Since there is/are no boxed Seinfeld Trivia Game(s) out there (like Soprano's, Sex In The City, Friends, etc...)

Just a general question/discussion about...

How much would you pay for a game with 3 parts
---1. Over 3000 general questions
---2. Over 500 "in what episode did this happen?" questions
---3. Over 100 "who did/said this" type questions?

--No board, just points and a stop watch...(it would come with a real chrono stop watch too, not some douchey sand timer)
--Multiple choice (4 or 5 on each card)
--Less points awarded as each person makes guess

Of course, a "Scene It" game would be great but they would probably ONLY make it with like 400 crappy questions...

Perhaps game could be divided into 2 volumes (conveniently* released 1 year apart from each other)

Each volume one would have a spread of trivia from all 9 seasons

"Cooking up a real scheme here..."

A Seinfeld game would never appeal to die-hard Seinfeld fans because they would have to create it for the masses, making the questions so simple that we'd know the answers even after taking LSD.

For example: What was The Contest about?

a) non-fat yogurt
b) masterbation
c) soup

Playing it with other people would be like taking a karate class with small children.

Yes, levels

5 difficulties

Nearly 20 questions from each episode

For example:
Episode 808 – The Chicken Roaster

Where is Kramer meeting Newman & to help him pick out what

Name of Jerry’s college buddy he encounters on street

Number of years since they have seen each other

Class they used to “cut” all of the time

Name of their mutual friend

What does Kramer poor into cereal instead of milk

Name of Comic strip Jerry claims to have not read yet therefore not allowing his friend to take paper for want-ads

Name of girl George “dates” by leaving something behind in her apartment

What does George attempt to leave behind in her apartment

What does George actually leave behind

Where in her apartment does he leave it?

Store where she works

What does George steal from the girl’s apartment in lieu of getting the item back that he initially left behind

Name of Kramer’s puppet

Name of J. Peterman company accountant

What number is Newman holding for his order at Kenny Roger’s Roaster’s

What does Newman order that tips Jerry to the fact that Kramer is eating from Kenny Roger’s Roaster’s too

I suppose it is fine on a theoretical level to wonder the possibility of a game and what it might include. Don't get any ideas of marketing one, though, unless you enjoy gettting your ass sued by Jerry and/or Larry.

Oh Im sure your right but somebody has to write it

I mean Im sure no Sony executives or the Producers of the show are gonna sit down and write a zillion questions

Im sure if I created it or someone else did they would take full advantage of all the hard work that somebody put into writing for hours and hours and then pay them diddly

Some body writes the the questions of these other games

So, it's fair to say you've set different goals for yourself than say, Thomas Edison, Magellan, these types of people.

It's like the musicians with their fancy shoes. They'd be bee-boppin' and scatin' all over you.


Honestly, that would be a great idea. But with all trivia games, if you play it enough, you'll run out of questions especially if you have different levels of difficulty. They won't write 2,000 questions per level, maybe for the whole game. So, assuming 5 levels, just 400 questions per level.

169 regular episodes (162 1/2 hour episodes and 7 1 hour episodes), 20 GENERAL TRIVIA questions from each of the 169 episodes = 3380 questions of GENERAL TRIVIA (assorted levels depending on knowledge of show)

---PLUS---

169 regular episodes (162 1/2 hour episodes and 7 1 hour episodes), 5 "IN WHICH EPISODE DID..." questions from each of the 169 episodes = 845 questions of "IN WHICH EPISODE DID..." trivia (assorted levels depending on knowledge of show)

And perhaps some word association ones like:

Fur Coat (PUDDY, JOE MAYO, JERRY)

etc...

Well, don't forget to copyright your game that you have no legal right to copyright, so they don't steal your questions and use them without paying you, since they own the copyrights to all of that material in the first place....

See the paradox?

Maybe try opening up a pizza place where you can make your own pie..... or maybe invent a bladder for oil tankers.
