I like the Netherlands set because of the "eggcrate" type display.

I agree - I love that giant display for the numbers.  Reminds me a bit of how big Buy Or Sell's numbers were.

I think the France 88 vane display is kinda neat too.  Also the AUS 2012 version just seems so......cheap.

One fun comparison is how the sets look compared to the American counterpart.  Any Number basically is the same styled prop (based on the year), but since baseball isn't all that common around the world, 3 Strikes looks way different.
Any closer and Bob gives it away.
(except this was a Drew MDS)

This was, unfortunately, par for the course when it came to that iteration.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

Punch-A-Bunch

- We get a look here at Moldova's version of The Price Is Right, one of the more unique series.  It perhaps has the cheapest, smallest overall set of any version and the Punchboard is used for their bonus round at the end of the show.  The TPIR theme is also looped in the background of the entire show.
- The Australian version of the game was called 'Wonder Wall'

Most of these sets look at least somewhat similar to the US versions, with Indonesia's being nearly a carbon copy of the 2nd version of our Punch a Bunch set. Spain's set being circular is certainly different. The Netherlands '00s set makes me think of a mix of Pick a Pair and our original Punch a Bunch set.

And it seems that the one from Down Under in 2012 had far fewer holes than ours does here: only 24, as compared to our 50.

I'd want to be a contestant on the Moldova TPIR. Much easier to win top prize! 1988 Spain certainly broke the mold with their circular gameboard. The 1988 France is actually quite bland; it leaves much to be desired. Leslie's UK with the bubble letters is fairly nice. The 1999 Mexico set has some very funky letters.

Well done, Brosa! (I think it goes without saying from now on.)  ;)

Until you realize that the top prize is $1,180 :-)
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."

If someone came up to you and said, "Pick a number from 1-12. Guess right, you get $1000." I'd say those are pretty good odds, don't you?  :)

     In other words, Moldova would be the PiR from Hell and make the current Drew Price look like game-show gold. 

     But even their set looks like a masterpiece compared to Spain '88.  That's a serious WTFudge.

I wonder what the 'check-out' pricing game looks like around the world.

What in the world is up with Netherlands '00's Danger Price?

I like Pakistan's Take Two.
