DescriptionEdit

A game show that we host at various conventions! Now here on YouTube for your viewing pleasure![1]

Thrown Controllers' rules Edit

Before the show started, everyone who enters the show will receive a number card range from 1 to 400. When the show started, Usually, Chuggaaconroy will select the contestant by randomly select the number card given to the audiences. When the contestant shows up, ProtonJon will ask the contestant to choose one of ten panels. The panel the contestant choose can be one of the following categories:

  • Easy Question
  • Multiple Choice
  • Screenshot
  • Who the Heck is that?
  • Dialogue
  • Audio
  • Solo Video Game Challenge
  • TheRunawayGuys Video Game Challenge
  • Audience Video Games Challenge
  • The Lighting Round
  • Leap of Faith
  • Choose Your Destiny
  • Pick Your Poison
  • The Devil's Deal
  • Brutal Question

After it is revealed which category the contestant picked, they will try to get the point in that category by meeting the objective (for example, if the contestant got an Easy Question, they will have to give the correct answer to get the point) If the contestant meets the objective, they will get a point and continue the game, if the contestant loses, their game will be over. When the contestant fails, the next contestant will enter the game, and repeat. At the end of the show, the contestant with the highest score will receive a special prize.

Notes Edit

  • If there are more than one people that are tied for the highest score at the end of the show, they will have a tie-breaker game to decide who is the winner.
  • At the start of the show, Emile will list out all the prize the contestant can get. From the participation prize to the prize for the contestant who got five points in the game. The special prize for the winner, however, will be kept as a secret until the end of the show. On occasion, Emile has given a sneak peak to the audience as to what it will be.

Thrown Controllers' Categories Edit

This is the detailed list of each category that is present in the Thrown Controllers.

  • Easy Question: A simple and easy video games trivia question, the contestant will have to answer correctly.
  • Multiple Choice: A video games trivia question with four answer choices the contestant can choose.(Added during Magfest 2017 while Tricky question retired).
  • Screenshot: A screenshot from a video game will show, and the contestant will have to answer what game the screenshot came from.(Added during Pax East 2013).
  • Who the Heck is That?: A silhouette of a video game character will show, alongside the character's description. The contestant will have to answer who is this character.(Added during Pax East 2014).
  • Dialogue: A voice clip from a video game will play, the contestant will have to answer what game the voice clip came from.(Added during Pax Prime 2014).
  • Audio: A music, or a remix music from a video game will play, the contestant will have to answer what game the music came from.
  • Solo Video Game Challenge: The contestant will have to beat a specific challenge involving playing video games. A common example is beating World 1-2 in Super Mario Bros. in 60 seconds.
  • TheRunawayGuys Video Game Challenge: The contestant chooses one of the three TRG members, and will either try to complete a challenge set by them or compete against them in a video game.
  • Audience Video Game Challenge: Emile will choose a random audience to play a video game against the contestant.

  • Leap of Faith: The contestant, or Emile, will choose an audience member to beat a challenge for the contestant. If the audience member wins the challenge, the contestant will get a point and the audience member will become a contestant as well.(Added during Magfest 2017).
  • Choose Your Destiny: The contestant gets to choose one of five random categories, if the contestant chooses Brutal Question or TRG Video Game Challenge (if available) they will get two points instead of one.(Added during Pax West 2016).
  • Pick Your Poison: The contestant gets to choose one of three video games challenges, then choose who will play against the contestant. (Either one of the three TRG members, or an audience member)(Added during Magfest 2018).
  • The Devil's Deal: The contestant can choose to take this deal or not. If they do, all panels onward will worth double points. However, Easy Question and Multiple Choice will not present in the panels anymore, and the more point the contestant have, the higher chance they will get the Brutal Question.(Added during Magfest 2019).
  • Brutal Question: The hardest category. It's a very hard video game trivia question usually about obscure facts or a jerk-ish question by TheRunawayGuys.
  • Tricky Question: (No longer used) A video game trivia question that was tricky to answer. Slightly harder than Easy Question.

Notes Edit

  • The Devil's Deal will not give a point to the contestant.

  • Due to the show being hosted in a charity livestream event and not a convention, some changes were made:
    • Jon is the only host in the show, while Emile and Tim get to be a contestant for the first time.
    • Since there is no audience, everyone appearing in the livestream took turns to be the contestant.
    • Unlike other shows, each player has three tries instead of one. When they failed to beat a category, a new board will show up, instead of continuing from the same board.
    • Viewers can donate a certain amount of money ($100 to be exact) to force a contestant to choose the next number on the board.
    • Some questions that Emile and Tim can easily answer were taken out.
    • TheRunawayGuys Video Game Challenge features two special choices: Emile Only and Tim Only for Emile and Tim respectively.

Trivia Edit

  • Due to missing footages and TheRunawayGuys want to release the show's archives in order, the PAX West 2018, and ConBravo 2018 shows haven't been upload to their YouTube account as of now.[4]
  • The Runaway Guys Colosseum features a fake TRG Video Game Challenge for Emile: Spend 1 minute saying nice things about Paper Mario: Sticker Star.[5] Emile did take and beat this challenge but he did not notice it was a fake challenge. His real challenge was to clear two stages in Donkey Kong without getting a Game Over.[6]
  • The following year a donation incentive was to force Lord Dona'tor to play; he ended up winning and claimed The Lamp as his prize. One of his video game challenges was a blindfolded challenge; Dona'tor came prepared thanks to his iconic robe's hood.
  • Although the oldest recorded show of Thrown Controllers was at Pax East 2012. The first ever panel was held at Otafest Lite in 2011 which can only be found on NCS' vlog channel, BreakingNCS.[7]
  • There are several shows that weren't recorded or uploaded. Pax West 2018 with only a video showing a puzzle game for pick your poison, the lightning round, Kirby's avalanche(NCS challenge) and Shaq Fu for GB(Leap of faith later shown at Magfest 2019). The TooManyGames live show wasn't filmed and the only details about the show are Chugga's challenge from Conbravo(Donkey Kong) and a few reused dialogue clips. Pax West 2019 as of now hasn't been uploaded but a few challenges have been shown(Bubsy, Indiana Jones and the last 2 panels for Scooty). Hard Rock Cafe live show hasn't been uploaded but will probably be uploaded soon.
