Game show in which 6 guest stars (which change from week to week) are given a humorous phrase with one word missing. The stars write down a word they think would be most appropriate for the missing word, and then two contestants try to guess what the stars have chosen. A point is given for each correct match, and the one with the most points wins. Written by
It may have been Richard Dawson's charm on "Match Game 73" that prompted its creators 'Mark Goodson' and Bill Todman to build him a game show all his own: ABC Television's Family Feud (1976). Dawson wound up doing double duty for "Feud" and "Match Game 76 (1976)" before leaving the "Match Game 78 (1978)" panel in 1978 to devote full time to "Feud" for the next 7 seasons to 1985-1986.

I think what made the Match Game such a hit was that anybody who watches it can't help but play. Even though the game had a very weak structure, the comedy, the contestants, the celebrities, and most importantly the revolutionizing questions, make the greatest game show ever. This show didn't make you a millionaire, but for thirty minutes, it made you feel like you had seven friends who's only job was to make you laugh. God Bless You, Gene Rayburn, Brett Somers, Charles Nelson Reilly, Richard Dawson, and Patti Deutsch. (Pardon my spelling)
