a great updated version of password
3 July 2001 | by (north carolina) – See all my reviews

this version of password is my favorite because it's got a very cool set and some great new features like the cashword I like that because you can add some big money to your winnings just in the main game and if your the looser you can still leave with big money and my very favorite feature is the super password round because if you don't get all ten words the jackpot goes up 5000 dollars until someone wins it I think that's what made people watch it for five seasons because it added a little thrill to the game of course we can't forget the puzzles to me thats the greatest addition to the main game because there challenging and the contestants don't have forever to guess the password like in the old password I think allen ludden would be very proud of what became of password I sure am and I hope we see a new version soon
