Front Game Rules
||A team of six men did battle against a team of six women. The challenging team was read a question, and one member of the team looked at the answer. Then that player would either give the answer or a bluff to the opposing side. Members of the other team were asked, one by one, whether they agreed or disagreed with the answer given. If successful, the question reader and one other member of his/her team was out of the game, and the other team took control. Otherwise, the two players who got fooled were knocked out. The team that could knock out all 6 players from the other side won the game and $1000.
End Game Rules
||The end game was played between 30 members of the opposite sex in the audience. Play was similar to the front game; a question was asked, one team member gave an answer, and the audience decided to agree or disagree. Any players that were fooled were eliminated from the rest of the bonus round. Each team member got one chance to knock out as many people as possible, and if all 30 audience members were fooled, the team won $5000. If any audience members were still standing after 6 questions, they split $500.
Loogaroo Looks it Over
This is a neat little game. Granted, some of the execution was a bit tacky, but it didn't get in the way of the game too much. The concept of having two hosts was a smart one, as each team now had a coach. The bonus round was also well thought-out, and even though it went a little slow, it's exciting to watch the final question with just 1 person left in the audience. And I know I'll catch some heat for this, but I thought the theme music is kinda cute. It's too bad this show didn't last longer.
