Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)
The object of the game is to match as many of the ‘celebrities’ as you can.
At the beginning of each round, one contestant has a choice of two questions (A or B) leaving the other one for the other contestant. Each contestant is read a statement with a blank at the end or near the end. Then the six ‘celebrities’ write down their answers to fill in the blank. When finished, the contestant in control gives an answer of his/her own after which the stars reveal their answers. Each time the contestant matches, he/she scores a point.
The game will be played in two rounds and the player who has matched the most at the end of round two wins the game.
