Press Your Luck - In 1984, ice cream truck driver Michael Larson discovered with the help of his VCR’s pause button that the movements of the board weren't random but could be memorized. After nervously landing on a Whammy on his 1st attempt he spun 45x's without hitting another. He broke the bank, clearing $ 110,000 a record that still stands. It was determined there was no rule against memorizing but he was not invited back & the board was reprogrammed.

Hollywood Squares is an American panel game show in which two contestants play tic-tac-toe to win cash and prizes. The "board" for the game is a 3 × 3 vertical stack of open-faced cubes, each occupied by a celebrity (or "star") seated at a desk and facing the contestants. The stars are asked questions and the contestants judge the veracity of their answers in order to win the game.

The Price is Right/Bob Barker loved this game show! I remember whenever I was home school whether I was sick or on vacation I would watch this show I remember watching this show with my great grandma Nana.
