GSN ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES AND EPISODE ACQUISITIONS, INCLUDING CLASSIC GAME SHOW "SALE OF THE CENTURY," WHICH MAKES ITS GSN DEBUT ON APRIL 1, 2013

Network Also Acquires New Episodes of PRESS YOUR LUCK to Launch April 1 and Refreshes Episode Selections for SUPER PASSWORD, PASSWORD PLUS and MATCH GAME

Santa Monica, CA - March 20, 2013 - GSN announced today a host of new acquisitions of classic game shows and episodes, including the GSN premiere of SALE OF THE CENTURY, featuring 65 episodes that originally aired on NBC in 1988-89 with host Jim Perry. In addition, the network will debut 57 new-to-GSN episodes of PRESS YOUR LUCK from 1983-84 with host Peter Tomarken. SALE OF THE CENTURY and the new episodes of PRESS YOUR LUCK will premiere on GSN on April 1, 2013. New episodes of PRESS YOUR LUCK will premiere at 9:00am ET and SALE OF THE CENTURY will premiere at 9:30am ET.

GSN is also refreshing its episode selection on SUPER PASSWORD and PASSWORD PLUS, reintroducing classic episodes that have not aired in three years: 150 episodes of SUPER PASSWORD from 1986-87 featuring host Bert Convy and 66 episodes of PASSWORD PLUS from 1981-82 with host Tom Kennedy. And MATCH GAME fans will be excited to rediscover episodes from 1975-77 featuring legendary host Gene Rayburn and the show's inimitable celebrity panel.

On SALE OF THE CENTURY, contestants start with $20 and earn more money with each correct answer to general trivia questions. Throughout the game, the play is stopped for an "Instant Bargain," when a contestant has the opportunity to use their money to buy a great prize at a heavily discounted price. During the "Fame Game" round, Perry offers clues to the identity of a famous person; the first contestant with the right answer wins a shot at the Fame Game board, behind which are hidden prizes or Money Cards. Champions also play an end game for escalating cash prizes, with continuing winners playing for a total payoff of more than $100,000.

On PRESS YOUR LUCK, contestants collect "spins" by answering trivia questions, and then use the spins on an 18-space game board to win cash and prizes. But if a contestant lands on a "Whammy" space, featuring a red cartoon creature wearing a cape, the contestant loses all their money to the Whammy.

On SUPER PASSWORD and PASSWORD PLUS, celebrity guests, paired off with contestants, are given a secret password. By giving clues and hints, they try to help the contestant guess the password and use them to solve puzzles, with the first one to do so winning cash and prizes. Winners then have the chance to play a 60-second end game for escalating jackpots as high as $50,000.

On MATCH GAME, contestants attempt to match celebrities' answers to fill-in-the-blank questions-often with hilarious and bawdy results. Host Gene Rayburn wrangled a panel of celebrities who often included Charles Nelson Reilly, Richard Dawson, and Brett Somers.
