This was a very fun game. I enjoy playing it with my family and friends. I saw that people said it’s bad but they are really wrong. It’s definitely worth buying. It’s just like the show and it keeps score and everything.

I’ve played this game several times with my friends and family… It’s a hit every time. The scoring is kept on the TV and while it takes a turn to get used it, but after that it’s pretty easy to do. Basically, when someone gets a question right, you hit the up arrow. It’s very cool.
While the show set doesn’t look like the original orange shag carpet 70s set, the one in this game is kinda cool and modern. There’s no host, which is nice because my family usually makes fun of hosts in game shows anyway. This version seems to be “cool enough” for everyone.
Basically, if you’re looking for an exact copy of the original show, this isn’t for you. If you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly game with modern music and graphics, this will do the trick. We even played it in the back of a car during a road trip. At $20, it’s a good value.
While the animation is cool, there’s not much else going for it…w/only 15 games, it’s not long before you have to start repeating, which affects the playability. Also, some of the words/phrases are more complicated than what you’d see on TV (Extreme Frisbee?) and the clue-giver can waste a good deal of time on them. Finally, the Winner’s Circle scoring system isn’t anything like the TV show, so I wouldn’t recommend it unless you can deal w/all these shortcomings…for a decent Pyramid home game, pick up the box game of the recent Donny Osmond version, which is much cheaper and far more playable.
