The Cross-Wits | 1975
Two three-member teams compete, each composed of two celebrities and one non-celebrity captain. A large crossword board containing the names of persons, places, or things is revealed. One player selects a position (e.g. one across) for which the host reads a corresponding clue.
If the correct answer is given, the word appears on the board and the team scores ten points for each filled space. Failure to guess a clue ends that team's turn at play; their opponents then receive a chance. The team that is first to identify the puzzle is the winner and the non-celebrity player receives merchandise prizes.
