My Game Show Collection
Brought to you by the letters T and D
My Square One TV Collection

I happen to have a large game show collection, and I suppose that they are one of life's guilty pleasure's. To some they are fun little games, while to others they are the "rectum" (to use a less vulgar term) of show business. Well, I just like them. And there are others who happen to share my enjoyment, so if they wish to trade with me I should let them know what I have. I have included a list of my shows, which I will frequently update. The list has been alphabetically ordered, for your convenience, with spinoffs and revivals grouped together with their original shows. I will use a program's original title in the order, with all of its other titles directed to it. Also, I will point out certain unique elements if a show has them, however I will not try to ruin any surprises for those who have not already seen the show. And if a show is of bad video or audio quality, or had parts missing, I will not hesitate to point that out. Okay, Skeezix?

"Sure thing, Tony. And here's what our fellow traders could collect from Tony DuMont..."

 GAME SHOW COLLECTION-Over 1000 episodes, plus miscellaneous bits and pieces, and counting!

1 VS. 100 (5 eps)

A high-stakes quiz reminiscent of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, this has potential. The easy questions get slow, and build monotony rather than tension, but the game gets exciting as more players get eliminated.

*The first five episodes, from October 13, 2006 to November 10, 2006

THE $1,000,000 CHANCE OF A LIFETIME (5 eps)

High stakes Hangman variant...sorry but it isn't "Wheel of Fortune." Most episodes did only three rounds, and with the scoring format, whoever gets the third puzzle will probably clinch the game. This game is more notable for its prize payout and set, fireworks and all. 

*First $1,000,000 win of the series, Connie/Steve vs. David/Nina

*Sarah/Vince VS. Kim/George, million dollar win!

*(first few minutes missing) Judee/Ken vs. Andrea/Michael, million dollar win!

*Jay/Judy vs. Penny/Dave, million dollar win!

*Dan/Laureen vs. David/Peggy, million dollar win!

3RD DEGREE (1 ep)

This was a decent panel show, the second effort by Burt and Bert productions, By the way, the same style of nametags were used on The Joker’s Wild 1990.

*1989 premiere, guests Loni Anderson, Betty White, Burt Reynolds, and Charles Nelson Reilly

5…4…3…2…RUN! (1 ep)

Another messy kids’ game show from the late 1980s, this one comes from Canada.

*General 1988 episode, a bit jumpy quality

10 SECONDS (2 eps)

*Randall vs. Freddie, episode with original commercials

*John vs. Glenn, $8,500 jackpot won!

THE $10,000/$20,000/$25,000/$50,000/$100,000 PYRAMID (5 eps)

(Original $25,000 Pyramid, host Bill Cullen, 1 ep)

*Bob vs. Sharon, guests Debralee Scott and Peter Lawford

(The $100,000 Pyramid, Dick Clark, 1 ep)

*1986 episode, Heidi Bohay and Michael Spound, Esther vs. Robin, a controversial ruling in the first round

(Pyramid, host Donny Osmond, 2 eps)

*Last day of Dick Clark Challenge, guests are Dick Clark and Betty White

*Leslie vs. Chip, guests are Stephanie D’Abruzzo (and Kate Monster) and Bruce Vilanch

(U. K. version, The Pyramid Game, 1 ep)

*Costas vs. Jackie, Dee Hepburn and Stefan Dennis, the Winner’s Circle seems too similar to the frontgame!

THE $64,000 CHALLENGE (2 eps)

*Sonny Fox hosts, begins with Gloria and Andy competing in spelling, Vincent Price accepts a challenge.

*Ralph Story hosts, begins with an $8,000 art question


*from February 10, 2007, Lake Catholic vs. Vermillion vs. Norwalk


*Theresa vs. Dave, guests are Jo Anne Worley and Nita Blackwood


I was curious about this show until I saw it and realized that it doesn't live up to the glitz.

*Premiere, guests Leslie Luggams, John Byner, Abby Dalton, and Robert Mandan; Connie vs. Steve (not so great quality)


(American Gladiators, 3 eps)

*1990 Grand Final

*1991 Grand Final, with an intensely close finish!

