Announcer: And now, from IBN's studios in new salisbury, its the quiz of the week!

As the doors to the set open, out of the smoke comes the announcer, Glenn Parsons

Announcer: hi, im glen parsons, and welcome to the nationstates version of the worlds richest quiz, sale of the century, the yanks have had it, the aussies have had it, the kiwis have had it, even the greeks have had it! now it our time for out version of the worlds richest quiz, sale of the century!

1. Number of competitiors: up to 5 per country, here is the sign up form:

Location:
Name of contestant (no groups are allowed):
Age:
Occupation:
Short bio:

2. Rules: All contestants are spotted with $20 to start. The host reads a trivia question to the three contestants (one of which was usually the winner of the previous show). The first to press a buzzer gets an opportunity to answer the question (even if the host is still in the middle of reading the question). Players' scores increase by $5 for each correct answer and decrease by $5 for each incorrect answer. If a player answers incorrectly, the correct answer is revealed and the game goes on to the next question - that is, only one person can try to answer each question.

After the first round, A longer-format question generally known as the "Who am I?" question was asked once in each of the three rounds. Here, a succession of increasingly larger clues were given to the identity of a famous person, place, or event. In this round, players could buzz in and answer at any time, without penalty for an incorrect answer. However, each player only had one chance to answer, if you get it right you get $10.

After the second round, there is Cashcard, an opportunity for the leading contestant to either win a cash prize equivalent to perhaps a month's average wages for a middle-class Australian at the time, earn the opportunity to win a car later in the game (see section on major prizes), receive the score he/she sacrificed back, or reduce the score of a competitor slightly. This cost a player $15 to play.

Four playing cards (the Aces of each suit) were presented; the player selected one, and it was turned over to reveal one of four elements:
"$15": Gave the player the money back.
"Joker": worth a "booby prize"; essentially a worthless card.
"Prize": A bonus prize, usually worth between $2,000-$3,000.
"Cash Card": A growing jackpot that began at $5,000 and increased by $1,000 each night it wasn't won.

At the end of the third round, A series of six prizes was offered, culminating in a car. A contestant could take his or her cumulative winnings, buy a prize, and retire, or elect to return the next day and try to win enough to buy the next most expensive prize.

After that, well thats it for tonights preview episode of NSOTC, see you at the first episode, bye for now.
