Quick as a Flash was a radio (later TV) game show where contestants have to solve mysteries.
Six contestants from the studio audience competed for cash and other prizes. Clues were presented in the form of dramatic sketches covering such subjects as current events, movies, books and historical situations. With a buzzer, a contestant could interrupt at any time to submit an answer. Each celebrity could answer once per subject and their partners were each allowed two guesses.
A fan-made creation of the show was created in 2014 based on the show's premise using The Sims 2 PC game. It runs for 22 minutes and uses incidental music that reflects the show's era. The show can be seen here.
