Password Plus (1979–1982)
A high-stakes update of the classic game show, hosted by Allen Ludden. Celebrity guests, paired off with the contestants, would be given a secret password. By giving clues and hints, they would try to help the contestant guess the password, with the first one to do so winning cash and prizes.- Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Two contestants were paired with two celebrity players. In this version of the classic Goodson-Todman game, up to five passwords were played which led to the identity of a well-known person, place, thing, title, etc. The first two rounds were worth $100, with all subsequent rounds worth $200. The first team to score $300 (later $500) won the game and played "Alphabetics." In "Alphabetics," 10 passwords were given one at a time, each beginning with a successive letter of the alphabet (e.g. A through J). The contestant won $100 per correct guess, with a $5,000 prize for getting all 10 passwords within 60 seconds (a progressive jackpot was later added). Players continued until defeated or winning five (later seven) matches.- Written by Brian Rathjen <email@example.com>
