Storyline

An updated version of the classic game show, hosted by John Davidson. Celebrities, seated in squares in a tic-tac-toe arrangement, would give their answers to questions on various subjects. The contestants would then have to guess whether or not a celebrity's answer was right. Contestants guessing correctly would gain control of the square. Gaining control of three squares in a row would win the game. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

A fine choice
19 August 1998 | by tekrooSee all my reviews

This was always one of my favorite game shows because the celebrities always provided a lot of entertainment with their answers. I especially liked Alf as the guest host the week John Davidson was on vacation. Joan Rivers was my favorite celebrity and my favorite sponsor was Continental Airlines.
