I got the teeth correction right, but went out before you did (I don't remember the question). You get an extra life for playing 5 days in a row. Apparently you can also purchase extra lives ($1.99 for one, $4.99 for three) although you can only use one per game.

Doesn't the 5 day thing restart after using? I'm saying I've had consecutive lives and not bought them.

What a deal! you can buy an extra life for $1.99 and maybe win 85 cents!

I don't think so - I think you can accumulate the extra lives.

You get a extra life for each 5 day streak, and can accumulate them.

As long as I could start over at 16 before I broke my back, I do that.

So you're saying your life since 16 is not worth $1.99? Got it.

I survived the 80s until Q10. I knew 11 & 12 too. I'll have an extra life next time.

I won $2.71!

I noticed that every one of the BBs went out at the same time but I didn't see which question.

Do you all know about the two-finger swipe trick to get a free extra life? I did this last night after playing, and it worked on my iPod Touch. Supposebly, it works on Android, too.

Pasta shapes? I memorized the ones I didn't know years ago because BAM kept asking about them.

I rarely get to play the noon HQ game as I'm usually on a conference call.
