Thatís Too Much! may be a necessary evil, but itís still evil. -2
Yes, Hot Seat takes too long to play and it eats up a lot of lineup time, but I canít help but find myself enjoying it while itís on. +1

"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." -Mark Goodson

In all fairness, I think it should be 24 hours, since "calendar day" is legitimately different everywhere. Someone could make a post at, say, 1159pm and then another one immediately at 1201am... defeating the purpose of the rule.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

Yeah, I thought about that, but I chose calendar days because they're much easier to keep track of.

3 Strikes ó ó (I know Iím going to Price Hell for this, but I think this game is overrated. Why? Itís luck based and requires basically no pricing knowledge. The set is great, and itís exciting due to the luxury car prizes, but I really wish a less luck based game was chosen for the honor of luxury cars.)
2 for the Price of 1 ++ (I like this game for some reason. I guess I just feel its simplicity, rules that abide by the title (2 prizes; you have to pick 2 digits for the piece of one free one) and solid set make this a good one.)
Golden Road ++ (THE Price is Right game. This site is named after it for a reason. Itís the most grand, fun, suspenseful, and accurate game to what The Price is Right is supposed to be: a fun exciting show where you could win truly fantastic prizes.)

Cliffhangers ++ (I wish I could give it a +3, as I think it's nearly perfect.)
Hole in One or Two - (Yes, I understand it's considered a classic, but the putting accuracy kind of rubs me the wrong way.)
Pay The Rent ++ (I actually really like adding up the prices, an added pricing challenge to give us a high-stakes game.)

Itís in the Bag: +2. A suspense-building test of pricing skill that rewards contestants willing to back themselves.

Shell Game: +1 The poorly-thought out bonus is the only blemish on an otherwise classic game

Pick-a-Number -2

Danger Price + (Simple, but I like the concept of avoiding a price.)
Clock Game + (Another classic like Race Game, though it still has its problems with "out-of-order" guessing.)
Hot Seat ++ (While this game is "loud" in a lot of ways, it is still a fun pricing game. Credit for them starting with only the correct picks too.)

Spelling Bee ++ (Such a fun and quirky set, manages to deftly weave pricing knowledge and bailouts into one game that I always find a blast to watch. I can't 100% say I'm a fan of an exact guess winning all three SPs, but the producers ensure that it rarely happens anyways, and it ultimately just seems like a nitpick to me.)

Lucky $even -- (Even ignoring how manipulative the setups can get, the idea of having to price the last 4 digits of a car with a very small room for error does not sit well with me at all.)

Range Game -- (My main complaint is probably more inflation's fault than anything else, but is there really much pricing knowledge involved in guessing the ending of a prize that's worth multiple thousand within just $150? Not to mention that stopping at the middle of the rangefinder will earn you a win almost every time.)

One Away: +2 (A lot of fun interaction from the host and contestants)
Freeze Frame: -2 (Too much waiting around for a one-prizer)
Shopping Spree: -2 (Just Danger Price, excepting always avoiding the least expensive prize)

One Wrong Price ++ (I don't get why this is so low. There are far worse quickies, and I feel it's different enough from Most Expensive to be fine on its own.)
Check-Out ++ (Always liked this game, to be honest. It's not just pricing the groceries well; it's keeping the 'budget' in mind, adding some strategy to it.)
Flip Flop -- (2nd worst quickie, imo, just behind Check Game. Let's include three options instead of two, and have one of the three be completely pointless. At least the third option had a point in Squeeze Play.)
