Excellent game show
7 March 2005 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

Bruce Forsyth first hosted Play Your Cards Right in 1979 but it was axed when he defected to the BBC for the Generation Game in the early 1990's. Whe he went back to ITV in the mid to late 90's, it was revived, but not for long. Brucie is now back at the BBC with Strictly Come Dancing.

Two couples competed and were asked a question and then the fun started. They were given a base card and then had to guess which of the following cards were higher or lower. If things went right, they won but if they were wrong, the other couple had a go. Pairs were not allowed either. The winning couple went on to the final round where they played for cash and other prizes, including cars and holidays.

Play Your Cards Right was noted for Brucie's sayings, which include "You don't get anything for a pair, not in this game" and "Nice to see you, to see you nice".

I rather miss this show and would be nice to see it back.
