It's Your Move
It's Your Move was played before a live studio audience, and spiced the familiar game of charades by adding a time factor, in auction form. The two competing teams bid for the opportunity to enact - and, hopefully, to guess - an unknown phrase. The team offering the lower bid was awarded the floor, and one member acted out the charade while the other team member tried to solve it within the time put forth in the initial bid. If the team failed, the prize was awarded to the opponent. The winning team retained its championship until defeated. However, champions were limited to a ten-game tenure.
Paul Hanover hosted a weekday afternoon edition which debuted September 14, 1964 on CTV and a weekly nighttime edition which debuted October 19, 1964.
Sidney M. Cohen re-developed the series with creators Art Baer and Ben Joelson and the show was revived in 1974, produced again in Montreal. The new series was emceed by George Balcan for 1 season before Paul Hanover's return as host. The announcer, as for many CFCF shows, was Nick Hollinrake.
In this episode, George Balcan is the host as current champions Louis Kohn and Lily Yesovitch face off against newcomers Maureen Katz and John Wildeman.
