Okay, I figure it's about time... Lots of simple bits to this one, but it will make you think :)
Based on the ABC short lived game show "You Deserve It".
Designed for as a one player game.
1) Power point presentation (D'uh!)
2) Text file with any number of the following rows in repetition (repeat however many boards you want to play per game)
a - Correct Answer
b- Category of the Answer(Who, what or where?)
c1-c9: Nine clues about the Correct Answer
Step 1 - Click "Fill Board". This will load up the entire file into the system.
Step 2 - Click the "Round number" Button (in this case, it's the number next to the "fill board" (yes, I know, it's not user friendly, just remember how i run things as a show). This will load the first round of the board
This will make the 'answer' bar disappear at the bottom and it will total the prize slots over on the left (16,000 at the moment)
It'll then take the appropriate round number, load the puzzle.. in this case a "WHAT?" puzzle and randomly take 9 of the 10 values on the left and hide them behind the clues circles on the right.
The player selects one of the 9 clues, and the cost of the clue is revealed (1 of the 10 values) , and remove that from the prize pool from the board. (so if they choose clue #8 and it's worth 2000 points, the prize total drops to 14,000).
Step 3 - After the clue number is chosen, the "Clue cover" button is clicked to reveal the first clue, which will be put in the first slot on the middle of the board, as well as appear at the top of the screen.
Step 4- The player can then either try to guess at the answer, or if they dont' know, can pick another clue. At any point, if they guess and they guess incorrectly the board is over and no points are scored and you go to the next board.
Step 5- Whenver the player finally makes a guess at the puzzle, you click the clue at the top to reveal the correct answer
If they guessed the answer correctly, you're going to bank the pot by clicking on the pot number at the top, which will transfer and add that amount ot the bank at the bottom (which is locked away and cannot be lost). The process repeats for ever how many boards you have programmed and see how many points you can bank by the last board.
And if you can score the points required to win a prize.. well guess,what.... "YOU DESERVE IT!"
