Hmmm...  A couple of things stood out...

-Joyce's "I know how to play this!  Uh...  No wait, I actually don't" Check Game;

-A seriously nice playing of Pocket Change, on a freakin' random Mustang, no less;

-Taylor's 5PT playing:  "I know my Dumbo, and that one's true!" after which it turns out to be wrong.  Nice way to get Dobsmacked there;

-A nice little delayed reaction freak-out by Joellyn upon winning the showcase.

Clearance: Easy

Check: She was alot closer than I thought. Only 495 bucks over was a surprise considering she didnt know the game

Pocket: Very good playing and luck. Clearly this game is harder than the first few playings in 2005.

Hit me: What the hell was his problem?

Tags: Seems like we've had 2 of 4 only won in this game lately. I can't remember the last time somebody got 4 prizes right

Switch: Easy enough

Joellyn! She kinda looks like Phire if you ask me. You go girl!

Sigh.  Guess people don't read my posts.

Oh yes, and whinny, yay for Globey!  Good Globey, too.  I never liked the makeover he got later on.

Cassidy was a little strange, but there's no doubt in my mind that his enthusiasm was genuine.  He also played a hard game of Pocket ¢hange very well.

I would really like to know what was going through Joyce's head when she tried to explain Check Game.  Most people who get it wrong at least have some kind of incorrect-but-logical rule system in mind; she just seemed to be pulling numbers out of her hind end.

Hit Me was interesting, if nothing else; it was nice to see someone who actually had the guts to make four draws (and it almost got him a win, too -- he was clearly considering the Garlique before he picked the cookies).

Taylor bugged me.  It's not that I think his excitement wasn't genuine; it's that despite it, he still seemed to be trying to show off.  At least he played Five Price Tags pretty well.

Alexandru's reactions during the Showcase were hilarious.  When the trip to New Zealand was revealed, you could hear him shout, "they just keep coming!"  It's just a shame he made such a ridiculously low bid on it (although considering how close Joelynn was, it might not have mattered anyway).

Glad they used "Cats" for Clearance Sale instead of one of those yucky new cues.


I disagree...I thought The Cats sounded totally out of place.

Clearance Sale: Yeah, the reveal was dull, and the playing was easy.

Pocket Change: Wow!  I was glad Cassidy played it almost flawlessly, despite the EVIL price.

Check Game: I had a feeling the the hot tub would be $3495. I was right, which made me realize Joyce lost the game immediately.

Hit Me: ICK!  This game ran just as long as molasses going down the ramp.  Donald's choices weren't smart.

Five Price tags: Call me crazy, but I was glad to see Taylor not win.  I knewe the DVD was false and the basketball cooker was correct.  That, and showing off in contestant's row got old real quick.

Switch: I would have left them alone as well.

Pocket Change was flippin' surreal.  Possibly the best PC win of the season.

Joyce gets bonus points for asking questions.  Questions are good and make you look remotely intelligent.

Today's ATW Showcase actually had decent locations this time around, instead of the bizzare locations nobody goes to.

Clearance Sale: The safe was a no-brainer, and the guitar looked cheaper.

Pocket Change: Nice work, Cassidy.  :-D  :-D  I was sure it would be $29K.  I gave up about half way through the game because I was so humiliated.  :-P

Check Game: And you thought she did bad in the end...she was going to write to write it for $8000.  :-P How in the heck did she think she could win if the check was for more than the total limit?!?

Hit Me: There's a difference between knowing the rules of the game and knowing how to play well, but I think Donald knew neither.  

5 Price Tags: Taylor was a bit of a showoff.  When he said "I know my Dumbo", he made himself look like Dumbo.

Switch: I figured it was a stay day.

Overall: We got a lot of clueless people today, but Cassidy's super work in Pocket Change makes up for it.

Are you sure about the $450 price on the GPS?  I think that's a little bit high.  My mom has one of them, and the GPS itself retails for $180.  If both US and European map software was included that would be $250 more, but that still leaves the price a bit low.

Ok, Cassidy, player of the day, but JOELLYN for hottie of the day. Is that good enough for you people? Wow, what a crowd, what a board! :-)

EDIT: Isn't the Mustang in Friday's PC the same one that has been lost twice in Triple Play this season?

What does writing checks in real life have to do with knowing how to play Check Game ?


Got overdraft on the account, eh?

oh, no! how was i posted as anonymous? :oops:
something's wrong, as my password didn't work. i then had to get a new one and change it back, and THEN post this.

i thought the same things about hit me. (i even thought he was going for the garlique once.) i did know the pamprin was $6.99 from grand game a while back.
