New Pricing Game Ideas: Detour and Balance Game 3
« on: July 01, 2018, 02:47:08 PM »
Detour:
The first number in the price of a luxury car (think 3 Strikes cars) is revealed.  The contestant is then sat down in a one seat car prop and shown 3 choices for the next number.  They must choose 1 of those numbers by turning left for the first choice, going straight for the middle choice, or turning right for the third choice.  If the number is right, they move on to the next set of 3 choices.  If they are wrong, they will either hit a dead end (where they can simply go backwards and try again) or a detour (game over).  Detours/dead ends would be determined by the producers.  This process repeats for every set of choices until either a detour is hit or the price is completely filled.

Balance Game 3:
4 prizes are shown to the contestant.  Each prize has a corresponding bag.  The contestant must place 2 bags on one side of a scale and the other 2 bags on the other side.  If the scale balances (the first 2 prizes total to the same price as the other 2 prizes), they win all 4 prizes.  Otherwise, they win nothing.  The prices of each individual item and the total price on each side of the scale would be revealed after the main reveal.

On Detour:
That's a pretty neat format that I don't think has been done before.  Yeah, there are other "pick from x digits for each number" games like Cover Up and Temptation, but you've got some uniqueness with this one.

On Balance Game 3: 
That's pretty clever.  It's a little like Take Two, but with just enough differences that it would work.  Here's an idea: For an easy game, have two prizes be each a pair of something, and the others be single prizes.  The pairs almost always end in an even number.  Savvy players will get this and ace that setup.
