I watched it only once. Cracked myself up, I kept yelling at the people on the TV! Kind of an exciting game though.

Ooooooooooh I LOVE this show! It's quite addictive to watch. Always feel really nervous for the contestant when they are going for a big one.

I HATE Howie Mandell but after 5 minutes of watching for the first time last night, I was hooked

I love this show. Lots of yelling at the tv from me telling the contestant to take the deal!

That Mayor last night nearly got caught!

I saw this when I was in Australia..........it was much better. They randomly select a group in the stands and a person from that group plays the game. The group then are the ones that unveil the suitcases. If they guess the right amount of money, they win $1000. Also, you bring a friend with you, so they'd also be in the group when you're playing (they help you make decisisons and you obviously don't want to open their case until they end so they have a better chance at guessing correctly). The show is only a half hour long, live, and has less pointless "drama"...........

So yeah, the American version is a bore.

I'm ashamed to admit how much time I've wasted playing this.

I didn't think it would take long before all the international versions of this gameshow would come out. Can't beat the original!

it is very addictive though. far better than millionaire or the weakest link.

Is there any thinking involved with this game, or is it just a guessing game?

It's pure guesswork. the only thinking involved is whether to take the offer of Deal Or No Deal!

Guessing and a bit of knowledge of math/probability to determine whether or not to "take the deal".

Thanks for the link Vintage! Made the mistake of showing my mom though who is pretty addicted to the tv show. Sure she's going to spend hours online now playing this game

This is a great show. I watch it every Monday and Friday but I have one problem: no one ever wins big money. Everyone gets too greedy and they end up going one step too far. I think they need to have someone win 1,000,000 just to show that it's not rigged. I still watch it all the time though

I thought the same thing about the people getting greedy, especially if they turn down a good deal.

Especially last week. The one show where the guy had an offer for $76,000 turned it down.. then opened a case with the last big amount and wound up going home with 8 bucks.
