G-R win! WOO!

Overall, nice show, but still, now I will riot if we don't see Dice come up this week. $2 1234 in L7? Seriously?
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.

HYO total winnings: $69,829

Very nice to see Golden Road won! The 3 for the speaker system and 0 for the barbecue island were potential traps but Austin didn't go for them thankfully. 7 was the only number that seemed right for the Audi since 8 was just used, the 1 looked wrong, and 5 would be repeating.

I thought the cupcakes were correct in Vend-O-Price also.

Tricky price in Lucky $even. That price is better served in Dice Game.

Sorry. I've had no access to the website until now, 9:40 pm.

Speaking of which, what was it that happened to the site?  When I tried to come here, there was that weird "related links" website which said that the domain name had expired.

Anyone have any idea what happened today?

This has happened a few times before - it's the time of year the hosting bill is (over)due. Fortunately the outage was quicker this time than before.

But back on topic - Golden Road was won! And it was set up very well! But at the cost of making the final prize pretty cheap given all the other stunts they pull nowadays. Ah well, if they must...
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

I can't help but wonder if the 987 combination in Golden Road, wasn't a bit of a subliminal message for Lucky Seven's 1234  :P

Pretty pricey set of prizes sprinkled in the show, with the cheapest being Double Prices' $8816.
"It's a SuperBall prize package worth $11,245!!

I do agree that I was kinda disappointed with how cheap the final prize was.  It was still a nice prize, but for me, not quite worthy of Golden Road.  I would've put the Audi in 3 Strikes or Stack the Deck and had something like a Range Rover for Golden Road (I'm talking about the FULL SIZE $87k+ Range Rover, not the Range Rover Sport or Evoque)

I know this is stating the obvious, but it's so awesome to see Golden Road won.  It's hard to imagine a more exciting way to start a show.

Poor Ian.  He got stuck with a nigh unwinnable Vend-O-Price, and then he missed a dollar by about two centimeters.  It just wasn't his day.

Lucky $even's setup wasn't so much hard as it was just weird.

It's kind of jarring to see the static snowflake background on the Showcase podiums instead of the cascading dollar signs, especially given how much more sense falling snow makes than falling dollar signs.

What a beautiful win in Golden Road!

Evil Vend-O-Price; I suspected that the pizza bagels were the right choice.

A $21,234 car in Lucky $even? What is up with that? I agree, they could've played Dice Game for that :lol:

I definitely agree.  The least they could've done was make the snowflakes MOVE, and/or better yet used one of those snow-covered fonts, like these: https://www.google.com/search?safe=strict&biw=1242&bih=579&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=x7FdWpDDPOGb0wLegZ_IDQ&q=snow+font&oq=snow+font&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l8j0i10k1j0.45583.46508.0.46596.9.9.0.0.0.0.185.967.3j5.8.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..1.8.963...0i67k1j0i10i67k1.0.MUk71X9tp-c
