So you've just debuted a brand new [[GameShows game show]], and now you need to tell the audience how the game is played. If the host explains these rules exactly the same way, day after day, until it reaches the point where fans of the show can practically recite from memory what he's about to say, your explanation has just become a Rules Spiel.

* First three seasons of Chuck Woolery's {{Lingo}}: ''"Here's how we play ''Lingo'': The team in control gets up to five chances to guess a mystery word. We start with the first letter of the word. Players take turns making guesses and our board will indicate whether a letter is correct and it's in the right place. A correct answer is worth 25 points. But at if any time you give us a word that doesn't fit, isn't a real word, or you take too long, control passes to the next team and they have a chance to win those points. Now, the team with the correct guess gets to draw two Lingo balls with corresponding numbers to their own Lingo board. All you have to do is try to do is complete a row of numbers, either five across, up and down, or diagonally. Each Lingo is worth 50 points and a free letter during Bonus Lingo."''

*** Bill Cullen repeated the rules for his version on each nighttime show: ''We put the merchandise up for bids, and you bid on it. Go as high as you like, stop whenever you like; it goes to the one who bids highest to the actual retail price without going over, and the big winner comes back next week to take on three new challengers.''
*** The home sweepstakes on Cullen's show had a standard spiel when the third version of it became the standard: ''Write your name, along with a residence address and your estimate on [the prizes] on a postcard and mail it to [theme name of] Sweepstakes, The Price Is Right, post office box xxx, New York City, N.Y., 100xx.

If none of the five cards has the exact price, then the winner will be the first card whose estimate is closest to the actual retail price without going over.

Look at everyone at home and go Bleugh! Everyone at home look at them and go Bleugh!"
