“As a small school we’re always looking for events with big impact that fit our small budget. We “lucked” into the Amazing Game Show… The students loved the games, and the trivia questions were perfect for our college students. The games ran quickly and due to some questions where the students could bet as much (or as little) as they wanted, nobody was ever out of the game until the last question. …I know this will be a main stay for our campus for years to come. ”
