"Drama, Suspense, Decision, on Face the Facts. Brought to you by heavy-duty Breeze, the cannon premium in every box. And here's the star of our show, Red Rowe!"

Face the Facts was a short-lived game show that featured four contestants trying to guess the outcome of criminal cases.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

A case, based on real incidents that have been tried and judges on the court, was reenacted using actors as plaintiffs and defendants. The contestants were given 500 points to start with; just prior to the verdict the action was stopped and the contestants would wager any or all of their points based on their ability to predict the outcome. The player with the most points at the end of the show won merchandise prizes.
