PlinkoMan bids $835...



*ding*

But look out, tpir04 bids $731!



*ding*

It's time we rethink the dangers one can do with the prizes we offer here!

*laughter*

Actual retail price of the baseball equipment: $1,826.



*bell sequence, 1972 Walking*

PlinkoMan is the winner! Come on up with me, PlinkoMan away from the trenches. Follow me right up here to the turntable. I would like to give you what's behind that door!



George: A new living room group! From carolinachair.com, this collection of contemporary living room furniture with this upholstered sectional sofa as its centerpiece. It also features a single chair with matching ottoman with each piece lovingly hand-crafted down to the leather accents. Entertain your family for the years to come because carolinachair.com furniture is built to last. It's a prize package worth $6,793.

Me: And spinning around we have the lovely Anitra standing by our cash register. That can only mean one thing: you're going to play the Grocery Game for that living room set. If you're a smart shopper, we might treat you to that collection. Take a look at the five grocery items on this table and listen carefully as George describes each.

George: Gladly, Kevin...



First, a dozen Eggs from Eggland's Best. Good news for egg lovers, eggs can be part of a nutritious diet, and Eggland's Grade A extra large white eggs can help you stay on track with no animal byproducts. Go for the best: Eggland's Best.



A 52 fluid ounce container of Tropicana orange juice. Support your immune system and get all the Vitamin C you need with every 8-ounce glass of Tropicana orange juice. As with all our other juices, it's all made to go just like you.



A 368-gram bag of Chip's Ahoy Cookies. Chocolate chip cookies can put a smile on anyone's face, young or old and there's nothing better than fresh-baked Chip's Ahoy cookies from Nabisco. Chip's Ahoy, a thousand chips in each bag.



A 15-ounce bottle of A.1. Original Sauce. Bring out the taste of your favorite meat and poultry dishes with its unforgettable blend of meal-elevating flavors. Rethinking the steak sauce is why we've been "A.1" since 1862; try for yourself.



And finally, a 52-ounce apple pie from Mrs. Smith's. Mrs. Smith's original flaky crust apple pie is baked with real butter for that fresh from the oven taste. We also use the finest seasonal apples, sweet brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon for that homemade flavor.

Me: Now, the way this works, PlinkoMan, is you're going to run a total using those five items. Tell me how much of one product you'd like and Anitra will add it up on that register. If you come between $20 and $22 at any time, you win the game. Simple as that. Which would you like to start with and how many?

*peanut gallery*

Yikes, none of these look under $2. I guess maybe the Chips Ahoy could be under $3, so I would use that to just nudge you into the range. I would probably start with 2 pies.
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

The steak sauce. That has a price of...



$5.99, if Anitra's hesitant to ring you up, we'll know why in a second. What's PlinkoMan's total?



*buzzer, losing horns*

$25.16, and that's too much money. You'd have had it if you didn't go for those cookies. I'm sorry that didn't work out.

We're going to try again after this message for you!

George, I need another player down here. Who do you have for us?

George: None other than geniusinmath! Come on down! You are the next contestant on The Price is Right!

Me: Right down there, geniusinmath. You're going to take that second spot from the right. Take a look at our next item up for bids.

George: It's a telescope!



The Nextar Evolution 9.25 telescope lets you explore the universe beyond. Its portable 9.25-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube gives off optical coatings and it also features a programmable computerized mount. It also comes with a rechargeable Lithium battery with ten hours of life for non-stop observing.



Me: geniusinmath, you have the first bid on that.

(Bidding order: geniusinmath, tpir04, gamesurf, JayC)

$1520.
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."
