Champion's Chase is a special trivia game based on the British ITV series The Chase, hosted by The Captain. Traditionally, the Champion's Chase takes place during the annual special event Trivia Takeover, designed for the Max Wrestling Knowledge Championship.
The game varies from its original format in several ways. Filling the role of "The chaser" is the Knowledge Champion at the time. Instead of money, the prize at stake in the preliminary rounds is time, and should more than one person outrun the champion, they compete against each other to crown a new Knowledge Champion.
As of 2021, no Champion has retained in the Champion's Chase. In 2022, the Jester's Justice was announced as an optional challenge for the Champion's Chase winner.
Each player begins by answering as many questions as possible in one minute. Each correct answer is worth one point, each point is worth ten seconds of time in the Final Dash.
Face The Champ
Immediately after each Time Builder, players will have to answer enough questions to bank their points without being caught by the Champion. From the starting point, players must have five correct answers to make it home. The Champion moves onto the board after the first question, allowing the player to get at least three questions wrong before being caught. Prior to the round, the Champion will give each player the options of taking a step closer to home for less points or a further step away from home for more points.
The Final Dash
Once all players have faced the Champion one on one, however many have made it home without being caught team up to answer as many questions correctly in the time won depending on the amount of points banked. They are also given a head start of the amount of players in the final team (ie. If all four players survived, they will have a four step head start.)
The Champion will then have ten seconds on top of the same time to beat the score set by the team. The Champion retains if they are able to match the score.
If the surviving challengers manage to outrun the champion in The Final Dash, the champion loses their title. The challengers then face each other to crown a new champion.
