Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Words and Music" (1970-1971)

Answer: Wink Martindale

Appearing on NBC, "Words and Music" only lasted for one season. It was hosted by Wink Martindale (born 1933), best known as a host of "Tic Tac Dough". A series of clues appeared on a large board. Each clue was the hint to a key word in a tune performed by one of four singers.

Interestingly, the show did not have a bonus round. (Perhaps this might explain why the show had a relatively brief run.)
2. "Three on a Match" (1971-1974)

Answer: Bill Cullen

Bill Cullen (1920-1990) was the host of "Three on a Match" on NBC. The main feature of the show was the contestants trying to answer true/false questions correctly. This would earn the contestant money that could be used to play the Prize Board in the bonus round, where you won a prize if you could claim three spots. "Three on a Match" was broadcast in the same time slot (1:30 PM) as "Words and Music" the year before.
3. "The Price is Right" (1972-2007)

Answer: Bob Barker

While Bill Cullen hosted an earlier version (1956-1965) of "The Price is Right", Bob Barker (born 1923) had a thirty-five season run on a revamped version of the show. The one-bid segment from contestant's row in Barker's series was based on the gameplay of the original game.

The show featured many well known occasional segments such as "Cliff Hangers", "Hole in One (Or Two)", and "Plinko". "The Big Wheel", and the "Showcase Showdown" are daily occurences.
4. "The $10,000 Pyramid" (1973-1976)

Answer: Dick Clark

Several versions of the "Pyramid" game show have appeared on the years, many hosted by Dick Clark (1929-2012). The original was "The $10,000 Pyramid". In the opening rounds, two contestants (each with a celebrity partner) competed by taking turns trying to guess a series of words based around a common theme.

In the Winner's Circle, one partner attempts to get the other to name six categories by giving a list of examples. Naming all six categories led to a prize of $10,000.
5. "Name That Tune" (1974-1981)

Answer: Tom Kennedy

The original "Name That Tune" was broadcast on the radio in the 1950s. A more successful version of the series was hosted by Tom Kennedy (1927-2020). In later seasons, the top prize for the show was $100,000. The game featured several rounds including "Melody Roulette" where a spinning wheel was used to choose a category and "Bid a Note" where one contestant tried to name songs in fewer notes than the other.

In the finale "Golden Medley", contestants tried to name seven songs in 30 seconds.
6. "Wheel of Fortune" (1975-1981)

Answer: Chuck Woolery

Chuck Woolery (born 1941) was the initial host of "Wheel of Fortune" on NBC. The series initially alternated between the now-familiar "Hangman" style puzzles with showcases where the winning contestant of a round would spend the earned money "buying" various prizes.

In the puzzle rounds, contestants would spend a large wheel to determine the dollar value of the letter selected on that turn. For most of Woolery's run, the show did not have a regular bonus round.
7. "Family Feud" (1976-1985)

Answer: Richard Dawson

Richard Dawson (1932-2022) was the host of "Family Feud" on ABC. The team featured two teams of five family members each. The main action of the game is choosing the most popular responses from surveys. This was loosely adapted form the "Super Match" segment of the Gene Rayburn series "Match Game". Almost as well known as the game play itself was Dawson's practice of kissing all the female contestants.
8. "Hollywood Connection" (1977-1978)

Answer: Jim Lange

This syndicated game show featured Jim Lange (1932-2014) as the host. It was similar in format to "Match Game". The contestants faced a panel of celebrities and were asked questions about the celebrities themselves. The contestants hoped to match the answer of a celebrity.

Some of the incidental music used on the show would later be re-used on one of the incarnations of "The Joker's Wild".
9. "Card Sharks" (1978-1981)

Answer: Jim Perry

Based on the game "Acey-Ducey", "Card Sharks" featured contestants trying to guess whether a particular card was higher or lower than the previous card. The contestants earned a chance to do this by getting the closer answer to a question that was based on a survey of 100 people. Jim Perry was the host of the series when it initially aired on NBC.

The winner of the regular round would move onto a bonus round which featured just the "Acey-Ducey" element.
10. "Mindreaders" (1979-1980)

Answer: Dick Martin

Dick Martin (1922-2008), the co-host of "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In", was the host of this short-lived NBC show. The game featured two teams of four players each (three contestants and a celebrity captain). The captain would try to guess how the other contestants had answered a series of questions.

The bonus round featured a "jury" of ten audience members that helped to inspire a similar mechanic in the 1980s version of "Card Sharks".
