Card Game: Very interesting mix. The France 01 set looks like a carnival dunking booth and Italy's looks like a giant Showcase podium with a wide range of colors. UK Joe's giant decks of cards is pretty cool.

Poker Game: I think I like the 87 and 99 sets more than our set.

Australia: Barely a difference from our's really.

Coming or Going: The Argentina set is cool, maybe a bit larger than necessary.

More or Less: Canada's set looks like it was inspired by Gold Rush on LMaD. The China set is so compact. Interesting that Indonesia and Thailand has a scooter/bike at the end rather than a car. Way too dark of a backdrop in the Thailand set.

Interesting price on Lucky Seven in Argentina this week:



She lost on the second 9 :P

I couldn’t help but laugh at this picture, but if that ever happened in the U.S. version, I would change the channel to The View.

Interesting that their version predates ours by eight years. Was the gameplay any different?

Pass The Buck in Vietnam

Fixed it for you. Welcome to G-R!

A couple comments here: First and foremost, although I admittedly can't understand a word of this, I like what I see! CR is very colorful, and the prize cues fit nicely, especially the due at 1:29, which sounds like a remake of this:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3iF9dRF8AQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3iF9dRF8AQ</a>

Now then...

Master Key:
     -Amazing how small some of these sets are, Belgium, Greece and UK Leslie notwithstanding.
     -Chile's huge keys for the win!
     -I do like the second France 01 set, for the shades of blue. It looks very nice, given the background.
     -That curved archway surrounding the keys though. Spain always has some good stuff.
     -UK Leslie's set is a favorite of mine. It's got a wide variety of colors, and it stands out (in a good way) in front of the gold of the Big Doors.

Pass the Buck:
     -I notice there are numbers 1-9. Brosa, what's the prize distribution, out of curiosity?
     -Mexico set is a favorite of mine. Nice color selection.

Shower Game:
     -Leave it to France to adopt a game like this. Out of the three, France '09 gets favorite (next to US version, of course), for smooth transition of colors in between the stalls, followed by France '01. France '15 takes last. Also interesting to note this game was picked up some 23 years after the US version retired it.

The cue at 1:04. (Sorry. Didn't get to it quick enough.)

Master Key: Pretty interesting mix, it looks like there's a wide variety of budgets that each version had for its set.
-I notice the big wheel is visible behind the game in Russia's set. Was it like that for every game played on stage before a SCSD?
-Wow, Chile's keys are huge. Were they the ones used for the game or just props?
-I like the looks of the lock SP podiums in Thailand.
-Off topic, but the Vietnam turntable backdrop makes me think of the nighttime Hollywood turntable from the season 31 MDSs.

Pass the Buck: Columbia has a nice layout. In general the set is pretty cool.

Shower Game: Pretty nice sets, very surprised to see France still playing it. That game name definitely would not be approved here.

Well, it also probably wouldn't be in French...

Yes of course, I should've just said something like "good thing we have the word shower and not use the French word."

I think the picture provided for Canada's More Or Less is indeed Golden Road and MoL, if memory serves.

Total aside: I lucked out and got tickets for Canada TPIR 11... one hour before I committed to working that day.  Such is life :)

It is puzzling that France adopted Shower Game, a game that in America lasted all of ten playings over less than three months - and had not been repeated on GSN.  I wonder what their rationale behind it was.
Any closer and Bob gives it away.
