Weekly Pricing Game: Week 5
« on: August 26, 2016, 01:29:08 PM »
Welcome back to the Weekly Pricing Game! Mr. Announcer, what's the next item up for bids?

Why, cu, it's going to be...wait a minute, there's no name here! How am I supposed to call down a player if you haven't given me a name?

No, no, no, that's not how this works! You give us an item to bid on, they bid on it, then someone comes up and plays a pricing game. It's not hard! I know you've been out of work for a while, but come on, now's not the time to screw up! Can't you do anything right?

Oh, an item up for bids, you say? Okay, let's see here...there's gotta be something...oh, here we go, just in time, it's the obligatory refrigerator.


*S-40*

From GE, this beverage center features upfront electronic controls and can be installed under a counter, just like I've got it set up under my podium. This center can hold up to 109 cans or 31 bottles of your favorite alcoholic beverage...I know, because I counted them all as I drank them. In fact, I even made a song about it! "31 bottles of beer in the fridge, 31 bottles of beer..."

...thank you for promptly cutting that drunken idiot off, sound robot. Dunno why we can't ever hire competent people to do these things, but when you're broke, you make do with what you have.

Anyways, the next pricing game will start Tuesday afternoon; get your bids in!

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

CU hosting, it's been a looong time. Awesome. Sadly I am barred from playing his Price hostings since we collab on too much, albeit not here. Good luck everyone, and enjoy the descriptions.

I cheated.

$999.

Sad that we have to say we didn't cheat instead of just trusting each other.

All right, bids are in. Actual retail price of that fridge is...four hundred ninety-nine dollars ($499)! Renty, it's you! Come up here and play a pricing game with me.
*dingdingdingdingdingdingdingding!* *Walking '07*


Now, Renty, in the four games we've played thus far, two of them have been for a car, while the other two have been for cash. However, I think it's time to break that trend, and we're going to break that trend when you win this!

*200A*
It's fantastic trips to Canada, Mexico, Uruguay, and Africa!


First, you and a guest will fly round trip from Rochester, NY to Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Canada, where you'll enjoy six nights at the Arctic Islands Lodge. Hike a glacier, swim in the Arctic Ocean, converse with the locals, and try to not get eaten by a polar bear...just remember, when the two of you are being chased by a bear, you don't need to outrun the bear, you only need to outrun your friend.


Next, you and a guest will fly round trip from Rochester to Ixtapa, Mexico, and then on to some town I cannot pronounce...Zia...Ziha...Zihuatanejo... someone needs to give that town a name I can actually read. Anyways, you'll spend six nights in La Villa Luz, and you can enjoy the beach and all of the other attractions this randomass city has to offer...just steer clear of the cartels.


Moving along, you and a guest will fly round trip from Rochester to Montevideo, Uruguay, and enjoy six nights in the Radisson Montevideo Victoria Plaza Hotel, close to such attractions as the 19th century Solís Theater. Explore the city, and perhaps run into some Uruguayan politicians, as you visit this vibrant, diverse city! You know, of these trips, this seems like the most normal one...


And finally, you and a guest will fly round trip from Rochester to Laayoune, Western Sahara...in the middle of the damn desert in a disputed territory...wait a minute, why would we offer a trip there? Hrmph...anyways, you'll spend six nights in the Hotel Parador. Explore the sights...actually, don't do that, it's the desert, it's too damn hot. Just stay inside, they have a bar. If you must go outside, stick to the pool. After all, bar + pool = instant fun! And there they are!

...can someone please take away all of the alcohol from the announce podium, please?


Anyways, Renty, you can win those four...errm, lovely...trips playing Take Two. All you have to do is to take two of those trips whose prices add up to $5845. You do that, you're taking all four...though I could fully understand if you chose to refuse at least some of them, they don't look that appealing to me either. Anyways, which two of those add up to $5845?

*Insert obligatory "I didn't cheat" here*  :P

Holy hell, I get to play a second pricing game? S&P may have some serious issues with this!

But damn though, it's for four trips -- three of which I may very well die on... Hmm.

If I have to take two, then I'll go with the peanut gallary and choose Canada and Mexico, only because I can make it back home that much quicker in the event I lie about a drunken incident at a convenience store and cause an international uproar.

Something tells me I may very well be wrong in my assessment of these prices, and I'm not entirely sure I'll be disappointed if that's the case.
