Trivia:
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).See more »

Fun game show, 19 July 2006
Author: Grace Zeh (filmgirlgz@gmail.com) from Chantilly, Virginia, USA

First off, I must say that this was a fun game show. Also, I haven't seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. I still watch it in reruns on the Game Show Network. Every time I've watched it, I had a lot of fun playing along and watching. When I was growing up, this made me long to be a contestant. The thing I like most about it are the questions. Despite the fact that I don't know all the answers, I still have fun playing along. I hope the Game Show Network keeps it on so I can play along and watch for years to come. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
