Excerpt: A quarter of a million pounds. 22 identical sealed boxes. No questions except one…How many minutes before I get bored? If you’ve never seen Deal or No Deal before, it’s difficult to understand the fascination behind it. The contestants randomly select boxes, do they? Lasts for an hour, does it? Presented by Noel Edmonds, you say?
Pros: Great loyalty to the show, using the same sound, format and even a cast of characters behind those boxes. Good fun for the first few games!
Cons: With no real sense of risk, the game can become quite tedious, meaning you’re unlikely to be rushing back for more.
