New Pricing Game Idea : "All-New" Split Decision
« on: August 10, 2019, 05:34:19 AM »
Played for : 2 prices (2 trips / 2 cars...) + $1,000

the goal of this game is you must split the total amount to 2 prizes
and none of the prize have an amount more than the money you split

Rules
1) the gameboard will reveal the total of 2 prizes
2) then the host will add $1,000 to the gameboard
3) then the host will ask contestant 2 questions
first, which prize will split first?
and second, how much money you will split to that prize?
4) all the remained money that not split will go to the other prize
** no offer to quit this game (this is "all or nothing" game)
5) then the gameboard will reveal all two prizes
if all two prizes have an amount that lower than the money splited
you win all 2 prizes and $1000 the host added
but if one of two prizes higher that the money splited, didn't win anything

Example (Played for trip to london & trip to australia)

                          [ S P L I T    D E C I S I O N ]
                   I---------------------I---------------------I
            [LONDON]                                        [AUSTRALIA]

the gameboard reveal the amount of all 2 prizes

                                      [ $ 1 4, 2 8 7 ]
                   I---------------------I---------------------I
            [LONDON]                                        [AUSTRALIA]

then the host add $1000 to gameboard

                                      [ $ 1 5, 2 8 7 ]
                   I---------------------I---------------------I
            [LONDON]                                        [AUSTRALIA]

then the host ask the contestant
suppose that he split to trip to london first for $7000
so the remain $8287 goes to trip to australia

                                      [ $ 1 5, 2 8 7 ]
                   I---------------------I---------------------I
            [LONDON]                                        [AUSTRALIA]
             [$7,000]                                             [$8,287]

then the gameboard will reveal all two prizes (correct first)

                                      [ $ 1 5, 2 8 7 ]
                   I---------------------I---------------------I
            [$6,495] lower                                   [$7,792] lower
             [$7,000]                                             [$8,287]

that case, the contestant win
$6495 london + $7792 australia + $1000 cash = $15,287


same case but
suppose that he split to trip to london first for $8000
so the remain $7287 goes to trip to australia

                                      [ $ 1 5, 2 8 7 ]
                   I---------------------I---------------------I
            [$6,495] lower                                   [$7,792] higher
             [$8,000]                                             [$7,287]

that case he didn't win anything, because the prize of australia higher
that the money splited

what do you think?
(P.S. sorry for my bad english :evil:)

I really like this idea! It wouldn't take that long as a 2-prize quickie, and the $1,000 range seems generous enough so the game isn't impossible. The only critique I would give is just for the sake of time, the host should just choose one of the prizes to ask the contestant by default, so that way another 10 seconds can be saved by axing out an ultimately meaningless choice.

I feel like this should remind me of an active pricing game, but nothing comes to mind. I guess maybe Do The Math as a 2P with a slight cash bonus to it?
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

HYO total winnings: $69,829

Seems like a good idea!  I would almost like to see them use Drew Dollars scooped into a bucket to represent the prices... something interesting like that anyway for the visual.

I think you have an interesting idea here. Please forgive my horrendous, terrible, awful, and in all other ways nightmarish graphic design skills, but after making some changes I've described below you can see my first attempt at a prop at the bottom of this post. The background of the prop would have cards and possibly drawings of a split hand in blackjack.

Here's how I'd imagine this flowing:

1. Start the game by revealing the two prizes like you said, then Drew would say "Please place the combined price of the two prizes in the pot."

2. Then Drew would ask the contestant to pick a card to represent the range, just like in Card Game. This deck would have values from $1,000-$3,000. Whatever value the contestant chooses gets added to the pot.

3. Drew would then say "please split the pot evenly between the two prizes," and some lights would flash, and the amount would get split evenly between the two prize screens.

4. Now Drew would explain "your goal is to use this lever to adjust the price of the trip to London so that both its price and the price of the trip to Australia are above the actual retail price of each trip." He would then show that if you push the lever up, the price of the trip to London goes up and the price of the trip to Australia goes down at the same time, and vice versa.

I'm also not sure I would give the contestant the extra money at the end; the value of the prizes should be enough.

I really think this could work as a replacement for Magic #. Nice job!
