They’ve got rid of Trial Run.

Looks to be some new music for some of the show.

New lifeline also, "Swap". If one of the pair is failing at the game, they can use the lifeline and swap places with their partner.

The lives graphic clashes with the ITV DOG.
Universal_r and Josh gave kudos

Even in the old days of the cube, with the lives number graphic on the left of the screen, which forced the ITV dog to the right...why dont the cube just put their graphics on the right?
No specific reason it needs to be on the left?
ITV have prob forgot to move their dog with the cube being off screen for so long now...

Seems a bit of a poor lifeline if some of the games are 2 players

Maybe swap the roles but not much use in that meet in the middle game just shown!

Was that just a Cube break bumper?

I think it looks and sounds pretty good. The graphics are much better than before.

It’s lacking a bit of atmosphere, but I suppose that can’t be helped at the moment.

Also did they ever call them lifelines before? There was a time when shows other than Millionaire used to come up with a different word for them. I think Five Gold Rings was the first show I remember using the term other than Millionaire.

I think it was previously just ‘The Cube will give you...’ rather than lifeline

Also the effects have actually gone slightly backwards! They used to show the game ‘being constructed’ when it was introduced in the later series of the original run
