$ale of the Century Question
« on: November 13, 2015, 06:20:59 PM »
Does anybody know the background colors for the cash squares (not $10/$15/$25 money cards) in the Fame Game during the Syndicated run and later in the NBC run?

I can narrow down the list.  In the syndicated run:

$500 was dark red.
$600 appeared to be indigo or dark blue.

In the later NBC episodes:

$400 had a pastel yellow background with the dollar amount in red characters.
I am almost certain $900 had a neon green background - correct me if I'm mistaken.

If I can find out the background colors for the other amounts, that would be great.

I do know that there was a number of cash amounts revealed during the Fall 1986 Home Viewer Sweepstakes, as they were once on YouTube (the latter two episodes of Al MacDonald's 10-episode run), but the user took them down on his own terms - possibly due to a copyright claim by GSN/WorldWinner.

Although I had "Who the fark cares?" on my card, I'll accept your answer as quite valid.

If we've learned anything about the Internet, I would say the question has lost its meaning.

Because somewhere, somehow, someway, there is someone who.will care. :)

(could say similar things about society in general, the way some people don't understand how things work)

$1000 was Blue Lettering/ Gold Background (we've gotten that far, I think).
You might very well think that, of course I couldn't possibly commentů

I did view the second last episode of Al McDonald's run from September 1986 that I downloaded a while ago, and I did discover the background colors of two Fame Game cash prizes.  $700 was a dark pink, and $100 was a bluish color.

These Fame Game cash amounts looked to have switched to a neon/pastel color scheme by that point, and it seems as if, by the mid-80s, some game show props were being changed to a neon and/or pastel color scheme (Press Your Luck went neon in August 1985, and NBC Wheel of Fortune changed the wedges to a neon and pastel color scheme sometime around the summer of 1986).

What? Neons and pastels became popular in the 1980s? I don't buy it for a second.
