Storyline

More than a decade after its last run ended, "Pyramid" saw new life as a syndicated entry hosted by one-time teen heartthrob Donny Osmond. The basic premise was identical to the 1973 classic word association game: Two teams of two (a contestant and a celebrity partner) each try to convey words and/or phrases in any one of six categories. This time, they had just 20 seconds to guess six words correctly. As before the cluegiver could do anything short of saying the word itself to get his/her partner to say the word; the word can be passed on (and scored if they thought of it later), but if the cluegiver blurts out the essence of the word, the word is thrown out and the contestant can't score on it. One of the categories hid a "Super Six" card, which gave the contestant a bonus prize if all six words were guessed. Three go-arounds were played (the celebrity giving the clues the first time, the contestant the next time through and a choice of cluegivers in the final round). The contestant...

Trivia

During the first season, original Pyramid host Dick Clark was a guest player along with game show queen Betty White during a week, called the "Dick Clark Challenge". It was the first time Dick was on the show since 1988 and the first time he was a Pyramid player since 1978. While Clark hosted the daytime version back then, he was a frequent player on the syndicated version of the '70s with Bill Cullen as host. See more »

The best revival of a classic.
6 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

What can I say. This show really sparked the best of the show and basicially even though the show was foolishly canned by Sony for PAT CROCKE The show really needed much better format of the Original. However, I think that the show is the best of the revival of PYRAMID unlike the John Davidson episodes from 1991-92. Dick Clark will still be known as Mr. PYRAMID! However I think that The best thing that PYRAMID will be is that they did that Dick Clark Challenge in 2002 and yet the gameplay of PYRAMID will still be as solid as ever! So for that I give PYRAMID a total of

9/10 Not a bad revival But still one of the best games out there right now.

Watch PYRAMID repeats on PAX TV every night at 7 PM ET/PT!
