THE REAL DEAL!
Now, ALL the family can join in the fun with the fantastic new DEAL OR NO DEAL board game
Its part gameshow, part psychological thriller. Its a nail-biting, stomach-knotting test of nerves. Who can stay in the game down to the last two boxes? Who will succumb to the lure of the Bankers crafty offers? Whos got the bottle to go to the wire?
Its for you-hoo Watch everyone jump to the ceiling when, after five choices, the phone suddenly starts to ring . Yes, its the Banker. Hes ringing with his first cash offer, which is displayed on the telephones screen. Each player then has to answer the question DEAL OR NO DEAL? If the answer is no deal, the players carry on, right down to the final two boxes, just like in the TV show. By this time, no one will have any fingernails left to bite!
|If youre a fan (and currently up to 4 million or more viewers tune in to Channel 4 every weekday - and Saturday evenings as well) youll know that every day 22 expectant contestants pair up with 22 sealed boxes, each containing a sum between 1p and the top prize of £250,000. Then one player is chosen he or she carefully selects one box at a time, to reveal and eliminate a cash prize until all but two are left. The tension mounts as the sums are struck off the scoreboard. The audience cheers when the smaller amounts go, and groans with disappointment if a large sum is chosen. During the game, the Banker rings the telephone on host Noel Edmonds desk and makes an offer to buy the players own box. Will the player gamble that their box contains a higher amount? Will it be Deal or No Deal?|
The actual gameplay is a cinch for anybody whos ever watched the TV show which of course means that Deal or No Deal is a game that all the family can play. You start by laying the 22 money tokens, representing the prize amounts ranging from 1p to £250,000, face down on the table, mixing them up, and placing them at random into the 22 red boxes (no peeking!). Each player is given four answer cards (Deal, No Deal, Swap and Stick), and the Bankers electronic phone is placed on the game board.
The youngest (or oldest, if you prefer youre in charge!) player starts by selecting one box and places it onto the white table next to the scoreboard. This is the prize box everybodys playing for.
Also on the board is the Bankers phone which naturally is a big retro replica of the one on which Noel converses with the unseen Banker on the TV show. Play proceeds with the next player selecting the first box to be opened; this is done by the player to their left, and is the opportunity for any amount of amateur dramatics! The value inside the box is covered on the scoreboard - hopefully itll be low and blue, but if its got to be red, all players will want to steer clear of the biggest amounts, the power five.
Can you Beat the Banker? Now comes the really clever bit. Each time a money amount is revealed its entered into the Bankers phone; and after the fifth amount has been entered, the Banker makes his first offer, which is displayed on the screen of the telephone. Each player must then decide whether to accept the offer or hold out for a higher amount Deal or No Deal.
A player indicates his or her decision by placing the relevant card face down on the table. Those who choose to deal write down their prize money amount for that game on the score pad provided; those who refuse the deal carry on, with the Banker then offering further deals after every third box is opened. (If lucks against them, however, the Bankers offers might well go down instead of up!) When only two boxes are left, players can use their cards and choose to swap or stick, just like on the TV show. The winner is the player with the highest money total after six games.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and bad design with dodgy boxes!!! 16 Oct 2006
Game is fun but trust me your in for a shock when you open the box
It contains 44 pieces of card that you need to make into boxes, But do not worry the box says it takes just 10 mins to do!!...... trust me it takes a lot longer and at the end some of the boxes need selotape to hold them together and they all look slightly different meaning one you start playing you start to remember which one is which, Ok if it was real cash lol
The telephone is also of a very poor standard and the voice is not noel edmonds but just a guy with a very anoying voice (simular to a cheap musical birthday card etc)
One you have finished "making" the game and played it, trying to get it back in the box is strange as there seems to be no logical place to fit it all in, Its a challange to close the lid
Saldly this game really is very cheap and of very poor design but of course it can be fun if playing in a group etc, not sure just how long the boxes will last thought
Come on guys sort it out!! you can do better than that im sure!! maybe give monopoly a call for some advice!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Deal or no Deal 26 Nov 2006
Good game once you get going but for the price, very poor quality.
The boxes are shoddy, the cover cards are a nuisance as some creased as we tried to seperate them.
We are very dissapointed. The boxes should have been plastic, maybe the cover cards could have been sliders that cover the numbers in the middle of the board and the deal, no deal, swap and no swap cards are just not needed.
The voice on the phone, so irritating and annoying.
It seems to us that the makers just ran out a cheap rubbish product because the show is so popular.

4.0 out of 5 stars The boxes are now plastic 9 Jan 2008

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars
After reading many reviews on this game, I was a little concerned by the "building of the boxes" as I would like all the boxes to look the same and knowing my handy work, they would all be completely different - ruining the game.
However I recently purchased this game and to my surprise found that the boxes are now little plastic boxes, and so no building work required at all.
My first impressions of this game are great; it is well presented and is good value for money at this cheap price. I cannot wait to start playing!
