In the first part of each round, host Tomarken read a toss-up question; the first to signal is given a chance to answer.

Contestants who accumulated four Whammies in the first round were allowed to leave the set during the commercial break, sparing them the embarrassment of sitting idle on camera through the second round. See more »

CBS, Daytime, Mid 80s. An exciting game show is played on the television screen. That game is called "Press Your Luck!!!!!" It's a show where, at first, three contestants HAVE to go through and answer trivia questions. After commercial, the fun begins: a giant, blooping, colorful video board (looks like a board game) has prizes, cash, and WHAMMIES switching places while lights flash on the squares, hoping NOT to get whammied!!!!!
And yes, I've seen that ice cream man two-parter, on "The 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time" on GSN. It was exciting, seeing how all the cash and three prizes went to him. It might ruin the excitement for some, but it's still good.
This was an exciting show, and I can see this on 11:30 on GSN.
