Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Listeners would submit questions with five parts to the show. Each part was called a "trick". If a contestant won the trick, he/she won a prize; otherwise, the listener won the prize. If either side won all five tricks, it was a "grand slam" (hence the name of the show) and that participant won a $100 savings bond in addition to the other prizes.
