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 questions: 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.
