Super Password aired on NBC from September 24, 1984 until March 24, 1989. It was hosted by Bert Convy, who appeared as a panelist on Password Plus. It is a revival of Password Plus, but the "no opposites" rule is gone. During its entire run, it aired in the noon timeslot, where it was frequently preempted for local news.
Like Password Plus, contestants & celebrities solved puzzles with five clues each. They earned a chance to solve the puzzle by playing Password, and the passwords were the clues to the puzzles.
A password was given to the clue givers, and they each had two chances to get their partners to say the word. Each time the guesser said the password, the password became a clue and it appeared on a puzzle board; plus the guesser had a chance to solve the puzzle. If the password was given away by the clue giver, the right to solve the puzzle automatically went to the opposing guesser. Failure to solve the puzzle meant that another password/clue was played. If the guesser failed to solve the puzzle after five clues, the clue giver helped out by guessing the puzzle. But if the first team missed the puzzle, the opposing team took a chance to solve the puzzle. The first team to solve the puzzle won money, but if the puzzle was missed entirely, another puzzle was played for the same amount. The first round was worth $100 and each new round was worth that much more than the previous.
