1961-62 ABC daytime Game Show from Jerry Hammer Productions (Hammer created the follow-the-dots drawings for the rigged Dotto).Two contestants, usually female, faced their respective game boards which, when opened, revealed a drawing. The objective was to find a hidden object within the drawing and successfully trace its outline. In order to do so, the players had to answer true-or-false questions and score points based on a timer clicking down from 10. A correct answer removed part of the picture (the camouflage) and the player had 10 seconds to find the object and trace its outline with a long stick. For each pass or mistraced picture, the value of the board (which began at 200 points) was reduced by 10 points. Once a player reached 30 points, she was shown a picture of the object.. The winner received a prize package based on her total score, and the higher scorer of the day played the bonus round.The show was a modest success for ABC, and was revamped by Chuck Barris in 1980 for a few months in syndication. The game was now played for cash, and three games were played in each show; tracing the front-game picture won that money and led to the bonus game.A Camouflage completely unrelated to these formats aired on GSN in 2007, where the object was to find words within words.