*1992 Grand Final

(Gladiators 2000)

*Adam/Kristin vs. Jamaal/Amy (missing end credits)


An interesting program set at a zoo where the winner would become Zookeeper for a day. A very interesting and educational show, with many varied rounds.

*from 1998, Joni vs. Jessica, Chris vs. Natalie

BALONEY (1 ep)

*General 1988 episode


The late Peter Tomarken called this show "a piece of (fecal matter)" and it's hard to blame him, since this show is no more than a bland version of "The Price is Right" with a tacky set. Plus, who needs the home shopping segments, on this show or elsewhere?

*Mark vs. Debbie, Alan vs. Yvonne, Lisa vs. Donna


This was the original stunt game show. The fifties version was definitely the best, having a solid gameplay, plus it was very laid back. But unfortunately it fell prey to big money risks, which it didn't have to do. Every single revival of the show seemed to pale in comparison. As for its most recent incarnation on PAX, it was unncessarily complicated and came off like a bad ripoff of Nickelodeon's "Double Dare", since the stunts that decided the game were toss-ups and did not involve beating the clock. Plus, the revival seemed to take itself more seriously than the original show.

(Original version, 2 eps)

*General episode with John Reed King filling in for Bud.

*General episode with Bob Kennedy as Bud's substitute

(1969 version)

*Episode where Louis Nye is a guest

(1979-1980 version)

*Christmas episode


Happy Family Plan, the original show that inspired it.

(The Big Moment)

*Half-hour ep, challenges are pulling a tablecloth and walking a tightrope, audience stunt is crying on cue

(Original Japanese version, 1 ep)

*Challenges are juggling a soccer ball 20 times, performing a top trick, learning Morse Code, and riding a unicycle


*The only existing episode, Andy vs. Diane vs. Mike, has Jim’s trip down the stairs and a $5,000 win!

BLACKOUT (4 eps)

Yet another clever game from Jay Wolpert. It had the dubious honor of replacing and being replaced by the same show, "The $25,000 Pyramid." The set was snazzy, the graphics were fun to look at (in a cheesy sort of way), and the concept of censoring your opponent's description was original. It's too bad this show didn't last too long, like Jay's other shows.

*Third episode, guests Charlie Siebert and Markie Post, Lisa vs. Jan

*Fourth episode, Denise vs. Jan

*Laurie vs. Robert, with original ads, guests Annie Bloom and Stephen Furst.

*Last episode, with Crystal Bernard and Pat Harrington, Ande vs. Ken


*Third episode, from January 8, 1975 (taped December 22, 1974), Maggie Brown is the first checkwriter!


This was a cute game, one that I definitely see as worthy of revival. The use of cards on a wheel to determine turns was unusual. However this could just as well be played with individual players. I think this show could use a bonus round, such as having to solve a certain number of puzzles before time runs out.

*Premiere episode, Bill vs. Kathy, with guests Bill Shatner and Anne Meara (the video appears as if it were filmed)


A true strategy game, this is mostly remembered for its two-against one format (the handicap being that the team of two had a longer path). The 1987 revival tends to be forgettable because the two-against-one aspect was removed and the main game payoffs were lowered.

*Gene Visich returns for her 10th game

*Episode where Pat and Liz McCarthy win $120,000

*Last episode of 1987 revival, Patti vs. Pete


An interesting charades game, its only real flaw is its scoring system ($100 for the first two puzzles and $250 for each puzzle afterward). If there is a revival, I suggest $250 for each of the first two puzzles and $500 for each additional puzzle.

*Premiere, $10,000 win!

*Karen Kelly and Anson Williams, Markita vs. Ken, with $10,000 win!


NBC's Saturday morning show for young adults, this show just seemed like a hodgepodge of stunts and question and answer rounds without any unique connection. Also, the prizes were a bit low-end.

*All star episode, the casts of "Running the Halls" and "Saved by the Bell: The New Class" compete

*Golden Gladiators vs. Dominators, Guests are Tatyana Ali and Lark Voorhies

BREAK THE BANK (1950s version, 2 eps)

A standard jackpot quizzer, its main difference being that the player was allowed two wrong answer and could still keep their money if they lost. It wasn’t as intense as the real big money shows. I haven’t seen any episodes of the show when it became “Break the $250,000 Bank,” so that may have been more exciting.

