    One Wrong Price: Tough choice between the bar set and fire table. The bar set price looked cheaper than it should be and the fire table's price looked weird.

    That's the lowest I remember seeing the rangefinder stopped in a while.

    Ouch, very tough loss in Pathfinder. Not sure many would've thought to go with the 0 for the 2nd number.

    I thought It's in the Bag was fairly easy until the last bag. Wonder why the audience was so against the shaving cream for the $2.29 bag.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there some unwritten rule that the correct price will be about dead center on the Range Game board?

    At least they did play Pathfinder for a Nissan...just not the namesake SUV.

    Only when they want it won. And then itís usually just under the middle since players tend to stop it early.

    When they donít, itís a bit higher than the middle.

    When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work." -Mark Goodson

    It looked like an edit occurred during Range Game. The green light on the game board was illuminated right before the correct price was revealed in the dark green strip. The light was off in the previous camera shot.

    Am I the only one who groans when Range Game appears? This game has become anything but a game of pricing. How about making the range $1,500 and having a $6,000 span up the board?

    It's been years that people have saying something to the effect of that on here and the game has not been changed, so I can't see it happening. That said, yes a change like that to make it more of an actual pricing game instead of a random guess would be nice.

    IIRC Roger said once on his Facebook something along the lines of "it doesn't seem to matter where we hide it, almost everybody is going to stop it in the middle anyways, so there's no need to increase the range."

    That seems like it's just sidestepping the criticism though. If they're just going to play "guess where we hid the price on this number line" anyways, why NOT increase the range? That's Too Much has the same problem but even TTM at least makes a convincing effort to get dressed up as a pricing game.

    The other argument against is "You can't see the exact numbers on a bigger range so edge cases are harder to decide". But, you know, I'd much rather have them deal with that problem than "Golly gee, I hope I can price this trip within $150 even though $150 probably doesn't even cover the rental car."
