Storyline

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.

It didn't matter what money figure was on the name of the show, it was the best game show in my opinion of all time, very exciting and nerveracking. I know there is a new version which is the same game minus the legend host and name celebs, but I guess Dick Clark and being on network tv made it better. I really favored the 82'-88' version the $25,000 version, I being about 5 or 6 vaguely remember the last few episodes of this version, I really didn't care for the John Davidson version either. I miss those days where games ruled the tv.
