3.Retiring Dice Game and That's Too Much!  These games both must have the lowest win/loss percentages of any active game.  If I were a contestant, I'd rather draw Bullseye '72 than either of these.
Seriously?  When I think of games people never win or I'd not want to play, Dice Game doesn't even enter the mix.

I disagree with a lot of opinions about Big $$$ Plinko. I would like to see it every once in a while, but I'd like to see it won as well. (In my opinion, hitting the center at least twice constitutes a win.) Because, believe it or not, a $100k win on Plinko can't happen unless we give it a shot. At any rate, I believe twice a season is plenty, once for Big Money Week and again sometime in the season.

Excuse me?!

Exactly what I said. I would like to see a better host. Drew Carey is one of the major reasons I do not watch the show anymore, and havenít for years.

A far less annoying announcer :P  There was nothing wrong with Rich Fields. :(

Quote from: Mark Goodson
"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work."

Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

My 2019 wishes:

1. That Drew remains host for this year and many years to come.
2. That George remains announcer for this year and many years to come.
3. That the show remains just as fun and enjoyable as it did in 2018 (that is to say, I thought 2018 was an awesome year for the show).
3,402 days until I am re-eligible for being a contestant on The Price Is Right!

Can we not get into Drew-bashing again? Time and time again we have had these arguments about Bob vs. Drew and whatever else. I think by now we understand everyone's opinions on the matter and shouldn't waste time repeating it.

I'd say of all the non-car/cash games, Grocery Game's win percentage remains quite abysmal, mostly due to far too many contestants going over on their first pick. Raising the win range to $20-$22 in 2016 was helpful in terms of usually resulting in a win for those who knew proper strategy, but I'd say raise it to $40-$42 since grocery items used are quite expensive nowadays. $7 in 1972 is around $45 today. Bullseye's target range is also due for a raise as its been 30 years now since the current values were introduced ($4, $8, $12, $16, $20, $24 would be my target values).

I'd keep the redesigned 3 Strikes bag, but I'd just use the classic chips due to the issues presented.

Temptation should lower the ratio between car price and gifts offered, since far too many bailouts are being used.

As far as Pick-a-Number, it's a necessary evil as a quickie, but like Double Prices recently, needs a good touch-up with set.

I not with u on Dice Game! Dice Game has been more winnable lately! They wont retire TTM! It forces too many losses and is used for budget purposes. Also its being won more lately.

EDITED by Steve to sorta-kinda fix quoting.