*Episode with a Dutch family playing for $1,300

*Begins with three drama students playing for $3,400

BREAK THE BANK (1976 version, 2 eps)

*Premiere episode, guests Abe Vigoda, Alice Ghostley, Jo Ann Pflug, Dick Gautier, Jan Murray, Lynda Carter, Liz Torres, Robert Hegyes, and Marjoe Gortner, $5,000 bank broken!

*Jack Barry episode with $10,000 bank broken!

BREAK THE BANK (1985, 12 eps)

At the risk of being burned at the stake I must confess that I think this show had potential and deserves a revival. It's flaw wasn't in its gameplay but rather its execution, way to go Richard S. Kline. His efforts to make the show more serious (considering how it involved silly stunts, which could have served as a highlight, beating "Shop 'Til You Drop" by years) clashed with Gene Rayburn, whom he wrongfully blamed for the show's failure (to be fair, Gene seemed out of place in the Prize Vault and ended up turning into Skip Lackey, which is bad if you're playing against the clock, although this may be the fault of the show) and replaced with an unknown, the somewhat interchangeable Joe Farago. As if that weren't enough, Kline overhauled the format, doing away with the stunts in favor of a cash scoring system and a "master puzzle," which not only dulled the game but rendered many of the set's features, such as the "number jumbler" and the lock where the hostess would enter the winning team's time, were rendered vestigial. The show would have worked better if it had been presented the way Rayburn had wanted. Its real tragedy is not how bad the show turned out to be, but how great it could have been.

(Host Gene Rayburn, 7 eps)

*Michael/Lori vs. Tim/Becky, from September 16th, 1985; featuring Louise Duart, Joe Farago, and Bubba Smith

*Tim/Becky vs. Ron/Gale, from September 17th, 1985; featuring a guitarist, a Humphrey Bogart lookalike, and a tap dancer

*Ron/Gale vs. Ward/Dawn, from September 18th, 1985; featuring Louise Duart, Joe Farago, and Bubba Smith

*Ron/Gale vs. Merv/Cynthia, featuring a Michael Jackson lookalike, a mime, and Charles Nelson Reilly, from September 19th, 1985. This episode is of blurrier video quality than the previous three but it does have a promo for "Catch Phrase", which premiered the same day.

*John/Sharon vs. Linda/Peter, featuring Jm J. Bullock, and there are only eight events instead of the usual nine.

*Vickie/Richard vs. Teri/Grady, including a Madonna lookalike and Willie Tyler and Lester

*Tina/Jeff vs. Cheryl/Frank, last episode of Rayburn's term as host, from December 20, 1985. Guests are a pianist, a Lady Diana lookalike, and Rip Taylor (who really doesn't have much to do).

(Host Joe Farago, 5 eps)

*From December 27, 1985, Lynn/Timothy vs. Lisa/Glenn, the prize vault includes a Rocky Balboa lookalike and Vic Dunlop (contains VCR counter in corner)

*Kathie/Chris vs. Chris/Chuck, perhaps the first episode to feature the second game format, playing for cash instead of seconds.

*(missing first minute or so) Erich/Dani vs. Johnathan/Andrea

*Gene/Sarah vs. Jerry/Michele (the quality leaves a lot to be desired, another copy has better quality but also a VCR counter in the upper right hand corner), episode with $53,323 win!

*Lonnie/René vs. Don/Dawn


(Australian version, 1 ep)

*World Cup All-Stars vs. Boogie Babes, $50,000 attempted


In this unsold pilot from the 1980s, the object was to be the first team to answer questions for a full 60 seconds. Not a bad idea, but because each question varies in length, it might have been more fair to have both teams race to answer a certain number of questions.

*Unsold pilot episode, some VCR graphics and missing credits

BULLSEYE (4 eps)

Yet another Barry-Enright late 1970s-early 1980s creation, with a gameplay similar to The Joker's Wild in the sense that it involved random categories and dollar amounts. The music and set were impressive (the pilot used Santa Esmeralda's "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood") but unfortunately this show fell victim to the celebrity curse that also claimed "Hot Potato" and "Whew!".

