For those who aren't familiar with Garf's picture, I should point out that it was on CBS.com for quite a while back in the '00s.

(As for me?  I wish I knew what the first game I ever saw was, but I don't.)

I was born at the end of the first season (June '73) and, like several of you, honestly cannot recall what pricing game I saw first.

My earliest memory of TPIR was, in fact, the Showcase on the Dennis James nighttime version.  We were living on my grandparents' farm in rural central PA at the time, and the CBS affiliate in Scranton was too far to offer good reception.  However, the nighttime version in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton market aired on the NBC affiliate, which came in nice and clear.

I can't recall what pricing game I had seen first, but I know it had to be from the first season. I remember those days when the show was on at 2:00 in the afternoon followed by Match Game at 2:30. I hated missing all these good game shows while I was at school, so I was able to catch up on the reruns during the summer.

Is it wrong that I didn't know/don't remember that?  And, confirmed at Thanksgiving this year, my parents still own that TV thirty-some years later.

New TPiR Announcer: Gilbert Gottfried.  See?  Things *can* be worse.

My first game was Double Prices of the Italian edition in 1985

Quite the intriguing question, but that's a longshot to remember...
All I recall is a playing of the Grand Game in the early 90s...that would be my earliest pricing game memory of the show when I was an infant.

The only thing i remember is being excited when they show Rod's face calling the contestants to come on down. I didn't start getting into the show until 2001.


I think i recalled watching a Davidson ep when i was a kid.

I believe it was Lucky $even for me, sometime in the early 80s.

I think I started watching around the time Rod was doing the Announcing ( in the 80's )
 I Don't know exactly which Pricing Game was the 1st one I saw.

Mine was Plinko.  I also remember the Big Wheel with the pink format (my profile picture), so I must have been around 5-10 months old (early 1988).

I'm an "oldie moldie" too, it was Any Number from the first episode, which was 2 days before I began Kindergarten.  I was so mad that I had AM Kindergarten and would miss out on seeing "Price" along with "Joker's Wild" and "Gambit"...except for sick days, snow days, school holidays and summer vacations.
