Lucky $even- Ouch! The moment that Micheal guesed the five as the last number I had a feeling he had losT.

Race Game- I don't know how Janet pulled a win but she pulled out a win never the less.

Plinko- Steve got real lucky when his second chip got stuck. He ended up winning more money.

One Away- Ouch! The moment that Larry changeed the third number there was no doubt in my mind he had lost.

Grocery Game- Patsy played very well I don't think it could have been played any better.

Coming or Going- Well, that wasn't a hard choice. The moment that Melissa choose coming I knew she wasn't going to lose that one.

Lucky Seven- That was just wrong, Roger. Just plain wrong. :-(

Race Game- She plays it generally slow, but wins anyway. That's sending the wrong message.

Bidding Round #3- #222, Melissa! :-D

Grocery Game- Wow. Can't do it any better than that.

Coming or Going- I am absolutely stunned. That price would've worked for Squeeze Play, but how the heck can you do that for this game? That was just, unbelievably easy.

Showcase- Whoa... TWO car showcases?! A majorly rare event.

BEST CONTESTANT OF THE DAY- Patsy.

SHOW SUMMARY AND GRADE- Another pretty good show today... Grade: 3

Overall good show for what I caught...from bidding #3 to the end.

Patsy DID know how to play Grocery Game...especially with nailing the range with the one price.

Did a game malfunction that caused Coming or Going to be extraordinarally easy?  My only guess would be Bonkers.

And showcase #1?  The buzzing of the bee was annoying as all get out.  Anyone else agree?
Any closer and Bob gives it away.

Lucky Seven- I was shocked that the last number was 9 and shot the contestant down. (Stragey: The second number in the price of the jeep is 9 and the 3rd number is 8 so the 4th and the 5th number is a toss up and he would have won the jeep.)

Race Game: piece of cake

Plinko!: exciting win

One Away: the audience told larry to change the 2nd 2 but instead changed the 6 to a 4 in which he should have listened to the audience

Grocery Game: she really knows how to play

Coming or Going: that was a hands-down win

It was very nice to see all 4 prizes won in Race Game and a right off the bat win in Grocery Game.  In PL!NKO today, I was wondering why is a grocery item as one of the SPs.  I have seen that item before on different games and I wonder if the more expensive grocery items, like medicines, will be in games like PL!NKO in the future.

Hmmm...  Another pretty good lineup today, and contestants who knew what they were doing (other than Larry, who should have won One Away, since repeating digits in car prices are very rare.  The showcases threw me for a loop though, I thought Patsy made a good bid on her showcase (which turned out to be over) and I thought for sure Janet was over on hers (especially since Chevy HHRs tend to be a bit on the cheap side.)

They are on the cheap side; it was the bedroom and the TV that made it expensive.

First, goldenroadfanatic, when you double post, please delete one of them.

Grocery Game.  Wow.  That was just one incredibly impressive win on Patsy's part, with a set up that was obviously never intended to be won!  And after she said she was a loyal viewer, and knew all the game, it's good that she got a miraculous win here!  Normally I might complain that she shouldn't try to win with one product, but seriously, that was her only shot today.  Slowly creeping toward $21 isn't going to do any good if all the products are ridiculously expensive, after all.

I have to wonder just how evil a setup Grocery Game was.  I mean, it was evil, regardless, but I'm wondering if the cat food was the $1.59 or the $3.99 one, with the $3.99 one obviously being the more evil of the two.  Heck, it might've even been the $6.99 one, but I don't ever remember seeing two products in this game with the same price.  Why does Roger enjoy making Grocery Game, as opposed to other games, so ridiculously difficult, anyway?  Even Check-Out has been easier lately!  Check-Out!

Coming or Going may have possibly been the single easiest pricing game of the season.  Or at least in the top ten.  But as easy as it was, you just know there would have been someone out there who actually would have lost.

heelsrule1988 thought:  Race Game- She plays it generally slow, but wins anyway. That's sending the wrong message.

That's kinda' harsh.  She was trying to go fast, and she completely ignored the audience, and most of her trouble seemed to be handling the price tags... so for what it's worth, I'm happy she won.

I agree, Coming or Going was a dead giveaway.

Lucky Seven: Well, so much for Jeeps being won all the time in this game. That was one hard price, with three high digits, and a 9 as the last number. I can't really blame Michael for losing today.

Race Game: Nice win in just two tries!

Plinko: Too bad the last chip for the daughter didn't land in $10,000.

One Away: I had a bad feeling Larry would not change the second 2 after getting four numbers right.

Grocery Game: Woah- an EXACTA here!

Coming Or Going: If this was lost, I would have kicked the cotestant in the ankles. This was just begging for a win, as there was no way Miami could be just $1K+.

Showcases: I knew Patsy had overbid on her showcase. I had a bad feeling we were going to have a Double Overbid today, but thankfully we didn't, and a person from Virginia (my state) wins today!

Overall: The Showcases saved today's show from being completely boring to me.

lucky 7: 9?????? :evil: i would have said 2 (using the paint sealant trick) and been owned by the dob. :cry:
race game: i knew the motorcycle and speakers, but could have mixed up the other two.
plinko: another contestant doesn't drop down the middle, but lucks out this time.
one away: :roll: $22k ford escape? that was a gimme second digit.
grocery game: i would have done the exact same thing before rich could describe any of the products. we all know the shampoo's $6.99; it was on iitb a couple days ago.
cog: was the dob drunk? even booboo would have won THAT.
showcases: i knew patsy was over (focuses are $16-$17k), but i had no idea the other car was THAT expensive.

it always seems showcases are $5-10k more than you think they are. :-?

Lucky 7: As if Mustangs in this game weren't impossible enough, here is the jueep with the very evil price.  I felt bad for Michael.  I though he had it.

One Away: I knew Larry would lose once he left the 2 alone.

Grocery Game: WOW!  I was stunned that it was won despite the extremely EVIL set-up.

Coming or going: Super Easy that she would had to be an IQ of a doorknob to blow this.

Showcase: I never thought the HHR showcase would creep into the $32,000.  I knew Patsy was way over on the Focus.

Overall: A pretty fun show to end May and start the home straightaway for June.

Today's playing of Coming or Going proved to me that Roger must not like Side by Side. That price was a PERFECT set-up for that game!

Lucky Seven: I would've picked 5 in the end. That last 9 was evil and so unlucky.

Race Game: Good, Janet got the expensive prize right and changed the rest. Good. I say, if you gonna take your time against the clock, this is how you should do it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Plinko: I hope India gets a nice present from Steve.

One Away: "That's too many 2s! Change at least one of them!" At first, I wanted to change the last 2, but figured out the second 2 was much better.

Grocery Game: I get so nervous when it comes to new products such as the Selson Salon and the PS Cleaner. I couldn't come up with a plan, until Patsy had enough confidence to win with the Selson.

Coming or Going: Didn't game shows about 15 or so years ago give away trips to Miami with a price like $1344? This was an easy Come. However, there may be that instance where the accomodations may be so cheap that it can be that Going price. I'm not going to worry about that.
