Overview of 'The Cube':
Examples of Challenges:
In order to beat The Cube, contestants must complete tasks such as:
- Throwing a basketball into a hoop while standing on a revolving turntable.
- Jumping on a pre-determined number of squares inside the cube as they light up.
- Walking a straight line from one end of the cube to the other while blindfolded.
There are two helps that contestants can use in the game.
Simplify: Simplify makes the task simpler for the contestant, but the manner in which the task is simplified is not revealed until the contestant decides to use it. This help can be used during any attempt to complete a challenge.
Trial Run: Trial Run allows the contestant to try a task without using any of his or her lives. If the task is completed successfully during the Trial Run, it does not count and the contestant must perform the task again. This help may only be used before the first attempt at a task, and is not available for the first task of the game.
Both helps become unavailable, even if not used, during the final challenge.
The Body is a woman who deomstrates all of the games for the contestants. She is dressed in a white body suit and a mask that completely covers her face.
