Any ideas on how it'll look and/or what other games will be getting updated?

A new paint job on some of the games might definitely be needed. Someone mentioned that Bonus Game looked like its paint was fading and needed dusting. I also think Bonus Game's current colors don't really fit in with the new set. As long as the colors change and not the physical look of the game, I'm happy. Hopefully, no major remodels of games.

Someone in the recap's for Wednesday's (6/2) show, said the game looks bad in HD. Eventhough HD started in Season 37, maybe they think it looks even worse now then before. Perhaps the paint job was just a way to fix the problem for the time being.

You know, I just checked the video feeds on CBS.com...and Bonus Game looks cleaner in HD than it does in SD.

I was surprised, too.

I hope they consider Pick A Pair for new paint colors. Ever since the new doors debuted in Season 36, the Pick A Pair set blends too much with the blue in Door #2.

Well we know check game might come back and ten chances will get a new paint job.  I heard on PIR.com that Kathy sayed they where think about maybe giving grand game a new paint job
That wasn't a showcase, that was an infomercial.

Let's clean this up a bit:

Well we know Check Game might come back, and Ten Chances will get a new paint job.  Kathy also said in a post on PiR.com that they were thinking about giving Grand Game a new paint job too.

I agree. Although, I do like the blue motif. So as of now, Ten Chances and Bonus Game are DEF getting updates. Grand Game is a maybe. Which others could use it?

Let's not be a grammar nazi. We aren't looking for perfection.

Anyway on said topic, I don't know if people would agree with me, but the 10K slides in Grand Game would look cool in either Kingpin or Dom Casual. I hope the repainting of Grand Game is just a new shade of green, because the game with some other color just isn't the same.

As much as many would say OMG CHANGE!!!!, the set updates really necessitate some fresh colors on the props.  At least that 7 week break will allow them to fix them up and not miss any playing time (hey look, a good use of the break!).

Let's clean this up a bit:
Why do you edit everyone's posts to fix grammatical errors and not add anything worthwhile to the conversation? (Adam just beat me to the punch, but point still stands.)

Heh, are you secretly Roger lurking on the board? :D

Kingpin would look nice IMO. And does anyone think Money Game could use some sort of update. It just looks bland to me.

I think Now or Then could do with a facelift.   Shopping Spree too.


I don't really like the lame drop shadow effect on Money Game, particularly behind each of the numbers.

I know this sounds like I'm beating a dead horse with you, Frank, but the only change I can see is the arrows going from brown to dark pink/maroon.  What else did they do to the prop last season?
