“Thank you” – host bows – “take your seats. You’re too much, really. Good evening all, I am your host, Francis James, and this is”…
– Crowd joins in –
“Quizzo! For! Life!”
Francis continues, “for you contestants, our audience members, and those of you watching throughout the universe I would like to remind you that this is not a game show. Ok? In the years following the Transplant Drought of 3035, my colleagues and I attempted to fix the organ economy here in the states. We received copies of every organ wait-list in our solar system, which now comes directly to us.” -Crowd claps- “We contacted every recipient and made them a promise. “If you are willing to provide an organ to someone else we WILL find you the one that you are in need of.”” -light cheers”- That, was Year One. And here we are today, forty years later, with two and a half galaxies worth of donors and recipients who have swapped more than five hundred thousand organs on this very stage! -crowd erupts-.
So, tonight’s game, ladies and gentlemen, is sure to be a real treat. We are going back to our roots. Very simple. Just like with our first game, there’s forty of you here. Forty rounds, and eighty slots on the wheel, each representing a different human organ. We’ll spin the wheel, I’ll ask a multiple choice question, and you will then select your answer from the kiosk in front of you. At the end of each round, one of our highly trained surgeons will come by to verify your answer. For every wrong, you lose an organ. Every right one, you remain in tact. See? Simple.
I can see the concern creeping it’s way on to some of your faces. Fear not. With the latest alien technology and the greatest intergalactic medical staff and artificial organs that Antimatter can buy I can assure you that the forty of you will remain living for the entirety of this game. I can also assure you that you all will leave here very much alive.
Again, eighty organs, forty rounds, so there is a fifty percent chance that the organ in which you are in need of will get selected over the course of this game. If I were you, if and when this happens, I would get that question wrong on purpose. On the flip side, if I were you, I would try my damndest to answer all other of the other questions correctly. Last week on this show we had an unfortunate fellow get every answer wrong… The last organ to be selected during that show was Flesh… That man walked out of here with cellophane wrapped around his muscles.”

Francis continues, “alright, alright, that’s enough reminiscing for now. Let’s get started… Right after a quick message from our sponsors!!!”
