ABOUT GAME NIGHT
Game Night attempts to give everybody the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of TV quiz and game shows through the platform Twitch. What started out with streaming a Unity-made version of Countdown has now developed into a "cinematic universe" of both recreated classic TV game shows and original quiz formats. With a mixture of both mass-multiplayer and hotseat-focused shows, Game Night gives anybody with a Twitch account the chance to experience the thrill of TV quizzing. Shows air on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 8pm BST and on Thursdays at 3pm BST on Twitch.

QUESTION WRITING & COMMUNITY
Much of the trivia for Game Night is community-powered. For some shows, such as Blockbusters, The Code & Face/Off, the number of questions is not fixed for any given episode. These shows use a central database of specifically tailored questions.
The rest of the shows use a bespoke question pack, written for that particular episode. If you'd like to contribute, you can download the question writing tool and write your own questions to feature on Game Night. If you'd like tips on how to write effective questions, or advice on how to tailor your questions towards a particular show, join the Discord and get the Question Writer role.
The community has a channel currency called Pennys (no, that isn't a typo). Players earn Pennys by participating in the shows. For some shows, bonus Pennys are awarded to winning players. For others, players get their scores entered onto the global leaderboard for eternal glory and bragging rights. At the end of each season, all Pennys are entered into a draw, with a handful of players winning a selection of prizes.
