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

Especially Exciting
12 May 2000 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite game shows of all time. The celebrity contests were especially exciting. Michael Landon was one of the best, but as I recall, Sandy Baron beat him out for the championship. Those guys would often guess the phrase even before their partner had stuck the letters on the board.
