    The Hollywood Squares is a classic 1966 game show that mixes trivia with the classic strategy game, tic-tac-toe. Two contestants go head-to-head to try to get three Xs or Os in a row on a giant tic-tac-toe board. But it's not as easy as it sounds. Each space on the giant board contains a celebrity, who answers a trivia question whenever a contestant tries to win their space. The celebrity may know the answer to the trivia question, or they may make something up. The contestant has to decide whether the celebrity is answering truthfully or not, and they only get to occupy that space on the board if they choose correctly. The Hollywood Squares offers a chance to see some of Tinsel Town's biggest stars at their least scripted. This inventive game show became known for the unpredictability of the stars, who used the show to exhibit their real selves, without any media exaggeration. The Hollywood Squares featured many celebrities, including Billy Crystal, Vincent Price, Aretha Franklin, Joan Rivers, Eva Gabor, Don Knotts, and many more.moreless

    Scrabble

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1993)
    A six-letter word; it's where you go to read all about your favorite TV shows, including Scrabble. The age-old crossword game that everybody loved to play, but never quite like this, came to television in 1984 for a moderately successful six-year run. Here, contestants used punny and double-entendre clues to fill in words on a gameboard resembling the famous Scrabble game. The format for Scrabble (the TV series) was tweaked several times, but one format lasted longer than others, described below: Crossword Round Two Crossword Rounds were played per show, with two contestants competing at a time. The first game had the returning champion played a challenger, while two new contestants played in the second game. In each Crossword Round, a letter "to build on" is placed in the center "starred" space to begin the game, and host Woolery reads a clue, with the number of letters (five to nine) in the word. Example: A nine-letter word - Drunks hate to see pink ones; bargain shoppers hate white ones. Answer: ELEPHANTS.) A pool of tiles, each representing all the letters in the puzzle plus three stoppers (letters NOT in the puzzle) are placed in the rack between the players. The player chosen to go first draws two tiles from the rack and places them in an electronic reader. The player chooses one and, if the letter was in the word, it was placed in the proper spot (following effects denoting its "search" for the correct position). The player could guess the word or place the other tile in the reader; if he/she still could not guess, then they were allowed to draw two more tiles and play continued. That is, unless he/she chose one of the stoppers, which then passed control to the opponent. If all three stoppers are revealed before the word is guessed, a Speedword format is used, where each of the blanks (save for the last one) are filled in at the rate of one every half-second. The Speedword was also played if time was running short. At least one of the tiles in each word were colored (blue or pink), which provided bonuses for providing a correct answer immediately after filling it in. Those bonuses were $500 for the blue space and $1,000 for a pink space. A player also won the bonuses if he/she buzzed in and guessed immediately after the colored space was filled. After each word is guessed (or sometimes not, if neither player could provide a guess after all but one of the letters were shown), a new word was played, building off a letter in the previous word. The first player to correctly guess three words won $500 and advanced to the Scrabble Sprint Round. Scrabble Sprint Round Here, the winner of the first Crossword Round met the returning champion (or second-round winner, if the champion was defeated). The challenger is timed to the tenth of a second for how long it takes him to guess four words (again, five to nine letters, with shorter ones offered first) correctly. There were no stoppers in these words, and a player could choose from two possible letters in the word. All except the last letter were filled in, and a player offered a guess by hitting the plunger in front of him/her. Penalties were assessed for incorrect guesses (10 seconds) or failing to guess (5 seconds). The champion must then beat the challenger's time, playing the same four words. For either contestant, alternate words were played if they failed to guess or were incorrect. The winner earned $1,000 and advances to the Bonus Sprint Round. Bonus Sprint Round The Bonus Sprint Round was played exactly like the Scrabble Sprint Round, except the player had a fixed 10-second limit to guess two words (one six letters, the other seven). Guessing both words correctly won a jackpot that began at $5,000 and increased by $1,000 for each day it went unclaimed. The champion returns to the next show to face a new challenger. Several other formats were utilized during the run, briefly described thusly: * In the Crossword Round, two new players played. Regular tiles for each word were worth $25, blue ones $50 and pink ones $100, with the money added to a "pot." The winner of three words wins the value of the pot and advanced to the Scrabble Sprint Round to face the returning champion. Each Scrabble Sprint Round win was worth $1,500, with five wins amending his/her winnings to $20,000. A 10th win ammended the winnings to $40,000 and retired the player undefeated. * Later, before the longest-lived format was used, the "pot" was scrapped, and players won $500 and $1,000 bonuses for placing letters on blue and pink tiles. A flat $500 was paid to the Crossword Round winner. Scrabble was known for its highly imaginative clues and its extensive use of sound effects (14, according to several sources). That may have helped draw in viewers, but not so much as the fast-paced gameplay. Scrabble fared fairly well against The Price is Right, but eventually, the show surrendered in the ratings. In 1993, Scrabble returned once again, not in encore reruns (as was the case for Classic Concentration) but in a new, cheaper format. The game rules were the same, but smaller cash awards (a $1,000 base jackpot for Scrabble Sprint Round winners, plus extra money added for guessing words on pink and blue squares) turned off many viewers. It didn't help that demographics had changed and many NBC affiliates chose not to air Scrabble, instead opting for syndicated fare such as The Jerry Springer Show. After Scrabble's successor, Caesar's Challenge was cancelled in January 1994 due to failed ratings, NBC was out of the daytime game show business entirely. Scrabble is a registered trademark now licensed to Hasbro, but the original trademark holder - Selchow-Righter - was acknowledged on each show.moreless

