Two contestants, each accompanied by a "second" (a friend, relative or spouse), competed in this life-sized board game. The game itself was laid out in three streets, each described later: Money Street, Bridge Street and Magic Mile. The contestant's second rolled a "chuck-a-luck" cage containing a die; Williams, the "town crier," called out each move. On the Money Street, contestants won cash by landing on ordinary spaces and answering a question; other spaces included "Lose-A-Turn," "Free Turn," "Go to Jail" (the contestant was escorted to an on-stage jail and had to answer a question correctly to get out) and "Do it Yourself" (where successfully completing a stunt won the player a prize worth up to $150).

it was a great show
26 October 2008 | by petersj-2See all my reviews

Here in Australia it was a great hit. Firstly it was with adults (much funnier) but later with kids. I still recall the theme songs. It was compered by Danny Web and hostess Liz Harris. Harris was a joy and a great talent. She married Austrtalian iconic actor Leonard Teale. She was also Lisa in the classic kids show Adventure Island.The voice guy was Chris Christenson who died during the series. It was fun reading the previous post memories of this delightful show. I wonder if it would work today? Come ride with us on the village bus it takes all shapes and sizes

ah sweet memories.
