I don't know which was worse...the original rules for Punch A Bunch, or for Time Is Money. Both certainly improved with their new rules.

Personally I like seeing the amount of money remaining in a Lucky $even recap after every turn. The contestant is probably thinking about that, so why not us?  :P