*Pilot episode, with a potential million-dollar jackpot (the picture quality is rather jumpy)

*Last episode of civilian run, begins with Judy at Bonus Island

*Celebrity episode, begins with Ernest Borgnine and Suzy Chafee

*Celebrity episode, F. Lee Bailey vs. Patrick Wayne, Jim gives Patrick the idea that he would make a great game show host (some of us might not agree!)


This was a very challenging game with a fun premise. Its only real problem, however, was the way they kept changing the bonus round--the first was pretty much standard B & E fare (find enough money before hitting the bad guy); the second was; and the third seemed removed from the game. Also, when doing so they kept shrinking the amount of potential winnings that a team could win, which weren't very much in the first place (this show was produced in Canada, where lower payouts are more common).

*Scott/Kate vs. Gary/Warren

*Scott/Kate vs. Trisha/Linda, Scott and Kate retire undefeated with $10,600 (missing opening)

*Bill/Janine vs. Rick/Jack

*Edi/Margi vs. Rick/Jack

*Bob/Shirlee vs. Belinda/Tim

*Mo/Jeff vs. Larry/Craig, Mo and Jeff retire undefeated with $16,000!

*Rob /Phyllise at bonus round

*Rick/Gary at bonus round, Rick and Gary retire undefeated with $7,900

*Tom/Mary vs. Guy/Joe

*Tracie/Dave at bonus round

*1988 episode, Sean/Sarah vs. Angelo/Alberto


The most recent national daytime network game show to be produced in the United States, Caesar's Challenge was more about being taped at Caesar's Palace than its word game. Ahmad Rashad was a good host, and Dan did well as the gladiator/assistant. The game itself was fun, but didn't need the shopping element (which was later changed to awarding the winner a prize package equal to the cash they had won). I preferred the first bonus game, where the letters were randomly chosen until "Caesar says stop" and the longer a contestant had been on the show the more of an advantage the player received.

*Pilot episode, where the contestants wager on which one will solve each word, Laurel vs. Scott vs. Leanna

(First bonus round format, 4 eps)

*Tom Gauer's fourth appearance and bonus round win, the video is really blurry

*Babette vs. Mike vs. Heather

*Babette vs. Gordon vs. Ashley, Dan's sword doesn't work!

*David vs. Betsy vs. J. D.

(Second bonus round format, 1 ep)

*Jan vs. Ann vs. Darrell

CARD SHARKS (6 eps, 2 partial eps)

This was another Goodson-Todman winner, with a lot of excitement, especially if high stakes were involved. While the eighties revival upped the grand prize to $32,000 and added some interesting features, such as general knowledge questions and audience member-based questions, it also included an unnecessary bonus round involving jokers that had nothing to do with the main game. The 2001 revival was just forgettable, using "person on the street questions" that didn't fit in with the higher/lower aspect.

(Original run, 1978-1981)

*Both pilots, the first with Jack Campion and the second with a $28,800 win!

*Partial (first 12 minutes) episode

*Episode with Norma Brown's $28,800 Money Cards win!

*Clip of Alex Trebek playing the Money Cards for charity

*Finale, from original broadcast

(Second run, 1986-1989)

*General episode, from June 24, 1986

(Third run, 2001, 1 ep)

*Episode from America’s Heroes week


The first game show to use computer animation (I admit it does look a bit cheesy by today's standards, even though it may have been ahead of its time), its gameplay based on identifying picture puzzles was also mentally challenging and fun to play along. However the scoring was a bit awkward, since whoever solved the last puzzle would usually win, or if there were two puzzles played, whoever solved the second puzzle would win. But it was a good show, and inspired a long-running UK revival and I hear a pilot is being produced in the US for a revival. Let's hope it succeeds. 

(U. S. version, hosted by Art James, 10 eps)

*Premiere, from September 16, 1985, Michael vs. Ashley

*Second episode, from September 17, 1985, Michael vs. Bri

*Third episode, from September 18, 1985, Bril vs. Bill

*Sixth episode,from September 19, 1985, Bri retires undefeated

(1980 version, 5 eps)

*Pilot, with Joyce Bullifant and Nipsey Russell, married couples compete for a $100,000 jackpot!

