Come! On! Down! To Amped for its brand new interactive bar experience Game Show MKE, offering a chance to ace fun trivia and challenges while living out your classic game show fantasies (without the pesky ad breaks).

Found at 910 W. Juneau Ave. in the Brewery District, Game Show MKE at Amped offers competition show-themed challenges like "The Feud," "The Great Pyramid," "20 Second Challenge" and "Pop Goes the Lyric" for competitors to test their knowledge against friends, co-workers, groups and beyond. The experience all comes set on a colorfully lit stage-like space complete with an in-person game host.

"Our mission is to take our audience on a journey through time, revisiting the golden era of game shows while infusing it with a contemporary twist," said Steve Davis, director of Experiences at Bars & Recreation, in a release. "We're thrilled to offer Milwaukee the chance to become part of the action,  participating in mind-bending challenges while competing against friends, family and colleagues."

Available Wednesdays through Saturdays beginning Wednesday, Oct. 18, each Game Show MKE experience lasts 100 minutes and is designed for groups ranging from six to 18 players – though larger groups can be accommodated. A booking starts at $35 per person.

To book your show or for more information, visit Bars & Recreation's website

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
