The object of the game is simple...to get to the top of the Pyramid (aka "Winner's Circle") in the shortest time possible. But to do so, contestants must face celebrities (and vice versa) by naming as many answers in a particular category as possible within 30 seconds. If a contestant wins the main game, they get the right to go to the Winner's Circle to try for the grand prize, which throughout the series has ranged from $10,000 to $25,000. The most popular incarnation of the series has been "The $100,000 Pyramid", where three top contestants who have gone to the pyramid in the shortest amount of time return for a Tournament Of Champions, which the grand prize is $100,000.

The highest scoring main games on record (through some amazing tie-breakers) occurred during the Friday, July 4, 1975 broadcast featuring Lucie Arnaz and Anson Williams with a score 45-44 and the Monday, June 12, 1978 episode with a score 43-42 featuring Sandy Duncan and Nipsey Russell. The celebrity guest, with his civilian partner, who was able to win at the big pyramid in the quickest time on record was Billy Crystal in November 1977 with an amazing 26 seconds (while a few others have done it in 30 seconds).

I guess this is the place to comment on The (New) $25,000 Pyramid. I think this is a neat game and I like seeing all the panelists and alot of them are from the old reruns that I like to watch! I have never seen a listing for the $10,000 Pyramid on Game Show Network but have seen listings for $25,000 and $100,000 Pyramids and I think both of those are neat games to watch.
