The Guinness Game was a short-lived syndicated game show based on The Guinness Book of World Records.

FormatEdit

Three studio contestants tried to predict if a record-breaking stunt, performed live on the show, could be accomplished (ex: "Can five men change four tires on a car without a jack, in two minutes or less?"). Each player started with $1,000 and could bet up to ninety percent of his or her bankroll. The player with the most money after three rounds won the game and played a fourth round for a bonus prize.

The maximum possible cash a player could win was $6,859, assuming s/he placed a maximum bet on each stunt and was correct all three times.

MusicEdit

Main - "Tickler" by Charles Fox (also used in The Moneymaze)
Prize - "Bean Bag" by Herb Alpert (also used in the UK Game Show It's a Knockout)
