Prime Games was a live Interactive television show produced by Game Show Network, in the mid-1990s. The show was hosted by Peter Tomarken, and eventually joined by Marianne Curan as the co-host. The format was similar to GSN Live, with the evening's live interactive segments aired in between classic game shows. This, along with Club AM/Late Night Games, was one of GSN's flagship shows.
Decades was played with two players, each playing one at a time. Each player had 30 seconds to get the most correct answers. The host will read a question and the three possible decades. Using their touch-tone phone, the player(s) at home will press the button on their phones' keypad corresponding to the decade. The player with the most points wins. After Prime Games was cancelled, this segment was spun off into its own series, Super Decades.
Race for the Numbers
Race for the Numbers was also played with two players, each playing one at a time. Each player had 30 seconds to get the most answers. The host will read a question and the three possible choices (ex: 5, 6, or 7). Using their touch-tone phone, the player(s) at home will press the button on their phones' keypad. Some questions have 2 digits answers (ex: 12, 15, or 18), in that case the player(s) at home press the last digit of the answer on their phones' keypad (ex: 2, 5, 8). The player with most points wins. Following the cancellation of Prime Games, this segment was carried over to GSN's original series Game TV.
