Poll of the Year 2012

Poll of the Year 2012
Unbelieveably despite wind, rain and financial crashes the world did not end in 2012. But something the Mayans did predict correctly is that once again UKGameshows.com and Bother's Bar would be doing another of its polls of the year just gone. What new shows did you like? Which ones weren't you so fond of? We wanted to know. The results are in! Thanks very much to everyone who voted, we had a record number of ballots.

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?

Wall of Fame

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.
