Win, Lose or Draw (1987–1990)
Syndicated show produced between 1987 and 1989; debuted in the USA in September 1987. Two teams of three men and three women competed; one person from a team was given the name of a famous person and had to communicate the name to the rest of the team by drawing pictures.- Written by J.E.

One of the few successful new game shows of the 1980s, two three-member teams--each composed of two celebrities and one contestant--competed in this game of pictorial charades. One member of the team is shown a phrase (or perhaps the name of a person, place, thing, etc.) and is given 60 seconds to convey the solution by drawing pictures of the phrase's key words; at the 30-second mark, the team member could ask a fellow teammate to continue drawing the solution. If the contestant (or one of his celebrity teammates) could guess the solution, the player won $200 (or $100 if a hand-off was taken), otherwise, the opposing team has a chance to guess for $100. Three rounds were played, followed by a bonus round, in which both contestants competed. Each contestant was given 90 seconds to guess (or try to convey) as many one-word answers as they could, at $100 apiece; the trailing contestant after three rounds went first, followed by the third-round leader. The winner after three rounds won $1,000 and returned to compete on the next show.- Written by Brian Rathjen <email@example.com>
