CSS Results for September 18
« on: September 18, 2006, 02:12:48 PM »
What a way to begin the 35th season of TPiR! A DSW on stage worth $122,828, breaking the daytime record for winnings. Most Expensive played for three cars, and won! Double Prices for a boat (take note of that price, everyone, $18,994 may be useful for future CSS playings).

Unfortunately, CSS didn't get off to such a rip-roaring start. Including the Stage Player, there were 14 overbids to only 10 people getting points. Most of these were due to a new car being offered, a Saturn SKY that wasn't nearly as expensive as some people thought it was. Three more overbids were just pushing it a bit too far with the Viper showcase, which didn't actually break $90K. Interestingly, nobody overbid on BOTH showcases.

Today's winner starts off the season with a bang, and... er... well... it's me. :-D

PGS25 gets a boatload of money for besting my Viper bid by a few hundred dollars, and Joe_Mello Plinko-Doubled (on top of coming in second) and gets a boatload of points, though no money.

Oh yes, and as a surprise too, I doubled the points today to celebrate the start of the season!!

Man, if I had known what the heck a Saturn Sky was, I would've had an awesome performance. I did pretty good on the Viper.

Overbid in CSS for Season 35......check.
Willy of the Century in CSS.......check.

Wow....as I was telling Tom over AIM earlier......that Saturn Sky SC was an FRCarS.  I thought that thing would be super expensive, not knowing that the 2nd SC would bring a Viper (and DSW) with it.

Congrats to all who did well today.  Here's to non-overbids tomorrow!  :-)

Oh so close to winning the money for the Sky showcase, but at least reading car magazines paid off once.  Well, you wouldn't know it seeing my bid on the Viper, but it's always nice to get points, especially when they're suprisingly doubled.

I had never even heard of a Saturn Sky until today, so I'm not surprised that I overbid that one.  As for going under $80K on the Viper SC, let's just say the price of a Viper slipped my mind this morning...
Yes, I'm still around. :P

Yeah, I decided to be a bit evil and guess $11,501 for the Doubler.  At least we all learned something.

And I thought I had the day to end all days here, instead I'm a minigame short of having 0 to show for it.

I think it's all downhill for me now.
