Draw It!

Win, Lose or Draw is a British television game show that aired for nine series in the ITV daytime schedule from 1990 to 1998, produced by Scottish Television. The game was based on an American television game show of the same name.

Format[edit]

Win, Lose or Draw was essentially based on the board game Pictionary. There were two teams, each composed of two celebrities and one non-celebrity. Three women played against three men. The teams took turns guessing a phrase, title, or thing that one teammate was drawing on a large pad of paper with markers. There's no talking by the one who was drawing, nor inscription of letters, numbers, or symbols. However, if a team mentioned a word that was part of the answer, the player at the sketchpad could write it.

A "late" edition of the show hosted by Liza Tarbuck was broadcast in 2004, guests usually had alcoholic drinks on hand throughout the recording and due to its late night timeslot there was little censorship of swearing and the game rules were frequently bent, if not broken.
