Game Shows Wiki

The Game Show Network (GSN for short) is the premier network for the airing of classic and modern game shows, and sometimes reality shows and original documentaries. The channel has aired continuously since December 1, 1994. It was rebranded as GSN on March 15, 2004. On May 7, 1992, Sony Pictures Entertainment joined forces with United Video Satellite Group to launch The Game Show Channel (its original name) in 1993 to compete with The Family Channel's very own game show-oriented network called The Game Channel (which later failed to launch on June 1, 1994).

GSN Presents: Family Gameshow (2010)[]

Originally released on May 4, 2010, only for the Nintendo Wii by Storm City Games (i.e. Entertainment) and developed by, GSN Presents: Family Gameshow[1][2][3]features three original "game show" formats which are: Control Freak, Puzzle Addict and Brain Strain! as you and your friends become "contestants" on the best "game show" out there. This was the first and only video game adaptation to be licensed by the channel itself.

Control Freak[]

Hosted by Larry Lightfoot, This is a standard quiz show in which you answer a series of questions from a randomly chosen category. The player is given bonus points for answering the question correctly and promptly. The single-player mode differs a bit from multiplayer though. When playing alone, you have the chance to use a joker card to cut down the number of incorrect answers by giving you a better chance at winning. Multiplayer allows you to select someone to answer correctly, they get the bonus instead. However, if you try to answer the question incorrectly then you can't decide who answers it next, and whoever gets the correct answer will then gain control of the board until all of the rounds are over.

Puzzle Addict[]

Hosted by Tom Wordsworth, this is a game that's centered on a giant crossword puzzle. The single-player mode has you concentrating on the crossword while multiplayer gives each player a chance to solve a puzzle. For bonus points, the game throws in mini versions of sudoku, word search, and shuffle word, where words are split into pieces and jumbled together.

Brain Strain![]

Hosted by Professor Plank, games are randomly chosen and the selected player must go through some challenges that require some thought. Similar to the likes of Brain Challenge and Big Brain Academy, some examples of the puzzles include: jigsaw puzzles, memory tests, silhouette matching, and simple math problems.

Technical Difficulties[]
