The Price Is Right Thailand (Current version confirmed?)
« on: June 23, 2015, 07:57:00 AM »
I was going through Instagram until I found these. I screenshotted them. Their version of the set may look like Season 43 according to the big door resembling the USA big doors.

EDIT: I found a promo video. Search for it on google

It looks like they were inspired by USA. I can't translate it because I am Lao and I don't speak Thai.

The finest details are better, the quantity does not

I remake game shows on ROBLOX so that people don't need to travel so far just to be in the show

Since Moszaa hasn't been a member long enough for the software to let him post links, why don't I do it?

So having glanced at this now...it, um, certainly looks interesting.  The games basically look like knock-offs of our props in the vein of TPIR Live!'s Big Wheel, although they managed to do something pretty neat with Shell Game -- the table appears to have been inspired by both sets.  The music is...well, for the most part, the music is Walking.  It seriously seems to function as Walking, Dig We Must, and the theme.

Now, that said, this certainly isn't meant to be a critique of the show as a whole -- it's not like I can understand something that's going on in a language I can neither speak nor read.  It's just that some of their stylistic choices seem pretty odd from the perspective of someone who's been watching the American version his whole life.

So they're playing Grand Game for roughly $575 US, and you get half that amount just for spinning the dollar (or I guess, the 100?) on the Big Wheel.

They did do something I'd like to see the show do if and when they finally replace that display on the Big Wheel with a screen - display the score as the number appears on the wheel.

Two episodes in, they're already repeating games -- One Away has been played on both episodes.

That's pretty weird, given that they only play four games a day.

If you haven't watched this yet, I think you should. This is easily the (2nd to the Quebec version) best modern interpretation of Price. And, what's great about Price, is you don't need to know the language...it's super simple to follow.

The prizes may seem chintzy (the aforementioned $575 "Grand" Game) but that's nearly 10% of the per capita income so it's a decent chunk of change. The music is lacking though.

(I still liked the Filipino version's set splitting in half to reveal the showcase car though.)

Cliff Hangers is sort of amazing, partly because they seem to have cloned the mountain climber, and partly because the yodeling is freaking unedited On the Franches Mountains.

Interesting in that, they maintained the English version of the game's names; yet during More or Less they used Thai for "more" or "less".

I wonder what the Thai version of a $1 one bid is?....

And they apparently have no choice to "round of their prices to the nearest dollar", as they don't seem to have a decimal point in their currency.  :P

It's interesting that they consider 0 to be one higher than 9 in One Away.

I'm interested to see how that would affect Lucky $even (if they play that there). If a contestant were to guess a 0 when the actual number is 9, I'd like to know if that would be counted as being off by one or nine.

That's been the case for One Away here for years, it just doesn't come up too often (if at all now). But this is because of the nature of the game, you really can't go one up from 9 because that would be 10, so you have to go to 0 to make it work.

In Lucky $even, 0 is nine away from nine, period. There's no ambiguity about it. But it sort of looks odd when a contestant loses in this manner, hence why they never use 0s anymore in the game.
Certainly more competent in running a game than Roger Goddell.

It did happen before, and it was part of an infamous moment. Although the actual number was an 8, not a 9.

If the correct number is a 0, wouldn't it make more sense for the "one away" number to be a 1 (go lower to 0, higher to 2)?

Their mountain climber sure hobbles up that mountain, doesn't he? I can't decide if they're trying to further simulate "climbing" or if they just need some WD-40.
