Storyline

Revamped version of the classic game show, which mixed in elements of "Candid Camera" and "People are Funny" with the familiar high-low card game based on the rules of Acey-Deucy. Four contestants, two at a time, competed in two separate best-of-three High-Low challenges. In the High-Low challenge, the contestant chosen to go first was shown the base card (in a block of seven) and had to guess whether the next card was higher or lower than the one just shown. An incorrect guess passed control of the block to his/her opponent. At any time, the contestant in control of the cards could use a "Clip Chip" to change the card currently in play.

They Ruined a Great Show
23 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw several episodes of the new Card Sharks and I felt that Fremantle ruined one of the best gambling games on TV. It all started when they eliminated the survey questions, which I thought was one of the best parts of the game since it allowed the home audience to play along, a very important aspect of a successful game show. Instead, they went with Street Smarts, Candid Camera like elements and I felt that was a distraction to the main game.
