Hollywood Squares


----------oooOooo----------

Readers' Week:

Today’s item is from Byter Vince, a collection of questions and answers from Hollywood Squares. This was an American panel show in which contestants sought to win prizes in a game of noughts and crosses. Instead of placing a nought or a cross on a board, however, they asked celebrities in the noughts and crosses cubes questions. The contestants then had to decide whether the answers given were true. (I think they copied the concept off the Oz version, Celebrity Squares).
