7763K - 06/23/17 Recap Thread
« on: June 23, 2017, 04:00:05 PM »
The first of 3 make up episodes, this once just kept bouncing around the schedule. It was supposed to air on January 11th, then got moved back to February 6th, then again to June 23rd. What led them to changing the show dates, I'm not sure, but I am sure of today's games:

Make Your Move (L)
That's Too Much (L)
Vend-O-Price (L)
One Wrong Price (W)
Shell Game (W)
Money Game ($310)

Moment of the day: Pricing games aren't the only things that can make a show, stick around for the second Showcase Showdown.

So when was the last time the show had a car price ending in 000? Really strange to see that in TTM.

Alright Show today.

That Setup in Vend-O-Price was a loss waiting to happened.

Shell Game was played for the 2nd time this Month.
The last time it was played twice in a Calendar Month, all the way back in May 2006.

We got our 4th 3-Way Spinoff ( Includes the 3-Way Bonus Spinoff ) this season.
We haven't had this many since Season 38 ( 5 )

Per tpirstats.com, October 16, 2013 - coincidentally, in that case, it was also a Mini Cooper in That's Too Much (a $25,000 Cooper Paceman). October 10th of that season also had a $17,000 Kia Soul in Gas Money.

Nice to see that Shell Game had been hiding on this show all along - really hoped it wouldn't skip nearly 5 months of shows, especially when Cliff Hangers and Secret "X" had both skipped unusually long periods of time around this show too.

Make Your Move was somewhat of a toss-up because the two choices for Hawaii were close to each other, but $532 seemed a little too cheap for the luggage.

Pretty difficult Vend-O-Price. I thought the Jello would be under a dollar or a little over a dollar at most and the crackers would be in the mid $3 to $4.99 range. The prize package was also pretty odd because there were several items included that all had to be described and playoffs were mentioned but nothing shown on the TV (I assume they meant NFL playoffs given the original airdate). I wonder if there was more to be shown or talked about that was specifically football during the prize package but they edited it out before airing it today since obviously the playoffs are long over now.
