                             I.  Game Overview

The game itself is pretty self-explanatory. You have 15 trivia questions you
must answer, and the prize value goes up with each question. The goal of the
game is to answer as many questions as possible and win as much money as
possible, simple, eh? The title screen shows Regis mouthing the words "Who
wants to be a Millionaire?" (no voice) and holding a hand of bills. You can
then choose how many players you want, and set the sound options. Type in your
name, and you will start the game. Here are the prize values for each of the 15

15 - $1 MILLION  <-- Grand Prize
14 - $500,000
13 - $250,000
12 - $125,000
11 - $64,000
10 - $32,000  <-- Marker
 9 - $16,000
 8 - $8,000
 7 - $4,000
 6 - $2,000
 5 - $1,000  <-- Marker
 4 - $500
 3 - $300
 2 - $200
 1 - $100

Every 5 questions is your "marker" meaning, if you get any of the next 5
questions wrong, you will walk away with at least that much money.  Of course,
when you answer the 15th question correctly, you win the grand prize of
$1,000,000. If you answer a question incorrectly, you get Game Over, and have
to start again from Question #1. If you are stumped by one of the questions,
you have 3 lifelines to help you out. The "50/50" lifeline, the "Phone a
Friend" Lifeline, and a "Poll the Audience" lifeline.  The "50/50" lifeline
will eliminate 2 of the wrong answers, leaving you with the correct answer and
a wrong answer.

The "Phone a Friend" lifeline will call a random friend, and will give you that
"friend's" opinion on what the answer is. Sometimes they may be right,
sometimes they may be wrong. The final lifeline is the "Poll the Audience"
lifeline (my personal favorite) which will Poll the studio audience and get
their votes for which answer they think is right. Most of the time, they will
be right, but there are times when they can be wrong. You may only use each
lifeline 1 time per game, and you can use multiple lifelines on 1 question (if
you wish.) Those are pretty much the basics of the game, and that's all you
should need to know.

                             II.  Answer Listing

Below you will find the answers to (currently) most of the questions in the
game. To make life easier, I've listed them sort of chronologically, from the
lower valued questions to the higher valued questions, otherwise they are in no
specific order. To find a question quickly, use CTRL + F on your keyboard to
type in a keyword (Apple + F for Mac users.)
