Pricing games for 2009
« on: June 11, 2018, 12:37:16 AM »
I have been doing some research on the debuts of pricing games, and I have noticed that at least one pricing game was released every year, until 2009, then 2011 after that. I was just wondering if anyone knew the reason why.
I walk into Barker's Bargain Bar to find some deals. I notice the men's department and encounter some Temptation. I go over and look at some t-shirts trying to figure out which one is 1/2 Off. One shirt has Five Price Tags on it for some reason so I must go to the price scanner to find out which is the One Right Price. Next I go over to the slacks and see a sign, "2 for the Price of 1." I figure the Clearance Sale price is around $40 each. Seeing that it's a good deal, I Take Two. Time is running short, so I hurry over to the shoes department to see if I can Pick a Pair for my meeting tomorrow. I find the perfect shoes, hurry back to the Check-Out and hand the clothes to the clerk so she can ring them up. She tells me the Actual Retail Price for all the items, and I discover...

THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

Have a nice day.

Hi, you should probably look at it on a season basis vs. calendar year basis since that is how the show is planned out.  For example, Season 36 (07/08) didn't have any new games because it was Drew's first season and the producers felt he had to learn all the current games first.

Oh, I see. So it's not necessarily one calendar year because one year includes a part of one season and a part of the next season. I hadn't even thought of it like that. Thanks a lot!

A typical 'broadcast season' is September through May with repeats around Christmas/New Year when sports take over daytime.

No, it isn't.

Seasons typically run from late September through late June, often with a few additional episodes scattered throughout the summer.  The show generally goes into reruns for a week and a half starting on Thanksgiving, with the exception of Cyber Monday, and for most of the first week of March Madness.

That's true for TPIR, but a typical "network" broadcast season is September through May. OP should have clarified that.

Which is what we're talking about, so why are you adding a "but?"
