I don't believe it's ever been the case in Check Game, but I'm pretty sure there's been at least a few playings of Card Game since the $15,000 starting bid began where the contestant with a $5,000 range could've won without drawing a card.

Here are some more games from one of my favourite international TPIR series, Spain, that I haven't posted previously.

Caja De Musica - plays like Shell Game


3 In A Row - UK game


Los 10 Negritos - not a pricing game at all, but still fun nevertheless.  The contestant draws one ball at a time from a box of 10 balls that are numbered 0-9.  After each draw they have to place the numbered ball as one of the first four digits of the cash amount, with the caveat of placing all four numbers in order from highest (1st digit) to lowest (4th digit). If they can do that, they win the cash equivalent of the number they've created.  e.g. if they've drawn 3, 6, 9 and placed them as the first three digits (963_) then they must draw a 0, 1 or 2 on the final draw to be able to place it as the fourth digit and win.


DGT-sponsored game - DGT is the government department responsible for traffic/road network in Spain.  There are four small prizes that the contestant uses to move their car along the road (you can see four different-coloured segments for the path).  At the start of each road segment, a short PSA for different traffic signals/rules is played, followed by the small prize being presented.  If the contestant correctly chooses higher or lower, their car continues down the road to the next segment and the cash amount at the bottom of the board increases.  If they get a small prize wrong at any time, they lose the main prize (a car in the playing I saw) and win the cash amount that is displayed.


Also, a few refurbishments/other designs not posted previously:

Is Matchmaker like playing Concentration? What is the significance of the ghost with a ball and chain on the set?

A little bit. Six prizes are represented by two panels each and the player picks two panels. If they pick two that don't match, the one revealed earliest is covered back up and they must try and pair the other panel with something that hasn't been revealed yet (and can then only choose a re-covered panel to end the game with a match). Find a matching pair at any point to win the corresponding prize and end the game; pair two empty panels or try to pair something you've already seen but get it wrong and you win nothing.

So basically you can only win one out of six prizes, but also they're lousy prizes anyway. There's a UK playing on Youtube where the prizes include a CD player, a backgammon set, and a silver serving tray.

To be fair the UK version (that one anyway) pretty much ONLY had lousy prizes outside of the showcase round, because of the budget restraints forced on them. So you can't really place that on this one game in this instance.
