23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
Two-season wonder from GSN hosted by Bob Goen, in which two players competed in a word game that's a bit of a cross between Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!.The first question simply revealed one letter at a time until someone rang in, to determine who started. From then on, Bob asked trivia questions. A randomizer hopped along a blank word puzzle which spelled out a trivia question; once the randomizer stopped, the players took turns answering more trivia questions. They were given the answer, but scrambled with one letter added; correctly unscrambling the answer dropped the extra letter into the word puzzle. If the contestant thought they knew the question, they could stop and read it for five points.Round 2 was the same, with doubled values, and the answer to the question was no longer spotted at the top of the round.
