Title: Pyramid 7-11 question
Post by: Twentington on October 11, 2014, 03:01:21 PM
This has probably been asked before, butů

Early on, the "7-11" bonus on Pyramid offered $50 per word, or $1,100 for all seven. Did anyone ever take the $50 per word option?

I recall that too.  What I don't recall however is if anybody ever chose to go for $50 per answer only to end up getting 7 out of 7 and regretting having not gone for the full $1,100.  Anybody recall or aware of that oddity happening?

Here's a player taking the $50 option before Dick can even offer it.
