I would've bailed on Let 'em Roll as well.  $3,500 is a pretty good chunk of change, and with only one roll left and 4 more cars to get, there was only a 1/16 chance of winning the car and a not-all-that-good chance of getting more money.

Wow, what a terrible show. First win was the fifth game? Yikes.

Bailing in Let 'Em Roll was a good decision. Considering that the top cash value in the game is $1500 x 5 = $7500, $3500 isn't anything to sneeze at. You'd be hard pressed to get more than $3500 out of rolling four dice. You'd have about as much a chance of winning the car in that case.

I probably got my CSS bid disqualified by posting about the Nissan truck in the showcase in the Discord chat, but oh well. I learned a valuable lesson today.

But that truck is still bugging me. I swear I see it all the time, its pearl white paintjob is always the same. So for about the last half hour I've been perusing the old recaps... and sure enough, since 12/24/2015 that Nissan Frontier has appeared 16 times. (I didn't go back any further than 7334K.) However, it has not appeared in a pricing game since June 26th when it appeared in Pathfinder. Of course they play with the options a little bit to change up the price, and it seems that the biggest price change comes by way of adding the automatic transmission, which increases the price by about $3K.
Yes, I still use VHS. But I've switched to recording the show in HD with a capture card.

It turns out I've been missing a lot over the years.

I thought it would be the speakers and the refrigerator, and I was right.

But man, what an exciting Pathfinder!

But man, what an exciting Pathfinder!

I agree-- I thought that player was going to pull another one of those losses where:

a. You're down to the last number;
b. You pick the wrong one, and therefore you know what the number is;
c. You lose because you can't get the price of one of the "do-overs" (Drew's term for the second-chance prizes) right, and therefore, you don't get that second chance.
