The Guinness Game was a short-lived syndicated game show based on The Guinness Book of World Records.
Three studio contestants attempted to predict if a record-breaking stunt, performed live on the show, could be accomplished (ex: "Can five men change four tires on a car without a jack, in two minutes or less?"). Each player started with $1,000 and could bet up to ninety percent of his/her bankroll. The player with the most money after three rounds kept it and played a fourth round for a bonus prize by predicting whether the final stunt would succeed or fail.
The maximum possible cash total a player could win was $6,859, assuming he/she placed a maximum bet on each stunt and was correct all three times.
24 episodes were produced.
