  • Hardback

Containing 50 of the most difficult chases where contestants actually beat the Chaser, this book challenges you to do the same and defeat one of the show's stars: The Governess, The Beast, The Sinnerman, The Barrister and The Vixen. Have you got what it takes to beat them at their own game, and answer the questions that they couldn't?

Biographical Notes

The Chase, hosted by Bradley Walsh, is ITV's most popular teatime show and a must see for millions of quiz fans. Contestants are set the task of reaching the final chase where they can win a cashpot worth thousands. However, in their way is the common enemy... The Chaser. Whether it's Anne (The Governess), Shaun (The Barrister), Mark (The Beast), Paul (The Sinnerman) or Jenny (The Vixen), the contestant will have to survive a duel with one of the finest minds in the country and then hope the survivors' collective brain power is enough to outwit the Chaser's in the show's climax.

This is less a general knowledge quiz, more a race. Get over the line and you win the pot; get caught and you lose the lot.
