This is a prime-time or syndicated version of The Hollywood Squares that originated in 1971 after as successful run of the daytime version. The object of the game is to get 3 in a row either across, up and down, or diagonally. The contestants choose a celebrity, the host asks the celebrity the question and depending on what the celebrity's response is will depend on whether the contestant will agree or disagree. If the contestant gets the question correct they will get the square; if not the other contestant will get the square. Unless the contestant can win by getting that square then that contestant has to win the square on their own instead of getting it because the other contestant gets the answer wrong. Celebrites are encouraged to bluff the answers. Many times the celebrity will give a quick joke called a zinger. Male contestants are 'X' and Female contestants are 'O'
