Pawnography is a game show for the History Channel where two contestants face off in a trivia game against the stars of Pawn Stars, Rick Harrison, Corey Harrison and Austin "Chumlee" Russell.


Rounds 1 and 2[]

In round one, both players are pitted against the combined team of Corey and Chumlee. In round two, Rick takes over his co-worker's position. The players are asked a series of questions each with four possible answers. On each question after the answers are revealed, a player will buzz-in and choose which answer is correct; otherwise, any of the opposing players can buzz-in and steal. Correct answer choices earned money, round one questions are worth $100 and round two questions are worth $200. At the end of the first round, a $150 bonus question is asked, which both contestants can answer. (At no time is money lost for an incorrect answer.)

In addition, an antique item from the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop is awarded to the player who finishes the round with the most money. If the Pawn Stars finished the round with the most money, they get to keep it. In case of a tie at the end of round one, the prize carries over to round two. In case of a tie at the end of round two, one "Sudden Death" question is asked of the tied players for an additional $200 to break the tie.

The player with the most money at the end of round two wins the game and gets a chance to face the Pawn Stars for the money he won and all the antique prizes won plus an additional prize.

Pawnography Showdown[]

In the Pawnography Showdown round, the winning player and the three Pawn Stars are asked the same ten questions. While one side is an isolation booth, the other side has 60 seconds to answer the ten questions. On each question, he can either answer the question or pass. The scores of each side are not revealed to them until the final act, but the home viewers can see their progress as they play.

After each side has taken his/their turn, Rick and the winning player "haggle" to make an offer for the items & money involved. If the deal is accepted by both sides, the player leaves with that amount of cash and prizes. Otherwise, if the contestant answered the most questions correctly or tied the Pawn Stars' score, they keep everything they have won plus the additional prize. Otherwise, they win nothing.
