[quote name=\'The Ol' Guy\' date=\'Aug 3 2004, 11:50 AM\'] etc, etc.... Also like the H2 end game. Combine true and false statements with wagering, as you do in the front game. [/quote]
 I like that a lot, but they should be made to wager before getting the question to make it more interesting (or else I read your post wrong).

...yeah..I could see that. The category is the same. A pre-statement bet may add more drama by putting the bettor under more pressure to be right. Could work either way. The bet-then-fact version would work for those who are more high-score conscious. The fact-then-bet gives a person a chance to protect their nest egg if they're not sure with a soft bet. I still lean toward #2 - I'd rather know what I'm risking my money on.

Anyone noticing the past two epsisodes have featured two game show hosts ? Jimmy Pardo of "Funny Money" fame and Regan Burns of "Oblivious" fame.

Maybe they'll have Mark L. Walburg over to promote "On The Cover" ?

Interesting business strategy: take a Goodson format which Fremantle has probably forgotten they own and "emulate" it. Balderdash may be based on a board game but which came first, the board game or Call My Bluff?

Here's one they could do: two teams each consisting of three civilians and one celebrity captain. A question is posed and the celebrity predicts how each civilian has responded. Call it "Telepathy".

This is a suggestion of how they could do it.

I'd keep the rules the same except for starters. Both players start with $100. 2nd round, both players are given $200 additional and in the last round, the players are given $300 additional. Whoever has the most money at the end of the game keeps the dough.

In the bonus round, if you can't find the trip. $100 for every correct answer. That shouldn't hurt PAX too much, would it ?

 I was gonna save this for the pitch session but I have come up with the perfect format and just by hearing the title you know it will work: "Guess My Job."

 Excellent idea.  Can you come up with some questions for this show? :-)

An interesting tidbit from alt.tv.game-shows, 8 years ago:

Scroll down to the sentence on "Whew!"

"Call My Buff"--but I thought one of the Brits said that Goodson sold the show lock, stock and barrel to the BBC.  That doesn't mean that BBC Worldwide couldn't license it to an American producer.

Wow, good catch, man. TK apparently loves Balderdash. It is a fun game to play at home, isn't it? I'm going to have to pick up a new copy someday, probably when Toys R Us has their next board game sale.

But him mentioning Whew! is downright scary, man.

TK refers to Tom Kennedy.  The observation was made by Curt Alliaume.

 I'm not aware of any formats Goodson sold outright. Doesn't mean it didn't happen, though.

Anybody know what came out first?


The Balderdash board game or the Canadian game show "Baloney", which also played a lot like the TV version of Balderdash.

 Baloney ran in summer of 1988.  I'm quite sure Balderdash was created before then.
