Blockbusters was a gameshow where three contestants would compete to try and get across a lettered board. In the show it was two against one so the white player would play against the two blue players (the idea that two head are better than one) The contestant would ask Bob for the letter they wanted and they would be asked a question where the answer would begin with that letter. If the player got the question right that letter would turn to that contestants colour, the winner of the round was the one that got right across to the other side of the board, the opposing player would try and block their path when they got a chance. The winner of each round went on to the godl run where the questions were harder and the answers had multiple words.
