In the 1960s, television was still relatively new, and there wasn’t much in the way of programming. The concept of games on television began in the 1950s, so many of the oldesst game shows aired during the '60s as well. The Price Is Right, Truth or Consequences, Queen for a Day, and Concentration had all aired in the '50s and '60s. This list of the best 1960s game shows includes shows that aired between 1960 and 1969 and has been ranked by your votes.
