Card Sharks was a television game show that has appeared in several incarnations over the years, although the theme of the game remained the same.
The contestants were dealt five oversized playing cards at the start of the game and asked a question to see who would go first. The question was based on survey results and the first contestant (usually the retuning champion ) had to guess the amount of people that answered the question in the survey. Then the challenger would be able to decide if the actual result was higher or lower than the first contestant’s response. The winner would be able to reveal their cards. The first card would be turned over and the contestant would have to decide if the next card would be higher or lower than the card shown. If they were correct they would continue to the next card. An incorrect answer allowed the second contestant to reveal their cards. Play would continue until a contestant got through all five of their cards, winning the round.
