Three contestants one a returning champion competed in this game of strategy. The game consisted of two rounds, each with two parts. In the first part of each round, host Tomarken read a toss-up question; the first to signal is given a chance to answer. That response, plus two other possible answers are then listed, with the other two contestant then given a chance to choose from the three listed answers. A correct answer earned the first contestant three spins and his/her opponents one spin each. Four such questions were played; the players used the spins to accumulate cash and prizes on an 18-space board. One contestant at a time is in control of the board; he/she stopped a randomly-flashing cursor by pressing his signal device (and usually the scream "STOP!").

CBS, Daytime, Mid 80s. An exciting game show is played on the television screen. That game is called "Press Your Luck!!!!!" It's a show where, at first, three contestants HAVE to go through and answer trivia questions. After commercial, the fun begins: a giant, blooping, colorful video board (looks like a board game) has prizes, cash, and WHAMMIES switching places while lights flash on the squares, hoping NOT to get whammied!!!!!
And yes, I've seen that ice cream man two-parter, on "The 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time" on GSN. It was exciting, seeing how all the cash and three prizes went to him. It might ruin the excitement for some, but it's still good.
This was an exciting show, and I can see this on 11:30 on GSN.
