I made an error in my earlier comments. I stated that the letters in Spelling Bee were revealed in inverse order of the word car when in fact the A was revealed 1st. I apologize for the error. I need to be more careful about what I post. My apologies.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Three "CAR" cards alone would be a 1 in 10 chance at an automatic win.

Since you get two free choices, this would be a 1 in 5.18 chance at an automatic win.

2) Side by Side was played at Door #2, as usual, but the prize was "shown" on the screen behind the audience. I'm guessing there's some kind of powering issue so the prop can't be used in front of the audience, where the one for Double Prices is used on occasion.
Actually, that isn't it at all. Scott explained somewhere that the show was going to start to play Side By Side in front of Contestant's Row, but he brought up the point that if a contestant is looking out to the audience for help things could get confusing. If the audience is pointing to the left, but mean go the right, it could create a mess the show might not want.

Always nice to see Spelling Bee, and as kev stated it was very nice to have two long car games played today. Very nice lineup, indeed.

I kind of liked that Race Game angle today. It reminded me of some old TV broadcast where the shot it tight and you can tell it's because they're close to the camera, not because the camera is zoomed in, but because they're actually that close to the camera. Also, it was nice of Adam not to feel the need to hide the game this time. Not everything needs to be a mystery.

Ah, ok. Thanks for that. That doesn't seem like a good reason not to play it in front of Contestant's Row though. The person playing could just "poll the audience" by putting the numbers one way and getting a reaction, and then the other, as in Coming or Going. Or the audience members helping could hold up a number of fingers. Or the player could just choose on his or her own; ultimately, the choice is up to the player anyway.

I think it's a fine reason. The show is not going to waste time by forcing a contestant to try to lead a 300 person audience into a special reverse poll where they have to say the opposite of what they are seeing. It's not worth it, especially considering there is little to gain from having it in front of Contestants Row - they've done fine without it there for 20 years. Today proved that especially, since it showed they don't have to have it in front of CR to free up Door #2 if they wanted to, they can use Door #4 and still play the game in front of Door #2.

Concerning Spelling Bee...that blender was EVIL.  I never would have guessed $65 for that thing.  Looks like Mike got his way on that SP....

Carmen was very unlucky in her showcase bid.  As a result, Jason will enjoy my home city for a few days.

I seem to recall there being a really high ($65) SP on the last playing too, but the usual site I check for these things doesn't have stats for SPs so I can't see if this is an ongoing trend.

So Race Game looks like a kludged-together mess when you keep cutting between cameras during it.  Gee, that's a big surprise. :rollold:

(In fairness, they did show Race Game before the prizes.  That was good...as was pretty much everything about this show with the glaring exception of the way the race was directed.)

And how, pray tell, are you going to make sure no one in the audience is pointing left or right?

I tracked down the segment upon seeing your comments, and I must say...it comes across as Sandler making a change for the sake of change, and I most certainly hope that he only tried this method once and realized that it did not work.

A shame, too, since everything of Race Game prior to the "race" itself looked rather good.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)
