NBC will debut Howie Mandel's "Take It All" (formerly "Howie Mandel's White Elephant"), an exciting new game show, to be stripped throughout the holiday week of December 10-14 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET all nights) and to conclude on Monday, December 17.
In the show, a contestant selects and opens a prize worth thousands of dollars: dream prizes such as luxury cars, exotic trips, jewelry and VIP experiences. Then, the next player is faced with a dilemma: do they steal a prize that has already been revealed, or do they take a chance with another unopened prize, hoping what's inside is worth more?
But that's just the beginning. When there are only two contestants left, the players have a life-changing choice to make: keep the prizes they have - or try to take all the prizes. If both players choose to "keep mine," they will each keep the prizes they have won in the prior rounds. If one player chooses "keep mine" and the other chooses to "take it all," the player that chose "take it all" will go home with all the prizes - theirs and their opponents. But if both choose "take it all," they both go home with nothing. The stakes are insanely high as each contestant grapples with the choice of a lifetime.
So if you made it to the final round would you take it or keep it?
The popular holiday gift game comes to life in this new competition.
I would have to see who the person was I was going against. It is pretty much the ultimate poker game.
So it's prisoner's dilemma?
GSN did this back in the 90s - Friend or Foe
Yep, it's prisoner's dilemma. Some TV Exec probably took a game theory class and thought it'd make a good show, I guess.
F it. I go on the show with nothing and comfortable leaving with nothing. no way am I going to let someone get 'mines' because I was trying to play nice and they were greedy.
TAKE IT ALL.
sounds terrible, but I guess that is par for the course with network TV
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
It's been done...
this is the best split or steal i have seen.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
everything has been done, TV would be nothing but news and live events if you got rid of everything that has been done.
What would I do? I wouldn't watch it.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
Tit for Tat strategy won't work. I'm doomed!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other show ideas that are coming soon.
Contestants win prizes throughout the show, then at the end both are given virtual cars. The cars are racing at each other. If the cars collide, no one gets any prizes. If one swereves and the other doesn't, the one that doesn't gets all the prizes. If both swerve, they both keep what they had.
A group of 10 contestants are given a task with a massive prize. Players are all offered small prizes if they do not take part, and will still get their share of the big prize if the contestants who do compete win. If the contestants do not complete the task, no one gets any prize.
New brilliant TV concepts!
The original show's name was "Just the Tip," but they decided to make it more difficult on the contestants.
This sounds like it would be interesting to watch once but after that would be insanely boring and repetitive. I was able to watch Deal or No Deal about 3 times.
I'd go for it all. Back when "Who Want to be a Millionaire" was big, I'd get so pissed at the people who would stop at $32,000 - WTF, it's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" not "Who wants to win $32,000" You got a free trip to NYC, it's not like you're out anything...
Watching it now. Kind of like Price Is Right and then there's the Prisoners' Dilemma thing at the end.
The thing that bugs me is that these prizes are mostly pretty impractical. Hardly worth the taxes that will have to be paid on them.

Sell the prizes!
Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
It only makes sense to choose take it all...can't see how this could be a good show.
Very true. If your opponent chooses to take it all, you don't get anything no matter what you choose. So the best option no matter what is take it all.
Yep 4 options:
They pick keep mine -
-You pick keep mine: you get your stuff
-You pick take it all: you get everything
They pick take it all -
-You pick keep mine: you lose
-You pick take it all: you lose
To sum up: If they pick take it all, you lose. If they don't, you get stuff. So why not get your stuff and theirs if they let you.
came here to post this.
and if everyone has that attitude, then no one wins ever. The gameshow would turn into the Seinfeld paper/rock/scissors game (sorry for ad in video, only one I could find).
season 5, episode 16: The Stand-in.
rock paper scissors

It's like it's a prisoner's dilemma....
Your opponent faces the same strategy decisions, which leads to both of you getting nothing. You and your opponent need to figure out a way so that the best strategy for both of you results in getting prizes.
One way is in that golden balls clip. The one guy promises to play steal, but also says he'll give the other guy half of the winning after the show. This forces the opponent to face a decision of having nothing (if they believe the threat) or possibly getting something (probability the other guy follows through on promise).
Golden balls guy made it needlessly risky on himself by playing split after promising to steal, but you can see that it worked out.
