Rules Groups will play rather than individual contestants. Groups should work cooperatively to determine a “final answer” to questions. For math questions, calculators are encouraged.

More Rules If a question is answered correctly, the whole advisory advances up the game board. If a question is answered incorrectly, the whole advisory will fall down to either the \$100 level or the lowest “safe level.” The safe levels are indicated with a on the scoreboard.

Lifelines 50/50 will eliminate 3 choices per question. Ask the Audience – if the group wants, they can poll the other groups to select an answer. Each group is its own phone-a-friend. This does not count toward the 3 lifelines. A total of 3 lifelines can be used (50/50 or Ask the Audience in any combination). If a wrong answer causes the play to restart at the \$100 level, a new game begins, resulting in 3 lifelines being available for the next round.
