In this game show, contestants answer trivia questions and then compete in a timed race through the supermarket. The team that has the most valuable items in their shopping cart at the end of the race wins.
Running for over 30 years, this popular game show had a wide variety of contests and games, all with the same basic challenge: guess the prices of everyday (and some not-so-everyday) items. The contestants whose estimates were the closest would win the prizes and move on to more difficult games with even bigger prizes. Written by

This show rules! Its really cool how a show that has been on since 1972 continues to do so well, and I think because its just really entertaining. They often have a lot of really good prizes, like some really good cars. I think this is a very enjoyable show for people who love to watch GameShows. I hope this comes to GameShow Network..
