Rhyme Time (first played on Series 1, Episode 1): The players are shown 2 statements which rhyme. They buzz in with the correct answers. On some questions, one of the statements are replaced with either a picture or a song (in which the singer is the rhyming answer they require.) Broken Karaoke (first played on Series 1, Episode 1): The “House of Games” karaoke machine is broken, and can only show the first letters of each word of a particular song. The players must buzz in when they know the answer. The only clues the players get are the year the song was released, and that the letters come up in time with the tune of the song. What's in a Name? (first played on Series 1, Episode 2): The players are given statements, of which the answer comes from the full name of the players. Each player has 2 answers come from their name, and a point is given for a correct answer, but if the player gets a correct answer from their own name, they get 2 points. This Round Is in Code (first played on Series 1, Episode 3): The players are given a category, and answers are shown in alpha-numeric code (i.e. A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.). The players have to unscramble the codes to get a point. Z–A (first played on Series 1, Episode 4): The players are shown three blanked out words, with the letters being filled in reverse alphabetical order (i.e., Z, then Y, then X, etc.) The players have to buzz in when they know what connects all three words. Games House Of (first played on Series 2, Episode 3): The players are given questions, but instead of answering them normally, they have to give the answer, but with the words in alphabetical order (e.g. Who became UK Prime minister in 1997? The answer is Tony Blair, but in this round, they would give the answer as Blair Tony.). The Elephant in the Room (first played on Series 2, Episode 4): The players are given a word, and are then given questions to answer, but instead of answering them normally, they have to give the answer with the given word removed from the answer (e.g., if the given word was ANT, and the answer to the question was ELEPHANT, the player would have to say ELEPH as the answer). Roonerspisms (first played on Series 2, Episode 5): The players are shown 2 statements, which are spoonerisms of each other, they have to buzz in with both answers to get a point. On some questions, one of the statements are replaced with either a picture or a song (in which the song is the rhyming answer they require.) (e.g., a statement could say “Mr Kravitz feels discomfort”, and the other one say “The Liverpool street immortalized in song by The Beatles”, then the answers would be “Lenny pain” and “Penny Lane”.) The Backwards Round (first played on Series 2, Episode 6): The players are given questions, but the statement is in reverse order. As with the questions, the players must give their answers in reverse as well. (e.g. “Trafford Old at matches home their play team football Which?”, the answer would be United Manchester (with the correct way round being “Which football team play their home matches at Old Trafford?” Manchester United.)
