"Two-in-one" pricing games
« on: October 11, 2006, 07:47:59 AM »
Which pricing games, would you happen to know, use smaller-scale versions of other games in their gameplay (these, I will refer to as "2-in-1" pricing games, because they use smaller-scale versions of other games)? As far as I know, the "2-in-1" games include "Stack The Deck" (One Right Price in the grocery portion), "Secret X" (Double Prices), and "Pathfinder" (ditto).

Well, outside the obvious GP/SP subgames...I'd say Golden Road contains Pick-A-Number.  (The second prize, pick one number from three, is also generally of the level that a Pick-A-Number prize would be of.)

By that logic, you could say that Grand Game (sort of) contains Danger Price in it.

This is kind of a stretch, but you could say Master Key has a hint of Pushover in it.

No, Master Key's pricing portion falls more along the lines of Squeeze Play.

Now that I think of it -- and this may be a stretch, too, but here goes -- you could probably say the pricing portion of "Joker" is kind of like "Coming or Going" (is that SP $63 or $36?) or "Side by Side" (the two digits in the SP's price belong side by side...which way?).
