I like the concept, but I think the extra punishment should be something other than a minor physical indignity.  They didn't really add anything to the game.  Maybe a Double Whammy takes all of your money plus a spin or two?

If they do another Big Bank, I have a feeling they will leave the trivia element out of it.  That just screams "low budget," and it's also a momentum killer in what's supposed to be the fast-paced part of the show.

I imagine the feel will be closer to the 80's version than the 2000's one, just based on how others have been treated. It's more in now to go retro than reinvent the wheel. The game may be slightly different as far as the bonus round in particular goes, but the format/feel I don't think will take anything from the 2000's era.

Hoping the revival series stays true to the original.

Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

^ All of a sudden the little rounded red squares to the far left and right of the PYL board (look past the projection screens at either side of the board and you'll see a red light running along the edge of the board, and then you'll see another red square with semicircular rounded top and bottom sticking out) make sense to me. A nod to how the Second Chance board was made.

/On topic: faithful to the original would be great...but please, better music :)

Actually speaking of music...didn't one of the licensed games have to use the pilot theme because Fremantle couldn't find the actual PYL music in their archives? (They had it for Gameshow Marathon, but I digress.) Part of me wonders--do the odds favor them re-creating the original library if they still don't have it, doing what they did with Feud when it came back in 1999 and having a modern remix, or doing something new entirely?

That was Press Your Luck 2010 Edition, released on the Wii, Nintendo DS and PC, that featured the pilot theme.

Alright so rough timeline puts GSM in 2005-ish, when they had at least one piece of music--I remember they used the original closing theme for the entire PYL episode (I thought I was hearing things until that episode showed up on YouTube later on). So sometime between then and 2009 (when I imagine they were making the 2010 game), they lost the original music. Or else they lost rights to use it, one.

/I know it's a bit off-topic, but I have a hard time fathoming how either eventuality could happen.

I'm surprised to find this for one, this has to be one of the few remaining that exist, and maybe only recently found? Not sure but feels like it. Thanks for posting it though :)

Also.....interesting thing on this, the Australian Feud theme from this same period would seem to have been heavily patterned after its' theme. If compare the two, they're pretty similar. Listen to the intro here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T-v_Or5X1g

Would Second Chance have lasted longer on ABC if it hadnít been on at the uncoveted 12 Noon ET time? It didnít clear our city (Atlanta, which didnít clear PYL either); I did get to see it on a family trip to Florida. Quite enjoyable.

I think the only thing I mighta changed was the no additional spins in round 1. I was a bit thrown by that, took a little away for me drama wise. I was reading too that the 2nd round didn't have them early on either if I understood it right. So this woulda been after that clearly. Overall pretty entertaining though, and neat to see the precursor to PYL later in full like this and great quality at that. I definitely think it deserved a longer run and maybe woulda gotten it in a better slot, maybe like a 1 or 1:30 spot perhaps?

Second Chance had a better slot in Washington, DC (10:30 AM, likely a one-day delay, which is what the one regular episode with video that circulates that you see above comes from). It's didn't clear WJZ in Baltimore, because like WJLA, it already aired the Noon news. It's successor, The Better Sex, aired at 10 AM on a one-day delay, along with carrying one-day delay episodes of Tattletales at 10:30, which WTOP (now WUSA) aired Dinah! instead at the O&O time slot. But for the O&O's and others that picked it up, Noon was the daytime equivalent of Friday/Saturday nights in primetime.

Still great to see PYL and CS back again!

The Better Sex aired here on a one-day delay at 9 AM. Repeats of Gambit followed.

ďPress Your LuckĒ has a bonus round now, hmm? Color me interested.

And as long as the ďCard SharksĒ reboot isnít 2001 or 1996 bad, Iíll be able to stomach a potential format change.


I guess I'm neutral to the "bonus round" as it relates to PYL.  I personally preferred the Jeopardy! game-play where all participating contestants got to participate in the end game.  Anyway, as the saying goes, change is inevitable.

My guess is the format (including Big Bang, I think) will remain intact, but the bonus round is simply attached.

Honestly, if I were to attach a Bonus Game to PYL, especially if there were a syndicated version, I'd have an "eliminate the Whammy" game, whereby eliminating 10 Whammies wins a bonus prize, such as a car. (Or, if this were the 1980s version, maybe $10,000 cash.)

Here, the game would begin with a set number of Whammies on the board, the idea being you want to land on the Whammy. Each time the contestant lands on a Whammy, it would be worth cash (in the 1980s, it would be $100 per Whammy landed on) and would take that Whammy space out of play. The contestant would get one miss, but a second miss would end the game with only the consolation cash. However, landing on a 10th Whammy would net the bonus.

It'll be interesting to see what the bonus game will be here with the ABC revival.

I see where you're coming from, but I would rather use $1,000 spaces just so that the bonus round isn't contradictory to the main game.

All I could think of is special no whammy spaces.
