Site news

UKGameshows Twitter Feed
We've given a lot of thought to how best to inform our loyal readers of updates to UKGameshows.com, and concluded that what would work would be to direct you to a third-party site to read posts so restricted in length that conveying any sort of useful information becomes almost impossible. So if you'd like to know what's new and improved, take a look at our brand new Twitter feed.

Greatest Game Shows

The 100 Most Popular Game Shows
One question you almost certainly haven't been asking yourself is "What are the 100 most popular articles on this site?". Well, tough, because we have and you can see the result of our Greatest Game Shows - it lists stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to surprises such as Kate Thornton's Dishes. Who knew?

Going for Gold

While UKGameshows.com is (even if we say so ourselves) the most comprehensive guide to the genre anywhere on - or off - the web, with over 2100 programmes already in our database it is inevitable that even we're stumped sometimes. So we're asking for your help. A number of our "most wanted" shows are now listed here and a team of volunteers is standing by, waiting to add your contributions to our compendium of game show knowledge. Go on, help us out. It's what Mumsy would want.
