Two contestants competed to complete a block of five
consecutive playing cards by guessing whether the next
card to be unveiled would be higher or lower than the
last one. To earn control of the board, one player
predicted how many people out of one hundred would
answer a question a certain way. An opponent then
predicted whether the actual number would be higher
or lower. The player whose prediction was closest
played the card. The first player to win two games
became champ and played the "Money Cards."
