Super Bonuses-- 25 points for teams using the internet; 40 points without. A 20/25 scale may have been used in May 2005.
6 points apiece. Points are divided into two sets of 3. The first 0-3 points are awarded for specific trivial knowledge, reference points, and general command of the topic . The second 0-3 points are allotted for performing skills , energy, humor, physical mayhem, and general "style."
Ultra Bonus-- Scored on a downward sliding scale; worth less and less as the night continues and more clues are revealed. Point values have varied, though the highest possible score is typically 8 or 10 points. In May 2005, the Ultra Bonus was scored on a 16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2 scale.
