Every Thursday we ask our Brain Game contestants one interesting, thought-provoking or just plain quirky question. Then Young Post readers can choose to eliminate one until we have a winner. The ultimate Brain Game winner will receive a Fujifilm Instax mini 50S instant camera and three packs of Fujifilm instant film worth HK$2,280.

Who do you want to ELIMINATE? Vote below.

This round we asked: What TV game show would you create?

In my game, called App-off, 10 contestants begin by playing phone app games such as Temple Run, Tap Tap Revenge and Candy Crush. They don't know in advance which apps they'll be playing and get two minutes to familiarise themselves with each one. Anyone who fails three times is eliminated. The player with the highest score goes on to the next round.

The show would run for 11 episodes, with each winner in the first 10 shows receiving an iPad and a HK$500 iTunes gift card, and advancing to play for the grand championship in the 11th show.

My choice for presenters would be David Tennant and John Barrowman. Their wacky senses of humour and the tagline, "All you have left is your last life", in their Scottish accents would make the show amazing.

The grand prize would be HK$10,000 in cash and a chance to embark on a career testing game apps.

My game is called 21uck, with the tagline "Luck gets you rollin'". The presenter will be decided by an online vote. It is based on the casino game blackjack, which requires lots of luck.

Each episode consists of two rounds, a shield-or-kill round and a board round. In each shield-or-kill round, three contestants compete in 10 hands of blackjack. Every "lucky 21" earns the player a chance to cancel one punishment in the board round, or cancel the effect of an opponent's "lucky 21". This is the round in which you build your weapons for later.

In the board round, the contestants play a board game. Each player has a token, and spins a wheel to determine how many steps they may advance. There are two types of spaces: one for prizes, the other for punishments. Here is where the "lucky 21s" come into play. If players don't use them to avoid the horrendous punishments, they may be forced to hug a snake, eat some gruesome food like grasshoppers, etc.

The contestant with the highest score in the board round wins HK$1 million!
