10 seconds of sweep time

Premise[edit | edit source]

David will show the contestants a word whose letters are blanked out. As he provides three clues that correspond to the product in a relevant, synonymous, or antonymous way, letters are progressively added to the word in reverse order, starting with the last letter and of course ending with the first letter . The contestants must then guess the answer before the word is filled in and even before they hear the high pitched 30 second shootout buzzer sound effect. The player to get each correct answer receives 10 seconds to add to their sweep time but later on when the reverse game was played the host will say okay then the host will spell the whole grocery word backwards then forwards and he will ask the contestants if they can guess what is the grocery word he spelled out and whoever the contestant may be may guess the grocery word and if they guess the word correctly they get 20 seconds added on to their sweep time .

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • Random Reveal - As clues were given, letters are progressively added randomly to the word.
  • First and Last - Clues are given but only the first and last letters will be revealed.
  • Random Letters - Random letters are revealed, creating a partially-filled in name.
  • Scrambled Letters - A product name is show with its letters scrambled. Clues were given and the player had to unscrambled the name. This was a common form of the Round Robin game.
