					                        Who Wants to be a Girl Scout?
Rules: Troop chooses one girl to compete. She gets 3 lifelines: Ask her troop, 50/50, and ask a
troop member. Points are as follows:

1                      First 4 questions - including the 10 point question - are "easy"
2
5
10
20                     Next 4 questions (20, 40, 80 and 160) are "medium"
40
80
160
320                    Last 2 questions (320 and 500) are "hard"
500

If you reach “10”, you keep “10” if you miss the 20, 40 or 80 point question. If you reach “160”,
you keep “160” if you miss later on. You may stop and keep your points at any time (if you hear
a question, don't know the answer, you can stop and take your "points").
