Welcome to donduk. A refuge for those who enjoy Deal or No Deal, the hit Channel 4 gameshow hosted by Noel Edmonds. The award winning gameshow Deal or No Deal has become a big hit for Channel 4 and marks a sensational return to our screens of Noel Edmonds.

Deal or No Deal is enjoyed my millions of viewers daily, where the contestants battle with The Banker to try and win a jackpot of £250,000. Here at donduk you will find full daily reports of each show, as well Deal or No Deal news and specials. Deal or No Deal although initially appearing very simple in format of just opening a few boxes for the chance to win some big money prizes, actually has some potentially complex decisions to be made at points throughout the show, the contestants occasionally try complex or simple gameplay in an attempt to give them an edge in beating the Banker.

Its nice to be nice

This is just a quick rant as I try to catch the thought between meetings.

I can't think of another game or reality TV show which takes a group of strangers and gets them to work together for the benefit of one of them. I think the attitudes shown on DOND are constantly under threat in our society. In Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the sorely missed Douglas Adams wrote :

“... nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change...”

Maybe DOND is the start of a revolution, the nice guy finishing first - beautiful women falling for good guys....world peace anyone?

On a vaguely similar theme, during my recent trip to the US, there were trailers for a new TV game show called UNANIMOUS, the basic concept of which was that 10 (maybe 12) players are locked in a room with no contact with the outside world. There is $1 million to be won by one of the players, the only snag being that all the players have to decide who wins it (and you're ahead of me here) UNANIMOUSLY! Oh yes, just one more thing, the prize money decreases all the time they're in there... to be honest it looked more like a bloodbath than "work(ing) together for the benefit of one of them", but that's life I guess...
