The Red Green Wiki

The Possum Lodge Word Game also called "Two on a Match" is a recurring segment on The Red Green Show. Based upon the television game show, Password, one character has 30 seconds to get the contestant to say a word by giving him short clues.

The contestants' guesses are based on their own personality and experiences, and as a result they usually only stumble across the right word accidentally while saying something completely unrelated. In some cases, up to Season 8, they don't get the word at all.

The Possum Lodge Word Game was introduced in Season 5 and ran through to the end of the series.

Harold Green served as host for the show until Season 9, when he left for a job in Port Asbestos. Following this, different Lodge members rotated in and out to serve as new hosts, most frequently Winston Rothschild and Mike Hamar.

Production notes[]

Beginning in the sixth season, Harold (and later other characters) began to say the word out loud, in addition to showing it to the audience. Along with this, the "contestant" would plug their ears or otherwise not listen to the word while it was being spoken (except for one episode in which Mike tries to cheat). According to RedgreenJrTV, this change was made specifically in response to feedback from a blind viewer who said she didn't know what the word was until the punchline.
