Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 ... See full summary »
Contestants were asked questions about how 100 people answered a poll question then played a card game where they tried to guess whether the next card drawn from a deck in a sequence would be higher or lower.
Contestants guess hidden phrases by guessing letters one at a time. Contestants win money or prizes, as determined by a spin of the wheel, for each correct consonant they guess. But they have to pay to see what vowels are in a puzzle. The contestant that has amassed the most winnings at the end of a game goes on to play the bonus round, in which the player can win even more -- prizes frequently seen in the bonus round include automobiles, vacations and more cash.

This gameshow was great when I was a kid. Contestants taking their hard earned money to buy grotesque prizes... it was wonderful. Now it's getting all a little overdone, like most gameshows nowadays. The excess graphics and hoopla surrounding the show really doesn't jazz up the game itself, which has become dull ever since they stopped with the shopping segments and when they started giving you R, S, T, L, N, and E automatically. And is Vanna White even necessary anymore? She touches the screen! They can do that automatically.
It's not a bad show - just no fun for me anymore. It's just another case of a gameshow taking itself way too seriously. Please bring back the simplicity and fun of the old gameshows!
