Welcome to the 2012 Game Show Decathlon, our 5th year of doing this summer long event.  Our first event, is a game we played on the 1st year of this tournament, Rhyme & Reason.  It is based on the 70's game show hosted by Bob Eubanks (episodes are on You Tube to view).  here is how the game is played.  A player will choose one of the 4 question envelopes, and you will get part of a rhyme, and what the players must do is think up TWO words that rhyme the last word of the opening of the rhyme.  Their first word is the PRIMARY WORD (Worth $ 1500), and the second word the BOTTOM WORD (worth $ 1000).  Plyaers can choose words used by opponents, but they will be screened so they won';t know they did.  Then each player will choose one celebrity (of the 6) to hopefully match their word.  If both words match, they earn $ 2500 if it takes 2 celebrities, or $ 2000 if it takes 3 celebrities.  This happens for the first two rounds.  Then the final round, they will choose one rhyme, and then each player chooses a celebrity.  If the player matches the word from the celebrity they earn $ 10,000 but if it matches an opponents one, then they earn $ 5000.  The player with the most money after 3 rounds , wins and plays the bonus round.


Bonus Round: The player will play the final rhyme not picked, and will be given 10 words that could have been picked by the celebrities (the 6 words the celebrities thought up and 4 dud words).  the player will choose any 3 words that they think will match the celebrity.  Then will choose a celebrity one at a time, hoping to match all 3 words.  If the player matches all 3 words with 3 celebrities, they win $ 40000, if it takes 4, $ 30000, 5 will net $ 25000, and using all 6 will win $ 20000.  Match 2 of the 3 words will earn $ 7500, while matching 1 will earn $ 2500.
