Is there a reason you never include details about prizes?  Like brand names?

I bet Steve will want to know, so here they are:

What set was used?  
Did Grocery Game have its sign yet?
What color was Grocery Game's cash register?
What color was the show logo's dollar sign?

You missed the most important one, Corey! ;-)

Was there a logo on Range Game?

(And for that matter, was Range Game's base red or green?)

Oops!  I'm sorry!  That's got to be annoying when it happens...I know it drives me crazy when people call me "Steven."

No, it doesn't bother me.  You oughta look at my last name, "McGhehey".  Just try pronouncing it!  :-o

Speaking of last names, I sure don't mind recaps that include them.

Interesting how all three games in the show had the word "game" in their titles.

Given that eight of the 17 or 18 games being played at the time had names that ended with "Game"...no, it's really not.

And Bob would often refer to them all by "game" (like "Any Number Game").

Nowadays, it is nearly impossible to have all six games have "game" in their title with 70+ active games.

The Range Game base was red
The dollar sign in the logo is yellow
The show used the brown set
None of the games had any signs
The Grocery Game cash register is blue.
