  • On this week's experimental gameshow,

  • it's not about what you know; it's about what you can do.

  • This week in the garage, some faces you might recognise,

  • some games you can try at home

  • and we have pushed the budget just a little bit.

  • We've got some music and a countdown timer.

  • Welcome to the Game Garage.

  • Today, we are playing Above Average, and playing it with me are:

  • -Hello, I'm Cambria. -My name's Guy.

  • I'm Taha.

  • And I would ask you how you all know each other, but to be honest, I know you.

  • Let's be honest. I've brought some friends in for this one.

  • How do you all know each other?

  • They spent a week, two weeks, five weeks in my basement.

  • Okay.

  • Do you want to give context to that, or do you want to leave that as is?

  • That went up, that started;

  • week in the basement, then it became five weeks.

  • Yeah.

  • I think it'll be six by the time we're done.

  • -Yeah. -What are you doing in your basement?

  • We're animating a music video.

  • Okay.

  • We need no natural light and we need something exactly like this room, so...

  • I was going to say, this is familiar territory for you then.

  • Yeah.

  • -Yeah, yeah. -And actually, if you...

  • What's the music video? Is it...

  • Stop motion.

  • So like things on a table being moved about?

  • Yeah, model making.

  • Which is kind of the games we're doing here today.

  • You guys have been inadvertently practicing.

  • This isn't fair!

  • You've been training us, the last five weeks have led up to this.

  • Who's been actually filming the video, because you...?

  • Us two have.

  • You guys have been animating, I've occasionally been clicking.

  • Right. And telling us we've been over budget.

  • Yeah, but mainly just, you know, telling them off for not moving things.

  • Not going home.

  • 'You need to leave, it's like 1am.

  • 'He needs to go home.'

  • You're gonna have three games today, plus a final.

  • Every one of those games that you are above average in,

  • is going to make the final easier.

  • And the final is hopefully where you're gonna win some money.

  • And Above Average means you are beating the average

  • of the seven people that you're playing against today.

  • Here's who you're up against.

  • We have Saf from SuperSafTV.

  • He is our tech reviewer.

  • Lucy Bella Earl, from English with Lucy, English teacher, obviously.

  • Hannah Witton, sex educator, vlogger, author,

  • a whole load of other things that I couldn't fit in that caption.

  • In his motorised armchair, Colin Furze, inventor in his shed.

  • Em Ford from My Pale Skin.

  • She's our beauty expert and a load of other things besides.

  • Steven Bridges, magician.

  • If you're wondering why he's not waving at you, it's because I forgot to ask him to on camera.

  • And happily waving at you, is Barry Lewis, chef.

  • Those are the seven. What do you think?

  • Colin Furze, I think, is just going to like invent something in those sixty seconds

  • that's gonna help him.

  • -And Saf is going to be interesting. -Yeah.

  • I don't know; I don't know how much he knows about the technology he reviews,

  • but if he knows anything then I think that's gonna be... gonna be difficult.

  • Definitely Steven Bridges.

  • He's a... he's a tricky man.

  • -A crafty guy! -Very sneaky.

  • Alright, let me show you what your first game is.

  • Hold as many pencils as you can in one hand.

  • You have one minute.

  • I am gonna give it a little think.

  • I feel quite lucky that I have freakishly long fingers, so this might come in handy.

  • Ah, okay, yeah. I have tiny hands.

  • People haven't thought about it this much, have they? Erm...

  • You can use anything you like to get the pencils into your hand

  • but at the end of the minute, they must be held off the table using just one hand.

  • No other objects, no other parts of your body.

  • Pencils are counted at the end of the minute.

  • Good luck!

  • I just wish that I'd brought a Mickey Mouse glove with me,

  • or one of them like big Incredible Hulk hands. I'm like, urr...

  • I've never owned so many pencils!

  • This is new territory!

  • Look, there's two up there in the cupboard but they're the same make.

  • Do I have an advantage?

  • Spoiler: Colin did not have an advantage.

  • -Oh! I'm surprised. -So the first...

  • the first decision of the show for you folks,

  • is who is going to be up there playing game one?

  • Game one is worth one point, game two is going to be worth two

  • and game three is going to be worth three.

  • Definitely me, I have huge hands(!)

  • I don't know!

  • Mine aren't much bigger.

  • Erm, yeah...

  • I feel like... Okay, yeah.

  • He can like almost crush my fingers with your fingers.

  • You've got an engineering background.

  • I feel like that's an advantage.

  • Yeah, I think so.

  • I mean, I say an engineering background...

  • -Yeah, but you've made... -I did physics.

  • -That's good enough for me. -Yeah.

  • You've made a paper bridge before in your time, I guess.

  • Yeah, I made cardboard conveyor belts for a project.

  • -Okay, yeah. -Don't ask.

  • I think that's enough.

  • I think so, I've got some ideas.

  • Alright, Taha, please take to the table.

  • Any tactics?

  • Yeah. I think I'm gonna make like a splint and then have two layers of,

  • of pencils on either side to try and get a lot of them.

  • What is that?

  • I think we've picked the right person! I would've just grabbed them.

  • I am so glad you're on our team, is all I can say.

  • I think... I think, I'm like...

