I've hosted. I've played a pricing game.

I'm allowed to keep going? I mean, if nobody is stopping me... :P

$1,200

Also, [img width=x height=x]http://insert image link here[/img], where x equals the number of pixels for the width and height you desire, is how you resize images. You're welcome. :)
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Can't edit the OP (although I request that a mod please resize it to 500x441), thanks for the url though. I will use that url when we get to the pricing game.

No problem! I would have done it myself, but my powers don't extend here. IIRC, it was either Jess or CU who taught me how to do it, so I can't take all the credit. :)

2K: Time is up, and everybody's bids are in. And the actual retail price of that camera is....$1,550!

REDHEADVICKI, come on up! *REDHEADVICKI heads with 2K to the Race Game Curtain*

Welcome, REDHEADVICKI! I'd bet that you would be absolutely delighted to see the fabulous prizes that we have behind that curtain. George, can you tell us what's behind the curtain?

George: Fabulous prizes indeed! We've got a new refrigerator, a 4K HDTV, and a laptop!


From Samsung, this 27.8 ft³ black stainless steel French door refrigerator comes with a FlexZone drawer with 4 temperature settings, an exterior digital control panel, 5 spill-proof tempered glass shelves, and LED lighting.


Next up, also from Samsung, this 75" smart LED 4K ultra HD TV comes with 2160p resolution, built-in Wi-Fi, and a quadcore processor. A stand and one remote is included.


And third, this Alienware R3 laptop comes with a 17.3" display, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and a 256GB solid state drive. An 8-cell lithium ion battery and an AC adapter is included.


But finally...we've got something else waiting behind that door that we'd love for you to win. Unfortunately, it's not a car - it's a brand new SUV!
*cheering and applause*
This 2017 Ford Explorer comes with a 3.5 liter engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, front wheel drive, all-weather floor mats, and rear bumper protector!


Back to you, 2K!

2K: REDHEADVICKI, this is a very simple pricing game. It's called More or Less. Those prices that are shown are not the prices of each item - you have to tell me whether the actual retail price of each item is more or less than the given price. It's a progressive game, and you instantly win any item that you answer correctly for. So even if you provide a wrong answer, the game ends, but you'll still get to keep all of the prizes that you've won up to that point.

So let's begin with the refrigerator - is the actual retail price of the refrigerator more or less than $4,500?
