Each level consists of a series of Trivia questions you must answer correctly to score points and reach the required point total on the Trivia Ladder for that level. But, you've got to do it before you run out of turns! Click one of the three category windows to generate a new trivia question for the chosen category and difficulty. The window on the left always represents the easiest question. Point value is assigned to each question based on difficulty. Read the trivia question and select your answer by clicking the A, B, C, or D button with your mouse. Make your answer before the timer above the answers runs out to score points. Each time you answer a question correctly, the meter on the Trivia Ladder will rise. When the meter reaches a score rung it will light up. Incorrect answers will cause the meter to fall to the nearest lit rung. The level is completed when the meter reaches the top. Correctly answering a question that has a "Lightning Round" graphic attached to it will enable you to take part in a bonus round. During this fast-paced mode of play, you will need to answer ten trivia questions from various categories in 60 seconds. Points earned will be applied to your overall score.
