  • Working Title: The show was originally piloted under the title Identity Crisis—the name of the board game on which the pilots were based. Although a description of the board game itself implies that the original version also had additional components ("crisis" cards that let the other team guess, and a round involving one-word clues from the same names used in the start of the game), they were not present in the actual series — suggesting that it had been retooled into a semi-revival of You Don't Say! somewhere down the line.
