In this series, contestants play a variant of Tic Tac Toe by answering questions in order to play their X or O on an electronic game board in order to get three in a row. After that, the winner plays a bonus round where they attempt to get another three in row without accidently picking the screen with a dragon that will cost them their bonus game winnings.

Did You Know?


In an interview, Wink Martindale said that while the CBS version began airing, Barry & Enright Productions secured a spot to air a syndicated version that began in the fall (the idea being to make it the first game show to air in both network daytime and daily syndication). The CBS version ended due to poor ratings, but the syndicated version drew high numbers, and as a result, had an eight-year run. See more »

Fun game show
18 July 2006 | by Catherine_Grace_ZehSee all my reviews

First off, I must say that this is a fun game show. Also, since I'm 24, I haven't seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. Every time I've watched it, I've had a lot of fun playing along and watching. Despite the fact that it's finished its run, this makes me long to be a contestant. The thing I like most about it are the questions. Also, even though I don't know that many answers, I still have fun playing along. I hope the Game Show Network keeps it on 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 once it stops airing for good. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
