500 Questions is a 7-day contest event. During that week, contestants--one at a time--try to answer questions in various categories. The questions are not multiple choice and there are no clues given. The variety of questions is good and they are not too obscure. If the player misses three questions in a row, he is gone.
The mechanics of the game are somewhat obscure. The host explains the fine points as the show progresses, like what it means when "Battle" comes on the big screen. Did I mention that there is a second contestant? Yes, another "genius", as they are described, waits in the shadows for the main contestant to fail. On "Battle" questions, they compete head to head. Honestly, I cannot criticize the show for explaining the fine points during gameplay. It would be too boring to explain them all upfront.
Some have complained that the pace of the game is too slow. By the second episode, I thought the pace was accelerating.
This show is probably not for anyone other than trivia/quiz show fans.
I have one criticism. I am not sure what happens if someone--unexpectedly--reaches 500 questions.
