Greed was a short-lived primetime game show based on the much even shorter-lived U.S. format of the same name. consisting a team of four contestants who answered a series of multiple-choice questions for a potential prize jackpot of up to $1,000,000. The show lasted for just eight episodes in total.
Contestants were selected from a pool. Five Players were initially selected for the pre-selection round. A question was asked by the host which required a numerical answer. The player with the closest answer responses to the actual answer were selected as team members, the closest person becoming team captain. The last remaining player was then return to the contestant pool for other opportunity at selection. During the first four rounds the questions are posed to the contestants who needed to select one correct answer from a selection of four. at any time, after a successfully completed round, the captain had the option of accepting the pre-winnings to that point and sharing it with his or her teammates.
Once round 5 was reached, an additional element of treachery was added to the game. A feature called the Terminator was triggered off, randomly nominating any one member to challenge another fellow player to a one-off question playoff, with the ultimate winner of the challenge taking the opponents share of the game winnings, while the loser leaves the stage with nothing. As a sweetener to accept the "Terminator" feature, the nominated players was given a cash payout. which could be kept inrespective of the outcome of the duel.
