A laid-back approach in the 1980's to capitalize on the popular game, 'Pictionary'.
13 July 2002 | by (Providence, Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

The late Bert Convy hosts his zillionth (and final) game show in the latter part of the 1980's where just about every board game had been tweaked to become the platform for a game show, ripe for syndication.

"WIN, LOSE OR DRAW" was a rather cheap take on the popular game "Pictionary", the object of drawing a series of doodles on a board, your fellow team-mate(s) trying to figure out what 'word' or 'phrase' you are attempting to depict.

In this case, two teams of three players broken into male and female, compete against the clock to outwit each other by drawing a 'word' given to them by Bert Convy. On each team, two of the players are celebrities which leaves only one male and one female to participate as the true contestant. The celebrities were usually second-rate television personalities. Although in one episode, I do remember seeing former child star of the silver screen, Margaret O'Brien as a celebrity contestant!

The setting of "WIN, LOSE OR DRAW" was supposed to capture the 'family home' setting, the game board positioned in front of two couches with a fireplace behind it, Bert Convy usually wearing a sweater or 'casual' outfits while handing out words to the contestants as they kneeled on the carpet before him to try and figure out the doodles that were being drawn by their fellow players.

Quite a boring take on the 'game show' extravaganza that struck the 1970's and 80's when compared to more exciting and cut-throat fare of today's game shows (ie. "WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE", "THE WEAKEST LINK", "FEAR FACTOR", "DOG EAT DOG") and the money prizes were quite small. The only REAL connection that "WIN, LOSE OR DRAW" shares with nearly every other game show that has existed is that you will always find the 'dumb contestant'. Watch out for the player who tries to doodle a bird but draws something else that resembles a triangle with two lines for legs as his team shouts out, "CHEESE? IS IT A SLICE OF PIZZA?" - *Groan!*

"WIN, LOSE OR DRAW" is perfect 80's nostalgia (ie. fashions, hair-styles, etc.) but certainly not up there with the more memorable shows like "FAMILY FEUD" or "THE $25,000.00 PYRAMID".
