"Two contestants play Tic-Tac-Toe to win money and prizes," a synopsis said.

"The 'board' for the game is a vertical stack of open-faced cubes, each occupied by a celebrity seated at a desk and facing the contestants. The celebrities are asked questions and the contestants judge the legitimacy of their answers to win the game."

The show dates back to 1965 and last aired in 2004.

Past "center square" celebrities have included Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Rivers, Martin Mull and Paul Lynde.
