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.  :-)

How about On the Nose? Nobody's using that name!

Without hesitation...

Hurdles
Bump
Give or Keep
Super Ball!!
Poker Game
Credit Card (if it's not already been reintroduced)
Penny Ante (with the original rules)
Poker Game
The Phone Home Game
On The Spot (the name for a different game, just like Ballance Game II)
(to the tune of Sailor Moon)
Guessing prices by moonlight, winning cars by day light, never losing to a real fight, I am the one named...WHAAAAT?!?!

What single game would you like to see make a return?
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."

Super Saver for sure, partially due to it's unjust retirement. Special shoutouts to Buy or Sell, Step Up and Split Decision. Super Ball!! would be so nice to have back but I don't think it would work in this day and age with too many time constraints.

Okay, so aside from the fact that you listed 10 times the number of games that the title asked for (which was freaking one)...

On The Spot (the name for a different game, just like Ballance Game II)

...what in the stupid hell does this mean? :confused:

Not to mention how would “original rules” Penny Ante work in 2019?

“He guesses the gravy mix is $1.09, and he is...”

*wubba wubba wubba*

“...wrong, and with 109 pennies, the game is over on the first pick. Sorry. Stay tuned for more Price is Right, don’t go away!”

Super Saver for sure, partially due to it's unjust retirement.

For similar reasons, I'd like to see Make Your Mark return.

Then again, had Super Saver actually been retired due to technical difficulties as was long rumored, I'd still love to see it return.

This question about what pricing game we would like to see return is just like asking a parent who their favorite child is. And though this question is rather hard to decide between three games on my list I would love to see return, I'm going with those who want to see Give Or Keep return.

My point, exactly. It's not easy to name one single game when there's so many to select from...but if it makes everyone happy, give us Hurdles...

Definitely avoid that!
If that were the case, I'd adjust the 100 penny limit to 500 pennies or higher for inflation. I only thought the original rule was good because I thought it provided a wider window of opportunity to win or lose, compared to the latter rules. But that's just me.

That's the goal. It's not supposed to be easy. Anybody can come up with a long list of 10 games. It doesn't take any thought to do that. By forcing people to pick ONE, they have to weigh the pros and cons and make hard decisions.


but if it makes everyone happy, give us Hurdles...

Your reasoning is "other people care about it"? I think the more interesting question is "what do YOU care about"? Anybody can follow the majority opinion but it doesn't take much critical thinking skills or make a very interesting discussion. If you have a unique reason for wanting a game back I'd love to hear it.

I’m surprised Walk of Fame hasn’t been mentioned yet.

I think Buy or Sell would work best for a revival. The show lacks three-prizers, it takes relatively little time to play, and it offers cash as well to offset the potentially lower-end offerings.
CSS Champion - Season IX (Part II)
G-R Recapper - Season 44 (Part I)

And if you win that trip, you travel to the end of the Golden Road, where we have the most expensive prize ever offered on Golden Road.net!!!! IT IS MORE THAN $481,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Wild cheering and applause) LOOK WHAT WE HAVE AT THE END OF THE GOLDEN ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOUR OWN PRIVATE ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF TAHITI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You and your whole family will fly round trip coach from Los Angeles to Tahiti where you'll sign a deed to a 2-mile across, 2-mile wide island 25 miles off the coast of Tahiti. This island includes a beachouse and more! And if you win this island, you'll recieve A NEW CADILLAC XLR CONVERTIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Torgo has left the building. John and I never really cared for the way he presented himself.

I meant picking just one game...and I wrote that frustratingly. My apologies.
