In "The Floor," 100 quiz fanatics face off in quiz duels to represent their knowledge. The goal is to conquer the entire floor and take home a huge cash prize. A random contestant challenges an adjoining opponent in a quiz duel. They play against each other in the category of the opponent's square. Categories range from 'famous athletes' to 'Hollywood actors' and from ‘iconic buildings’ to 'mammals'. All questions are visually supported by photographs. The winner of a duel conquers his opponent's square, gaining more ground - the loser leaves the game. The further the game progresses, the more exciting the duels become and the higher the stakes.
