When playing the game show version, are there still five teams, or just two teams? how many chips does each team get at the beginning of the game? Do you still use the progressive odds to place the answers on?

There are different variants out there, but generally speaking, multiple teams are allowed, and it's not uncommon to have even more than five (example:here's a pic of a game with nine teams), and each team has two betting tokens.

Re: progressive odds: I've seen it done both ways.

Here's a video of Tom Vasel running a W&W gameshow a couple of years ago.

Two teams would not work well. You want to have at least 5 teams.
