The Match Game

This is the first of five incarnations of the Match Game Show. Featuring celebritries as panel members who 'filled in' the blanks of the questions by writing their solution on a card. Contestants would try to match the celebrities answer(s). Simple but enjoyable for quiz show fans. Some humour often resulted between the host and panel members.
