Okay, show of hands:  how many of you didn't pick Plinko today?  I know I didn't.  I took Punch a Bunch, which -- believe it or not -- was actually more due.

An even more due SP is Secret "X", but I still went with the more-common Pl!nko!.

Beats me, Joe.  And I'm one who lost my home from Katty, too.  Besides, the city wants tourists again... trips to New Orleans shouldn't be so bad anymore, anyway.  We could use some folks vacationing again!

$4,000 for a Mac?!  Yikes!! :-o  (And FWIW, I, too, wonder what you meant by "Get a grip on Monday.")

Yeah, I'm late, but I have these things to say:

Coming or going should have been won.  $6795 was the right choice I had in my head.

Barkers Markers: I agree that it was messed up.  Jann really had no clue and annoyed Bob all game long, then the last price showing up when it wasn't time yet?  Strange.

Double Prices: I was thinking $6502 was too high for Tokyo.

cog: another contestant forgets the 0/5 rule.
pl!nko: almost nobody knows that you should drop the chip down the CENTER.
ler: easy as usual.
barker's markers: easy. $2567 was the only thing that could fit with the motorcycle, a chair and ottoman is usually more than $2k, and banjos are not very expensive.
money game: yet again, contestants don't listen to the description. "paint sealant, fabric protectant" screamed 42.
dp: easy. tokyo is all the way across the pacific, so it should be expensive.
showcases: it seems everyone tries to bid on JUST the car, not the other prizes as well. the convertible could have easily been $30k, but there are other things in the showcase. i went for 32k, but would have still lost.  :-(

I don't know whether or not the contestant heard that in the description, but I would not matter:  at least 99% of the audience would have absolutely no clue that the paint sealant and fabric protectant would have a bearing on the last number in the car price.  Heck, I would've never noticed myself if other people on the board hadn't pointed it out, so even loyal viewers probably wouldn't notice if they're not members of this site.
