And what if there's a set change between the two seasons?

Honestly, what else do they possibly need? The set is already flashy and hi-tech. With Evelyn as the new EP, she might want to make a few changes here and there but I don't see a drastic overhaul in the near future.

Maybe tone down the flurry of GT asterisks, perhaps printing them step-and-repeat on the large backlit towers.

The Season 48 set is identical to the S47 one; everything about the audience area, turntable, etc. is the same. No major or discernible changes.

One classic game did get fully remodeled over the break... but you’ll have to watch the show to find out which one :-).

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work."

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."

I bet if there are any changes to the set, they'll come for the 50th season.

Interested in seeing what classic game got remodeled though.

Classic game?

My bet: Either Golden Road or Money Game.

Betcha 2 to 1 it'll be Race Game. (Please, don't let it be - it's the epitome of 70s style - but I have a dreaded feeling.)

Lemme modify that... “classic-ish.” It’s definitely not a 70’s game.

Turns out the game I’m thinking of debuted a few years later than I thought it did, so “classic” might be a stretch.

Based on that information. My guess is Check-Out.

I think it may be Now....and Then that got a makeover over the summer and we just have to wait and see which pricing game got the makeover.

I'm going with Check Game or Master Key myself. Both I could see getting an upgrade for the 2010's technology.

Check Game already has, so I can rule that one out pretty much immediately.

Pretty sure Now or Then got an update a few years ago, so I'd rule that one out.
