Just like The Price Is Right is...you have a bunch of minigames in there, and then everyone comes back and plays the soccer pitch game for the car at the end.
I have this vague memory of watching Spanish television with my mom and some guy was in a soccer kit, moving along squares on the floor, and whatever the arrow was, he would move that way until finding two yellow cards which would send him off. (I suspect if he got close enough he could kick for the car.

Does this sound about right?

That's exactly the one. Chunks of Astroturf covered up the squares.

I had forgotten about the 15 minutes of game show fun that they are forced to squeeze into 6 minutes at the end of the show.

New to the top of the pile: 100 Mexicanos Dijeron. The is a very nice production. Each question is limited to exactly five correct answers but each question is on a card with white lettering on a black background so it can be read from a distance. The game comes with 480 questions.

This just in: Privé de sens, a Canadian French-language game show home game. There were five of them on a thrift store shelf.

Sounds like a great score!
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

When you click this link, you can see some home versions of popular Canadian game/reality shows in French:

And at this next link, you'll see a version of what was known in the U.S. as "Who's Still Standing," "first marketed in Israel.":

Several months ago out of nowhere I found a home game of France's Fort Boyard--UK version is close to the original, the American pilot not at all.

/Not included: Bengal tigers to guard the treasure room or diminutive key-keepers to hold on to the prizes won by the team.
