Two teams, each consisting of one of the team captains, and two guests compete in guessing the definitions of obscure words.

A word is given and each member of one team gives one of three possible definitions for that word. Only one of those definitions is correct. If the other team chooses the correct definition, they score one point; if they are wrong, however, the bluffing team gets the point.

The team with the most points at the end of the show wins the game.


This was the late Bob Holness' last game show before his retirement in 2003, and his death in 2012.
