Get in the Game

Fabulous prizes! Ridiculous questions! Even more ridiculous tasks! Why settle for watching a game show on TV when you can watch it — and participate — live and in person? At Sexual Tension, Denver's own weekly live game-show event, you can join hosts Princess and Fred, pick a team to cheer on and get ready to play the drinking-game version of Simon Says to help your chosen side win, win, WIN!

Leave the kids at home, though, since this particular game show gets a little naughty. “It's definitely adult material, and drinking is part of the game,” says promoter Rex Finfgeld. “We're not talking about strip-club material, but some of the games and questions gear themselves toward sexual innuendo.”

Each week is a slightly different format, but Finfgeld promises that game-show fans will recognize elements from some of their all-time favorites — phoning a friend, naming tunes and guessing what the infamous survey says — all packaged in double entendres and soaked in booze.

Get in on the action tonight and every Tuesday at the Oriental Theater, 4335 West 44th Avenue. The games begin at 8 p.m., and admission is $7. For tickets and information, visit www.theorientaltheater.com or call 303-455-2124. For info on becoming a contestant, e-mail [email protected]
