Storyline

An Australian version of the American TV show of the same name. In this quiz/game show, contestants had to answer relatively simple questions on general knowledge categories. Correct answers earned the contestants a few dollars. The show's gimmick was that the contestants could then exchange some of their money for expensive prizes which would be offered at extreme discounts. The contestant who finished the show with the most cash could then return to compete in the next show. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

It's dead.
19 February 2003 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Probably the best game show ever on TV. Definately not as cheap as Wheel Of Fortune or The Price Is Right. I mean cheap both in the money and classiness contexts. Always entertaining and smart. The Masters series were the best, with the greatest players ever battling it out.

After 1999 the show changed it's name to Sale of the New Century and was cancalled. But that was for the best, the new show was crap. I will always hold fond memories of this show.
