Ovation Brands and Furr's Fresh Buffet Turn Family Night into Game Night with New 'IDIOTEST' Promotion, Starting March 2

Ovation Brands’ portfolio of restaurants – Old Country Buffet, Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet and Country Buffet – as well as Furr’s Fresh Buffet are sparking some kid-friendly competition with their latest Family Night promotion inspired by GSN’s  family game show, IDIOTEST. Starting Thursday, March 2, 2017, kids will be challenged to flex their brainpower and creativity, while having fun at their favorite buffet restaurant. During Family Night, kids eat for $1.99 from 4 p.m. to close and activities take place from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Activities may vary by location.

“The partnership with GSN features wholesome fun that the entire family may enjoy together, which is our primary goal with Family Night,” said Mike Griffith, Director of Marketing for Ovation Brands and Furr’s Fresh Buffet. “We are excited to offer this particular program because it encourages children to utilize their thinking and creativity skills, which is essential for their growth and development.”

IDIOTEST, based on the highly popular app game, pits two pairs of contestants against each other in several rounds of visual brain teasers that look deceptively simple, but whose answers actually require a keen eye, quick mind and heightened sense of logic. Every quiz involves a colorful and often whimsical scene that tests observation and attention to detail. IDIOTEST airs on GSN every Thursday at 10/9c.

The six-week IDIOTEST Family Night promotion will feature different themes and activities, including games and craft projects, every Thursday night. The following are the scheduled weekly themes.

  • March 2 – Brain Games
  • March 9 – Trivia Time!
  • March 16 – Game Show Night
  • March 23 – Kidiotest!
  • March 30 – Act it Out!
  • April 6 – Spin to Win

IDIOTEST, hosted by comedian Ben Gleib and based on the highly popular app game, pits two pairs of contestants against each other in several rounds of visual brain teasers that look deceptively simple, but whose answers actually require a sharp eye, quick mind and heightened sense of logic. Every question involves a fun, colorful and often whimsical scene that tests observation and attention to detail.  Contestants play the game on giant touch screens, trying to win money…or at least not look stupid.  If they fail at both, Gleib is always ready with his irreverent wit and hilarious observational humor. Watch IDIOTEST on Thursdays 10/9C only on GSN, the leader in game show entertainment across multimedia.
