Round 1: Poison Word
- Teams are randomly assigned 15 "poison words" before the game begins.
- Three additional bonus words are provided to both teams, not disclosed in advance.
- These bonus words are unknown to both teams and serve as tiebreakers in case of a draw.
- In each round, teams engage in a rapid-fire question-and-answer format.
- The primary goal is to avoid saying any of the assigned "poison words" during the round.
- If a team inadvertently says a poison word, they are immediately eliminated from the round.
- If a tie occurs, the team that correctly answers more bonus words wins.
- Each team has 10 seconds to provide an answer and an additional 10 seconds to ask questions.
- Each team receives one out-of-time warning.
- On the second warning, the team is disqualified from the round.
