The show pits two contestants against each other in a head-to-head quiz. Both players are given 10 chips at the start of the Duel, which they use to select answers. Each question is multiple-choice with four answers, A through D, and is asked to both players simultaneously. Contestants stand on opposite ends of a podium with a screen in the middle, which displays the question and also blocks their view of their opponent. Each side of the podium has four indentations marked A through D, and each contestant can put a chip on each choice to cover it. The first contestant to lock in had the option of putting time pressure on their opponent, known as a Press in the U.S. version and an Accelerator in the British version. When used, a Press or Accelerator puts a seven-second time limit on the opponent, who is automatically locked if they haven't already when time runs out. Each contestant could use this twice per Duel (once in the U.S. version's second season).

Chips lost to incorrect answers are added to a progressive jackpot, except in the U.S. version's second season, where the jackpot was a constant $500,000. In the UK version, players who won four Duels in a row won the jackpot and retired undefeated, while the U.S. version's second season required five wins. In the first season of the U.S. version, the four players with the longest consecutive win streaks (with ties broken by the amounts of money they won) returned on the season finale to play a single-elimination tournament for the jackpot.

* MomentOfAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFrOycBLnuE The first $500,000 winner of the U.S. version in Season 2]], Gabriel, surprised everyone by winning with a 3-to-1 chip disadvantage on a question with all of the answers split. Greenberg even called him a literal [[AWolfInSheepsClothing wolf in sheep's clothing]], when in reality he's more of a BadassNormal due to his unemployed status. The look on the loser's face makes it priceless. * {{Padding}}: While not as bad as other shows that were on the air back then, ''Duel'' holds the dubious distinction of being one of the few shows to end an episode after the players had locked in their answers, thus forcing everyone to wait until the next show to see if they were right.

It wasn't quite the first show to do it. A British kids' show called "Eliminator" did it back in 2003.
