"Turn off the light, and turn on the night! There's nowhere to be, but here, you're tuned into NIGHT GAMES, a late-night party, where single girls and guys go really big, by telling it like it really is! IT'S NIGHT GAMES! And here's the man who (insert funny comment), JEFF MARDER!"

Night Games was a short-lived, late-night dating game show where contestants found out how much they liked each other's answers to questions.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Six contestants (three men & three women) scored each other based on how much they liked the other's answers. Also they matched up with their ideal date using their own bios without knowing who's is which.

At the beginning of the game, during the contestant introductions, the home audience was shown three items representing their bios.

Round 1[edit | edit source]

Host Marder asked questions to each of the contestants to learn about their thoughts, opinions & attitudes about the opposite sex, dating & relationships. After one contestant gave an answer, the three members of the opposite sex locked in their rating on a scale of 1 to 10 points with their scoring keypads.

Round 2[edit | edit source]

This round had the contestants be asked more personal questions, and again their answers were rated as to how likable their answers were. This time the members of the opposite sex locked in their rating on a scale of 1 to 20 points.


The man and the woman with the most points at the end of the two rounds received dinner at a local restaurant. (Ties were broken with a "draw sticks" game.) And if the winning couple chose each other prior to the show, they also won a dream date vacation.
