Coinciding with the NCAA’s March Madness tournament – BUZZR brings you the most competitive bracket in game show history – the Card Sharks “Tournabout Tournament” in which famed retro game show hosts compete for a chance to win money for their favorite charities of choice!
Card Sharks has remained one of America’s most cherished game shows throughout the decades. Having first premiered in 1978, the show pitted contestants against one another to complete a block of five playing cards by trying to predict whether the next card will be higher or lower than the preceding one after answering questions posed by host, Jim Perry.
Monday, March 12th through Saturday, March 31st, BUZZR fans will get to watch select 1980’s episodes featuring such show legendary hosts as Gene Rayburn (Match Game), Alex Trebek (High Rollers), and Tom Kennedy (Name That Tune) to name a few.
