What Are Your Big Money Week Ideas?
« on: October 12, 2017, 08:52:04 PM »
One thing I'd like to see is Spelling Bee for $100,000, with the letters C, A, and R replaced with W, I, and N, and the CAR cards replaced with WIN cards.

My original idea was $50,000 for spelling WIN and $100,000 per WIN card selected (total top prize of $250,000), but someone else suggested a flat prize for winning instead.
So just out of curiosity, which do you prefer:

$100,000 flat prize for winning the game, no matter how many WINs you get
OR
$50,000 for spelling WIN and $100,000 per WIN card ($250,000 top prize for perfect game)

And of course, what are YOUR Big Money Week ideas?

Interesting idea

Are you talking about something like an Acura ILX or something?

I'm thinking Range Game for a big fishbowl of cash.

Only Range Game?

Screw it, let's make that the IUFB next time, just like an all cash show turned into two all car shows!

Honestly, I want to see a Check Game played for a 35kish car with a range of $70k to $75k. Also, Big Money 10 Chances, where you start out with $100k, and each incorrect guess loses you $10k.
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.

How about Pick a Pair or Take Two played during big money week?  The contestant can win a $10,000 bonus if they win on their first try.  If they need a second chance, they don't win the $10,000 bonus.

Shell Game was played on Big Money Week a few seasons ago for something like $50,000 for a win and $100,000 if the contestant got all four chips and picked the shell that had the ball.

I like your idea for Spelling Bee tpir7215. I think though I would change it to have just 1 WIN card for the playing so $150,000 is the top prize, or have the WIN cards give the contestant the $50,000 and have 1 card on the board with a star or something that wins the contestant $100,000 if they find it.

Winning would come down to pure luck though.

I...never thought of that.  That's one of the best ideas I've heard so far.

Or a mini safe full of cash instead, with said safe being a prize as well.

As much as I am thinking of million dollar spectacular-leveled prizes, however, I must control those thoughts.
That being said, how about Grand Game for $500,000?

Considering how easy Grand Game is, I think $500,000 is pretty excessive, even by my standards.  Personally, I think $100,000 is the absolute max it should be played for.  $500,000 or even $1,000,000 would go better with Pay the Rent in my opinion since that's a very difficult game with an already huge payout.

Another idea I actually just came up with though is for Temptation: instead of offering 3 prizes with 1 fishbowl of cash, make all four prizes cash and play for a $50,000 luxury car with one of the cash prizes being $10,000+

I agree about $500K being too much.  As for difficulty, have two items be within pennies of the target price (e.g, $3.99 - $4.00 - $4.09) and have the next two be pretty close ($3.79 and $4.29).

I'm thinking landing $1.00 on the first spin or a combination of two spins is worth $10,000, and landing $1.00 in Bonus Spin in the Showcase Showdown is worth $100,000, just like the 46th Season premiere.

Spelling Bee is a car game and is known as such. It wouldn't make much sense to change its premise. If the player spelled CAR (or found a car card) within the first three cards turned, maybe a cash bonus is added. Spelling CAR after wins only the car. Just off the top of my head.

You could say the exact same thing about Let em Roll, yet it made perfect sense to play it for $100,000 during 2015 Big Money Week.
