Let me start a quick argument: There was no reason that the car in OA should have been 50k. The only 50k car we had was that L7 Porche, and that wasn't as exciting as the OA win that week due to the price (which was also a 70k car). If there is one thing that I can count on TPIR, that would be that they do not to cheap out on is the potential value of a very hard prize. Cue that $26k bathroom.

My favorite game is Clock Game and my least favorite is Switcheroo, because reasons.

Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

There was also that $59k Porsche 718 Boxster last Dream Car Week, but that was from Range Game and the REAL Dream Car for that day was that BMW i8 in 3 Strikes

Nothing to say here, except...

Should've changed the first four numbers in One Away. At least it wasn't a total wipeout, like a certain show that had a Lincoln in the same game and the contestant thought 1 was the first number.

Good Show today.
One Away had it's 1st loss since 11/8/2011, in which the Contestant only had one number right.

Not a bad show or a bad week.  I've enjoyed the 3-car days we've been getting this Dream Car Week as well as last.

Just curious, when was the last time a contestant managed to get all the cards by getting one of the small prize's price on the nose?  Seems to have been a while.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

I remember that 1990 episode that you're talking about! I still have nightmares about that particular One Away incident!

I am honestly baffled that the Spelling Bee "Exacta = all 3 automatically" thing is not also a rule in Rat Race.

February 6, 2014.

The reason: the show has been intentionally using oddly-priced items for some time... since the first playing of Season 44, they've only used one small prize with a price ending in 0 or 5. That was December 7, 2015.

Was Drew right? Was it "super easy" to win the car in Luck Game Guessing Game I've Got A Feelin' Range Game today? Well, I have definitely seen the actual price quite a bit higher and quite a bit lower in the dark green strip. Yes, I would say they were trying to give that car away.

After seeing today's One Away, I would like to see 10 Chances played for a Dream Car even more. With those digits (5 3 1 7 0) today's contestant probably would have started (if she had at least one chance at it) with $57130 or $57310 as she did today. Would she have then gone to $53710 next, or $53170, or jump up to $71K or $73K? Would she have had enough chances to win? I think that could have been a really exciting game with her and that particular car.

Spelling Bee was just weird today.  Arionne clearly had no idea how to play the game (despite obviously trying to win), yet she had the presence of mind to realize she didn't need the car.  I mean, I'm happy she took the money, especially seeing as it wound up being the right call, but that was still a strange set of bids.

One Wrng Price was definitely supposed to be won.  The price on the shoes stood out like a sore thumb.

They've played Range Game twice so far this season, and both playings have been for a car.  That's weird.  (Not bad, mind you, but definitely weird.)

I'm not sure how to feel about One Away.  Even though there was nothing wrong with the setup, it still wound up playing out in a way I'm sure the show didn't want.  This was probably the best excuse anyone's ever had for getting the first number wrong, but it was still pretty obvious Drew knew she'd lost.

For what it's worth, I'd have won Grand Game.

One Away had it's 1st loss since 11/8/2011, in which the Contestant only had one number right.

One Away has been lost plenty of times in the last six years.

Also, comma placement is important.
