  • If a team provides an incorrect answer, it receives a strike. Three strikes result in the other team having the chance to steal the round by providing a correct answer. If they steal, they get all the points for that round.  
  • The team that wins a round accumulates the points associated with the survey answers they guessed. These points contribute to their overall score.  
  • The game typically consists of several rounds, and the team that accumulates the most points at the end of the game is declared the winner. They may have the opportunity to play a bonus round for additional prizes.

Mechanic:

  • Participants must register here before the event. 
  • There will be three teams (1 College, 1 SHS, and 1 Staff/Faculty), consisting of four members that will play the game.  
  • There are 27 identical sealed briefcases, each containing a different monetary amount. The amounts inside the cases are usually hidden from the player. The values can vary from very low (1 peso) to very high (5,000 pesos).  
  • The players of each team begin by selecting one of the 27 briefcases, which becomes their own. The chosen case is placed on each group’s podium.  
  • The player then proceeds to open the remaining briefcases one by one. After each round, a specified number of cases are opened, and the amounts in those cases are revealed. The goal is to eliminate cases with lower amounts, increasing the odds of having a high value in the player’s chosen case.  
  • There will be a total of 5 rounds in the game, and in each round, a mysterious figure, known as the “banker”, makes the contestant an offer to buy their briefcase, based on the values of the remaining briefcases.  
  • The contestant must decide whether to “Deal” and accept the banker’s offer or “No Deal” and continue to the next round. If they choose “Deal,” they win the offered amount, and the game ends. If they choose “No Deal,” they proceed to the next round.  
  • The game continues in rounds with additional briefcase selections and banker offers until the contestant decides to take a deal or is left with only four unopened briefcases (1 for each group and 2 remaining briefcases for selection). At that point, they have the choice to switch their chosen case with the last remaining unopened cases or keep their original selection.  
  • The contestant opens the last remaining unopened briefcase, revealing the cash amount inside. If the amount in their selected briefcase is higher than the banker’s final offer, they win that amount. If not, they leave with the amount of the last offer.

First round: Relay Games  

The 3 teams will have their own station where they will finish all the games one by one. Once the 1st player finishes the last game, he/she will ring the bell indicating that the next player can start. Each team can decide the order of the players. The following are the games for the relay:  

  1. Sangkayaw (Coconut shell race)

This game involves coconut shells tied to strings, with one end held by the player’s hands. The player should reach the end line without their feet touching the ground and if they fall, they must go back to the start line again.  

  1. Sipa

The players need to kick the ball of sipa (or tingga) 10 times without letting it fall to the ground. Once the tingga fell before reaching the 10th count, they need to restart counting again.  

  1. Karerang Sako (Sack race)

Players must go around the designated area with their feet inside the sack. If either of their feet touched the ground while jumping, they need to go back to the start line again. 

  1. Jack En Poy (Rock, paper, and scissor)

In this game, a facilitator will act as the opponent of the player. At the end of each line of the song*, they need to put their hands out at the same time in one of three signs, “Rock”, “Paper” or “Scissors”.  The player must win 5 points to move forward to the next game.  

*Song: Jack ‘n’ Poy, hale-hale-hoy! Sinong matalo s’yang unggoy! 

Each signs represents the following: 

  • Rock: Make a fist. 
  • Paper: Put out a flat hand horizontal to the ground. 
  • Scissors: Put out the index and middle finger imitating scissors. 

Basis on who won the round: 

  • Rock beats Scissors  
  • Scissors beats Paper

  1. Pitik Bulag

The player will close and cover their eyes with their hand, and the facilitator will gently flick a finger over the hand of the player while showing the number that the player needs to guess. The flicking will continue until the player guesses correctly. The facilitator will announce “NEXT” if the player guesses correctly and is an indication for the next number that the player needs to guess. The number that the player needs to guess is limited to 1-5 only. The player needs to guess 5 times correctly in order to move forward in the next game.` 

  1. Chinese Garter

Two facilitators will hold both ends of a stretched garter horizontally while the player will attempt to cross over it. The goal is to cross without having tripped on the garter.  The player needs to cross 2 levels: Waist and above the waist of the facilitator in charge in this game. 

Second Round: Patintero 

The two teams who won the 1st round will compete in this round. The team with the highest points will win. If their points get tied, there will be another round for a tie breaker. Toss coin will decide which team will be the runner or guard. 

Patintero 

  • The game starts with a toss of a coin to decide the team that becomes the guards or runners.  
  • The guards assign a player to the lateral line in the middle of the rectangle and the other players on each horizontal line.  
  • The objective of the runners is to get across to one end of the big rectangle and back without being touched or tagged by a guard.  
  • During the game, the guards should ensure they have both feet on the ground before tagging their opponent; otherwise, it will not count.  
  • Once a runner is tagged, he or she gets out of the game. If a runner makes it across the big rectangle and back without being touched with the butterfly fingers, they earn a point. 
  • Once there’s no runners left, it’s now the turn of the other team. Their roles will be switched. And the team with the least tagged players will win this game.
