SINGAPORE –– Instead of "this is your final boarding call," passengers at Singapore's Changi International Airport may be hearing: "Is that your final answer?"

Changi, an airport known for its luxury and efficiency, has launched a new trivia "game show" for passengers to play while they wait.

Up to 30 passengers at a time sit at electronic consoles while a host shouts out number-based questions such as the weight of a certain type of airliner.

The players key in two numbers – a minimum and maximum – and win more points if they give the correct answer within the smallest range. Points are tallied at the end of a 10-question round, and the winner walks away with a voucher worth about $540 to be used at airport shops.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore started "What's Your Range?" on Dec. 15 at a cost of $540,000.

"We noticed the worldwide revival of interest in game shows like 'Big Brother' and 'Survivor,' CAAS said in a statement. "At the same time, perennial favorites like 'Wheel of Fortune' and ('Who Wants to be a Millionaire?') were also receiving interest in new markets."

"Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" is wildly popular in Singapore; a local TV station airs a homegrown version of the game, which started in Britain. An American version became a runaway hit in the United States.

Changi International Airport, a major Asian air travel hub, is known its ritzy transit passenger facilities including an orchid garden, movie theater and swimming pool.

Changi's Movie Theatrette is located above the Fern Garden, beside the Transit Hotel / Timezone Games Arcade at the Third Floor in Terminal 2.

Whats your range?

20 people get asked 10 questions of which we have to enter in a min value and a max value and hope your answer falls in it.

Pity I sucked at it, even with 2 attempts, however, I got a postcard.

They have one in terminal 1 and 2. Runs ever hour or so in the afternoons. Good inititive, not much to the game however. Good thing its not on TV.

Geez I luv Changi Airport. Ands it so close to perth.
