Case Values

MBC 1 Version

The show starts with 26 contenders being asked five general-knowledge questions, each one with three possible answers. The players answer the questions using keypads. If a player gets a question right, they receive one point for each contestant who got that question wrong. The two best players face off at the Temptation Round. In this round, one of the two players can decide to leave the game and take home a valuable price. If both reject this option, an open-ended buzzer question is asked. If a contestant buzzes in with the correct answer, they proceed. If a contestant buzzes in with a wrong answer, they get eliminated and their opponent moves on to the final round where the case game is played. After the winning player has selected his briefcase, the 25 contenders who did not make it to the final round are given one of the 25 remaining cases each. When the finalist selects a case to be opened, the player holding it has to guess its content and is awarded a small amount of money if his guess is proved to be correct.
