The only sports game show taped in a sports bar.

GameplayEdit

Four contestants sat at the bar area and answered sports related trivia questions. This show's main feature was the format of choosing one of two half questions previously seen on the short-lived Your Number's Up & the failed pilot Twisters.

Round 1Edit

In round one, each contestant played individually. Each contestant was given $50 to start, then each contestant in turn picked a half question. Each time a question was chosen, host Green read the rest of the question afterwhich the contestant in control answered. Each correct answer was worth $50 more and on the third question, the contestant in control bet as much of his money as he wanted. A correct answer added the wager, but an incorrect answer deducted the wager. So each player can earn up to $300 on their turns.

Rounds 2 & 3 (Double Play)Edit

In the next two rounds, all four contestants faced-off simultaneously. On each question chosen by the player in control & finished by Tom, the first player to buzz-in with a correct answer won the money and a chance at a Double Play by choosing another question. Correct answers in round two were worth $50 and correct answers in round three were worth $100. Incorrect answers deducted the money.

Playoff RoundEdit

In the fourth & final round, the players were arranged & lined up according to their scores. The third & fourth place players stood at the bottom, the second place player stood in the middle, and the first place player stood at the top.

Face-offs were played with two players at a time with the leader of the two players choosing all the questions. Another thing the makes this round different from other rounds was that instead of having a new question replacing the chosen one, there were two new questions everytime. The first player to answer three questions correctly went on to face the next highest player. The two lowest players played first with the winner of those two players facing off against the second place player. The winner of the second face-off won the right to battle the highest scoring player. And finally the winner of the final face-off won the game and returned to play in Friday's game against the winners of the other games played that week. The winner of Friday's game won the combined total of all the daily winners' scores and advanced in the tournament for $50,000 in season 1 and $25,000 in season 2.

TriviaEdit

Upon a player buzzing in to answer in the middle two rounds, his score flashed.

The time's up buzzer sound was taken from the 80s through 90s Pyramid (also a Stewart family show), which used when running out of time to answer the question.
