Watching the premieres of Chain Reaction and StarFace on GSN tonight, I don’t know what was more surprising:
– The fact that Chain Reaction is using the original Go bonus round (and came up with a pretty clever way to score it), or
– The fact that Pat Finn is the executive producer of StarFace.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m giving CR a 9/10 out of the box, falling short of the perfect ten because of a couple of gameplay idiosyncracies (like the fact that they’ll spell out a whole word and not leave off the last letter like versions in the past). StarFace I give a 6/10 – it’s innocuous enough, but I don’t see myself watching it religiously.
