ESPN's 2 minute Drill is modeled after the television sports quiz show by the same name. The game is divided into 3 distinct rounds. Round 1 has four experts who represent different categories of questions relating to a specific topic - Tightends, MVPs, Kentucky Basketball, All in the Family, to name but a few...The host, Kenny Mayne, has a bland, less caustic style than Regis of Who Wants to be a Millionaire fame. Wrong answers do evoke a dry wisecrack though. Players must select the correct multiple choice answer (or they can pass) to earn a point. If a wrong answer is given then the user must move to a different topic. Bonus points are earned by answering all the questions in one category. A small countdown clock grants 2 minutes to answer as many correct questions as possible before proceeding to Round 2. (Note - this is a fast-paced game!).
In Round 2, questions automatically appear. They cover random sports topics presented in a multiple-choice format. Again 2 minutes are allotted to score as many points as possible. The final round allows the user to choose a field of interest. Players must answer a 3-part question based on a trivia fact which appears on the screen. One must type in the correct answer - no multiple-choice guesswork permitted here. If you are savvy enough to wade through the 3 questions correctly your score will double.
