In this series, contestants play a variant of Tic Tac Toe by answering questions in order to play their X or O on an electronic game board in order to get three in a row. After that, the winner plays a bonus round where they attempt to get another three in row without accidently picking the screen with a dragon that will cost them their bonus game winnings. Written by

Over the course of nine weeks on the show in 1980, contestant Thom McKee defeated 43 opponents to win eight cars and take home $312,700 in cash and prizes, a record at the time. Over $200,000 of his winnings was in cash. In one game, he broke the record for winning the biggest pot in a match, which was $36,800 after four tie games against challenger Pete Cooper (the record was overtaken later in the series by contestant Randy James, who competed in a series of tie games that lasted for six consecutive shows before winning the final pot of $46,900).

I've seen this on Game Show Network in 2000, but only in bits and pieces of it! This was a very good game show from the 80s, this "Tic Tac Dough." I remember the weird synth tune that played at the beginning; the AMC station wagon that was always given away, and best of all, I liked the board! Kind of like what you would see on "Press Your Luck," the graphics and sounds all look and sound like the board was created and operated on one of those ancient Apples. (bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop!!!!!) The dragon was awesome, because of the self-draw-in and that fake roaring sound!!!!! LOL
Anyways, that's what I remember about this show. I hope GSN decides to bring back this show soon. It's nice to see that network bounce back from their "Dark Period of the 2000s!!!!!" While Disney has it's "Dark Period," I'll be watching the classic game shows!!!!!
10 stars for this cool game show
