iWin and Endemol to bring Deal or No Deal and 1 vs 100 to Facebook


After Microsoft removed 1 vs 100 from their Xbox Live service, I was more than a bit upset. I spent countless hours playing with friends and strangers alike from the comfort of my living room, all while trying to one-up my competitors with my pop culture know-how. That ship has sailed however, but the fun may soon be returning, as iWin and Endemol USA have announced a partnership (via company press release) that will bring not only 1 vs 100 back to life, but will bring Deal or No Deal with it, straight to Facebook.

Releasing later this Spring, the Facebook versions of both games will allow you to play with or against other Facebook members, whether they are your friends or strangers. In Deal or No Deal, you'll be playing against the Banker while opening cases and trying to keep the big numbers in play, but you'll also be able to add new "Sweeteners" to the deal, that add bigger valued cases to your particular episode, reveal low valued cases, or save the banker's offers for future use.

For 1 vs 100, you'll be able to invite your friends to join your own Mob and will compete against them in trivia questions across new gameplay modes designed specifically for Facebook. Should you make a mistake, you'll be able to invite your friends to "Right My Wrong," while you'll also be given the chance to climb to the top of the leaderboards by playing "Spin to Win."

We'll make sure to give you additional details about both of these games as we know more. Be on the lookout for both of these games on Facebook this Spring, and on PC this fall.
