Most confidence: Ten Chances.

Shocking but true: No Carey-era contestant has ever followed the zero rule and lost. Every Carey-era contestant who lost the game wasted at least one chance on a price not ending in zero.

Least confidence: Stack the Deck or L7. If those games were rolled out, I would assume that that they were being played because they were trying to force a loss, so I'd try to play "guess what the producer's thinking". I'd go the extremes on L7's last three digits, and not be afraid of going against the audience on Stack's GPs. Even then, you still gotta get really lucky and can easily go down in flames.
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."

For me the most confident game would be Master Key. Because I would know to the prizes to get the keys and I would make sure I don't pick the key that would open nothing and I would make sure I have the key the opens one of the prizes and most of all The Master Key.

For me the least confident game would be Temptation. Because I would take the prizes and leave and not go for the car because I would rather leave with something instead of nothing.

With all due respect, why are we bumping this thread after it lapsed 30 days?

That makes absolutely no sense.
