Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Bullseye (1980-1982)

Answer: Jim Lange

Jim Lange (1932-2014) hosted this version of "Bullseye" in syndication. The contestant would start and stop spinning wheels which displayed various categories and dollar amounts in various windows. Incorrect answers transferred control from one contestant to another. A bullseye allowed the contestant to answer unlimited questions. The goal was to bank $1000.
2. Everything Goes (1981-1988)

Answer: Kip Addotta

Kip Addotta (1944-2019) hosted "Everything Goes", first on Escapade and then on the Playboy Channel. The channels on which the show aired allowed for somewhat more risque behavior than was typical for US broadcast television of the 1980s. Contestants tried to determine if the answer a celebrity panelist gave to a question or not was correct.

This would determine who had to remove an article of clothing.
3. The $25,000 Pyramid (1982-1988)

Answer: Dick Clark

CBS showed "The $25,000 Pyramid" starring Dick Clark (1929-2012). Similar to other "Pyramid" games, contestants played with a celebrity partner. One would try to get the other to guess a series of related terms by giving clues. One feature of this version was if the regular rounds ended in a 21-21 tie (both teams guessed all of the clues), the tiebreaker round would give the winner a new car.

This was later changed to a $5,000 bonus.
4. Press Your Luck (1983-1986)

Answer: Peter Tomarken

"Press Your Luck" played in two parts. In the first part, contestants would answer questions to order "spins" on board. In the second part, the spins would be used to win cash and prizes from the board. A recurring feature of the game were "Whammies", cartoon characters that would appear on the board taking the contestants winnings away. Peter Tomarken (1942-2006) hosted "Press Your Luck" on CBS.
5. "Super Password" (1984-1989)

Answer: Bert Convy

Bert Convy (1933-1991) hosted "Super Password" on NBC. Like most versions of password, the game featured two-member teams: a contestant and a celebrity player. One member of the team tried to get the other to guess a particular word by another one-word clue.

In the bonus round, one player tried to get the other to guess 10 words (starting with consecutive letters of the alphabet) in 60 seconds.
6. Jackpot (1985-1988)

Answer: Mike Darrow

Mike Darrow (1933-1996) hosted "Jackpot" on both the USA network and the Global Television Network. Sixteen contestants competed on this show. One contestant with the designated "king or queen of the hill". This player would call on one of the other players who had an wallet with a trivia question and a cash amount. Get the answer right and that money would be added to the pot. Get the answer wrong and the two contestants would change places.
7. Strike It Rich (1986-1987)

Answer: Joe Garagiola

Joe Garagiola hosted "Strike It Rich" in syndication. Two couples competed in answering questions. Each couple traveled along a path with television monitors stationed along the way. A "bandit" figure randomly appeared in one of the monitors and could steal prizes that a couple had won, but not banked. In the game's bonus round, the winning couple could play for $5000 and a car.
8. Classic Concentration (1987-1991)

Answer: Alex Trebek

"Classic Concentration" was hosted by Alex Trebek on NBC. Like other versions of the game, contestant tried to make matches on the board to gradually reveal a rebus to solve and win the game. By making matches, the contestant accumulated various prizes.

In the bonus round, the contestant again made matches to win one of eight cars. "Take" cards allowed contestants to steal prizes from each other.
9. Family Feud (1988-1994)

Answer: Ray Combs

Ray Combs (1956-1996) hosted this version of "Family Feud" on CBS. Like in other versions of the game, two families competed to see who could best guess popular answers to a survey question. In the "Fast Money" round, two members of the winning family answered the same question to win a large cash prize. Layer in the show's run, a pre-game called "Bullseye" allowed a family to increase the prize in the "Fast Money" round.
10. Top Card (1989-1991)

Answer: Jim Caldwell

Jim Caldwell hosted the first two seasons of "Top Card" on TNN. Contestants answered questions from a three by three grid. Each correct answer earned the contestant a playing card. The playing card could be exchanged for the top card from a deck. Contestants could stop answering questions when they wished.

The winner was determined from the "hands" each contestant had, using somewhat modified blackjack rules.
