Let's see that's five more, added to fifty-five in game one. (*)

What are your plans for all that loot, G?

Last one in row one:

Game 2.

Row 1.

Clue 1 (10:24a): Boobs.
Clue 2 (10:49a): Violence.

(* The auditor's have informed me that Amyg's correct total at this point in the game is $0.55.)

Let's see...60 cents...can I get an Orange County Eichler for that? If not, maybe Granada Hills.

I have no idea about this one unless it's "What are things in a Russ Meyer flick?"

I didn't even have to play the "Vixen" card.

I'm checking out for a few hours, but I'll let you get started on the next one. We're in row two now, and this one is worth a thick dime.

Game 2.

Row 2.

Hokey smokes, Java! I'm so honored to have you play the game that I'm going to give you that one. I'll even overlook that you forgot to phrase you're response in the form of a question. Welcome to the fight. This time I know our side will win.

You now have ten cents in your PaySky account.

The next clues would have been Blackboard and Naked.

I gotta go now, but look out for new clues later today.

This is your last chance to win fame and fortune playing the MCM 60 Cent Pyramid. But first, here's the scoreboard:

Amg: $00,000.70
Sputnikmoss $00,000.25
Java: $00,000.10
SpinsLPs: $00,000.05
Nichols: $ 00,000.05

This is game three, and we're starting in row one for five cents each. The higher up the pyramid you go, the more you win, but the categories are more difficult.

What's that? Really?

My producers just informed me that all prizes are double in this final round! That's ten cents in the first row, 20 cents in the second row, and four bits at the top of the pyramid.

Here we go . . .

Game 3.

Row 1.

Clue 1 (8:45a): album covers

Album covers certainly are square, Roxy, but that's not correct. And because you are not square, you may answer again.

Game 3.

Row 1.

Clue 1 (8:45a): album covers
Clue 2 (8:56a): bathroom ideas?
Clue 3 (9:13a): vintage or retro looking fabrics
