NERVE describes itself as a direct democracy, where Watchers decide dares for Players to complete; the two Players with the most Watchers by the end of regulation advance to the final round, where the winner takes all. Watchers can watch from anywhere, but they are encouraged film to live.
Watchers must pay $19.99 to watch their favorite Players for twenty four hours. They can then pay further amounts of their choice to specific Players, if they wish to do so.
- All dares must be filmed on the player's phone.
- There are only two ways to be eliminated: fail or bail a dare.
- Snitches get stitches.
In the film, Prisoner is a third category of NERVE for Players who 'snitch' by alerting the police about NERVE. Prisoners have their lives, and their family's lives, controlled by the game; with the only way out being to win the final round.
