Man, I really miss that style of Clock Game. I do love how they added gear thingies to accentuate the base of the prop, but I don't quite get their point of doing so.

As a side note, I think that the show has sourced its fonts from the TPIR font repository. It's the only place I know of that has the font for the classic Lucky Seven numbers that they use on their Showcase board, the custom 3 Strikes logo font, and one for the eggcrate displays!

It looks like Germany is bring back its TPIR for 3 primetime episodes this year - trailer below.   Original host Harry Wijnvoord is back to host the episodes, 25 years after last hosting.  It appears the set will be the same as the 2017 revival, with the episodes each being 2 hours long with 12 games played.  The first two will air on 4 May and 8 June.

Another quick Promo of the German version. They are using the same announcer from the 2017 reboot. It's nice to see Harry return i remember many years ago he was pushing for the show to get rebooted.

That is definitely a colorful Big Wheel.

Two hours and 12 pricing games, hmm. Has any other version done that? We had a two hour show for the 50th anniversary special last September, but it was just six pricing games with clips and guest appearances.

Someone posted the premiere of the Italian version earlier this year or late last year, and it was two hours long as well, but only had 8 games.  I barely made it through that, so this seems like a bigger slog.  I wonder how they'll pull it off, it will be interesting to see.  This was one of the first international versions of Price I learned about when I joined the fandom years ago, so I'm glad to see it coming back again.  I've enjoyed this topic, it's been interesting to see the different interpretations of not just the games, but the show as a whole in different countries.

They should've  made a few 1hour long episodes. I don't think the average viewer is going to sit and watch 2 hours of Price. I hope the episodes get posted on youtube
