Storyline

This game consisted of two teams of two players each. One player would be at a game board while their teammate would be in a soundproof booth. The person at the game board communicated a word or phrase to their teammate in the booth using three letters at first and added a letter every five seconds until the word or phrase was identified. The team using fewer letters won the game. Normally there was a "Home Team" consisting of two celebrities and a "Challengers Team" of one celebrity and a contestant. A tie score was considered a win for the contestant, who would win prizes for each game won by the Challengers Team. In other words, if the Challengers won a game, the contestant would win a prize. Each show included a P. D. Q. Special, a three-game match with special prizes awarded to the contestant if the Challengers won two out of the three games. A Bonus Round was held at the end of the show, with the contestant being asked to identify ten words, one at a time in five seconds or less... Written by Steve Bulota

Game show guessing phrases
19 February 1999 | by (Pasadena, CA USA) – See all my reviews

I was beginning to think I had imagined this show. I couldn't find one person my age who remembered or even heard of PDQ. As I recall, there were two sound proof booths with celebrity contestants. The audience contestants would put letters on a ledge on the wall board one at a time, in five second intervals until the celebrity would guess the phrase. The letters were not allowed to have any spaces between them in order to make it more difficult. When (and if) the celebrity guessed, the opposing team would be given a chance to beat their time.

Does anyone else remember this show besides me?
