Now, for those of you who have no clue what Double Dare is, it was a family game show that aired on Nickelodeon from 1986-1993. There were two versions of the show, Double Dare and Family Double Dare. The first version paired two kids against each other and the other paired a family with four members against each other.
To play the game teams would go through several trivia rounds and the end of those rounds the team with the most points would go on to the obstacle course. During the trivia rounds, one team would be asked a question. They had the chance to answer the question to earn some points or Dare their opponents to answer the question. If successful, the opposing team would earn more points for answering the question on a Dare or send it back on Double Dare where the original team could answer for even more points. If any team answered the question incorrectly, control of the board would change over to their opponent. However, if a team wanted to, they could opt out of answering the question and take on a physical challenge, but only a Double Dare.
At the end the game, the team with the most points would win the game and go on to take on the obstacle course for a chance at even more prizes.
It was one of those shows you had to see to believe it, and as a kid growing up in the 90’s it was one of the game shows you always wanted to be on. Now it and it’s original host will be back for one special night. Even the giant nose prop will make an appearance! There is no word if Robin will be there. If you can’t be there in person to see it all, don’t worry. The entire event will be streamed live on Facebook on Friday, July 22 at 6:30 PM EST.
