Well looky here, most DVD games that we encounter utilize the standard DVD remote for their workings, and as such having a true multiplayer contest can be slightly tricky, but not this one, oh no, it comes with 4 of its own controllers.
So, you’ll be able to have simultaneous general-knowledge related tomfoolery with 3 friends, I want to know more details my friend!
Calm it, we have the skinny right here for your bullet-point understanding mind (and the press release is after the jump):
- Two lengths of game can be played; 25 or 12 minutes a pop
- Categories range from sport, politics, geography, parlour games and many more
- Should have some pretty funny and quality graphics accompanying it
- Released 26th November priced £24.99 (that includes the game and the 4 handsets)
Looks like a nice little set, something to get the family around the TV on Christmas day. But if you do play it the, don’t rub it in too hard when you win, ok?

Players will find FINGERS ON BUZZERS easy to set up and instantly playable, be it in a head to head battle or all four players in action at once, the comical and cheeky voice of the quiz master is there to guide them through the game.
Each game can be played in a long (25 minutes) or short (12 minutes) version and between two to four players, each with an individual handset and character. The glamour and glitz of a game show can be brought directly into your living room as players choose their character and settle into their virtual living room in the game where the contestants cheer, high five, goad each other and the resident dog reacts to the scores.

Each game starts with a simple warm up round to get players used to the Multi-Buzzer functionality. Following this are randomly selected rounds, including entertainment, sport, observational tasks, snap and parlour games. There’s also the brainiac fare of politics, geography and history as FINGERS ON BUZZERS twists and turns to give something for everyone. There are plenty of opportunities to breed family competitiveness. With a randomly selected round in which players can shake up the scores by stealing other player’s points, swapping players scores and where the winners can become losers, this game will give you a lot more than you bargained for.
There are so many different aspects to FINGERS ON BUZZERS that no matter your speciality or age range, there’s a round to help you shine. The technical advances of FINGERS ON BUZZERS compared to its DVD game predecessors means that the questions and rounds are selected randomly, allowing each game played to be different with an endless choice of variations so it will always test players’ wits and will never become boring.
