Storyline

Six players compete as a team to win up to $1 million by answering logic/riddle-type questions. The players have 60 seconds to discuss each question, after which the team captain has to respond. Three forms of help are available, each of which can be used once: an extra 30 seconds of discussion time, switching the question out for a replacement, or rejecting the captain's answer and changing it. Cash awards range from $6,000 for the first question up to $1 million for the tenth. If the team misses a total of four questions, the game ends and they leave with nothing. After any correct answer, the team can vote to end the game, but a unanimous vote is required in order to stop. Written by Alan Back

Finally, a game show that involves thinking
10 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Unlike Millionaire and any of the googolplex of spin off trivia shows, MDMG requires more thought rather than knowledge. You can play right along at home, trying to twist your brain around the riddles posed and not get trapped in the box of prior guesses. When you hear the right answer you did not get, the temptation is strong to kick yourself, since there is no superhuman genius required to get the answer, only lateral thinking.

Layered atop the awesome brainteasers are the more conventional game show rules that make for good drama and escalating tension. All in all, MDMG is the only game show on these days that is worth watching.
