He-Man vs Heavy Metal

Last night I appeared as a contestant on +Ryan Estrada's new game show, Asking For Trouble. It's a quiz show where the topics are tailored to the expertise of the contestants, only the topic titles misdirect to the other contestant's field of expertise!

So in this first show, the topics were He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (my topic) and Heavy Metal (+Rob Stenzinger's topic). But when I chose the category "I have the Power," I was given questions about power ballads. When Rob chose the topic "Skeletons in the Closet," he was given Skeletor trivia questions.

Probably the most fun aspect of the show were the cheats. We are given 5 opportunities to cheat between the two of us (kind of like Lifelines on Millionaire , but the host gets to administer what the cheat is via random pick. So you may get to phone a friend, or you may have to use AOL to search for your answer.

It's really neat to see Google Hangouts used in this way. I've been excited about the technology since it came out, and look forward to seeing what other ways people will use it to create fun content.

    Just finished watching. But I felt like Bill Murray in Scrooged watching his brother playing trivia pursuit but unable to chime in with the S.S. Minnow. 🙂

    ALSO: Loved the pixel art of you guys too.

    Well +Dave Roman , I am looking for future guests! Let me know if you wanna be on, and if there’s someone you want to challenge! I do have a Christmas special round hidden behind one of those misdirecting categories!
