Um... I don't think the thing is plugged in? Shouldn't I be seeing a 0, not a blank screen?

*peeks behind board*

Nope, I guess it is plugged in. Maybe it's like Wheel of Fortune, where the number doesn't show until an input is put onto the screen?

*nudges device down*


...This thing goes into the negatives? :twisted:

*forces the lever down*

Let's see how long I can keep this bad boy going!



























(like 5 minutes later)



Aw, it's only a 16-bit integer? I was hoping I could go on for much longer without overflow. Anyways, my hand is getting a little tired. Maybe I can tape something down to the lever?

*takes boxing gloves, and with a menacing look at tpir04, takes the duct tape*

Now, I just need to do this just right... hold on...


There. Now I can fix this game. All I need is a Sharpie and some cardboard. Be right back!

*wanders backstage for another four minutes or so*



























...um, that's not good at all. Let me just add more duct tape to the lever and give my fix to the game...





...and it's perfect! I'll just lock that in, and pray that the duct tape holds.
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.

{after a 20 minute meeting backstage with my announcer, we both return back on stage}

1233: OK, everyone. Mr. Announcer and I got it all figured out. He has graciously decided to donate his pay from today's show to fix th...



{looks over at door 2}




{looks to the crowd}




{looks back to door 2}




...




...WHAT ON EARTH!?!?!

{Mr. Announcer scrambles back to his podium}


I left this stage with one problem, and I come back with TWO NEW ONES!!!


First, I have you {points to TPIRfan#9821} over here. I told you to pull the lever and not make me regret anything. I come back and see you pulling your best Bob the Builder impression on my props  :-)


{looks at renovations}





Admittedly, except for the godawful cardboard, it doesn't look half bad.  ;-)

{TPIRfan#9821 with a toothy grin, duct tape in hand}

Wipe that smirk off your face, doesn't mean I've forgotten what happened here. And what I say earlier about the duct tape!?! Hand it over.

{crowd laughs}



Oh yeah, and as for you...

{pointing directly to tpir04 in the crowd}

...if you don't stop trying to entice a riot to give this hooligan a technical win, I'll show you what REALLY happens to contestants not appearing on stage.  :-x


Ok, now that my blood pressure is back under 200, let's try to see if you've won. You've set the gizmo to a nice round $4,974.

Manuela, can you please show us the price of the snowmobile.


{Manuela flips the tag}



{ding}
{cheers from the audience}



$5,709. This actually looks pretty good. If that cataraft is less than $4,974, I'll have no choice be to reward you for what you done here.

Amber, flip it!!!



{flips tag}




{ding, ding ,ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}
{loud roars from crowd}


And I'm shaking the hand of a winner. You can head over there to your prizes, but please don't touch anything on the way  :lol:

Announcer: I think we all need a break, and here comes one now. More great pricing games on the second half of 123123123's TPiR

I'm now leaving the lever in your capable hands, while I go have a quick talk with my announcer. I'll be back in 2 minutes top.

{after a 20 minute meeting backstage with my announcer, we both return back on stage}

And you wonder why we got into mischief. YOUR MEETING LASTED 17 EFFING HOURS! Really, Numbers. Really.  :P

Time is but a construct, young grasshopper. It's simply measured by how quickly events occur relative to each other.

You see 17 hours, I see 17 minutes.

{snaps out of philosophical daze}

I should really stop taking all the medicine I see in these commercials at the same time  :-o

****************************************************************************

{after multiple medication commercials, we are back to the stage}

1233: I'm still reeling after that whole debacle from earlier. Sadly, we have time for only one more contestant. Who is it going to be?


Announcer: It's going to be JayC, come on down. You are the next contestant on the Price is Right!!!


{applause}


1233: Now first for you consideration are these 3 envelopes.




And their clues are as follows.

Envelope #1: A Flair for the Dramatic
Envelope #2: Paper over Plastic
Envelope #3: Plant Based


Now the final item up for you to bid on is coming from rafters. Take a look.


{wall descends}


Announcer: It's a lovely area rug!! {modeled by Amber}



This 6' by 9' mariposa area rug is hand woven and perfect for covering up all your areas!


{applause}

tpir04 -----------------------> $891



1233: The bids are in and the actual retail price of the rug is...




...so tpir04, come on up!!


{applause}

Now, for your envelope choice?

{picks #2}


Seems as good a choice as any. Let's see.

{opens envelope, revealing a $100 gift card}




Wow, this is surprisingly a nice gift as well as a clue.

{hands over to tpir04}

There aren't too many things nicer than having the ability to spend mone on whatever you like. That's why I was so disappointed that SuperSweeper didn't do better on Grand Game earlier. I know if I ever made it on stage, I'd want to play for some cash, preferably $100,000 playing Pay the Rent. But, even with all my pricing knowledge, that would still be a tough task. Maybe, I would fair better in Time is Money. It's still a pretty big cash prize, and I think I'm decently fast. I used to run track back in high school, so I could definitely handle it. But the time pressure could get to me. Man, how I crumble under pressure.  I guess I never really thought about how...

{tpir04 interrupts my monologing, motioning to back of card}


Huh, what?

{looks at back}


Oh, well I guess it expired in 2017. To be fair, it was a left over from one of our old shows from a while back.  :lol:

But, no problem. You can earn some of your own cash, as well as this!!!


{Race Game curtain rises}


Announcer: It's a brand new car!!! {modeled by Rachel}



This 2019 Nissan Rogue SV 4WD has 4 cylinders, has all the standard equipment, and includes auto dimming rearview mirrors. It's the Nissan Rogue!!!



{loud cheers and applause}



1233: Who needs weird plastic money that inexplicably expires, when you can get some good, old fashioned, no expiration dated paper money?

And you can do that playing Gas Money. Of course, when you win it, you don't necessarily have to use it for gas. That's up to you.  :-D

Now, one of these is the price of the Rogue and has the pink slip attached. The others have varying amounts of money on the back. If you pick all the money totaling $10,000 first, you get both the car and the money.

{cheers}

OK, so where would you like to start, tpir04? Remember, not the right price.

{crowd starts screaming out prices}

I sincerely hope that we'll find out the contents of the non-picked envelopes after the show. I'm too curious.  :-D

Oh, and I'd say the price is audience blocks out my suggestions with noise

Well, Shock, you asked for it. I hate to see what Numbers is gonna do to you, now that you brought it up:

This hits WAY too close to home for me.  :-)

Anyways, while I'm already here...

**yells lower from crowd**

If you recall, Numbers suggested lower from the audience, it was wrong, and it cost me your bonus!  ;)

*shouts out $31,225 and runs behind turntable while chaos between Shock and Numbers ensues*

Ouch.

Also, I'd avoid $28,685 and $29,465 until the very end. If I had to pick one, I would probably lean toward $29,465, but I'm not too sure.

Uhh... I don't know if you remember this, but... Numbers won everything I set up when he got on my stage.  :-D

And you didn't have to listen to his benign advice. If anything, Numbers should get mad at you for blaming your loss on him. :P
