My Fifth Documented PG Idea: Coupon Book
« on: May 30, 2019, 09:54:45 AM »
The contestant is shown three prizes behind Door 2. The items are described, and then the contestant is handed three coupon tags with varying amounts. The contestant must put one tag on each prize so that, when the value of the coupon is subtracted from the corresponding prize, all three prizes will be of equal value. If the contestant succeeds, he wins all three prizes!

Example: three prizes, as follows:

1) a computer, valued at $2756,
2) designer accessories, valued at $2150, and
3) a motorcycle, valued at $2445

The are three coupons, with values of $856, $545, and $250. The $856 coupon should go to the computer, the $545 coupon should go to the motorcycle, and the $250 coupon should go to the accessories. All the prizes would then have prices of $1900, and the contestant wins.

Sounds pretty straightforward,  making it to where you're bringing three prices of three prizes down to an equal goal amount-- of course, one never knows if the goal amount was met until the actual prices of the prizes are revealed.

This is Clearance Sale in disguise. The only solution that could ever work in this game would be to put the most expensive coupon with the most expensive prize, the middle priced coupon with the middle priced prize, and the cheapest coupon with the cheapest prize. That's exactly what you had to do in Clearance Sale, which I never liked, so I can't say I'm a fan of this idea.
