Added DiffLines:

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: While the current apps available in the UK (the ''Classic'' app, offering gameplay like that of the show, and ''Quest'', where the players controls Mr. Chips in a more ''VideoGame/CandyCrushSaga''-type game) are pretty good, the same can't be said of the board game adaptations- which the show really wasn't meant for.

* HilariousInHindsight: The original US version was replaced early in 1986 by ''Perfect Match'', one of the many relationship-based "game" shows during the era. In 1995, original host Art James showed up as a (fictional) game show host in ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'', where he was the host of ripoff of ''Series/TheDatingGame''.

* ReplacementScrappy: Nick Weir and Mark Curry. While good hosts in their own right, they pretty much had no chance when following the legendary Roy Walker.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The final season, with new host Curry, marked a move from the show's established weekly slot on ITV to the network's daytime lineup. Moving from weekly primetime to daily daytime meant the stakes were cheaper. ''Much'' cheaper.