    Concentration

    Concentration

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1973)
    Game show producers Jack Barry and Dan Enright created this classic game show, based on the children's matching memory game. The first match aired on August 25-29, 1958, but it seemed doomed when Barry and Enright (because of their roles in the fast-unfolding Quiz Show Scandals) were forced to relinquish their ownership of the game. However, NBC-TV took over production and the rest is history. 2 contestants, including a returning champion, competed to solve a rebus hidden beneath a board of 30 numbers (1-30). The board itself concealed the names of prizes(good or joke),wild cards and other action cards (described below). Each player in turn, called out a pair of numbers. No match gave his/her opponent control of the board, but a match gave whatever prize was printed on the card or allowed him/her to perform an action. It also revealed to pieces of the rebus (identifying a person, phrase, place, thing, etc.); the player could try to solve the rebus, but even if he/she was wrong, he/she kept control. In addition to all those prizes, there were the following action cards: WILD - Self-explanatory; provided an automatic match. Early on, players uncovering 2 WILD cards won a $500 bonus and chose two additional number, the prizes went on that contestant's side and 4 pieces of the rebus were revealed. Late in the run, getting 2 WILD cards in the same turn won the player a new car – usually the Chevrolet Nova – which he/she kept, regardless of the game's outcome. Take One Gift - The contestant at that moment was allowed to take a prize his/her opponent might have in their possession and put it in his/her own rack. Usually, there were 2 sets of these per game. Forfeit One Gift - The player immediately had to give up one of the prizes he/she had in his possession to his/her opponent. Also 2 sets per game. Also included were 2 or 3 joke prizes (such as a banana peel or torn teddy bear). These actually served as insurance markers against opponents' Take cards and the Forfeit cards he/she might stumble upon. Only upon correctly solving the puzzle on the rebus does a player actually win what he/she claimed from the board (he/she also earned $100 if there were no prizes in his/her rack). The loser forfeits all his/her gifts. For the 1st 2 seasons of the show (1958-1960), there's no bonus game. The 1st end game was "The Envelope and its Mysterious Contents" (which hid cash amounts or a grand prize such as a car) in 1960. Later that time, "The Cash Wheel" which allowed a player to win up to $2000 cash by spinning a carnival wheel in 1962. Champions continued until either defeated or by winning 20 games (reportedly accomplished just once, in 1966 by Ruth Horowitz, though other 20-game champions have been documented in recent years). Another noted contestant is Ralph Branca, a Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher who won 17 games. Beginning in 1963 The top 4 winners each season returned to play a best 4 out of 7 World Series style "CONCENTRATION Challenge of Champions Tournament." The grand prize was $1000, a trip around the world plus "The Connie" (a trophy modeled after Rodin's The Thinker). On March 23, 1973, after 3796 episodes (featuring a reported 7,300 rebuses), the show ended its 15-Season run on NBC. The 1st puzzle was "It Happened One Night" & The last puzzle was "You've Been More Than Kind." It was replaced by Baffle. Concentration will stand for all time as the longest-running game show in NBC history. The longevity of the show was finally eclipsed in April 1987 by the 1972 version of The Price is Right. Concentration now ranks fourth on the long-run list of long-running daytime/syndicated game shows (behind TPiR and the syndicated runs of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!). Goodson-Todman Productions was awarded the rights to the show and produced a five-a-week syndicated revival of the show on September 10-14, 1973, which ran 5 years (to this day, this is the only Goodson-Todman series that was NOT their original creation). The game was the same as before, with two new contestants competing each day. The rules basically were the same, except the idea of joke prizes was scrapped as well as Forfeit One Gift. They were replaced by a new Free Look space, which upon a match allowed the contestant to briefly open up two as-of-yet available numbers, which he/she thought would help him solve the rebus. Also, Narz announced the whereabouts of four of the prizes (to give players a "head start") at the outset of each game; and, uncovering both WILD cards in a single turn earned the player a $250 bonus, which he/she kept regardless of the game's outcome. And, the player was spotted another $250 if he/she solved the rebus and didn't have any prizes. The winner played a new bonus round called Double Play, with a new car as the top prize for solving two rebuses within 10 seconds. During the 1977-1978 season, players determined their Double Play prize package by choosing two squares from a 10-space board and competing for the first prize package matched. The show returned in 1987 as Classic Concentration; see that title for more details. Both versions of Concentration offered an impressive array and variety of prizes. One retrospective of the original series reported the following prize tally: * 512 cars. * 397 boats. * 1,287 domestic and foreign trips and cruises. * 12 trips around the world. * 857 fur coats. * Numerous diamonds. Additionally, there were countless gift certificates, travel trailers, airplanes, swimming pools, furniture, kitchen appliances (large and small), rooms of furniture, clothing, stereos and televisions, fantastic nights out on the town and virtually any other item seen in any mail-order catalog. One history of the 1958-1973 series reported the total prize giveaway at $10 million. Speaking of prizes, the prize values were deliberately much, much smaller than those of the big-money quiz shows implicated as part of the scandals of the late-1950s. Barry and Enright deliberately kept the winnings low-value to avoid any suggestion that it, too, was tainted. Usually, there was at least one prize worth more than $1000; however, nearly all the other prizes were worth less than $500 with some in the $10-$100 range. A board of prizes rarely totalled more than $2000-$3000 and champions rarely took home more than that in merchandise during their stay (though some longer-lived winners approached $10,000). Milton Bradley (and later, Pressman and Endless Games) marketed home versions of Concentration (and later, Classic Concentration); millions of copies of more than 25 editions of this best-selling, enduring game have been sold since the first one went on sale in 1959.moreless
