  1. Exact: the Admin/Creator has 50 possible questions to input. If a player types in their response to a clue and it is an exact match to those 50 possible questions then it is considered the correct answer. An Admin/Creator can account for misspellings and the question choices are not case sensitive.
  2. Contains: the Admin/Creator can include a series of letters for the correct question.
  3. Starts With: the Admin/Creator can include the first few letters for the correct question.
  4. Ends With: the Admin/Creator can include the last few letters for the correct question.
