"Win, Lose or Draw" was created by actor Burt Reynolds ("Smokey And the Bandit", "The Cannonball Run", etc.) and long-time game show host Bert Convy ("Tattletales" and "Super Password"). The series was basically an adaption of the old party game Charades, and had two teams of three players each, with two celebrities and a contestant on each team. The players had one minute (60 seconds) to give clues to a secret phrase by sketching on a large tablet, without using letters, numbers or verbal clues. If the other team member guessed correctly, the contestant received a cash prize. If not, the other team was allowed to guess.
