POSSIBLE SPOILER!

Watching this episode and reading a recap of it, this episode may well have set the record for number of small prizes used:

* Give or Keep: 6 prizes <$100.
* Ten Chances: 1 prize <$100.
* Temptation: 2 prizes <$100 (plus another prize that was worth between $100-150).
* Shell Game: 4 prizes <$100.

Plus, there was one prize in Race Game worth less than $200 (of a lot that together was worth just $1,231).

I can't think of any other recap or old TPiR I've seen that have had that many small prizes. Just thought it was interesting.

That's aside from the Carey-hosted Plinko special (and any other special wherein multiple small-prize games are played).

I've always enjoyed the way they revealed 10 Chances from behind a curtain in those early appearances.
"Atinale el precio" moment: Contestant Laila has jumped into Marco's arms and taken his microphone.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"

Also interesting to note that 10 Chances used the losing horns early on in its life when the 10 chances were up and did not result in a complete win.

The gold curtain reveal was always fun!  I remember one episode where it wasn't moved away in time and Barker said "WILL YOU remove this screen please....." :)

Poker Game was also revealed this way in its early years too.
