My honest opinion? Double Digits. It was a good game that made clever use of pricing. The colors weren't good, but that can be changed.

Also I would be open to...
     -Phone Home Game, but with just one person.  The idea of two people doesn't work with the standard one-person format that's usually used. Think of it as Pick-a-Pair for cash.
     -Superball! because I love Skee-ball, and the set was cool as well.
 
And yes, I'd love to see Car Pong as well.

No, seriously. :P

What purpose, then, would the phone serve in this format if there'd be no one to talk to on the other end?

Phone Home Game or something like it could be interesting to play via Skype. Maybe they'd have a celebrity play with the contestant so the on-stage contestant gets the full prize instead of splitting it with a random person.

Bring back Give or Keep but instead of using small products play it with grocery items.  They could be displayed on a table like other games or use the old Joker game "carousel."
I could see a game using Give or Keep's rules played with groceries rather than small prizes.

Bullseye '72, of course.  :-D ...With the $500 range. I'm not heartless.  :P You could re-name it Dialed In, or something like that.  :-)

...Oh, and how was the original Time is Money / It's Time to Stop worse than the current iteration? I honestly can't imagine that being possible. :P

Even though I personally like the newer version more, I did like the original UNTIL they changed the rules and made the name completely pointless. :-)


I think that Penny Ante would be the one game I would have brought back, on the condition the original set is used/remade. It would be perfect time wise, and it's a good test of pricing knowledge. Mystery Price would be another good choice to me, with a few gameplay changes (make the prize package similar to Safe Crackers with the smaller prize being the mystery prize, go from 4 small prizes to 3).

On a bit of a tangent, I think that Gold Rush from the TPIR/LMAD mashup week would be a great quick car game. IMO, if they just had reveals for where the digits went as they were picked, it would already be better than Gridlock.

PLEASE spare us any further celebrity tie-ins to the regular daytime show. A "random person" might not be famous, but they're what I tuned into the show to see--ordinary people like me participating.

So somebody who works for the show is going to be directly responsible for how much money the contestant can potentially win? S&P issues aside (and I’m sure there’s a mountain), that’s a PR disaster waiting to happen.

Even in the 80’s Phone Home Game was a very “out there” idea. It worked, against all odds, but the novelty value is missing in an era where anybody can easily interact with the show on social media or win stuff on the website.
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."

Forget I said anything. Maybe it could be redesigned for Skype users?

^I mean, we had The Home Phone Plinko on the Superfan show, so it technically is a possibility, but unless the game is a once-per-season game, I'm almost sure that there would be some type of technical difficulty.

It doesn't have to be called Phone Home Game. The game could simply be renamed, as in Make your Mark.

Give or Keep could be interesting if it had 6 prizes in the $900-$1500 range

So could anyone with access to YouTube.  It's called "Hurdles." :P