  • I'm pretty confident I can get out a sizeable chunk of these.

  • Your time starts when you first touch a pencil.

  • Okay.

  • Oh my god, okay.

  • Oh... err...

  • Right, okay.

  • Okay, so if I put these,

  • and you're gonna tell me, like, time-wise what's going on.

  • Right, so I'm thinking this can be like this

  • -and then if I put half of them here... -Fifteen seconds gone.

  • ... I can use these to hold these,

  • and then put... another half up here.

  • Urgh.

  • You've used half your time.

  • Aargh! Don't do this!

  • And then if I hold them... like this? No.

  • Right, I'm just gonna have to give up on that.

  • Fifteen seconds left.

  • Right...

  • Ten seconds.

  • Three, two, one...

  • That's it! That's it!

  • Alright, I'm gonna come in and sweep these pencils away.

  • -Alright. -There we go.

  • -There's still one on the thing. -There we go.

  • -Alright. -You can put those down.

  • And while we're counting those, let's see how the others did.

  • I could build a little pencil thing that could then hold; that's the best bet.

  • Pencil there, pencil there, pencil there, pencil there, creating a little pencil basket.

  • Oh, this is not as easy as I thought it was gonna be.

  • Maybe if we like flatten them and just lay them all on top.

  • That might be the best way to go, I think.

  • Ooh!

  • This is quite... Ah...

  • Okay, okay.

  • I feel like it's all going horribly wrong already.

  • Wow, okay.

  • Okay, I'm trying to balance as many as I can on here.

  • Oh, Colin, as a practical man, you should just excel at this.

  • Half your time gone.

  • I feel like men might have an advantage here.

  • I'm trying to create, like, a web.

  • I'm starting to think that pencil basket was not the wisest choice.

  • Abandoning pencil basket.

  • -Ten seconds. -Oh, that feels wobbly.

  • I'm happy with this.

  • Five...

  • Three...

  • -One... -S***!

  • Time!

  • -Okay. -How was that for you?

  • That was... like, I'm pretty optimistic now that I've seen that.

  • Erm, no one went for any sort of strategy; it was all kind of just...

  • I mean, they started out with one.

  • Steven had a great plan with his pencil basket.

  • Yeah, I just didn't understand like, yeah,

  • I just felt like it wasn't an efficient use of space.

  • My whole thing came from we went to Pizza Hut once with my uncle,

  • and this was in Pakistan and you have to, they charge every salad bowl.

  • So we got one salad bowl and he was an engineer,

  • so he used the Dorito chips to make...

  • -Oh! -... a building of salad bowl.

  • And so I was like trying to replicate that.

  • -I've got some stats for you. -Okay.

  • Erm, first of all, you got 106 pencils.

  • That one at the end.

  • Yeah, you got more than half there, and that one might make the difference.

  • -Yeah. -I can tell you that the best score was Em Ford.

  • She said she had freakishly long fingers: 142 pencils.

  • Whoa!

  • But I'll also tell you that the worst score, and I won't say who this is: 60.

  • Okay. Okay.

  • You got 106.

  • Yeah.

  • Their average is one hundred and...

  • -... three. -Wow!

  • Yes!

  • Congratulations.

  • That is one point.

  • Your Dorito bowl story worked, I love it.

  • You are above average.

  • Let's see what the second game is.

  • Count backwards from a number, in multiples of another number.

  • You must throw the beanbag in the air while you say each answer,

  • and you must catch it afterwards.

  • -Pick a beanbag. -Orange...

  • -Oh, yellow. -Orange.

  • I'm gonna go with orange.

  • -Yeah. -What's the beanbag for?

  • You have to count, ten, eight, or something like...

  • -Yes? -How are you with mental arithmetic?

  • Oh, dude!

  • Average, I wouldn't say I'm an expert.

  • I got... I was okay to a certain level at school

  • and then as soon as it got more complicated...

  • Mental arithmetic.

  • So, if I ask you to count back from 100 in fives,

  • the answers would be 100, 95, 90, and so on.

  • You can only say each answer while the bag's in the air.

  • If you say the wrong answer, drop the bag,

  • or if you say the answer too early or too late, the chain is broken.

  • Your score is the highest chain you achieve at any point within the one minute.

  • Good luck.

  • I can't multitask to save my life.

  • This may not be your game then(!)

  • No, I don't think it is!

  • Feels like I'm on the Krypton Factor.

  • Not just about maths, this one, is it?

  • -No, it's not. -What do you think?

  • I was so bad at maths.

  • Oh no! It's the multiples.

  • -This is what I was worried about. -Maths tests.

  • Taha's like our maths guy.

  • -This is... -Yeah.

  • This is my thing.

  • Oh, I'm gonna point out that you cannot shout numbers in.

  • -Feel free to shout advice. -Okay.

  • But there's no shouting numbers in at whoever's up there.

  • Can I say things that rhyme with numbers?

  • If you can think of them that fast, then yes.

  • I say yeah.

  • Look, between us, you're the producer of Penny4,

  • -but can you throw beanbags? -I knew you were gonna do this.

  • See, I was gonna say I think I'm better at beanbags than I am at maths, so...

  • -You're better at beanbags than maths? -Yeah, and I'm not...

  • -And you're better
