He-Man vs Heavy Metal
Last night I appeared as a contestant on'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 ('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.
