This is the Junior version of the hit television game show, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? It's aimed at 8 to 12 year olds and is suitable for 2-5 players.
Players take turns to act as question master while the others try to win more and more money by answering fun questions. Players use their own hand-held display modules containing the questions and the object of the game is to be the first player to win a million pounds, or to be the wealthiest player after a pre-determined number of rounds.
As on television, if a player gets stuck for an answer, lifelines can be used-"50-50" (the question master deletes two incorrect answers and the player chooses one from the remainder); "Ask the Audience" (other players show what they think the answer is--hopefully); and, of course, you can still "Phone a Friend." (telephone not included)
This is a perfect introduction to the adult version and it creates an opportunity for younger players to experience the tension and excitement of being either the question master or a participant in this very popular game. The question cards are pitched at a good level for this age group, and they can be used with those from the adult edition if desired. Great fun for pre-teens who want to have a go at the game, but would find the adult edition too difficult. --Susan Naylor
