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...

Fun game show
15 July 2006 | by (Fairfax, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

First off, I must say that this is a fun game show. Also, I'm not sure if I've seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. Every time I watched it on the WJLA Newtork, I had a lot of fun playing along and watch. During that time, this made me long to be a contestant. Despite the fact that I don't know that many answers, I still have fun playing along. I hope that PAX keeps it on in reruns 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.
