Wowowee Wilyonaryo: What was the design flaw?

This is in reaction to what ABS-CBN says as a “corrected game design flaw” on the “Wilyonaryo” game segment of the popular show, “Wowowee”.

But why should there be such a “design flaw” in the first place?

Let’s focus on the props used for the “Wilyonaryo” game segment. If a responsible person or game designer were to make a good design, then one of the top design criteria would be to ensure that the box would only accommodate a single number card at any given time.

So what exactly was the design flaw that was corrected?

1) Did they make provisions on the box for additional number slots? If so, why would they? Every box would have to be cleared of its contents and shuffled prior to every episode anyway, right?

2) Was it an operational design flaw on their pre-game preparations? Which is doubtful since it’s highly unlikely for a person to inadvertently put in more than two numbers inside each box, unless…

As a learning experience, it would be better for the Department of Trade and Industry to inspect and approve all props and game design operations for all Filipino TV shows, or any DTI sanctioned event for that matter, prior to giving out permits from now on. Or is this being done now?

And in the interest of truth and public welfare, perhaps the studio should have clearly explained what the design flaw was. This would have eliminated some of the questions that have been nagging a lot of people.

So what do you think?
