  1. Wipeout

    Wipeout

    This short-running game show used a combination of knowledge and luck in challenging its contestants. For each game, the players would be presented a board with sixteen different 'answers' to a category-style question. Eleven of the answers would be real, while five of them would be incorrect "wipeout" answers. Contestants received increasing amounts of money for each correct answer, but risked losing everything if they wiped out before passing control to the next player. After each game, the two higest scoring players would go on to compete in a head-to-head challenge round, where the difficulty and the prize money increased.

    This show, created by Jerome Shaw, Peter Tomarken and Jim Hackett, scores 5.8 on IMDb.

    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.

  8. Break the Bank

    Break the Bank

    Very different in format from the 1945-1957 version hosted by Bert Parks, this show was primarily based on luck and nerves with the ability to separate truth from bluff helping out. Two contestants (One's a Returning Champion) were presented with a 4x5=20 grid with 9 celebrity guests seated along the top and side. Behind each square in the grid was either a set amount of money ($100 both abc & syndicated, $200 on abc, $300 both abc & syndicated & $500 on syndicated), a money bag, a wild account or a blank. 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. The Bonus Round called "Raise Up The Stakes for $2500" The Champion will able to raise $1000 in order to win $2500 cash prize by having one has a cash amount ($100 to $500) and one has "BUST!"

  9. 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.
