In the league’s quest to recreate just about every classic game show (I’m still waiting for NAKID Press Your Luck!), NAKID held its own version of Double Dare. But in true NAKID spirit, their version wouldn’t involve diving down the “Sundae Slide” or searching for a flag in a giant sandwich. No, the NAKID version naturally introduced copious amounts of beer to the games. (Although this might have not been that much of a change from the original concept as host Marc Summers may have been thoroughly sauced back in the day.)
One of the teams gathers to discuss an answer
The hosts for the festivities were NAKID Social Director Erin and her trusty sidekick Jay. Much like Pat Sajak and Vanna White, they were effective co-hosts, including the patronizing small talk between rounds.
Erin and Jay keep the peaceCompeting for a valuable prize package would be a group of sixteen teams with names such as Giggity, Camp Annawanna, and On a Scale of Anne Frank to Osama bin Laden, How Good Is My Hiding Place?
The format was similar to that of the show: One team would be asked a question, and they could either answer it or “dare” their opponents. The opposing team could either answer or “double dare” right back. The first team could either answer, or compete in a physical challenge.
The physical challenges required a great variety of skill sets. In “Beer Scramble” contestants minds were put to the test as they had to assemble a puzzle. In “Cookie Face” a contestant would have to move cookies from his forehead to mouth without the use of his hands or tongue:
|More hilarious in person|
Standouts from the first two rounds included Erin from Bobby Mig and the Lady Lushes who “aced” the challenge in “Blow the Joker” (contestant had to chug a beer, stack a deck of cards on top and blow off all but the last card--the joker) and John from Bazinga! who had no problem with “A Bit Dicey” (balancing six die on a popsicle stick held in the mouth).
|Nerves of steel|
The obstacle course began with one team member pouring water from the upstairs window of Hamilton’s into a pitcher on the head of one of their teammates on the street below:
|Finally we get messy|
|Pick wrong and you drink a lot of beer|
The next part of the obstacle course required the contestant to throw a ping pong ball into a pitcher perched on the head of his teammate. Finally, all four team members would have to chug a beer and race up and down the block.
The final obstacle course was not for the weak
After the smoke cleared, the ultimate winners were Marc Summers is my Dad. One of their members was celebrating his birthday, and I’m sure he could not have asked for a better birthday present than the glory that is winning NAKID Double Dare.
|Winners! They won a pinwheel!|
|Heh heh heh....hole|
