How much of the Narz/Wood BTC still exists? Thatís the main issue.

AFAIK the 1969-1970 season is probably gone, but 1970-1974 is intact, and has been on GSN before.

GSN didn't show the final three months and they skipped a whopping six episodes, three from April, and three from May.

And I'm sure some people are still mourning that oh-so-tragic loss.

If they still exist, 70s Crosswits and Dealer's Choice would be nice to see.  And more recently, returning The Challengers, Top Card, Trump Card, Caesars Challenge, and Scattergories for at least brief runs--especially since I'm sure neither's been seen since their original airings (or, in CC's case, since its USA run ended).

AFAIK Dealer's Choice was completely wiped by 1976 except for one or two episodes. Our good friend Wikipedia says that the 1975 version of Crosswits is fully intact. I'm guessing that the 90s series you mentioned are available because wiping was gone by then.
I walk into Barker's Bargain Bar to find some deals. I notice the men's department and encounter some Temptation. I go over and look at some t-shirts trying to figure out which one is 1/2 Off. One shirt has Five Price Tags on it for some reason so I must go to the price scanner to find out which is the One Right Price. Next I go over to the slacks and see a sign, "2 for the Price of 1." I figure the Clearance Sale price is around $40 each. Seeing that it's a good deal, I Take Two. Time is running short, so I hurry over to the shoes department to see if I can Pick a Pair for my meeting tomorrow. I find the perfect shoes, hurry back to the Check-Out and hand the clothes to the clerk so she can ring them up. She tells me the Actual Retail Price for all the items, and I discover...

THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

Have a nice day.

Bit of a longshot, but the short-lived 1985 John Davidson show Time Machine.

That may no longer exist.

With the CRTCís strict rules on cable channels, plus a Canadian game show channel being available, it is unlikely. The only real way to get Buzzr (other than perhaps online) is to move to a city near the range of a US station and pick it up over the air. Windsor, ON or perhaps Niagara Falls are really the only places.

Belleville and Trenton on the north Shore of Lake Ontario are well within range of television from Rochester, New York.

I've seen some episodes of Time Machine on Youtube.  I would like to see Scattergories and Caesar's Challenge on Buzzr.

I'm fairly certain that Dealer's Choice is wiped, unfortunately. That show had a hell of a great theme, though.

I'm also fairly certain that the '70s Crosswits is in fact intact. On the Ralph Edwards Productions webpage, there is a montage of clips from the show, and they are all master quality and aren't taken from any of the circulating episodes.
Yes, I still use VHS. But I've switched to recording the show in HD with a capture card.

It turns out I've been missing a lot over the years.

Yes, those are the ones Iím talking about. The ones that aired from about June to September 26, 1986. Some of the episodes are on YouTube, but theyíre not in the best quality.

Precisely the one I'm hoping for too!

Realistically, I'd love to see Match Game '90, Narz Concentration, or Beat The Clock '02. Less realistically, Scrabble, Scattergories, Give-N-Take, or Catch Phrase.

(Dealer's Choice would be amazing too, if it exists.)

A shame if Dealer's Choice was wiped. That same production company gave us The Diamond Head Game and that mess unfortunately survived.

Would love to see the 70s Cross-Wits. Jack Clark was one of the few people I though was equally good as a host AND and an announcer. Some were better at announcing (Gene Wood, Jack Narz, Johnny Gilbert) while some were too good as hosts to be announcing (Wink Martindale, Regis Philbin, Marc Summers).

EDIT: I actually like Marc Summers in his current role as announcer/co-host of the new Double Dare. I was referring to when he was strictly an announcer his talents were being wasted.
