  • In the 2nd incarnation of the revised classic, 2 contestants & 1 a returning champion were paired with 2 celebrity guests. The passwords for which only 1-word clues could be given that led to the identity of a famous person, place, thing, title, etc. with up to 5 passwords per round. The 1st 2 rounds were worth $100 with all subsequent rounds worth $100 more than the previous round. The winner of the 2nd round that collected $200 and that'll be played a new feature "Cashword" where the celebrity could give up to 3 clues to help his/her partner guess an extra-difficult password; the payoff was $1,000 plus $1,000 for each time it was not won. The 1st to raise $500 was the champion and played the bonus round. Ten passwords, each beginning with a different and successive letter of the alphabet (e.g., A through J) were shown one at a time. The contestant won $100 per correct guess with a $5,000 payoff for guessing all 10 within the 60-second time limit; the jackpot grew by $5,000 for each time the bonus round was not won, leading to sometimes huge jackpots of $50,000 or more. An illegal clue threw the word out, as well as the contestant's chance at winning the jackpot, though the end game could still be played for $100 for every word if any remained. Players continued until defeated or winning 5 games. On occasion, all-celebrity weeks were featured with the celebrities each playing for a favorite charity.
