Front Game Rules
Figure it Out is a panel show in which four celebrities try to discover a secret held by the contestant. This secret is hidden, word by word, on a large head known as "Billy the Answer Head." The game is divided into three one-minute rounds in which the panelists take turns asking yes/no questions. A celebrity must give up control if they get a "no," and they can pass if they want.
|Partway through each round, a clue is brought out to the panelists to help them on one of the words in the contestant's secret. When a word is spoken, it is revealed on Billy the Answer Head. For each round that the panel is unable to guess the secret, the contestant wins a prize. After three rounds, each panelist is allowed one final guess at the secret. If the panel is still stumped after three rounds, the contestant wins the grand prize.|
|After the first round of each game, the "Secret Slime Action" is activated. One member of the studio audience is given the chance to win a small prize if the Secret Slime Action is performed. When it is, a loud alarm sounds and the panelist(s) caught doing the action are slimed. Some of the SSAs have included "Saying the word 'something'", "Elbows on the table", "Touching another panelist" or "Wearing red".|
I'll say this right now: this is my favorite panel show. Still, that's not saying all that much. The gameplay is pretty good; the clues thrown in every round make things a little easier for the panelists, and the Secret Slime Action creates a good diversion. However, much of the problems are derived from the panelists. Some of them are good players, but others do nothing but waste time. That would be OK if the rounds weren't one minute long, but instead some of these idiots just HAVE to ask "Does it have something to do with cheese?" That's really the only thing I would change.
