An episode of Couch Potatoes, from Game Show Week, with All in the Family vs. Filthy Rich:
The 3rd season premiere of Hollywood Squares from 1988:
An episode of Sale of the Century, which is the Thursday episode of the End of Summer Bash from 1988:
Thanks everybody for these links...but wouldn't be surprised some day if some of these were taken down due to "copyright" or "ownership" issues.
The May 7, 1980, episode of High Rollers, in its entirety. (The first segment is already posted. This is the only episode in the trading circuit I haven't yet seen in its entirety.)
If you're going that way, how about the 19 June episode (the day before the infamous series finale), if for no other reason than we could finally lay to rest the controversy about the $10,000 Fish Bowl... was it a legitimate antique or a fishbowl of cash?

▲ Nope, never on GSN. USA showed the Wink Martindale version back in the early '90s, but that's about it.
Have I got a treat for you: An episode of Second Chance, the predecessor to Press Your Luck, but from the actual series, from 1977:

Wow, one of the Holy Grails of our fandom. Great find, thanks!
And it FINALLY settles a few questions about this show, including the presence of an Eggcrate display on the board for the second round.
They had popup devils, just like the Whammies on Press Your Luck.
Here's some more game shows for your enjoyment.

An episode of Classic Concentration from November 1987:
The first 8 minutes of an episode of Fandango from 1988:
I would very much like to see the 1974-75 versions of Now You See It. Jack Narz was one of my favorite hosts.
Here's a YouTube find:
Scott Hostetler, the man immortalized in Press Your Luck's opening highlight reels and who returned during the first season of Whammy!, and who was just seen on The Price is Right about a month or so back, also made an appearance on the much-maligned Michael Burger version of Match Game back in 1998. How'd he do? See for yourself.
