Synopsys: A knowledge-based quiz game show based on the logic of Russian roulette, but where luck and strategy are as effective as knowledge on winning. 8 contestants assembled around a table are challenged to answer the host's questions. In each round, the first contestant to hit their buzzer and answer a question correctly is asked to nominate 1 of the other contestants to come under the roulette wheel to face potential elimination. The roulette mechanism is then rotated over the penalized contestant who is then required to pull a cord above them – if they are then saturated in liquid, they are eliminated from the game. If a contestant answers a question incorrectly, the roulette mechanism rotates above them, and they are subject to potential elimination.
