The series was produced by Rainbow Productions, otherwise known as Joe Cates Productions.
Two players, usually women, competed. The object was to identify an image of a celebrity's face, which was concealed behind a 5x5 grid, with the horizontal dimension showing letters and the vertical dimension showing categories. One contestant picks a category and the other picks a letter. The person who picked the letter then must name something that starts with that letter and that also fits the category chosen by the other player. If she does this, she gets to see the part of the portrait behind the square that corresponds to the category and number chosen, and she also gets a free guess. If she is wrong, her opponent gets the free guess. The first to guess the picture gets the better role in the bonus round and gets to come to play the next game.
In the bonus game the winner secretly chooses one of two prizes titled "Haggis" or "Baggis". If the opponent picks the other package, each contestant wins the prizes they chose; if not, then only the champion wins whatever she selected.
Champions could stay on the program until defeated.
The nighttime series ran from June 20 to September 29,... Read More
