The topic is BUBBLE GUM. We’ve got a minute. List the first five kinds of bubble gum that you can think of. You make yours. I’ll make mine. And when you’re finished, rank them from 1-5. No, I don’t know how you should rank them, by your favorites, by what you think is the most popular. Wait. Let me correct that. List the five kinds of bubble gum that you think I’ll be able to think of. And then rank them the way you think I’ll rank them. OK? Here goes. I got: 1. Dubble Bubble, 5. Skittles, 2. Bubblicious, 3. Bazooka and 4. Bubble Yum. We get one point for each gum. And an extra point for each gum we ranked the same. OK. OK. So maybe Skittles really isn’t bubble gum. All that’s really important is that we both think it is.
You know, for a trivia-style game, this was kind of different. It’s about Pop culture, for one. For another, it’s fun. A lot more fun. One might almost say, to coin a phrase, Major FUN. It’s called WaveLength. What makes it so much more fun than your average trivia game? Three things: one, you’re not working alone, against everyone else. It’s you and your partner. Two: everybody plays, all the time. There’s quite literally, “never a dull moment.” And three, it’s not so much trivia as it what you might call “Family Feud meets the Match Game.” How “right” your answer is depends completely on what the other guy has to say. It’s a trivia game (over a thousand questions), but you’re all playing together, you’re actually trying to get more connected, trying to think like what you think the other guy’s thinking. It’s got all the ingredients of a good trivia game. It’s all about facts and memory. But it’s even more about connecting to the other guy; getting on, what you might call, the same “wavelength,” so to speak.
Major FUN-wise, Wavelength is what the award is all about.
