Card Sharks, a remake of the classic '70s game show, is a game where one turn of a playing card can make you a winner or a loser! The road to glory and riches begins with two players who face off in a head-to-head elimination game with the goal of one player making it to the grand prize winning deck. The anticipation builds as each contestant has to decide if the odds are worth the risk of losing it all and making it to the big game. Ultimately, players can either take their earned cash and quit or continue betting with the hope of reaching the top for a chance to take home a life-changing cash prize.

As before, two contestants answer survey questions with the correct contestant playing a line of playing cards, predicting whether the next card in line is higher or lower in face value. In this edition, each contestant has ten cards to run and up to five survey questions are played.

The winner is staked to $10,000 in the Money Cards, with oversized poker chips representing the stake. The contestant must run seven cards (with the option to quit at any time and leave with what they've won), making wagers on each for the chance to win up to $500,000. Unlike previous editions of the show, the line of cards run consecutively from left to right. The contestant may make one change of a card during play.

The theme music is a reorchestration of the 1978 theme, which was previously the theme for Goodson-Todman's Double Dare in 1976.
