Round 4 - Stick or Twist
There are four linked questions for each side, in (hopefully!), ascending order of difficulty.
Question 1 is worth ONE POINT for a correct answer.
If the team on hearing Question 2 elect to stick they remain with one point. If they answer it correctly their score for that round doubles to TWO POINTS. If they get it wrong they forfeit all their points on that round.
Question 3 again doubles the round score to FOUR POINTS, and Question 4 to EIGHT POINTS.
At each stage an incorrect answer will mean forfeiting all points gained for that round.
As soon as a team sticks or gives an incorrect answer the opposition have their go at their four linked questions.
THERE IS NO PASSOVER TO THE OPPOSITION DURING THE COURSE OF THE FOUR LINKED QUESTIONS.
Round 6 - 2 Part Questions
Each question is set in two parts.
If the team to whom it is asked think they know the answer after hearing the first part only they may answer for FOUR POINTS or they may ask for the second part for a possible TWO POINTS.
If they get it wrong after hearing the first part only it passes to the opposing team who may either answer for THREE POINTS or ask for the extra information for ONE POINT.
Similarly if the original team gets it wrong after the second part it passes over for a possible ONE POINT.
ONCE A QUESTION IS PASSED OVER IT CANNOT BE PASSED BACK TO THE ORIGINAL TEAM.
