Default would a revival of Concentration work in the 21st Century?

it's been 21 years since (Classic) Concentration went of the air in 1991 in case you don't not what Concentration is two contestants are showned a board of basically 25 squares (30 in the original series) and the have to call out two different numbered Squares to match a prizes from the board if it did match then that prizes goes to their column and in order to claim their prizes they have to solve a rebus puzzles in which it involves a person, place,phrase, thing, etc. but if it didn't match then their opponent would take a shot at it the first to win the best two out of three matches win the game and goes to the bonus round where their showned a board of 15 cars but they'll have only 35 seconds to match 7 out of 8 cars (the 8th car was a decoy BTW) if he/she can do that successfully wihtin the time limit then the last car that he/she match then he/she keeps no matter what.

so i got to ask you folks does Concentration need to be revived? yes or no

I think Concentration deserves to be revived sometime in the 21st century. It's a classic game show format that has been dormant for years and with the right retooling, it can be a viable addition to any network's lineup.

Yes.I think it should be revived.If done correctly,with the same format as the original classic 1958-1973 NBC series,whoever put ut out in syndication(nerworks wouldn't want it),and not updated at all.would have a smash hit on their hands.
