That showcase was more than I thought! The maid service was really the biggest surprise.

On IUFB 3, I was hoping to bid $1601, but I couldn't find any pictures. Same for 1602 and 1603.
 
Absolutely excellent show! The graphics were great, especially the showcase podiums. Your hosting style is more straightforward than other hosts, but that's okay. It's nice to have a no-nonsense show once in a while.

Is this the first time we had a DQ in a showcase?

Also, for the future- I'm not sure I would have handled it that way. I'd probably have called on the one excluded from the Showcase (in this case Shocky) to step in and play instead. Seems kinda weird playing against the house, that's all.

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.

Noted. I don't expect it to happen again but I'll keep that in mind.

In my defense, from some timestamp, either from the most recent post or the time I was PMed, I thought I had until 6 EST. Not much I could do waking up and realizing I was DQed. I would have messed around and done $32,132 anyways, since I was never putting the maid service above $2,000 and would have garfed the furniture.

Bullseye I for a car was outright sadistic. I appreciate going out of your way to try to make a difficult game have a high payout, but it just made the game more impossible. Saying that the car ended in a 0 pretty much made the setup at best as difficult as the original rules. Even then, since it wasn't a common car, we had a fun 6 out of 7 tries trying to get the thousands digit. I think this is just me personally, but at the very least, I would have given that setup the most expensive IUFB just for having to endure that, so that way, if someone else lost their pricing game, the Bullseye I player would have made it to the Showcases.

Other than that, great host!
I loved the graphics, and I really liked what you brought to the table.
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

Yeah, in retrospect offering a Caddy in Bullseye was mean-spirited. I had flip-flopped with a range or giving the last digit before settling on the latter. It was a good idea on paper to demonstrate the difficulty, but a normally-priced car would have been more fair.

Most of the graphics were recycled when I did HYO's from 2005. The rest were from later files I've collected by hosting other Net Games.

The problem is, when Bullseye I had no range, the cars were 2 to 3K, so there kind of was a range. The car you set up for me was nearly 60K, And was an upper level model. Thereís a reason BigJon sets up Bullseye with a $1,000 range, as thatís essentially the range the contestants from 1972 received. Honestly, youíre very lucky I somehow got it within $50, and I still think that should have been good enough to receive the car with a set-up that obscene.  :P

But besides that blemish and my changed-guess screw-up (which you handled very well), this was a solid show. Maybe one day Iíll host on Net Games Central. ;-)
Stop the madness.
