Welcome to the main page of the Television Game Shows WikiProject. This project was launched on July 11, 2006. Currently, we have 17 active members. WikiProject Television Game Shows was formed to foster the creation, expansion and improvement of television game show-related articles. These articles also include gameplay information, video games based the shows, biographies, and more. Additionally, the WikiProject works to ensure all the related articles conform to our official policies and guidelines. To participate, simply sign your name in the participants section.


Seeing as game shows cover multiple branches of entertainment, the WikiProject is therefore a sub-project of numerous collaborations:

  • In the instance that an article needs to be disambiguated because another article exists with the same name (as in the case of Duel), the article title should have (game show) added to it.
    • If it is the case that it is a game show that has versions in multiple country, then the title should be Game show title (country name (UK, U.S. abbreviated) game show).



  1. In the future, create a possible subproject on The Price Is Right (U.S. game show)


  1. Currently organize the project
  2. Assess all unassessed articles
  3. Add the Game Show Project banner to every game show related article.
