Old Man Willie, famous for his pick 6 in Super Bowl 11, has died at age 78. Old Man Willie was a 9 time Pro Bowler, a member of the 1970s All Decades Team, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his 1st year of eligibility in 1984. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27903518/willie-brown-hall-fame-cornerback-raiders-dies-78
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.
