James: The rules are simple, I’m going to ask these people one by one 16 questions. If they get three wrong, the game
is over. If they cheat, the game is over. However, if they succeed, everybody wins. Now, just so you can keep track
at home, the people who answered correctly will hold up a green check like this. The people who answered
incorrectly will hold up a red X like this. Okay, now, we normally play for $100 per person. However, the last two groups
couldn’t answer enough questions correctly to win. So we have rolled their prize money over to this group and you are all now competing for $300 each.
