After finding and viewing clips of this late '80s family game show on YouTube, I am ready to give my review. "The Treasure Mall" is one of the wildest and craziest shows where kids go through mall stores searching for gold coins that can earn them great prizes.
In each round, two teams of kids try to guess the top answers to questions surveyed by various people. The first team to reach five points goes on to a store to hunt for the coins. The team with the most coins after two rounds goes on to the big treasure chest where they can win more great stuff like a vacation. All they have to do is find to winning key that would open the chest.
I would say that the Treasure Mall is a show worth shopping at, so to speak. As wild as it is, it deserves an overall 8. And did I mention that the Host, Hal Sparks, is just as wild as the show itself? I also recommend with this show in that time period two others--"Slime Time" and "I'm Telling".moreless
