    Yeah Yeah. Quiz + Taxi = Cool new fad that makes a shitload of money.

    Seriously, at least the Imagine games make sense as children games. But this?

    Probably based on a TV show. There's a similar one in Canada. The payout is really low; you get a free taxi ride to your destination and cash worth something like a dinner for two (slightly more).

    Is it really safe to pose for a boxart picture while driving? [​IMG]
    He's not watching the road or anything.
    I wouldn't want to be in this guy's taxi.

    It's not safe, and I don't think that shot was taken while he was driving.
    There's something we call parking.
    BTW, in my country, there's a show like this. And it's actually quite fun to watch.

    Hey this guy is cool.
    it`s a german tv show (popular on TV Kabel1)
    you call a taxi and when you`ve luck these guy come and you must answer questions and you take money for each right answer.
    it`s a quizshow in a taxi

    May be shovelware, haven´t checked it out yet (and I´m not really in a rush to check it out either), but I do like show! [​IMG]

    It´s basically "Who wants to be a Millionare?" on wheels. Depending on how long the trip is, and if the people have half a brain they can win some decent cash.

    Like in the €1,500 range. Without the chance of doubling the amount with the bonus question! Unfortunately not many people take the bonus question, ´cause it´s double or nothing. [​IMG]

    The "Driver" is the guy who does the show. He does other comedy stuff as well. Pretty funny guy actually. Can´t remember his name though. Thomas something or other.
