In 1948 the Superman Radio Quiz Master Games was part of a promotional for the Superman radio show. It was sponsored by Breck Candy Company of Chicago, and B. Goodman of Philadelphia. This game was very similar to the Radio Quiz Master Stunts game, that sold in stores for 10¢, just 4 years before.

All players gather around a table or they may sit on chairs in a row. Any number can play. One person is chosen as the "Radio Quiz Master". He sits at the head, turns the dial and asks the questions as they appear in the slot. Always start with question #1. If the first person fails to answer correctly, then the mike is passed to the next person; so on down the line until the #1 question has been answered. Each person must always talk into the mike. Person answering correctly is given 10 points. The Radio Quiz Master is the only person permitted to turn the dial to find the hidden answer shown below the question. After #1 question has been answered, turn to #2 and go on with the quiz. Person receiving the most points is the winner.

Press out and fold microphone as you would fold any box. Bend back on all scored lines, insert tabs in slots. Next, fold base as marked and insert tabs (B) in slots (B) on microphone. Your mike will look just like the picture shown on the front when completed.

Interesting Way To Play "Radio Quiz Master Stunts"

Players sit on chairs lined up in a row facing the "Radio Quiz Master" who sits at a card fable with the mike and dial. One person at time is called up before the mike. The "Radio Quiz Master" turns the dial and reads each act as it appears in the slot. Contestant talks into the mike and does the stunt indicated. Should he fail to do it well, he is given the gong. Should the act be well done, the rest of the players applaud him. Each player in turn k given the chance to do the same stunt before the "Quiz Master" turns the dial. Person doing the stunt best is given a score of 10. (This is decided by the players before the next stunt comes up.) Person receiving the highest score after all stunts hove been tried is the winner and may be given a prize, if desired.
