Default Circle gets the square

OK, that one was easy. Hollywood Squares. Some (most) of us may remember this one, some may not.

Let's discuss past/present game shows we like, loathe, etc.

Take for example Family Feud. I came in during the Ray Combs era - thought he was cool. But, I'd never watch it today with Steve Harvey as host - he's a complete tool.

Go ahead, have at it. Game shows.

I'll even throw in a :turkey: for good measure.

Jeopardy - more specifically - Kids Tournament. It's the only time I actually feel competent.

As a kid, I used to like watching "Let's Make A Deal" just for the costumes and the animals they would reveal when someone picked the wrong door.

I was always yelling out, "Hey, Cool! I want a goat, too!" Haha! (I could never understand why they were disappointed.)

That is funny. That is the time I can't watch it. I don't care for the college tournament either. I'm a Jeopardy junky, but don't watch it all that much.


Price is Right - Must be Barker
Family Feud - Ray Combs only

I could sit and watch Price is Right (Barker mostly, but I actually don't mind Drew Carey, which I found surprising) all day long. That show is pretty entertaining.

Wheel of Fortune - no
Jeopardy - depends, but mostly no

Big Bucks, Big Bucks, No Whammies....Stop!
Press Your Luck was the greatest!

Although can anyone tell me what this game show was...
It was on during the early 90's or even the late 80's.
I believe it aired on Saturday mornings.
Kids were the contestants one boy and one girl per team.
I remember the bonus round had one side that were girl prizes and the other was boy prizes. The girl would go through and select the items she thought the boy would pick and vice versa for the boy. Then they had to match the prize they thought the other picked. As a child, I wanted to be on this show. Anyone else remember it??

Was that the same one where they had a maze they had to run through and collect as many prize redemption cards as they could, which determined how many prizes they got to pick out after they won?

Yes, that's how they got to pick the prizes....I couldn't remember, my childhood memories are kinda hazy. We are getting closer to solving this one!! You must be in your 30's too.

I think it was called "I'm telling" The contestants on that one were siblings.

Does anybody know what that one game show was called that was in a grocery market? They would answer grocery questions during the game, then at the end the winners had to race around the store and figure out where to go next by looking at the clue on some kind of food or item. I don't know why but I always watched that show.
