Strike It Rich (1986–1999)
Quiz show in which one half of three couples answers multiple general knowledge questions while his partner attempts to predict successfully whether a prize or a forfeit lies behind each of ten television screens.- Written by Charles Coulston
2 Couples (Married, Engaged or Dating) competed for cash and prizes in a quiz show. Each Couple played their own lane of 7 spaces and played 1 at a time. A Category was revealed (examples: nicknames or folk singers) along with 5 answers. The playing couple chose a "contract" of 1, 2 or 3 questions. The Number of Questions to be answered that proved what the number of spaces to be revealed. Each space revealed either a prize or "The Bandit" who robbed them of all their prizes as well as control of the game board. A wrong answer would also cause a team to lose control to their opponents. After correctly answering a question, a team could bank their gifts or risk them by going on. The 1st team to complete their lane (7 prize spaces and then 1 final question won the game). In the bonus round called "Get Rich Quick", 2 people of the couple will played in 2 separate lanes (Up and Down) to play for 1 space and the option to chose top or bottom space at each stop. There's 7 dollar-signs and 7 bandits mixed and concealed before play. The Goal was to find 5 or 6 dollar-signs to win otherwise finding 3 bandits to lose the game. The Payoffs are $100 for each dollar-sign that found, $5000 for 5 dollar-signs and $20,000+ car for 6 dollar-signs.- Written by Benjamin Hallums-Rowe <email@example.com>
