  1. He Said, She Said

    He Said, She Said

    He Said, She Said was the original name of the original format of what would become the popular 70's game show, Tattletales. Joe Garagiola hosted this iteration. The primary difference between formats was the number of couples and who they played for; He Said, She Said, had 4 couples, whereas Tattletales had 3, and where the He Said, She Said couples were each only playing for 'one lucky couple in the studio audience,' Tattletales - with the red, green and 'banana' sections of the studio audience - had a couple for them - in their entirety.

  3. Winning Lines

    Winning Lines

    Game show where in the first round 49 contestants (numbered 1 to 49) are whittled down to six in the first round, where Dick Clark asks them mathematical word problems, such as, "What is the number of Brady kids added to the number of Backstreet Boys?". In the second round, the six survivors face off in a sudden death round where the answers are the numbers of the finalists (e.g., if contestant #14 is still playing, a question may have 14 as an answer). The round works like this: Dick Clark asks a question. Once one of the players thinks they know the answer, they must lock-in with an answer. If they are right and it's someone else's number, the player with that number is out. If they are right and it's their number, then that contestant stays in the game. But if they're wrong, they're out. The winner goes on to play the Wonderwall, where he/she can win one million dollars by answering 20 questions in three minutes. If the Wonderwall player misses three questions, or doesn't bail out when time runs out, he/she loses all of the Wonderwall earnings. In addition, a home viewer can win $50,000 in a phone contest. The numbers in that contest were made up from the end digits of the 6 finalists (e.g. contestant #14 would add a "4") and the end digit of the Wonderwall contestant's last correct answer.

    This show, created by James Yukich, Dick Clark and V.I. King, scores 6.1 on IMDb.

If a contestant chose a blank, his or her turn was over and control was passed to his or her opponent. If he or she drew a dollar amount, a question would be asked of the celebrities to the top and side of the square with one answering truthfully (True) and the other giving a fake answer (False). If the contestant picked the correct answer, he or she was allowed to continue. If the contestant picked the wrong answer, he or she was unable to continue and gets the account to him or her. If the player chose a money bag, however, he or she was given the choice of refusing the money bag and continuing to choose squares or keeping the bag but giving up control to his or her opponent. The game ended when one contestant had claimed three of the same denomination squares {ergo: $300-$100x3, $600-$200x3, $900-$300x3 & $1500-$500x3}. If the contestant was able to control 3 money bag squares, he or she would be given to win the special "Break the Bank" Bankroll for collecting 3 cash bags with a dollar sign($) on it that in which started at $5000 and grew larger with each day for 5-Day Week {$500 added early and $250 added late in the run} until it was won.
