GameplayEdit

Each round starts with a question. The first player to buzz-in with correct answer got control of the board first. The two contestants playing picked off numbers two at a time. Each time they uncover a match, two pieces of a puzzle was revealed. The first player to solve to puzzle won the round.

Rounds 1 & 2Edit

The round starts with a "Ripper Rhyme". The first player to buzz-in with correct rhyme got control of the board first. The contestants took turns picking off numbers two at a time. Each number hides a picture, each time a player uncovered two pictures that match each other in some way, two pieces of a rebus puzzle was revealed. The winner of each of the round went to play round three.

Round 3Edit

This time instead of a rebus, the contestants are trying to solve what's called the "Superword".

The controlling question in this round featured kids from all around Australia giving clues to a specific subject. The first player to buzz-in with correct subject got control of the board first. The winner of the first two rounds battled it out to solve a super word. This time the board was divided in half; the first ten numbers have pictures behind them, and the last ten hid scrambled words & phrases. Behind some of the boxes are letters to word/phrase/name which are in proper order. The first player to solve the puzzle won a $50 savings bond.

Match a MimeEdit

At the end of the show all four contestants do a special game where they must act out the same gestures as the previous person.
