[Brett] Well, we're back. And Chico Alexander and Thomas Puckett will play for \$76,200 between themselves. Do you two know how the bonus game works? A good example is at http://www.oocities.org/btatsuno/g9bg.html. I'll give you a quick rundown anyway. Chico will give the clues since he ended up as the leader and he will get a series of 10 words. Describing them in 25 clues. He can use as many or as little of them as he wants be he only gets 5 'batches' of clues. then, Thomas gets to guess the words for the clues Chico gave and the game continues until you get all 10 words and win or use all 25 clues without getting all 10 words and lose. You'll get \$1000 to split for every word and the jackpot for all the words.... so Chico, the words are coming.
