Ring Of Games
Ring Of Games is a series of special trivia games based on the British BBC series Richard Osman’s House Of Games, hosted by The Captain. Each episode usually consists of nine unique rounds each with a special set of rules, with the winner going on to challenge the Max Wrestling Television Champion - the original episode crowned the first ever Television Champion.
Due to the length, the Ring Of Games usually takes up an entire Pre-Launch Show two days before a special event. In the summer of 2022, weekly Ring Of Games bouts are planned to take place for four straight weeks, with a reduced number of rounds, and the overall winner receiving a Television Championship match at Fight For The Knowledge.
And The Answer Isn’t
Each player is given a multiple choice question with four possible answers. One is the correct answer, the other three have been written by their opponents. If the player fails to answer correctly, the point goes to the opponent who wrote the chosen answer.
The traditional final round in House Of Games (however, not introduced to Ring Of Games yet.) Players are shown an image and asked an unrelated question, and must combine the answers. (e.g. “Mr. Anderson” and “Sonny Kiss” becomes “Mr. Andersonny Kiss”)
But What Is The Question?
Players are given an answer and must match it to the correct question.
Each player is shown a statement, but one word is wrong. They must determine which word is wrong and what it needs to be changed to for the point. (Yet to be played.)
Face Or Heel?
Each player must guess a wrestler’s identity based on one-word clues provided by their opponents (also by Dazzy if there are only 3 players). If guessed correctly, the player receives a point and must also decide to either award a point to the best clue or remove a point from the worst clue.
In House Of Games, this is “The Nice Round” - so called because there is no points removal in that original format, this was added for Ring Of Games.
Games Of Ring The
Players are asked a question with a multiple word answer, but must answer in alphabetical order
I'm Terrible At Dating
Players are asked a question to which the answer is a year and write down their answers. The player with the closest answer wins a point, and a bonus point for the exact answer.
It's All In A Name
In turn, each player is asked a question where the answer contains letters from their own name. Two points are awarded for the correct answer. If the player is wrong or timed out, it can be passed over to other players for one point.
In House Of Games, this is a buzzer round where players receive two points for buzzing in and answering correctly on their own name.
Random buzzwords from a wrestler's entrance song appear scattered across the screen. When a player thinks they know the answer, they must yell "Stop", The Captain them asks them for an answer.
This is an original game created for Ring Of Games and not featured on the original House Of Games.
My Perfect Match
Each player is shown two wrestlers and two facts, they must determine which wrestler both facts belong to. (Yet to be played.)
Players are asked two questions, the answers to both questions rhyme with each other.
Players are asked an ambiguous question and must write down the longest answer for a point. A bonus point is given for the longest possible answer. (Yet to be played.)
You Spell Terrible
Players are asked a question in turn. If they answer correctly, they receive a point. That player then selects an opponent to spell the answer, if the opponent spells correctly, they receive a point also. However, if the opponent spells wrong, they lose a point to the other player. This is different from the original House Of Games format, where this round is a team game and teams only get a point if one person answers correctly and their partner spells correctly. The format was changed in Ring Of Games to accommodate the 3-player situation and to make it more interesting.
There’s No “I” In Dazzy
Each player take turns to choose on answer to a certain category, but each round has a particular letter that answers cannot include. Play continues until all but one have been eliminated.
The Rich List
Players must write down an answer to a certain category, and all players receive a point providing no one has written the same answer - including Dazzy who writes down his own answer.
(The player in last place chooses their partner, if there is an uneven number of players, it becomes a handicap match)
All In The Details
Each player filled in specific details before the show which will give their partner clues to an answer. The clues may not be accurate though as the players must fill in the details without help. (Yet to be played.)
Don't State The Obvious
(The team version of The Rich List.)
Each player is given a wrestler or match type they must describe to their partner by writing down only three words. If the partner guesses correctly, they both win a point. However if the opposing team have written any of the same three words, they block any points being scored. (Yet to be played.)
Players are asked a numerical question and the closest number to the actual answer wins a point - a bonus point is given for the exact answer, which is often very difficult to do. Team answers are combined to give an average.
Here's One Your Partner Asked Earlier
Before the show, each player is asked to recite a question backwards. The question is then later played for their partner - but the audio is played in reverse. The partners must decipher the question and answer correctly to earn them both a point. (Yet to be played.)
In House Of Games, this is a singles round where players must decipher their own questions.
It’s Not Me, It’s You
(Can only be played with an even number of players)
Each team are asked to write down a word each. In 90 seconds, they are then asked a series of questions in which the answer belongs to one of the players. If the correct answer is held up, the team get a point, if the wrong answer is held up, they do not receive a point. If both answers are held up at the same time, they lose a point. (Yet to be played.)
Players must decipher a wrestler’s password based on two clues, they have 3 attempts before being locked out.
Ring Der Speil
Players must choose a category and answer a question about that category - however, the categories and questions are in foreign languages. If there are only three players, it becomes a handicap match.
