    This is tough. Going with the notion that 8th Graders can only name a handful of Presidents my team and I figure very recent Presidents also made the list. We've narrowed it down to Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan. With two more answer left on the board I have a good feeling they may both be up there. Originally I was going to say Clinton but considering that Reagan's death in 2004 was major media event I think 8th Graders would remember still in 2005. It's a logical answer I just hope he's up there.

    I'm going to say Ronald Reagan.

    Also, in the overall scheme of things, Reagan is greater, at least according to the poll I read which had him listed as the 6th most important president of all time.

    For the steal ... show us ... Ronald Reagan!

    1. JFK[hl=gold]_________________[/hl] 29
    2. George Washington[hl=gold]_ _[/hl] 22
    3. [hl=gold]____________________[/hl]
    4. Ronald Reagan[hl=gold]___ ___[/hl] 11
    5. Abraham Lincoln[hl=gold]_____[/hl] 07
    6. FDR[hl=gold]_______________ _[/hl] 05

    Bank Value: 74

    And for the second time in as many chances, the Joneses have stolen the bank from the Brigade of DOOM. That increases the Joneses' lead to 143-0.

    But, the point values double next round, so in no way is C&G out of this. New round in a jiffy!

    First, show us the missing answer!

    1. JFK[hl=gold]_________________[/hl] 29
    2. George Washington[hl=gold]_ _[/hl] 22
    3. Bill Clinton[hl=gold]________ __[/hl] 18
    4. Ronald Reagan[hl=gold]____ __[/hl] 11
    5. Abraham Lincoln[hl=gold]_____[/hl] 07
    6. FDR[hl=gold]_______________ _[/hl] 05

    [audience_in_unison]Bill Clinton![/audience_in_unison]

    The Score is [hl=maroon]The Joneses[/hl] 143, [hl=yellow]Inter-Spectacular Hyper Galactic Great Census & Games Brigade (of DOOM)[/hl] 0


    Captain_Typho, Luigi, an important question is coming your way.

    The Point values are doubled.

    For this question, we surveyed 100 Americans.

    The top five answers are on the board ...

    1. [hl=gold]__________[/hl]
    2. [hl=gold]__________[/hl]
    3. [hl=gold]__________[/hl]
    4. [hl=gold]__________[/hl]
    5. [hl=gold]__________[/hl]

    And the question has been PMed

    I had that entire board figured out. It's sad that I remember 8th grade so well. From the classics of Washington and Lincoln, to the greatest generation and FDR, to the "saint"ly depictions of Kennedy in Middle School history books, to the topical Clinton and Reagan. **sigh**.

    The Point values are doubled.

    For this question, we surveyed 100 Americans.

    The top five answers are on the board ...

    Name a type of fish you order in a restaurant

    Captain_Typho: Flounder

    1. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    2. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    3. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    4. Flounder[hl=gold] _ _[/hl] 04
    5. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]

    Up there, but plenty of space for the Brigade of DOOM to once again take control of the board.

    EmpireForever: Salmon


    1. Salmon[hl=gold]___ _[/hl] 61
    2. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    3. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    4. Flounder[hl=gold] _ _[/hl] 04
    5. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]

    Bank Value: 65 * 2 = 130

    That once again gives control of the board to the Brigade of Doom, which leads me to believe the Joneses have you exactly where they want you.

    BaSSiL, Name a type of fish you order in a restaurant

    I'll go with something that EVERY ONE in one of my classes, and that's about thirty people, would've said. So, if it's not up there at least we'll know this question is region specific:

    Catfish
