If You Have An Answer, We Have A Question!

If You Have An Answer, We Have A Question!

It’s been almost 7 years since I last said those lines live in the StudioDome on Second Life. The show which was The 1st Question is something worth seeing again entering a new era of Virtual Reality. This could be you in a few years as an avatar in a virtual game show.

After 11 years since the show started, I wanted to revisit them, and looking back, re-watching I am filled with awe for what we pulled off every week for years. The shows are funny but also very informative and presaged today. So here are both the questions, and the answers from these 14 shows, I’ve included the tie breakers which weren’t always used, as they were too good not to include. Matching those up are part of the new interactivity. Some of the stuff is really out of this world!

How many The 1st Questions were there?  In all, around 150, as it ran once a week for 3 years and the last year, once a month. The format changed from an hour to 30 minutes as well over time.

If you watch more than a few episodes, you’ll see segments change, avatars evolve, and the set get redesigned. In the 4 years everyone really delivered a great show, Hydra & the crew were amazing, I thank everyone involved for the love and dedication.  It was done with wonder that we were pulling off a live show in the metaverse, and no matter what, the show must go on!  We saw action in the Dome not on camera, like being bombarded with inappropriate pictures, forced to a secret alternate location through DOS’s, and other attacks by griefers. I also want to thank the folks who stepped in when there where last-minute cancellations, I was always so grateful for you all.

It was a Pre-Golden Age of Virtual Entertainment, and ahead of its time. It predicts a future where people gear up and join a game show already in progress. First Person Thinking games will prove to be an important VR market. * If you have an Inner, or Outer Geek, this show is for you.

Welcome to the 1st Question!
