A Fal (Hungarian for The Wall) is a game show broadcast on Hungarian television station RTL Klub. It is affiliated with the U.S. game show The Wall .

The eponymous wall is a five-story-tall pegboard, similar to a pachinko game or bean machine; it also is similar to the Plinko board used for that pricing game of the same name on The Price Is Right . The bottom of the board is divided into 15 slots marked with various Hungarian forint amounts, some of which increase as the game progresses. Seven numbered "drop zones" are centered at the top of the board (above the center seven slots), from which balls can be dropped into play.

A team of two contestants plays each game, with a potential top prize of 100,000,000 Ft. Green balls dropped on the board will add to the team's bank, while red balls dropped on the board will subtract from it. Throughout the game, the bank has a floor of 0 Ft.

Deal or No Deal is the name of several closely related television game shows, the first of which was the Dutch Miljoenenjacht produced by French content production company Banijay. The centerpiece of this format is the final round which is played with up to 26 cases, each containing randomly assigned sums of money. After the player for the case game is determined, this contender claims one case or a box at the start of the game, without its contents being revealed. The contestant then chooses the other cases or boxes, one at a time, to be immediately opened and removed from play. Throughout the game, the player is offered an amount of money or prizes to quit, being asked the titular question, "Deal or no deal?" If the contestant rejects every deal and eliminates all the other cases or boxes, the player keeps the money that was in the original case or box. Thus, the contestant "wins" depending on whether the player should have taken one of the deals or should have held onto the original case or box until the very end.
