GameplayEdit

The game portion of The Jan Murray Show was “Charge Account”. A packet of 16 letters was selected and mixed in a cylinder and then called out one at a time. Each of two contestants had a square gameboard divided into 16 squares (four rows of four blank columns). As the letters were called off, each contestant put them in a square in a manner figured to make the most three-letter and four-letter words. Contestants received $25 for each four-letter word they created and $10 for each three-letter word. The player with the most money won the game and used his or her winnings to buy prizes. Prior to the game, a series of prizes was shown which they could buy with their winnings.

MerchandiseEdit

A board game was released as Charge Account: Jan Murray's TV word game by Lowell in 1961.
