What's the Good Word? was a Canadian word-based game show that aired on that country's CTV network as a daily daytime series from 1972–1976. The host was John Barton. The show was shot at the CTV studios in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Rules[edit]

Three teams of two players each competed over guessing the key word with a list of related clues. Play began with an introductory clue. For example, a set might begin with "This can either be a friend to man or an enemy." Clues would then be read while the timer clicked down. Clues for this example set might be: WILD, RED, FLASH, GUN, ANTS, SIDE, TRUCK, HYDRANT, and finally FIGHTER. The good word, of course, is FIRE.
