Scott McRae (2000-2001)
|Miss Bytes (voiced by Sarah Moore)|
A replacement for the now dead kids show Now You See It for the new millennium.
Round 1 & 2 (Small Screen Game)Edit
Miss Bytes will introduce the first 2 players. The round works with the player in control choosing one category from a list of six. The categories used were Screen Dreams, Planet Earth, Sounds, True Blue, Techno & Sweating It Out. Once a category was chosen, the host will reveal a scrambled word and put one letter in its proper position on the bottom of the screen, followed by a clue. Then another letter also from the scramble and representing the first letter will appear at the top of the screen, then a question is asked. The first player to buzz in and guess it correctly gets 1 point and downloading the letter down to its proper position at the bottom and the player who got it right will try to guess the answer correctly for an additional 4 points (in total 5 points). After a contestant says the answer at the top of the screen and then downloaded the letter that was on the top of the screen before and the contestant doesn't know the main answer, another letter will be at the top of the screen for someone to guess it. Play continues until someone guesses the main answer right. Sometimes when a letter is on the top of the screen, if both contestants do not press the buzzers in time or one contestant guesses the wrong answer/doesn't know and then the other contestant guesses the wrong answer/doesn't know, the host will give the answer and then download the letter and play goes back to the top of the screen to attempt the correct answer. The player to score 10 points first will win that round and come back in Round 3. Round 2 is the same thing but with different players. The player with the least points will get prizes.
Round 3 (Big Screen Game)Edit
The two players of the first two round come back to play the final round. The round is played with scrambled words and up to five clues for each. Each word starts at 5 points with 1 point deducted for each letter moved to its proper place and new clue. When the bell rings the rest of the round will be played for 60 seconds and the points are doubled to 10 points minus two for each properly placed letter and new clue. The player with most points when time is up wins the game. If both contestants are tied at the end of the round, one final word is given. The player who buzzes in with the correct answer wins the game. Both players who appeared on that round will get prizes but the winner of the game goes on to the bonus round.
The highest recorded score was 94-4, recorded in October 2002 by 11-year old Kavel Gounden of Kenmore South State School.
During Scott's run, before the bonus round game, the player had to chose one category to play for this round; the categories were Television & Movies, People & Places, Music, Australia, Technology & Sport. The round is played on a game board with four lines of blank spaces. During the final break, nine letters are chosen. When the show came back, the host reveals the chosen letters and they are downloaded into the board, making several of the blanks filled in with those letter. Now the winning player will have 40 seconds to match the lines with the questions asked. To answer, the winning player say the numbered lines and then give the answer. The player will say for example: Line 1, Athens. During Scott's run, the lines were lettered instead of numbered. The player will say for example: B, Godzilla. If the player doesn't know the right answer, the player must say "Pass!" and come back to the clue later if there is enough time. If the winning player can match all four answers to questions, s/he wins bonus prizes.
