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.

Trivia

On Monday, 23 December 1974, ABC's "$10,000 Pyramid" welcomed a new time-slot (2:00pm Mondays-Fridays [Eastern]) and a new feature called "The Big 7", which if a team picked a category where a special designated card was hidden beneath somewhere on the mini pyramid game board during the main game, the civilian contestant would be eligible to win a bonus prize if he or she was able to get a perfect score of seven points within a round.

The $20,000 Pyramid (1976-1980)
5 September 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

After 4 seasons of winning $10,000 and the title & the value are both changed & raised into $20,000 for "THE $20,000 PYRAMID!" It debuted on January 19, 1976 and the 2 teams are now playing in 2 parts instead of the full Qualifying Round. The 6 subjects on the "Play-A-long Pyramid" was shown. Each subject contains of 7 things to be describe them and also an question for each of the 6 subjects can be read by the host. The Team has 30 seconds to describe number of things to score. However, When the team scores 7 out of 7 that'll be the perfect score of the same number 7. The 1st team scores the most points wins, Otherwise that'll score 21 wins $1000 and going to "The Winner's Circle" for 2 cash rewards. The 1st tryout is worth $10,000 and the 2nd and last tryout was $15,000 and later tried for $20,000. one of each member of the team has 60 seconds to give a list of things from the related subject that collects the value on the pyramid in the following: 3 subjects worth $50, 2 Subjects worth $100 and 1 subject worth $200. The Possible total was $500 as same as the bonus cash of the new feature card called "The BIG 7!" One Member of the team shouldn't use/give a thing into the description in 2 things (Play-Along Pyramid & The Winner's Circle) will might sound a "Cuckoo" and the thing removed from it in several unoccasional ways. ABC-TV finally cancelled the program in 1980.