*Premiere, Candace vs. Pat, guests Joyce Bullifant, Patty Duke, Fred Grandy, and Nipsey Russell

*Episode with the second bonus round format, Mary Jo vs. Trudy, guests Elaine Joyce, Vicki Lawrence, Richard Paul, and Nipsey Russell who gives his “progress and congress” poem.

*Ken vs. Nancy, guests Joanna Gleason, Debralee Scott, Robert Mandan, and Robert Walden, two $10,000 wins!

*Finale, from the June 20, 1980 broadcast, Sarah vs. Arnie, guests Betty White, Joyce Bullifant, Ron Silver, and Jay Johnson, the celebrities play the bonus game for charity!

(1986 version, Blake Emmons hosts, 3 eps)

*Canadian premiere, Jo Anne/Alan vs. Karen/Lorraine

*Second episode, Ada/Bob vs. Karen/Lorraine (jumpy video)

*Ken/Beatriz vs. Andre Nicole

(1986 version, host Geoff Edwards, 3 ep)

*Geoff’s first episode, Max/Lori vs. Nona/Chuck, has a promo for “Love Me, Love Me Not” (the quality isn’t too impressive)

*John/Antoinette vs. Dianne/Patricia

*Solo player formate, Marie vs. Alexis

(The $40,000 Chain Reaction, 1 ep)

*Finale of $40,000 Tournament, Linda vs. Brett

THE CHAIR (2 eps)

(U. S. version, host John McEnroe, 1 ep)

*Episode where a contestant takes home the full $250,000

(United Arab Emirates version, 1 ep)

*Episode from January 26, 2004


Well-deserved comparisons to "The Running Man" aside, this show was a disaster.

*Preview episode

*First episode, September 3, 1990

*September 24, 1991 episode, with a $60,000 Ultimate Challenge win!

*First episode, from January 7, 1956

*Third episode, from January 21, 1956

*Fourth episode, from January 28, 1956

*Fifth episode, from February 4, 1956

*Sixth episode, from February 11, 195

CITY SMARTS (10 eps)

Local WNYE-25 quiz where high schoolers test their knowledge of New York City. An interesting quizbowl, with a cute, if chintzy, set (this is local public television on a small channel) and the round formats are interesting. Unfortunately, the final never came about, due to a lack of funding.

*First Round, Dewitt Clinton vs. Staten Island Tech 

*First Round, Stuyvesant vs. Hostos Lincoln

*First Round, High School for Environmental Studies vs. Fort Hamilton

*Last First Round match, A. Philip Randolph vs. Brooklyn Tech

*Quarter-final match, High School for Environmental Studies vs. Townsend Harris

*Semi-final match, Stuyvesant vs. Susan Wagner

*Semi-final match, High School for Environmental Studies vs. Staten Island Tech, sadly this was the last one, since there was no championship due to lack of funding, as I found out. 

CLASH (1 ep)

*Librarians (Steven, Christine, and Joanne) vs. Noisy People (Michael, Paul, and Tanya)


A durable and enjoyable format, memory and rebus puzzles. As for the most recent version, choosing a match format (first one loos eliminates you, then the loser of a two-out-of-three match goes out, then you stay on the show until two losses) was a bit bumpy, and I would have liked to have seen original shows instead of just repeats for three years.

(Concentration, 1958-1973, Hugh Downs, 1 ep)

*Fifth annual Challenge of Champions episode from the original fifties run, Dorothy vs. Clara

(1973-1978 version, Jack Narz hosts, 1 ep)

*from 1978, Linda vs. Randy, the board has some problems (studio master)

*Doug vs. LaVerne

*Doug vs. Karen

*Joy vs. Mark

*Ben vs. Susan, Ben throws the bonus round!

*Amy vs. Bob, unmentioned finale


The pacing is a bit slow, and the show itself seems to be a plug for Disney movies, but other than that it’s an interesting kids’ show. Not as good as Double Dare, may I remind you.

*from 1983, Telly/MacKenzie/Aubrey vs. Chuck/Teri/Marc (the quality is a bit screwy)


*The Jestons vs. Get Smart, Dick Sargent makes an appearance


(U. K. version, 5 eps)

*episode from April 14, 1987, Keith vs. Stephen

*June 29, 1992, 23rd series premiere, Bernadetta vs. Wayne (15 years old!)

