The original Password game show, based on the century-old parlor game of the same name, ran for six years, from 1961 to 1967. Then again from 1971 to 1975, 1979 to 1982, and 1984 to 1989. Several board games have also been produced since the 1960s.

This weekend, the game show returns as Million Dollar Password, to be hosted by Regis Philbin.

Password is still one of my favorite party games.
