Anniversary Game featured three married couples who competed for points and prizes by performing stunts and answering questions in this short-lived daily syndicated game show.


Round 1[]

The first round consisted of each of the spouses predicting how their mates would react in a practical joke or gag situation. a correct guess scored points.

Round 2[]

The second round had all three married couples competing against each other to complete a stunt, the winner of which would receive points.

Round 3[]

The third and final round had all three couples answering general knowledge questions for points to determine the day's champion. The value of each question was determined by a randomized board with 27 numbered lights with values ranging from one to ten points. When a player buzzed in to answer the question, the randomizer stopped. There was also space in the middle of the board, called the "Big 1." If hit, the couple would receive a special one-point prize. Contestants who buzzed in were recognized by the point value, and then their name.

The couple with the most points was the winner, and they received a merchandise prize called "The Anniversary Surprise".
