It's Your Move is a Canadian game show which aired on CTV.

Filmed at the studios of Montreal CTV affiliate CFCF-TV by that station's production unit Champlain Productions, this series had two teams of two players bid on which team could act out a charade within a set time frame, with the team making the lower bid being selected to act out their charade and try to guess it within their chosen time. The team that successfully guessed their charade received a point (which they would also get if the opposing team failed to guess their charade). The team that obtained three points at the end of a game won that game and a prize for the team (either a piece of merchandise, a cash prize or dinner for two), and two games won by the team (out of three games per match) won that team the match. Five-time champions were awarded a grand prize, such as a trip for two, after which they retired as champions.

It's Your Move was produced in two separate runs, with the first aired from 1964 to 1967 with Paul Hanover as the original host, followed by a revival from 1974 to 1979, with George Balcan hosting the first season of the revival before Hanover returned to host the rest of the run. After the show ended its CTV run, the network sold it into syndicated repeats on local stations.
