From the introduction:
You are an 11–15 year old kid. It’s the ‘90s. You run home from school everyday to watch TV on your parents’ big CRT. But today, something came in the mail that will change your life forever. You have been invited to compete in your favorite competition game show on a cable TV network aimed at kids! This network’s logo might be large, orange, and nonthreatening. You might even win the coolest, most radical prize you could ever imagine. You will certainly have to wear a ludicrous mouth guard. You are about to become… a competition kid!
What is this?
Competition Kids! is a silly roleplaying game for 3-5 players. It’s inspired by such classic TV shows as Legends of the Hidden Temple and Global Guts. During the game, one player takes on the role of Host and the other players take on the roles of Contestants. Working together, the players build a game show, create some kids to play in it, and narrate the competition between the kids. One kid will be victorious over their competitors.
Players should play in the spirit of winning for the characters they play, but also in the spirit of telling a fun story with friends. In the end, we all pat each other on the back and celebrate a good time had by all.
