The USENET newsgroup alt.tv.game-shows (abbreviated ATGS) was a discussion place for game shows. The group began significant activity in 1994.
The group was a popular discussion forum for game shows through the late 1990s and early 2000s. However, due to an increase in spam (and trolling, for that matter), Matt Ottinger created the moderated Invision Game Show Forum in mid 2003.
Notable ATGS happenings Edit
- Robair's Annual Game Show Awards began at the end of 1994.
- Net games were hosted on ATGS for much of the 1990s.
- Tim Connolly's annual Game Show Tournament began in 1999. It ran on ATGS until 2002.
