For those not in the US or too young to remember it, "Press Your Luck" was a bit of a cult classic for the ridiculously gaudy "Big Board" that made up the game, and the animated Whammies that took away players' money.

I love Win, Lose or Draw, Match Game, Lingo, & that game where they had celebrities and their spouse and they would have to guess what how their spouse answered questions....kind of like a celebrity newlywed game. :lol:

I once saw Neely and Gomez on Tattletales.

It's not all bad that Floyd croaked before the advent of 70s gameshows.