(UK Version, 1 ep)

*Carol Vordeman and Tony vs. Richard Whitely and Constance


*15-minute Pilot that would serve as basis for Crosswits, Paul Lynde and Polly vs. Tippi Hendren and Frank (cuts off at end)


*First four episodes

*Children’s Christmas special from 1991 (Michael Underwood, who would go on to Jungle Run, is a contestant)

DEAL OR NO DEAL (15 eps)

(U. S. version, 11 eps)

Pretty exciting, especially since, as Howie Mandel boasts in the opening, the show involves no skill. However, with NBC playing it three nights a week, I'm pretty sure this will just fizzle out, as did all of the other prime-time quizzes of the early millenium.

*The entire five-episode preview from NBC, with original ads, aired December 19-23, 2005

What I liked best about this show was the "bomb" question. Like Whew's Longshot, it was a twist that kept the game from becoming too anti-climactic. Aside from that, plus the celebrity teammates giving questions, this was a pretty typical Q & A show.

IDENTITY (10 eps)

Magician? Yes. Skeptic? Check. Quizmaster? Not exactly Penn Jillette's identity. This is nonetheless an intriguing concept, if marred by slow pacing. It sems like the show itself was added simply to compete with Deal or No Deal, and by failing to go too deep into the identity of the strangers it misses out on what could otherwise make for a better show.

*May 19, 2007 episode, Gwendolyn Brooks vs. Morgan Park


A challenging show, requiring mental and physical ability. However, I would like to see the original British version, because it seems to be the most challenging. The 1980 version has some tricky tests, but still comes short of being a tough challenge, since there's no Intelligence test and the general knowledge test dominates the show. The 1990 version seems slow and weak, since Willie Aames is too slow during the general knowledge round and the obstacle course only shows us the winner. Nonetheless, a revival is in order.

(1980 version, 2 eps)

*Premiere, Bruce vs. Mary-Anne vs. Jim vs. Janice

(Canadian version, The Next Line, 1 ep)

*Maxine vs. Russ vs. Sharon vs. Ian


The show that introduced Ross Shafer to the public, this was considerably slow (as I've noticed with the USA version of Chain Reaction) and it's confusing as to how players stay on as champions. You would have to watch several episodes of this to know for sure, and that takes a great deal of patience.

*Both pilots "M'ama Non M'ama," hosted by Alex Trebek

*1985 Ross Shafer pilot, with the men chasing the women, the set and music made it to the air but the format is considerably different.

As if “Break the Bank 1985” was not enough, this show cements Richard S. Kline's failure as a producer. The gameplay is severely flawed, and Mario Lopez is a mediocre host at best.

This was a cute lottery game show, and the set and music were very enjoyable. The game itself was okay, pretty much just luck with the only real twist coming from the option to accept a prize or choose another box. The endgame was similar to the Showcase Showdown from The Price is Right but not quite as exciting.

THINK FAST (97 episodes)

This is Nickelodeon's first actual stunt-based game show (Double Dare was essentially a Q & A show where the stunts decided control or served as alternatives to the questions) and it was very good. In fact, it could use a revival, one with six events per show. However, the firs season gameplay was sloppy (not just because of messy stunts, but because a high percentage of events were decided by default) and while gameplay was tightened up by the second season, the events did not vary as much. It also hasn't had the best hosts, since Michael Carrington was okay, even though he did make several noticable flubs and try too hard to be funny, and Lackey seemed clueless and inept. But still the theme music by Edd Kalehoff was energetic, and the locker room was an exciting endgame.

WINNING LINES (1 episode)

Possibly added to cash in on the big-money craze of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?, this was different in the sense that the players would have to go through not some easy multiple-choice questions but instead two major elimination stages first (from 49 players to six to one) and the sole survivor would face one of the most intense endgames ever seen, The Wonderwall. This could have succeeded if the production company had not gone bankrupt and left players without their winnings.

*First episode, with a $500,000 win! (missing end credits)


Another Bob Stewart word game, this one where players have to come up with words including a growing series of letters. This had potential but not too much, since to get the purported $100,000 jackpot both players had to pick the top dollar amount and use all nine letters.
