According to NBC's press release, one player must outlast a mob of 100 people in a tense battle of brains and greed for a chance to win a huge cash prize. To stay in the game, the player must answer trivia questions and get every one right -- wrong answers from the mob eliminates them from the game, driving up the cash prize for the player. If the player can eliminate all 100 members of the mob, they'll go home with the top prize.
