Wheel of Fortune
One of the most popular TV game shows is 'Wheel of Fortune', which has been running for more than three decades now. The game format involves turning a wheel and guessing the word puzzle simultaneously. If you have been watching television for long, I am sure that you don't need an explanation of the game play. There are a few websites that let you play this game online and one that provides this game as a software, which can be installed on your smartphone. Check it out.
Another quiz game show, that involves answering a series of continuous questions, is the British TV Game show - 'Weakest Link'. You can play this game online, on a website, when you feel like you are up for some serious trivia.
Jeopardy is a quiz game that tests your knowledge on various different subject areas. It has a unique format, whereby, instead of questions, the contestants are provided with answers, from which they must reverse engineer appropriate questions. Personally, I love this innovative format. To play these games online for free, you can either visit websites or download its software. Jeopardy is made available as a software program. Try out the trial version for free and if you are really hooked, buy it.
Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Perhaps, one of the most popular shows in the world, 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' is an all time hit. Hundreds of rags-to-riches stories have made this program a part of television folklore. This game has the same format, when played online. You are asked trivia questions and the amount of 'virtual' money you earn, increases with every question that you answer, in a time period of 30 seconds. All the 'life lines' offered and other details are the same. You simply have to try it out and earn some 'virtual' cash.
What amazes us about these shows is the thrill and amazement of expecting the unexpected. Some of them like 'Who Wants to be A Millionaire' are entertaining and informative at the same time.
