Frodo, on your last game, you left with 1,000. Failing to reach the milestone. But now, on your rematch, you did reach it. And you did well... Only using one lifeline.
Frodo, there are 256 levels in Pac-man...
*The crowd moans*
But... an avid player knows, that the final level #256, is a glitch level. It is unplayable. So, there are... 255 playable levels!
You are correct! You are now guaranteed 50,000!!
Now, onto the next question.

You got me worried for a moment, saying there are 256 levels. But then you went on to say Lever 256 is unplayable due to a glitch, so there is only 255 playable levels. That's what threw me at first. I thought the game went on forever, hehe.
Anyway, I got it right.
Now, about burying the game cartridges - I remember reading about that in Retro Gamer a few months ago.
I believe it was in New Mexico.

From this point on, the questions are going to become extra difficult.

And your correct again! 8 is the right answer!
And now, the final question before the million dollar question is coming. But I will now warn you, that your "Skip" lifeline, has been voided, since you made it to this point in the game. You now only have one more lifeline, "Ask a Friend".
