Based on the popular TV series of the same name this program is a fairly faithful reproduction of the game. The first menu screen offers the ability to load up any of the seven sets of data supplied or one of your own, unfortunately the documentation had no details on how to produce such a file.

When you have loaded the questions and their punchlines you have the game screen displayed. There are the usual eight boxes, with their numbers displayed prominently, right across the screen. The punchlines are then displayed one by one with the number they hold. This could have been improved with the line being displayed on the box concerned, instead of at the bottom of the screen.

Questions follow one by one, each team has turns to guess the location. This is a fun game and will be ideal for a family get together over Christmas.

The questions cover a good range from original mixtures to special pop and soccer games. I can see this causing almost as much laughter In your living room as the original.
