The boardgame version of the widely popular television show most notably hosted by Dick Clark. The object of the game is to describe items of a given subject to one's teammate as quickly as possible. Each team has thirty seconds for each list. The team with the most points after three rounds advances to the "Winners Circle" round.

In the "Winners Circle" one teammate must make a list of items which fit each of six different categories. If the teammate can guess all six subjects in under sixty seconds the team wins the $10,000 (or $20,000 or $25,000, etc.) Exception: The Milton Bradley "Winners Circle" round consisted of descriptions of items not list making.
