    Default Tic Tac Dough

    OK, you may have noticed that Match Game Hollywood Squares Hour disappeared. Let's just say we had some problems. FYI, I'm planning on trying that again in January. In the meantime, I decided that I wanted to try a different kind of tic-tac-toe game.

    RULES:
    Two contestants compete. A board of nine subjects is revealed, 2 or 3 of which are considered red categories. The player in the X position (usually the champion) picks one of the subjects, and is asked a question on that subject. A correct answer claims the box, otherwise the square remains vacant. The board shuffles after each pick.

    Every correct answer adds money to a pot. A correct answer on an outer box adds $1,000, while the center square is always a two-part question and is worth $1,500 into the pot.


    RED CATEGORIES:

    In each game, two or three categories are designated as special categories, each of which have a different effect on gameplay, and never shuffle into the center box. These include, but are not limited to:

    DOUBLE OR NOTHING: A question is asked and if answered correctly, the player has the option to take another turn (with the game board remaining the same if the player chooses to take a second turn). The player wins both boxes if the second question is answered correctly and loses both if wrong.

    GRAND QUESTION: A question is asked with the category unknown until the contestant picks the square. Answering the question correctly adds $5,000 to the pot.

    JUMP-IN CATEGORY: A question is asked. First to buzz-in (via PM codes 1-100) has the right to answer with a correct guess earning the box, otherwise the opponent gets a chance to answer. If neither is correct, the box is unclaimed.

    NUMBER PLEASE: A question is asked with a numerical answer. The contestant guesses the answer and if correct, they earn the box. Otherwise, the opponent can earn the box by correctly guessing if the correct answer is higher or lower than the first player's guess. If not, the first player wins the square.

    ...these are just a sample of the different red categories that can be chosen.

    WINNING:

    The first player to make three in a row of their symbol wins the current pot; the loser receives $250 for each square they claimed, with a minimum of $500 guaranteed. If a game ends in a tie (neither player is able to get three in a row), another game is played with the pot carrying over. The same contestants play until a winner is crowned, and all champions continue to play until they are defeated.

    For every five contestants a champion defeats, the champion is awarded a new car!

    BEAT THE DRAGON:

    The board now consists of numbers 1 to 9. Six of the numbers hide cash: $500, $750, $1,250, $1,500, $2,000 and $2,500. Two of them hide the words Tic and Tac. The remaining square hides the Dragon. The object is to accumulate $5,000 or more or uncover Tic and Tac before finding the Dragon. If the player manages to do so, they win a prize package that changes with each bonus game. The contestant can stop at any point during the round, because finding the Dragon causes the contestant to lose any money accumulated in the round (main game winnings are always safe).

    If the player finds Tic and Tac, the player wins the Tic-Tac-Pot, starting at $10,000 and growing by $1,000 per bonus game until claimed. If the player finds Tic and Tac on their first two picks, they win double the current value of the pot.

    I need two contestants to get this started. Who wants to play?

    (the board lights up, theme)

    From Hollywood, it's everybody's game of strategy, knowledge and fun! It's



    With your host, Doctor Who!


    (cheers and applause)

    Thank you Rich Fields! Thank you, good evening, and welcome to Tic-Tac-Dough. I'm just going to let the game speak for itself here; Tic Tac Toe with trivia is much more exciting than it seems. And we have two players to prove it! Who are they, Rich?


    (contestant intro cue)

    Our contestant in the X position has an aspiration to appear on all the game shows on Serebii, please welcome BlazikenBlitz!

    (intro shifts keys)

    And challenging him in the O position, please welcome Ansem the Wise!

    (cue finishes)


    Welcome to the game, both of you. It's a pleasure, but only one of you will go on to face the dragon. To the folks watching at home, just watch, you'll get the hang of it quickly. Here comes the board.


    [A][B][C]
    [D][E][F]
    [G][H][I]



    A = POTLUCK PIX
    B = SPIRIT OF '76
    C = DOUBLE OR NOTHING
    D = GAME SHOWS
    E = GEOMETRY
    F = HOLIDAYS AND OBSERVANCES
    G = TRIVIA DARE
    H = ASTRONOMY
    I = GRAND QUESTION


    I'll explain Trivia Dare if and when either of you picks it. For now, Blitz, you're in the X position, you get to pick first.

    And here is the question.

    This four-sided figure in Euclidean Geometry must have two parallel sides and two that are non-parallel. The two parallel sides are referred to as bases while the other two are called legs. To find the area of this figure, you must add the lengths of both bases, multiply that by its height and divide the result in half.

    For the square, name this figure.

    Here's your question.

    This legendary host was first discovered on the radio show Winner Take All in 1946. Original host Ward Wilson left after three months and executives were so pleased by his performance that he stayed on until Bud Collyer replaced him in 1950. He is the most prolific game show host in the history of the genre, having hosted shows like the original Price is Right. Name this host.

    That isn't who it is, actually. The most prolific host in the genre was Bill Cullen. Truly one of the greats.

    Anyhow, Ansem, the board is yours once we shuffle...

    G = TRIVIA DARE
    H = ASTRONOMY
    I = GRAND QUESTION

    Alright then, what do you want from the board?

    Okay, we're good to go, so here's your question.

    This planet, the second largest in our solar system, was named after the Roman god of agriculture, liberation and time. It also has the system's second-largest moon, Titan. Name the planet.

    The only reason I'm in a bind is because of my own decisions, so square F, you're my only redemption hope.

    (I think you might be looking at the pre-shuffle board, that sets up Ansem to win. Are you sure you didn't mean B?)

    Alright, then. For the block...

    This incident took place on March 5, 1770 which began when British Private Hugh White struck Eric Garrick with his musket. A crowd of townspeople gathered and proceeded to throw snowballs at White and British soldiers who came to his aid until the redcoats fired, killing three Americans in the crowd.

    For the block, name that event.

    I'm sorry, too much time. It was the Boston Massacre.

    Ansem, you've lucked out, you could win on this pick depending on how the board feels.
