Hoodwinked - The Live Game Show

Hoodwinked is a game of bluff, deception & hilarity, hosted by Marcus Jones and played by an all-star rotating panel of comedians & other comically inclined personalities.

Hoodwinked is a cross between Blankety Blanks, Spicks & Specks, Whose Line is it Anyway? and nothing else you’ve ever seen (!!!).Using the same bluffing principle as board game "Balderdash" and the old "Dictionary" parlour game, Hoodwinked is NOT a test of knowledge. Players are NOT expected to know the real answers to any of the questions. Many of the real answers will seem unbelievable. The main objective is to concoct answers that will fool other players. The real battle is not over who wins, but who wins the biggest laughs.
