The gameplay for 'The Chase' follows a format wherein each contestant needs to answer as many questions as possible within one minute, to cash in more, money. The contestant then goes up against 'The Chaser' where they both must now answer a series of questions, where the contestant's focus is to move the money along the gameboard, without being caught by the chaser.
