8 Game Shows 80s Kids Wanted To Be On!

We love game shows! The game shows we watched as kids were the best. The 80s and early 90s were the golden era for TV game shows and we couldn’t get enough of them.

Here are 8 of the best game shows from back in the day.

 1. The Adventure Game

Originally aired on the BBC from 1980, The Adventure Game was aimed at kids but the adults loved it too! It was set on the planet Arg where 2 celebrities and a non celeb would take part in several diferent tasks. It had a very strong Dungeons and Dragons feel to it.

2. Gladiators

Awwwooooooga! Hosted by John Fashanu and Ulrika Johnson, The Glasiators first aired on ITV in 1992. It was an instant success with the Gladiators becoming household names. Manya teenage boy, including me had a crush on Jet! Saturday Night TV at it’s best.

 

3. Blockbusters
