About This Quiz

Would you be a big winner on "The $100,000 Pyramid"? This game show series has been on television in all sorts of different ways for years now, the first one was in 1973, and was called "The $20,000 Pyramid." Talk about inflation! Don't get us wrong, ten grand would be pretty cool, but it isn't as exciting as it once was. The point of the show is to play a word association game and attempt to win a cash prize, and usually, a celebrity is paired with a contestant. Contestants attempt to guess a series of words or phrases based on descriptions given to them by their teammates.

To succeed on this show, you need to be able to think quickly on your feet, you need to have a good vocabulary, you need to be a good communicator, and you need to be a team player. I mean, it isn't going to help if you start yelling at Lance Bass or Billy Crystal, now is it: they're doing their best!   We think you have what it takes. If you think you're up for the challenge, then consider this quiz. You just might be a lock for the winner's circle. What are "Signs you're an awesome pyramid player?" Just don't pass. We got this.
