It seems also that the contestants will have to guess more cards correctly to win a game (5 on the originals, 7 or 8 here).
10, actually. Not sure if they're all visible in that shot, though.

Not entirely, no.

That said, why so many now?

^It's been mentioned that the new CS maingame will be just one game with five questions (the fifth being sudden death), and whoever wins that game goes on to the Money Cards bonus round.

That's an entirely new way to play-- I've been always used to the best-of-3 to the Money Cards, but this is an entirely new wrinkle that I don't think I've seen before; it might mean seeing the Money Cards a lot more in each show!

Somehow I'm expecting tons and tons of padding. I think they're doing this to prevent any "straddling" games, and likely only have the budget to do two games per show (or, more precisely, one game per half-hour, if they're doing it the same as the rest of the primetime shows are)

Great point! It might actually end up being that way. The best way to find out is to wait for June.

The Money Cards will be different, too.  What we know is that the contestant is staked with $10,000 for winning the main game, and they face a board of 7 cards, rather than 8 in the Perry/Eubanks/Rafferty eras, so they're taking a page from the 2001 version.  Additionally, contestants will have money chips to bet with, like a real casino, instead of just naming an amount and calling higher/lower, so the presentation sounds neat.  Unlike previous versions, there will be no additional money given to the contestant at certain points, so there's no second chance for busting early in the game. 

The minimum bet is $1,000 per card except for the Big Bet at the end, where the contestant must bet at least half.  The "loss on a double" rule from most of the Perry era returns for this version, so contestants have to be more careful.  Also, if a contestant has a large bank they don't want to risk on the Big Bet, they can bail out on the second-to-last card with what they have.  A contestant can win as much as $640,000, assuming they bet all their money on each card and correctly call the next card as higher or lower. 

What's still unknown is if the contestant has the option to change their only the base card or any card during the Money Cards.  Apparently, a contestant is allowed to change one card, based on reports that have surfaced.

Buzzr revealed the following publicity photo of Joel with a hand of cards.  Perhaps the Money Cards board is behind him?

I was hoping that part wouldn't be there! I think that was the major downfall of the original NBC show.

I'm not surprised it's there.  With big money on the line, the risk of losing it all helps keep the budget in check by making contestants play conservatively.

Also, in addition to the money chips, apparently, there will be a button that contestants push to lock in their higher/lower decisions.  Again, with big money on the line, they want a "final answer" mechanism to hold a contestant to their choice.  This should also help pad out the show so there's no straddling.

It seems ABC has aired a promo that featured a glimpse of the new Card Sharks board.  Overall, I like the size of it, how they're using the 1978 logo's font for the contestant names, and that Joel appears to use a skinny mic like Jim Perry did in the original version.



Iím doubting it, but do you think they will use the original 1970s theme and gameplay music as well? Iíve always liked it. (Clap! Clap! Clap, clap, clap!) :)

From what I've heard, they're supposedly using an "updated" version of the 1978 theme.

Iím thinking that theyíre going with the Game$how Marathon dollar amounts AKA double the original amounts.

Is it just me or does that NOT look like Joel McHale?  Are they perhaps using the models to turn the cards?
