Battlestars Description:

Six celebrity guests were seated in a triangular lit wall a la "Hollywood Squares." Two contestants randomly selected a celebrity by pressing a button. The celebrity answered a question, and the contestant could agree or disagree with the answer. If the contestant was correct, one of the points of the triangle surrounding the celebrity was put out. If the lights at all three corners of a celebrity triangle were put out, the contestant "captured" that celebrity. The goal was to be the first person to capture three celebrities.
