Two contestants, usually female, faced their respective game boards which, when opened, revealed a drawing. The objective was to find a hidden object within the drawing and successfully trace its outline. In order to do so, the players had to answer true-or-false questions and score points based on a timer clicking down from 10. A correct answer removed part of the picture (the camouflage) and the player had 10 seconds to find the object and trace its outline with a long stick. For each pass or mistraced picture, the value of the board (which began at 200 points) was reduced by 10 points. Once a player reached 30 points, she was shown a picture of the object.. The winner received a prize package based on her total score, and the higher scorer of the day played the bonus round.
