Game Show Presenter GOLD Level is the newest software for creating your own game shows. It works with many popular buzzer systems, but it can also be used without a buzzer system by just pressing keyboard number keys. It supports 3 game formats with more on the way. It has expanded customization options and advanced buzzer control options for number-key buzzers. Owners of earlier Game Show Presenter products may upgrade to the Gold Level.
The Eggspert Buzzers continue to be a low-cost favorite for teachers of young kids, but there are some tradeoffs. Older kids could be too rough with it. And while it does light up to tell you which team is first, it doesn't connect to Game Show Presenter, which means you would have to press the number key matching the player. Eggspert Basic and Eggspert Wireless sell at Amazon in the $50-$75 range.
