Pricing game idea: Pick-A-Card
« on: July 19, 2019, 11:05:26 AM »
Behind door number two a fabulous trip or a brand new car is shown, then the game board is rolled out from behind the door, next to the car or the trip skin. On game board wall there are five playing cards, with the price of the prize displayed, with two cards turned over.  There are also two grocery items with three playing cards behind each of them. The contest at must guess whether the price shown is the actual price or if the actual price is higher than the one shown. For each correct guess an incorrect card is deleted.They must then ďpick a cardĒ showing the missing number to complete the price & win the prize.

I like the idea, but it sounds a lot like Stack the Deck.

This is a good idea. Itís in the top 10% of PG ideas Iíve heard on the site IMO. Itís not too complicated, pretty intuitive, rewards pricing, and not too easy and not too hard.

But JayC is right: It is such a good idea itís already been done. Itís a slightly quicker, easier version of Stack the Deck, except with removing incorrect cards instead of adding correct ones.

"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."

"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."
