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.

I was surprised it wasn't an Armed Forces episode (although the first contestant was in the Navy).  Was there one this season?  (And weren't they usually on the Friday before Armed Forces Day at one point?)

I'll start a debate.

$15,335 has got to a pretty evil price for Dice Game.
Glad they aren't my council-people.

Good Episode Today.
Bargain Game should had been won with that Easy Setup.

I was surprised it wasn't an Armed Forces episode (although the first contestant was in the Navy).  Was there one this season?  (And weren't they usually on the Friday before Armed Forces Day at one point?)

The only Military related episode we had this season is the Veteran's Day Show.

I'm not a statistics whiz like a lot of folks, but at least with that price, you have a 50% chance of rolling a winner each time (1, 6, or the number) whereas when they have cars with 1s and 6s in the price, you are down to  a 33% chance of rolling a winner.  Granted, repeating 3s is tough, but since you don't necessarily know the numbers until the game is over, it's not like seeing two 3s in Lucky 7, Pathfinder, etc.

There was some speculation in chat with a short Pick-A-Pair/Bargain Game half that we might see a Big 3 game last. Good for Gregory for not getting tricked on that washer/dryer combo.

It just looks like an ugly price to me, not even thinking about Dice Game which is difficult to control anyway. That's why we see the number of playings drastically drop off at the end of the season.

When I first saw the preview I thought I saw something like $235,000 flashing on the plinko display so I thought maybe they were playing plinko with a $47,000 slot
Alas though my vision was simply failing me.
I really wanna see plinko played with a $74,000 slot or something next July 4 ($370,000 total)
In the meantime though I'd also like to see golden road show up for Halloween (specifically for a Rolls-Royce Ghost or Phantom)

I was thinking Triple Play was going to be first today when they showed the Spark even when George described the car thinking they might have changed it to have descriptions after each car before the start, but nope. $15,335 wasn't an evil price IMO, it was easy to go with the odds or what made the most sense for each number.

The Plinko playing was fun to watch, almost as fun as the record breaking win earlier in the season.

I heavily disagree.

3s should be given - 1 and 6 automatic, 2 you go higher with the odds, 4 and 5 you go lower with the odds.  There should, under normal circumstances, never be a situation in which you lose the game missing a 3 in the car's price.

The first digit should almost be automatic; while a 4 would have you go against the odds, they typically don't offer 13,000 or below cars in Dice Game any more.

The last digit 5 is an LFaT gimme, anyone that knows the show and rolls a 4 on the last digit probably still goes higher.

Not only is 15,335 not an evil price, it should be a sure winner no matter what the rolls of the dice come out to be.
