I'll go with the consensus on Money Game. I'd also add Squeeze Play, Range Game, Spelling Bee, and Cover Up to the mix; as well as One Away.

Don't piss me off, or it's gonna be like Bob Barker on Adam Sandler.

One of the reasons I enjoyed doing the Pricing Games Around The World thread was to see how the various games could look with different colour schemes or prop/staging concepts, for better or worse.

The ones that stood out that I'd love to see adapted to the US series were:

Balance Game - changing the colour scheme to Thailand's (although I'd make the diamond behind the scale entirely blue):


Golden Road - changing the grocery item podium to something like Argentina's, with a new, modern Golden Road nameplate at the top:


Bolder colour tones for a number of games like Money Game, Check-Out, Hi Lo, It's In The Bag etc.  The blue in this Money Game and yellow in this Check-Out pop a lot more than their US counterparts:


Bonkers - Replacing the current font (which was popular for about 5 minutes in 2001) with bolder, clearer numbers like in the last UK show:


Range Game & Pick-A-Number - totally new props with new colours and, for Range Game, larger numbers.  Argentina has some nice sets for both games.

I honestly think that having a plasma screen for the display readouts on Check-Out here in the US would look strange. Even though the last 2 refurbishments were replacing the center vane display and the title having an all new look, I like how they still use the original win/loss display and the total display on top. I'd like to see a small refurbishment on Switcheroo for the timer, but leave the display that shows the number correct as it is. I think that Balance game would look cool with a blue & orange color scheme, almost similar to Thailand's. Pick A Number could definitely use a new color scheme. I noticed that Pick-A-Number & Range Game in Argentina has really nice color schemes.

Shopping Spree could use an update. The current prop is stuck in the 90s.

None of them. I hope that's ok to say. I am sorry to hear what happened outside CBS television city Yesterday.
