The 7th game of the preliminaries, is a game that has never been done turn style...until now.  It is blockbusters.  Here is how the game works....it is a 2 out of 3 match.....where we use the 20 hexagon board (16 for the tie-breaker).....check the website for a number layout....one player will take the long path (5 to win) while the other takes the shorter path (4 to win).....in turn, each player will choose a number, in which the letter will be revealed, then the question will be asked, and the player will have 8 seconds to answer.  If wrong, the opponent has a chance to take the hexagon and control of the board with a right answer.  To win, a player must make a path from one end to the other.  First person to win 2 out of 3 games win the match, and plays GOLD RUN for up to $ 40,000.  GOLD RUN - The board has 20 hexagons and the player must go from the left side of the board to the right side of the board (mimimum needed is 5).  Once they select a number, the letters of the answer will be revealed and then the question.  The player will have one shot at getting the correct answer,  if wrong or they pass, the hexagon becomes a block and they must work around it.  They will have 100 seconds to complete the path.  Finishing gold run will earn $ 40,000 less $ 2500 for each block that is on the gold run board.
