Favorite Pricing Game

What is your favorite pricing game and why? My favorite is Plinko because it is most affiliated with TPIR.

Any Number.  I like seeing all 10 digits utilized.

I think it is a great pricing game. It truly puts your pricing skills to the test.

I knew someone would say it... I just wasn't banking on it being this early in the thread.  :-D

Plinko. Cliff Hangers and Punch a Bunch are just behind.
Certainly more competent in running a game than Roger Goddell.

My favorite is, if my pic and signature didn't give it away, the Clock Game. It's a long-runner on the show (6th pricing game ever!) and it's easy to win if you know how to play it right. It always gets exciting when the game is fully won!

I love Clock Game!

Master Key, good use of props and can generate excitement.  Also love how all three prizes are revealed at once.
It's common sense, apparently to not put gifs here.

My favorite game is probably Five Price Tags.  Mostly because of the set   :-D

In all seriousness, though, it's a great game - both design-wise and rule-wise.  It's not a surprise that it's been around for nearly 40 years.

There was a thread recently where we all picked our favourite 10 games:  http://www.golden-road.net/index.php/topic,16778.0.html

It's still within the 30 day posting limit so you may wish to check that one out.



FWIW my favourite is Magic #.

I disagree.  Unless you've got the prices of every single item memorized from the store The Price is Right uses, that's not good enough.  And that's assuming you know the deception that lies behind the game's friendly facade:  if you don't, then knowing the prices will make it more likely that you'll lose :P.

But I'll say Pathfinder.  The exact play with stepping to the numbers in the price, the sounds used, the huge, flashy set... so much fun!  Especially if it's set up decently :P!

Switcheroo is my favorite; too bad almost nobody knows how to play it.

I find this funny from a guy with an avatar of Magic #, and whose name has the name of the game PLUS the year it debuted.  :lol:

Simple concept, involves product knowledge, and clangers if all goes well.
