* {{Whammy}}: "Lose (a Square)", where the player had to forfeit one of his previously earned squares. Averted if the player had a square available that was a duplicate of both a subject and a grade level he had earned (for example, getting rid of 8th grade Art while still having 8th grade Science and 10th grade Art).

** This seemed to work to Heather's advantage in Season 3's Marc/Heather/Brian. Brian had one subject and two grade levels left, while Heather had only two subjects and two grade levels. After Brian uncovered the Fire Drill, and Heather won the Pinwheel Maze, she moved to the blue desk, answered two more questions correctly to win the front game, and also win the Honor's Round. It was the exact opposite of another Season 3 episode, Mark/Megan/Frank, in which Frank took Megan's green desk and bombed in the Bonus Round.

This wasn't as straightforward as it seems, though. A few "wild cards" lurked behind some of the squares which could change the game drastically; the most notable being the "Fire Drill". If a Fire Drill was uncovered, all three players had to leave their desks (and their score cards) and race each other in a physical stunt (such as throwing sandwiches into lunch boxes). Winning the Fire Drill got first pick of the desks, while second place got second pick and third place received whatever was left. As the game was scored by color and not person sitting at the desk, the first place player in the Fire Drill inevitably inherited the desk with the highest score. This was particularly nasty if one player had nearly filled in his entire card, only to have a worse player beat him in a Fire Drill near the end of the game; even worse, the outcome of some of the Fire Drills was determined completely ''[[LuckBasedMission at random]]''.
