the answers given by the poll...

Darren: Ok, so at the top was Bella scoring Raymond three points. May you get two points for your answer of Mary-Sue. Joanne you score one point for saying Cassandra. Jerry, there's no points for you this round.

Darren: The second question was to name a show host. Let's hear the answers, starting with Raymond.
Raymond:
You, Darren.
Darren:
Thank you Raymond! May?
May:
Mr Love.
Darren:
A great host he is too. Jerry?
Jerry:
Davina.
Darren:
I knew you'd say that with being a Sim Brother fan. Lastly, Joanne?
Joanne:
Mr Love.
Darren:
Ok, let's see the poll results.

Darren: Mr Love was at the top of the poll so May and Joanne each score three points. Davina came in second scoring two points for Jerry, and I was last... saving the best till last if you ask me... so Raymond get's one point.

Darren: It's now time for the final question of this round. After this question one player will be eliminated from the game. The final question was to name a character from Sim Hospital. Raymond, who do you think?
Raymond:
Mary.
Darren:
May?
May:
Laura.
Darren:
Jerry?
Jerry:
Dan.
Darren:
And Joanne?
Joanne:
Laura.
Darren:
Let's see the answers...

Darren: Laura was, of course, at the top after everything she went through in the first series. Joanne and May both score top marks again. Mary was second scoring Raymond two points. Jerry, you get one point for your answer of Dan. It's now time to see the scores at the end of this round...

Darren: May is currently at the top with eight points. Well done May. Second is Joanne with seven points, followed by Raymond with six points. Unfortunately for you Jerry, with only three points, you're going home.

Jerry: Ah well, I guess I don't know as much about TV shows as I thought I did.
Darren:
Have you enjoyed yourself?
Jerry:
Absolutely. To actually be on a SimTV show is a great honour. Thanks for having me!
Darren:
You're welcome. Good bye Jerry.

Darren: It's now time for our second round called Name that SimTV character. We'll be showing the players distorted images of characters from SimTV shows and all they have to do is buzz in and give their character name. Each correct answer is worth one point, but with only three characters to guess, and the points so close, anyone could become the next player eliminated. Let's get on with it. Here comes the first character...

Darren: Here is our first SimTV star. Buzz as soon as you know.
Raymond:
(Buzzes)
Darren:
Raymond?
Raymond:
Is it Skip Broke from Pleasantview?
Darren:
What? Skip.. No, that's incorrect! Your not allowed to try again now. Come on everyone else. I'm going to have to give a clue soon..
May:
(Buzzes) Is it Richard from Sim Street?
Darren:
Of course it is! Well done May, you gain a point. Ok, get ready for the next character...

Joanne: (Buzzes) Mary from Sim Hospital.
Darren: Not a moments hesitation! Well done Joanne. Sim Hospital really is your favourite show. Take a point. Raymond, I'm afraid you've already lost, but here is the final star for you to at lease edge a little closer to the others, if you can...

Darren: Well, it's a woman...
May:
(Buzzes)
Darren:
May, what do you reckon?
May:
Oh, what is her name.. thingy, from Sim Street.
Darren:
Thingy? No, it's not thingy, and she isn't from Sim Street either.
Raymond:
(Buzzes) Is it Tara from Rich Sims?
Darren:
That's correct Raymond, but I'm afraid you're still going home.

Raymond: That's alright Darren. I've had a fantastic day, and now I can go home and watch TV. Thanks for a great day.
Darren:
You're welcome. Goodbye Raymond. May and Joanne, please join me for the final round.

Darren: Ok ladies, you've both made it to our final round, and one of you will become the shows winner. You've been here for a while now... have you not wondered about today's prize?
Joanne:
I thought it would be the honour of winning.
May:
Are we not going through to the prize fund game?
Darren:
No. Today's winner will actually get to guest star in a SimTV show!
Joanne:
Oh wow! Which one?
May:
That's amazing.
Darren:
One of you will appear in Pleasantview series three.
Joanne:
I love Pleasantview!
May: I really want that prize Darren.
Darren:
Well lets get on with our pathway game. The first player to the end of their pathway wins. At each level you must choose one of the two squares. You'll be shown a symbol allowing you to move on, stop or answer a question.
Joanne:
We understand.
May:
We're fans of the show after all!
Darren:
Of course you understand. Let's get this game started. Both please step onto one of your first tiles.

At the first level Joanne had to stop while May was allowed to continue. She now has to stop, passing the game back to Joanne.
Darren: Ok Joanne, make a choice, and lets hope it's the right one this time.

Joanne is met with a question symbol, and she must now answer a question correctly in order to move on and keep control of the game.
Darren:
Name one of the two families which arrived in Sim Street series three.
Joanne:
The Grass Family were one of them.
Darren:
That's right. You don't have to get this right, but I'm just testing you... do you know the other family?
Joanne:
Of course I do. The Layton family.
Darren:
Well done! Ok move on.

Joanne get's one more continue before having to pass the game over to May. May moves forward to a question symbol.
Darren:
Ok May, to keep control of the game, name one paramedic from Sim Hospital.
May:
Oh god.. it's gone straight out of my head. Erm, I can't think... Dan?
Darren:
Dan is a nurse. The answer was either Bethany or Chris.
May:
Oh yeah! Can't believe I forgot.
Darren:
I'm afraid the game passes back to Joanne now.

Joanne progresses forward two more times, and is now a question away from reaching the final row and winning the game.
Darren:
If you get this question right, and then make one final correct choice, you'll win.
Joanne:
Yep.
Darren:
Name one member of the Kent family in Lakeside?
Joanne:
Sandra.
Darren:
No hesitation at all. You're       one choice away from winning...

Darren: ...but that was the wrong choice.
Joanne:
Damn.
Darren:
You'll now have to wait until May loses control of the game to move over to the other tile. May, your 5 choices away, but if you can make five correct choices you could still win. Good luck.
May:
Thank you Darren.

May makes two correct choices, before the game has to be passed back to Joanne, who now wins.
Darren:
Congratulations Joanne! You're going to be a guest star in Pleasantview.
Joanne:
Oh my god, I can't believe I'm going to be in Pleasantview. This is amazing!
Darren:
May, I'm sorry.
May:
That's ok. I'm happy for Joanne and look forward to seeing her on the show!
Darren:
So do I. Thanks for watching everyone. Take part in the final interactive quiz now, which is also based on SimTV, and the champion of the series will be revealed a week later on the home page. I'll be seeing you again sometime soon. Good bye!
