The basic game is pretty similar to the multi player version of the Quiz Wiz. It allows four players at answer various questions, you are presented with a series of buttons to answer the questions. The difference here is you were not reading from a book but rather the tape provided pre-recorded questions from a host. Some of the hosts were the quiz show masters of the day and even Vincent Price shows up on one. There were only a few different tapes available for the Omni, and it appears that the original launch series is it, no second series.
The odd thing about the game is those 8 tracks. If you know how an 8 track works, its a single spool that uptakes while it unwinds. This is opposed by a cassette tape which had two reels or even a 9 track tape drive. The difference functionally is that the 8 tracks don't allow rewind but rather just play forward. Basically this made them an infinite forward loop. I am not sure this could work in a tape drive. There is the other option that the tapes were just to play the questions and that the device was pre-programmed for each quiz. This would have made the device not compatible with expansions. I am not sure if this or the dependence on the 8 track was the cause of the product not launching subsequent releases.
Really as a game it's sort of ahead of its time. This would probably make a fantastic iPhone application. Allowing people to answer each from their own device. As I have mentioned in my Quiz Wiz review, I could even allow players to each have their own questions. Sorry that is sort of my dream quiz game where everyone has their own area of expertize.
