Legally Not Snatch Game 2020 Rules

We’ve heard some people say this event seems rather familiar, but we can assure you it’s all pure coincidence! Anivents Unlimited presents a new late-night game show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! Eight contestants must stretch the limits of their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to match our guests’ responses to questions and snatch themselves a victory! Wait… you say you’ve heard that line before? ¡Escándalo!

How it Works:

  • Legally Not Snatch Game is based on the classic TV show, Match Game, where contestants attempt to match our guests’ answers to fill-in-the-blank questions.
  • You can find a well-known example of another game show, also based on Match Game, here.
  • This event is in-character, so contestants will be expected to act and answer questions as the characters that they are cosplaying.
  • The host will direct a question to one guest at a time. All contestants and the guest must then write down their responses at the same time.
  • Contestants must match the guest’s answers in order to gain points.
  • If any contestant produces a matching answer, the guest for that question gets a point.
  • The catch (or snatch, if you will): Points are not actually tracked and have no bearing on which contestant wins the event. The winner is selected by audience applause based on their in-character acting and/or comedy skills.
  • Contestants will have the opportunity to win not just a Large Prize voucher for the Tsukino-Con Prize Room, but also a Gold Pass for Tsukino-Con 2021, valued at $100!
