I Dug WeDigTV.com

There are plenty of places to play browser-based games to kill time. Not many of them are faithful adaptations of popular game shows. WeDigTV went further: they used licensed formats, footage, and personnel from the original shows.

WeDigTV offered these games (see rules) for free play or for prizes:

  • The Price Is Right
  • Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?
  • Deal or No Deal
  • Blockbusters
  • Bullseye
  • Family Fortunes (Family Feud)
  • Catch Phrase
  • Countdown

I recall the games having some neat twists to the gameplay. For example, on Deal or No Deal, the player had to click on a certain area when falling hearts aligned properly. Doing well at it meant the Banker would have a harder read on the player. The player would then get more favorable offers.

Bullseye, a game show centered on darts:

The only problem I had with WeDigTV was that it was less responsive after the dark redesign and the game roster expansion. Also, there were ad breaks, but they consisted of real commercials with a brief interactive element.

WeDigTV provided some of the funnest fake game show experiences. The site was very cool for me and other Anglophile game show lovers. Unfortunately, when I visit the site today, I was greeted by a login prompt that only the invited can access.

These guys had so much potential and I wanted to see what they could do with American formats. Maybe one day…
