Storyline

The player keeps answering questions trying not to get any wrong. If they get three incorrect answers, then the cab pulls over and they are dropped off wherever they are. They lose any money they would have won. The first four questions are worth $25 each, the next four questions are worth $50, and any question thereafter are worth $100. If a contestant has won more than $200 and the cab is forced to stop at a traffic light, the driver will start a Red Light Challenge. The driver will read a question that has multiple correct answers (usually five or more), and the passenger will then have 30 seconds to give a designated number of those answers (usually all five). Doing so is worth an additional $250 to the fare, and failure to answer the question will not count as a strike, so there is no risk. The passenger is allowed two "Shout-Outs" during the course of the trip, and each type can be used only once. The first type is the Mobile Shout-Out, in which the contestant is allotted a ...

Hey Hack, Can You Give Me A Ride To The In-Laws?
10 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ben Bailey hosts a 1 man / 1 Cab game show. It is a fun concept as it reverses the hailing a cab routine to an extent. You get in expecting to pay & find out that the ride is free as long as you don't get 3 strikes. You can even win money too. A sweet deal to say the least. I see there is a British version too. Would be fun if Bailey tried London & the Brit tried NYC.

This is a refreshing change of format for games. The questions are all over the place but with a shout out or a mobile shout out, you get lots of ways to try & answer the question. The Red Light challenge is fun though I am amazed with NYC traffic there aren't more of them. Must be limited to once a game I guess.

Wouldn't it be fun if Ben picked up a couple of street walking professionals? That would be the ultimate reverse, as they would be getting paid without having to work for it, wouldn't it? Biley is a great host & keeps it light for everybody. Lots of fun
