Front Game Rules

Edgar protects the eight categories of the gameThree players competed. In the first round, host Anderson asked the three players a toss-up question worth 10 points. The player who buzzed in and answered correctly got to choose a category off the board, out of eight possible. The contesant was then asked a question worth 20-100 points. If incorrect, the opponent with the lowest score got a chance to steal the points. Every so often, "Edgar the Talking Jukebox" would ask a toss-up question for a bonus prize. At the end of the round, Anderson would ask a question to all three players. Each player wrote down their answer, and got 50 points for being right.

Let's see what the red player wrote...A second round was then played, with 20 point toss-up questions, and questions on the board worth from 40-200 points. At the end of the round, one final question was asked that the players wrote down their answers to, worth 100 points. 100 points were deducted for a wrong answer. The player with the most points at the end of the round won the game and a prize.

End Game

What song does this singer's fans request the most?The contestant now tried to match wits with videotaped footage of a country music star. Anderson would ask a question, and the player would try to guess the answer that the musician gave. Each of the first three questions that were asked won a small prize that was chosen off the board. If the player got all three questions right, he could then try for one more question to win the grand prize. The player could stop after any right answer, but if the contestant picked a wrong answer, the round ended and s/he lost all the prizes earned in the bonus round.

Loogaroo Looks it Over

Not too bad of a show. I like how they give the question to the last place player if the person originally in control gets it wrong. It makes things a little more strategic (although considering the hidden point values, some of the strategy is lost). The bonus round is a little confusing - just how does the champ take home all those bonus prizes described beforehand? Bill Anderson is the perfect emcee for the show, and the atmosphere is suitably twangy.
