The Oak Crest Network is extremely proud to kick off the 19th season of our popular quiz show, Mind Over Memory. Beginning on September 1st at 11:30 AM on Channel 973, you will have the opportunity to watch two resident teams go head to head in what is sure to be an epic battle of wits.
For new residents and those that haven’t seen the show, Mind Over Memory pits two teams of three residents in a trivia contest. The rules remain the same: Each team is given 24 questions in alternating packets of three. If the team answers correctly, they are awarded 20 points. If they answer incorrectly, 10 points are deducted, but they may choose to pass without answering and in that case, no points are deducted. If the team to initially get the question gets it wrong or passes, the other team has the option to steal for 20 points if they get the question right. 10 bonus points can be won by answering all three questions in your team’s packet correctly. At the end of forty-eight questions, the team with the most points at the conclusion of the segment, will win the game!
The top team in each of the two divisions (Einstein Division and Newton Division) face off in the Championship game, scheduled to air on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24th at 11:30 AM, 3:30 PM, and 10:30 PM on Channel 973 (The show will also replay November 26th & 27th, as well as December 1st, 3rd, & 4th).
This year we are excited to welcome several new players and an entire new team to the Mind Over Memory family. Be sure to tune in each Thursday at 11:30 AM, 3:30 PM, and 10:30 PM for a brand new game. Plus the episodes will be available the following day on www.oakcresttv.com. If you are interested in being a contestant or helping with production, please call or stop by the television studio at your earliest convenience.
