    Here's another time-wasting game. You get a category and, on a board that looks like a Jeopardy board, you have 16 items. You try to pick the 11 items that fit the category without getting one wrong. The more you get, the more "money" you get. Once you get one wrong, it's own to the next category. If you know the category, it's easy. If you don't, it's a guessing game.</a>

    Ran one category, Baseball Jargon. Did ok in First Lady First Names.

    Bonus category was Egyptian Pharoahs of the 15th Century (or something like that).

    Ended up with $2025.

    With the help of my 9-year-old running the Pokemon category, I got $3,300.

    Why can't I get those categories.
    I get stuck with categories like Beauty & the Beast characters, medical equipment, marsupials, drummers, Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeers.
    and the categories I should do good in (Grammy Song of the Year winners, Slam Dunk Contest winners), I crap out on after 7 correct and get the Blitz.

    This must be a pretty wide-ranging game because I haven't seen some of these categories y'all are mentioning.

    I've seen that damn Pokemon Characters category more than I care to, tho.

    Damn, this game is addicting...

    $6,475... and I'm really, Really, REALLY tired of getting Robert Frost poems, Red Hot Chili Peppers singles, Titans (and not the CS Fullerton types) and Quentin Tarantino characters.

    Oh, and WTF is "Egyptian Pharoahs of the Fourth Dynasty" doing here? Are you kidding?

    WW I battles, Heisman winners, FIFA World Cup Champions, Brady Bunch and Shakespeare plays have come to the rescue. I ran all five of those. ;D
