Can you identify these '80s game shows by their sets alone?

Come one down and try to avoid the Whammies!

Come on down! Grab the buzzer. (A mouse will do.) We're looking back at some of our favorite game shows from the 1980s. One catch — we're not telling you what they are just yet.

You watched them when you were home sick. Nothing could cheer us up on a sick day like a bowl of tomato soup and Wink Martindale. The flashing sets were covered in light bulbs, like a little Vegas on your TV screen.

Let's test your memory and see if you can identify these fun-filled game shows that aired in the '80s. You're a true game show ace if you can get 8 or more correct. Good luck!
  1. We're going to put an easy one on the board first. What show is this?

  2. This beloved show is still going strong today, though sadly without this part.

  3. Smash your button if you know this one. (But don't really do that. You'll break your computer.)

  4. You had to watch out for the dragon on this show.

  5. Let's see if you can deal with this one.

  6. What about this one?

  7. You had to be quick on the buzzer and quick on your feet for this one.

  8. This one got physical, too.

  9. Now we head into the difficult final round. See if you can name this one.

  10. Last one. You are a true game show guru if you can identify this one.

Can you identify these '80s game shows by their sets alone?

10/10 I remember watching those game shows when I was home sick or there was no school. (In Service Day/Holiday) I always liked Press Your Luck. I always kept yelling/cheering for the Whammies. Anyone remember the Press Your Luck scandal?

9/10. I saw Concentration listed as a choice, that was a great game show. Does anyone remember a 60’s game show called “The Face Is Familiar” hosted by Hugh Downs?
cperrynaples Jaxter14 29 days ago
No, because it was hosted by Jack Whitaker while Downs hosted Concentration! You can't trip me on game shows...LOL!

Thanks for that correction, it’s been a while but I’m glad someone else actually remembers that show and I totally forgot about Jack Whitaker. Great Job! 😃
