Feel free to comment. I've tried to make all of the clues as fair as possible (and included alternate answers if they are applicable.) Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions. Thanks!
Jan 14th, 2010 at 17:00 GMT
You need to force the order of answers- otherwise, anyone can guess "Jeopardy!" even if they don't know who Ken Jennings is. Aside from that, though, I like this quiz- good variety of clues and shows. I can't believe I missed "Match Game"- I'm kicking myself. A few more you could use (not that you NEED to or SHOULD, just suggestions): "Slime" for "Double Dare" and its various incarnations; "Olmec" for "Legends of the Hidden Temple"; and the late, great "Ober" for "Remote Control".

I was trying to keep the quiz at 20 (I have a thing for round numbers), so if you can think of 7-8 more, i'll bump it to 30 (and 8 minutes)

Could you accept blankety blank for match game. It's the UK name for the show with the same format.
Jan 14th, 2010 at 17:31 GMT
Copy. I did include family fortunes for family feud. Adding the alternate answer now.
Jan 14th, 2010 at 17:45 GMT
I suggest replacig "case" with "briefcase" or "attache", but something a little more specific. And I agree with Kicking222 that you have to force players to answer in order. (It's a checkbox on the first page of the Create screens.)
Jan 14th, 2010 at 18:14 GMT
Took the advice of both. I couldn't remember if the other one word games were forcing them to answer in order. I was looking for continuity across quizzes. Thanks for the help! Feel free to continue to comment and we'll make any necessary changes.

Nice quiz! Suggestions: "Bachelor" for The Dating Game....Maybe "Whoopee" for The Newlywed Game? :)
Jan 20th, 2010 at 16:48 GMT
Loved it and think the clues are perfect. I can't comment on the one for Winning Lines since I've never heard of the show. :(
Jan 20th, 2010 at 17:57 GMT
Thanks! Winning Lines only had a few shows in the US (Hosted by Dick Clark) but numerous seasons in the UK. The Wonderwall was the name of the bonus round (and was, unfortunately, the only memorable part of the show.)
Jan 20th, 2010 at 18:10 GMT
"Blank" is way too general. Many game shows could fit there, including but certainly not limited to "Body Language" (which could be added to the quiz with "Charades" perhaps). Good job otherwise.
Jan 21st, 2010 at 00:25 GMT
@Mikeo924, I do think that "Blank" plays a more prominent role in Match Game (or Blankety Blank) than in Body Language. Yes, there are "blanks", but it's just not central to the show as it is in Match Game.
Jan 21st, 2010 at 03:41 GMT
I so much prefer random order. You may get a "gimmie" here and there, but I don't like taking the time to click on each clue. It takes the fun out of it. Otherwise...good quiz.

I'll admit that when I saw Maury I thought that his segments with paternity test counted as a game show. "You are NOT the father."
Jan 21st, 2010 at 21:20 GMT
@procrst That was hysterical.

Thank you, Cora... adding alternates.
Jan 24th, 2010 at 08:33 GMT
I think "Blankety Blanks" should be accepted for those outside the US. :)
Jan 28th, 2010 at 05:50 GMT
Fun quiz! I agree with Datazoid. I've seen the YouTube clips of "Blankety Blank." Quite like Match Game.
Feb 12th, 2010 at 08:49 GMT
That was a perfect quiz.
Feb 12th, 2010 at 21:37 GMT
"Stopper" would also work for Lingo.
Mar 4th, 2010 at 06:44 GMT
Stopper is a Lingo term, yes. Also, I actually completely blanked on Jennings, and I would like to point out that there was a version of the show "Press Your Luck" that came out under the name "Whammy", so that technically should also be accepted.
Apr 13th, 2010 at 04:40 GMT
This is a fantastic quiz! Great work! The clues are just tricky enough to make it easy if you know the show, yet not so obscure to make it too hard.
Oct 20th, 2010 at 03:05 GMT
Great quiz. Maybe another could be Groucho or Duck for You Bet Your Life. I drew a blank on Jennings, even though that is my all time favorite game show.
May 6th, 2012 at 04:47 GMT
Maury for "21"? Not many may remember Maury's version. I think you should've used "Van Doren" or something, because I'm guessing many will remember the infamous fixed version of the show.
Dec 29th, 2012 at 12:47 GMT
Damn Lee, I was a contestant on Greed (12.5 years ago), and I didn't even get that one. Good quiz.
