This is chronicling the 2015 version of Chain Reaction. This version is produced by Sony Pictures Television.

Game FormatEdit

Main GameEdit

Two teams competing against one another to complete a chain of seven words, after the first and last word of the chain are revealed. Each word in the chain is related in some way to the word directly above or below it. By making inferences based on the revealed words and the revealed letters in incomplete words, contestants try to fill in the word chains to increase their scores.


In round one, each correct word was worth $100, round two words were worth $200 and words in round three were worth $300. Whichever team was behind going into a round started the next round (in an event of a tie, the team who did not start the last chain started the next chain).

Betting RoundEdit

In round four (known as the "Betting Round"), teams could wager between $100 and $500 of their bank before being given their letter. If correct, they won their bet and kept control, if not, they lost the money and control. A team automatically lost if they went broke, and the game ended immediately with the opposing team as the winners. If both teams ended the round with money in the bank, then the team with the most money won the game and kept the cash. The losing team received unacknowledged parting gifts.

Superchain (Bonus Round)Edit

The winning team has 45 seconds to guess seven more words. To start, a keyword is given; the seven words involved connect to that word. Then on each word, the first three letters are given one at a time. A correct answer moves on to the next word. The team can pass on a word if they're stuck and the must go back to it, if there's time left on the clock. Guessing all seven words correctly wins $5,000.


This is the second time GSN has revived the show in history, the first time was in 2006 with Dylan Lane.

This revival was paired up with the fourth season of The Chase hosted by Brooke Burns in the same year.

Unlike its previous incarnations before it, similar to Family Feud with Steve Harvey, some of the chains in this version have some very crude and vulgar meanings (i.e. "B*tch Please, "Damn Straight")
