Three contestants tried to guess what they had in common with a fourth unseen person. Contestants had three minutes to question each other to uncover the common link. It could range from a girl three fellows have dated to a photographer who took baby pictures of all three. Clues to the common bond were paid from a jackpot that started at $500. The first player to figure out the connection won whatever money was left.

The player with the best time of the week returned at the end of the show for a chance at an additional $1,000. They were shown three pictures on a screen that flashed one by one, and they had to figure out what they had in common.
