Storyline

Revival of the classic NBC game show where two contestants, one a returning champion, faced a computer-generated board of 25 squares. Game play was the same as before: Each contestant called out a pair of numbers on the board, which contained the names of prizes and WILD and TAKE cards (the latter two explained later). No match passed control to the opponent, but a match gave whatever prize was named or a TAKE marker, revealed two pieces of the rebus (identifying a person, phrase, place, thing, etc.) and allowed him/her a chance to solve the rebus. WILD cards provided an automatic match; revealing two WILD cards in the same turn earned a $500 bonus, while uncovering the third take meant a $1,000 bonus and the opportunity to reveal up to five pieces of the rebus at once. Contestants uncovering a TAKE card (red and green cards, with a color match required) could, upon a correct match, elect to hold onto the marker to wait for their opponent to collect a better prize or to take back a ...

Trivia

Originally, when the show debuted, there were no green and red "TAKE" cards. On November 11, 1987, a green "TAKE" card, was added, followed by a red "TAKE" card, on February 9, 1988. After a contestant has made a match, or matched one of the take cards, by exact color, the contestant was given an option as to whether he/she took one of their opponent's prizes, by using a "TAKE" card or wait until another possible match, but cannot be used into another round.

Fun game show
4 May 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show when I was a little girl. First off, I must say that it was a fun game show. Also, I haven't seen every episode. However, if you ask me, it was still a good show. I don't remember the theme song at all, though. Even so, it was fun to play along and watch. I hope some network brings it back so I can play along and watch again. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I haven't seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, if some network ever brings it back, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
