Found instore at Home Bargains, Burslem. Box contains DVD game and 4 controllers.

Second Edition also available at this price. Although it stated the RRP as £24.99 I've found it online for £10-£15. Still a good deal for a stocking filler for Christmas and good fun when the whole family descend!


Fingers On Buzzers is a multi-remote game for the entire family. Unlike previous DVD games, this pack contains the game plus four infra-red multi-buzzers, which are compatible with all DVD players. This means there will be no more passing around of the remote control as now you can buzz in against your family and friends! Whether you’re a bubbly kid, a surly teen, a hip dad or a groovy granny, the slick graphics, tongue-in-cheek humour and playability of Fingers On Buzzers means it's the ideal DVD game for anyone hungry to test their mental agility.

Fingers on Buzzers is easy to set up and instantly playable--be it in a head-to-head battle between two, or all four players in action at once. Each game starts with a simple warm-up round to get players used to the multi-buzzer functionality, with the comical voice of the quiz master there to guide you through the game. After that, you take on your opponents with randomly selected rounds of general knowledge questions in the categories of: entertainment; sport; observational tasks; snap and parlour games; and the 'brainiac' subjects of politics, geography and history. Winning players can then revel in their glory, as their own virtual characters celebrate and lord it over unsuccessful opponents. With such an enjoyable DVD game, it'll only be moments before all contestants want to start afresh with a brand new game!

i brought this and its shocking

Original Poster

I've not played it but was considering it as a stocking filler. Is it really that bad? Seems to have some good reviews on Amazon.

Why is it so bad? settiing up? Gameplay?

I bought it for £1 at Sainsbury's last year and would have to agree with some of the negative reviews. It may be worth a go for £2 for curiosity value, but it is quite a frustrating play.
My main issues with it are:
* On the multiple choice question rounds, there is no opportunity for everyone to make a guess. It gives a question, with various answers assigned to each colour. If someone presses a colour, that player is told if they were right or wrong, and no-one else is given an input. This leads to more of a 'fastest finger' contest rather than a real challenge. It would have been much better if everyone could make an attempt at answering the question.
* The CGI interstitials between rounds are simply too long and too repetitive. It is frustrating watching them each time, and really slows down the game.
As I say, £2 is worth a try if you are curious, but I think many people will find it more hassle than it is worth.

Having re-read the OP's message, I note that the second edition is available as well. I should make it clear that my comments above relate solely to the first edition (the one used for the picture).
I believe that the second edition is supposed to be better than the first, but I don't have any direct experience with it. I also don't know the extent to which they address my concerns about the first version.
