The panel tried to identify phrases, titles, and expressions sent in by viewers. A clue was given and each panelist was allowed to ask a question about the phrase. If the phrases stumped the panel, the viewer would receive a cash prize. The panelist with the highest number of "knockdowns" had to identify a penalty phrase drawn from a treasure chest. Failure to do so doubled the home viewer's winnings.
