Prizes could be cheap or expensive. A contestant has to pick a number to replace the prize their opponent chooses and if he/she gets a Blank Check,the contestant has to choose the quantity from 1-100 of that prize,not choose another prize for that turn. If the player felt that the next prize would put him/her over the amount, they can call "Say When" @ that point & stop. If they go over the amount and the opponent wins. The opponent also wins if their leftover score is lower than the person who stopped. If a player reaches 0 total, the player wins a cash jackpot. 2 out of 3 determined the champ!
