    Who wants to be a millionaire - 900 questions and answers (v. 2.2)
    Sega Dreamcast (UK version)
    Written by Magnus Andersson, between December 2001 - March 2002
    This FAQ is specially dedicated for my friend
    Lisa in Stockholm, Sweden. You are a funny
    life-line in real life as well... ;)

    1. About this FAQ
    You may spread and copy this FAQ in any way you
    like, and you may also upload it anywhere on Internet
    without my permission. But you are not allowed to
    make any changes to the FAQ, and you may not
    sell it for own profit.
    This FAQ covers exactly 900 questions for the UK
    Dreamcast version of 'Who wants to be a millionaire'.
    I don't know if there are other versions of this game
    available for the Dreamcast, that are designed for
    other specific countries. But this FAQ is, in any
    case, the UK version. It could also be possible that
    the questions are the same for the Playstation and PC
    version of the game. I don't know, since I haven't
    played those versions. In case you wonder what's new
    since the previous version of this FAQ, these are the
    * 98 questions and answers were added.
    * Some info about the game was added.
    * The layout was improved.
    * One error question was added.
    * One error question was removed.
      (Tom Walker, thanks a million!)
    The easiset way to use this FAQ, is to open it in
    Wordpad, then use the search option, and type a
    short phrase of the question you want to have
    answered. For example, if you get this question:
    Which Formula One Grand Prix takes place at the
    Interlagos cicuit?
    Then I sugggest that you make a search on the word
    'Interlagos', since that word is something
    special for this question. As you understand, if
    you make a search on the word 'which', you will
    get too many hits, since a lot of questions
    begin like that.
    This game contains, according the instructions,
    more than 1000 questions, so that means that
    this FAQ isn't complete. But on the other hand,
    I'm very sure this also includes the 'Fastest
    Finger' mode, so the standard one player mode
    shouldn't have more than 1000 questions
    (I also made a statistic calculation, and if
    my calculation is correct, there are about
    1000 questions (it could be that *exactly*)).
    In any case, I dare to say that with these
    answers, your own knowledge for remaining
    questions, and with three life-lines, your
    chances are *very good* to complete the
    game itself. This FAQ does not cover the
    questions of the 'Fastest Finger' mode.
    Since the game is almost completely covered, it
    is pretty difficult for me to find questions
    that I never have seen before. I will probably
    make another update later in spring 2002, which
    will be the final update. But please don't get
    mad at me if the next final update will be
    delayed. I am a university student, so as you
    understand, I am a busy person. This FAQ is
    just something I have written for fun on my
    spare-time. :)
    And finally, my apologies about grammar and
    spelling mistakes. English is not my native
    language (As you could guess from the text
    above, I am from Sweden).
    Feedback, positive or negative, would be very
    appreciated... :)
    2. "Error" Questions
    So far, I have noticed five "error" questions in
    the game. The first error is in this question:
    Which was the last state to join the USA,
    before Alaska and Hawaii joined in 1959?
    According to the game, the answer is 'Arizona',
    so you need to select that answer in order to
    procede to the next question. That is also the
    real answer, but this question is not even close
    to the word fair. New Mexico is another
    alternative, and *BOTH* states joined the USA in
    1912. The difference is only that New Mexico
    joined on January 6th, while Arizona joined on
    February 14th (The other alternatives are
    Pennsylvania, which I believe joined on
    December 12, 1787, and Delaware sometime in 1793).
    This may be a $250.000-500.000 question, but
    even so...! Is the 1 million question about what
    Chris Tarrant had for dinner yesterday?
    The second error is in this question:
    What was the name of George II's wife?
    According to the game, the answer is 'Charlotte',
    so you need to select that answer in order to
    procede to the next question. But the 'real'
    answer is in fact 'Caroline'. George II got
    married to Caroline of Ansbach, so I don't
    understand why the game says that the answer
    is 'Charlotte'.
    The third error is in this question:
    Which is the third longest river in the world?
    According to the game, the answer is
    'YangTze-Kiang', so you need to select that
    answer in order to procede to the next question.
    But if you add the source flood to
    Mississippi, the answer would be 'Mississippi'.
    This question is not very clear.
    The fourth error is in this question:
    Which cartoon character is associated with the
    word 'Cowabunga'?
    According to the game, the answer is 'Bart Simpson',
    so you need to select that answer in order
    to procede to the next question. But the real
    answer is in fact 'Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles',
    but this alternative does not exist. Bart Simpson
    adopted this phrase, and uses it from time
    to time, so that's the best answer of the
    alternatives, though the answer 'Turtles' would
    had been a much better alternative.
    The fifth error is in this question:
    Copper and zinc are the main components of which
    According to the game, the answer is 'Brass', so you
    need to select that answer in order to procede to
    the next question. The main components of brass are
    indeed copper and zinc, but still this question is
    not very clear. 'Bronze' is another alternative,
    which also contains copper and zinc (It contains
    95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc), but according to
    the game, that's not the right answer.
    3. Lifeline Strategies
    You have three line lifelines per game,
    'Phone-A-friend', 'Ask the Audience' and '50:50'.
    You probably know already how these lifelines are
    working, so I guess I don't have to explain them
    in this FAQ (If you need to have them explained,
    listen to the instructions in the game).
    First, if you plan to use the 'Phone-A-friend'
    lifeline, keep in mind that you get the same
    answer for each question everytime. If you would
    use your '50-50' lifeline before using the
    'Phone-A-Friend' lifeline, the odds will not
    increase that your friend will give you the
    right answer. There is, so to say, only one
    message for each question. Your friends are
    giving you the right answer in about 75% of
    all cases. My favourite life-line is
    undoubtedly "Lisa". I can't remember that she
    ever gave me a wrong answer, and some of her
    replies are very funny. :)
    Second, if you plan to use the 'Ask the Audience'
    lifeline, it is the same thing about this
    lifeline, the results will be the same everytime.
    Do NOT use the lifeline '50:50' after that you
    used the 'Ask the Audience' lifeline. The two
    alternatives that are most unlikely, according
    to the audience, will vanish everytime (the
    programmers certainly aren't making it easy for
    the players). So using the '50:50' lifeline
    after using 'Ask the Audience' is just a waste.
    On the other hand, if you use '50:50' before
    using 'Ask the Audience', the results may
    be different.
    Third, if you plan to use '50:50', the two most
    unlikely answers will vanish everytime. If the
    answer alternatives are four names, and two of
    them are sounding different, and two sound
    pretty equal, then the computer takes away the
    two alternatives that are sounding more
    different. The computer works like that
    everytime (at least everytime I tried it), so
    using the '50:50' lifeline on such questions is
    a vaste as well. Try the other lifelines instead
    on such questions.
