My two cents:

Safe Crackers: Good win.
Money Game: Great win, getting the first 2 numbers on the first try!
Pick a Pair: Tough break there.
Double Prices: Piece of cake!
One Away: Tough break. 'Nuff said. (Interesting, though; I've seen the exact same Kia on one of last week's shows with almost the exact same options offered in the exact same game with almost the exact same price (only a mere $100 difference), and lost the exact same way, missing the 2nd number)
Bonus Game: The winning streak ends on such rare bad luck! (and that was an awesome prize, too) Well, nothing lasts forever.

Showcases: Although both Showcases are good, the Chevrolet Spark Showcase with 2 trips does not catch my fancy, because I'm neither a trip person, nor a subcompact car person. I'm partial to sailboats (and video cameras), so I prefer the 2nd Showcase.

Another good show.

Well we're down to the final full week, but there's still lots to talk about.

One Bids: Just plain old poor bidding by Kim, especially when she bid last. But nice to see a 9th player win despite what was about to happen...

Safe Crackers: Fairly easy with the most logical choice being correct. I feel they close the safe a little too quickly after the prize description nowadays, but it gives you that feeling about needing to crack the safe again in order to have your prizes more dramatic.

Money Game: Nice job!

Pick-a-Pair: $1.50 between pairs isn't terribly difficult compared to some of the setups in its early years, but it definitely adds to the challenge it has seen this season after being a game where I'd love to see it lost. Not any longer. The curse of the Elmira Stove Works kitchen continues.

Double Prices: Pretty easy, knowing the cc really helped here.

One Away: As soon as Michelle changed that 8, I knew it was over given that $16k Kias are more for the Souls and Rios.

Bonus Game: Heartbreaking!  :-(

Showcases: I much prefer the trip/car showcase, first since a new car that I don't like is easy to trade in/sell, I'd love to go to Rome, and even though DC would be a staycation, it can provide some distant family/friends to come visit.

Overall: A decent start to the week.

Show Grade: B-

Pick-A-Pair: Just bad luck for Brian.......And on the wheel, as well.

One Away: The nuts were right! That was a uncommon thing to see..............Then again, if it was for a Kia Rio or a Soul, then Michelle would've won.

Bonus Game: Just outright unfortunate for Xiomara........Damn mixer. And it was the first loss of that game this season.


Safe Crackers: Easy win for Reese!

Double Prices: Same goes for Robin!

Money Game: Nice job by Kevin!


Good way to start the week...........However, SC1 really fooled me since I really underestimated the Rome trip.

Showcase would be tough for me. I don't like subcompact cars or boats, but I'm more of a city person than a beach person so I'd take DC/Rome.

Reese could stick around and try his luck at the search to replace Rob.

Bonus Game is no longer a favorite game of mine since the board was "updated" and the turntable reveal eliminated. I did notice that the background color of the Bonus square was red today, and I'm assuming it was because the game was lost.

I know the "update" is here to stay most likely, but I miss the old blue and black, and the incandescent light. I just don't get the same feeling with the new display, win or lose.

Safe Crackers: 1 of those 50-50 shot games. I would have won as my gut was $650. Very nice Costa Rica trip and great to open the week with a win.

Money Game: The odds of winning greatly increase if the front can be found on the 1st pick though this was still tough seeing as the price ended in 3. Awesome to see the Scion TC won! Outstanding win!

Pick a Pair: It's unfortunate this game is being setup harder as of late. Still today's contestant made his own fate as the V8 pack was clearly more expensive than $3.99. Although I normally like kitchens as prizes this 1 wasn't really my favorite. Still too bad to see a loss.

Double Prices: Setup forced win.

One Away: I got my hopes up after today's contestant only got 2 right on her 1st try. Alas................... I knew once she changed the 8 to a 6 it was going to be a loss. Ashamed the Kia Forte wasn't won.

Bonus Game: Ouch! Really painful way to end a show. Those were some useful prizes and of course it's always a letdown when Bonus Game is lost when only the bottom window could've produced a loss,. Also:

Bonus Game is no longer a favorite game of mine since the board was "updated" and the turntable reveal eliminated. I did notice that the background color of the Bonus square was red today, and I'm assuming it was because the game was lost.

I know the "update" is here to stay most likely, but I miss the old blue and black, and the incandescent light. I just don't get the same feeling with the new display, win or lose.

I'm with you on this. I miss the blue windows on Bonus Game. I've liked most of the set updates of recent yaers but this is 1 I wish hadn't been. I was surprised to see the red today as I had just thought green was now the color of the bonus lightup. This has to be 1 of the 1st losses with the new set.

Showcases: The Chevy Spark showcase was the better showcase and it's unfortunate it wasn't won.

Lineup: Good but not great: Safe Crackers is a great lead off hitter. However while Bonus Game is a great game it is not a great closer. Bonus Game is much like master key in that it's 1 of those games in which some of it's losses are real letdowns and today was 1 of those. A letdown prone game isn't a good closer. I'd have flip flopped the slotting and played Bonus Game 1st and Safe Crackers 6th. Safe Crakers is an equally strong lead off hitter and closer whereas Bonus Game makes a much better lead off hitter than closer. Money Game is a great car game and One Away is decent enough. Pick a Pair isn't my favorite GP game but it's not too bad and it slots well 3rd. A big problem with this lineup is the fact that it includes Double Prices. I would have removed Double Prices from this lineup and replaced it with Range Game. No lineup that includes Double Prices is eligible to be called great.

Overall: 3 wins with a strong Money Game segment and a decent lineup make this an above average show. Decent start to the week.

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.
