Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, ELLEN'S GAME OF GAMES is a one-hour comedy game show that includes supersized versions of the most popular and action-packed games from her daytime talk show, THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW. Stephen "tWitch" Boss is the show's announcer. Contestants, who are pulled right from the audience, have to maneuver massive obstacles, answer questions under crushing time pressure and face gigantic plunges into the unknown -- all in a quest to win a big cash prize. At the start, over four rounds contestants play games, such as "Blindfolded Musical Chairs," "Dizzy Dash" and "Scary Go Round.". The winner of each round advances to play "Know or Go." The person who wins advances to the final round to play an epic game of "Hot Hands," where they have to guess as many answers as they can in a designated amount of time. On Monday, December 18, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered a special preview episode of the series, during which contestants played "Dizzy Dash," "Tuba Toothpaste," "Aw Snap" and "Scary Go Round." Two weeks later -- on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 from 8-10pm -- NBC presented the official series premiere, showing back-to-back new episodes.

"High School Musical Chairs" (9:20pm ET/9pm PT, immediately following the President's address on the East Coast): Contestants play brand new games "Son of a One Eyed Monster" and "Taste Buds" along with "Blindfolded Musical Chairs" and "Scary Go Round."
