In order, geniusinmath bids $624.



*ding*

Second is tpir04 who bids $1,015.



*ding*

Next up is gamesurf with his bid of $1,520.



*ding*

And JayC rounds us out with $1,016.



*ding*

You're all in a hurry to find out who's won so I won't waste any more time. Actual retail price of the telescope: $2,199!



*bell sequence, 1972 Walking*

gamesurf, you have won! Why don't you come up on stage? You're going to play our second pricing game of the show. I've got a few prizes to show you, starting with one I know you're going to enjoy. Tell him, George!

George: A new car!



A brand new 2020 Chevrolet Equinox LS! Dependability matters with this crossover SUV designed for performance while setting trends in style. It comes with standard features including a 1.5-Liter Turbo 4-cylinder engine, six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, engine block heater and 17-inch aluminum wheels, the Chevy Equinox!

And we get to see a game that hasn't seen the light in 46 years...



Yep! Good ol' Double Digits! What you need to do is figure out the price of the car digit by digit. We've narrowed all of them down to two except for the first which we'll show you.



The first number is two. Light that up, please.



*ding*

Thank you. Every other digit you're going to guess with the help of four prizes which our ladies will show you. They're all two digits in price, and the actual retail price of the tens digit corresponds to that number in the car's price. We'll start with the thousands digit. Here is a prize that will help you.



George: From TaoTronics, this metallic LED desk lamp has five color modes, six levels of brightness and a timer so you can work with any kind of light you need.

Me: Let me show you the last number in the price of that lamp.



It's zero. The first number is either...



Six...



Or seven, making it $60 or $70. That also determines whether you think that Chevy Equinox is either $26,000 or $27,000. Consider that wisely, gamesurf, and tell me which digit is the best fit for the lamp and the car.

ďDumb Dora was soooo dumb...when she was playing Double Digits and the host if she understood the game, she drew a _____.Ē

This was not an instruction manual! Next time Iím answering a prompt itíll be about ďfree money instant win gameĒ!

I have no idea whether an Equinox costs $26K or $27K...but $70 looks too much for the lamp. Itís tricky, but Iíll say 6.

I set this script up about three months in advance. The challenge question came much later, so what a koinkydink.  :P



Gonna say that lamp is $60...



That's one. We get to move onto the next digit so here's George.



George: From Best Choice Products, this dual-wheel yard wheelbarrow is designed to tackle the toughest home projects. It has room for five cubic feet of materials and its rubber-coated steel body is rust-resistant.

Me: The last number in its price is...



Nine. Your two choices for the first digit along with the middle number of that car:



Eight...



And nine. Do you believe that wheelbarrow is $89 or $99, gamesurf?

Nine it is.



Off we go to the next prize. This is for the tens digit of the car's price. George, what else you have?



George: This backpack. From JanSport, this SuperBreak backpack which has been our top seller for 35 years. It has extra padding with one large compartment and a smaller utility compartment.

Me: That backpack's price ends in...



Five. Tell me, gamesurf.



Is three...



Or four the first number in its price? Remember, you're also matching the fourth digit of the car.

We'll light that four up.



We have one more prize to show you. What is it, George?



George: For your Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Maker 2. Create your own Mario levels and match wits against your friends to see who can make the toughest levels or conquer them.

That video game also has two digits in its price, the second of which is...



Eight. The first, which also completes the car's price, is either...



Four...



Or five?

*Peanut gallery*

It launched at $60. I have no clue how the price got reduced, but I would expect it at most to be only a $10 reduction. Go $58.
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

Yeah, thatís an easy one (great game, too, btwóbought it a few weeks ago)!

I think Wal-Mart offers Switch games at a discount at $50 at launchóbut weíre not talking Walmart price, weíre talking MSRP, and thatís $60 everywhere else. $58ís close enough to my liking.

Thatís the only one Iím confident in, though. If this were Temptation Iíd be bailing like a hay farmer.

So, you're going with five.



That gives you a price of $26,945. If you've matched every one of those digits, you've won the car. Any prize you get right is yours, regardless of the outcome. I'm going to give you the option to change any numbers. Do you want to do that?

I donít know Equinoxes, but... to use the Litebulb strategy, itís low-high-low-high, nothing is all low or all high, no consecutive digits. Iíd be a lot more comfortable if I wasnít picking between digits that were one away from each other, but Iíll stick with it.

Okay. If that Equinox is $26,945, you are a winner. The price is...



*buzzer, losing horns*

$27,845, and two out of four won't do it. You matched the backpack and the video game, so you win those at least. I'm sorry, gamesurf.

We're gonna try again in just a little bit!
