Because we're hosting this event virtually, we'll need to rely on each family to listen to the rules carefully - this is very much based on the honor system! So…

  • For this virtual iteration of our popular campus game show, we'll compete in four different games, which means eight different families will get to play tonight. Each game will feature four rounds, including three regular rounds and the ever-popular Fast Money round. The winning family will receive tickets to one event of their choice before May 2024. If they also win the Fast Money round by exceeding 200 points, they'll win cold, hard cash!
