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.
Another favorite game show of mine was Pyramid! It is a television game show which has aired several versions. The original series, The $10,000 Pyramid, debuted March 26, 1973. Dick Clark is the host most commonly associated with the show, having hosted most incarnations of it from 1973–1988. The 10,000 Pyramid show hosted by Dick Clark is the one I remember most...it first came on TV while I was in high school.
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.
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.
What’s My Line? was a guessing game in which four panelists attempted to determine the line (occupation), or in the case of a famous "mystery guest" the identity, of the contestant. Panelists were required to probe by asking only questions which could be answered "yes" or "no". "Will the real...stand up."
