Yes!

*bell sequence, main theme*

Had me nervous for a second but once you found the range, it was no problem.



You still had eight bids to spare. Enjoy those prizes!

We'll have our showcases in a few moments!

Sheesh! Took a tad longer than expected, but we got there.

Peanut gallery, the floor has been reopened for your comments.  :P

The only reason to play Clock Game on HYOs with 30 guesses should be for two luxury cars, or items as precise to the cent, since that would be really fun to binary search.

I'm not joking. 15 guesses on each item allows for a range of 16,384 prices encompassed. So, if the prize is less than $16,384, no one should ever be losing.
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: $117,234 + Canadian dollars

Real life winnings: $300 + $800 in gift cards

I'm inclined to agree. I knew from the get-go that this would be a slam dunk, no matter who was playing, whether it be me or anyone else.

I'd either decrease the number of bids or throw in a third price.

This is why I said Clock Game with 30 guesses, since I didn't want someone winning the top prize guarenteed. Either of your fixes work. I also was thinking about going the Big Money Week route and offering $500 or $1,000 for every guess remaining.

I even saw somebody (long ago!) ask for their AOL chat and play the game in a chat room for real with I think a 45 second timer. It was pretty impressive.

(Suggestions noted. With two tricky games preceding Clock Game, I had to have seen the above result coming even if it took that many guesses.)



The top winner of 1973, thanks to a great run on Clock Game is tpir04!



And today's runner-up is gamesurf.

Let's not waste any time. George, our two players are ready for the first showcase!

George: This showcase contains prizes revealed as we take a look at some world records.

First, we remember Sir Edmund Hillary who in 1953 became the first person to scale Mount Everest. To celebrate, why not conquer a smaller mountain, this inflatable climbing wall!




From Aurora Sports, this inflatable climbing wall can prepare you for a rocky mountain climbing expedition. It measures 28 feet in height with fourfold stitching and it collapses for easy storage along with its portable air pump.

The best-selling song in history is "White Christmas" recorded in 1942 by Bing Crosby. It was pressed so often the original master became unusable, though you may find a reproduction in this jukebox!




Add a touch of the early rock and roll era with this fully-restored original 1952 Model #M100C Seeberg Jukebox. It can play fifty 45 RPM records through its 15-inch speaker, and it includes options for B-sides for a total of 100 songs. It also operates on coin or free play with a wallbox linked right to the jukebox.

Finally, Alaska is the only U.S. state to experience 24-hour daylight, with the furthest north seeing the sun for two and a half months. So, how would you like to experience the land of the midnight sun in your Alaskan expedition?


You and a guest will fly round trip coach from Los Angeles to three Alaskan cities. First, you will experience the beauty of a city surrounded by mountains and trees, Juneau! You'll spend six nights at the Aspen Suites Hotel, overlooking Fritz Cove to your south and the Alaska range behind you.



Next, you'll be on your way to Barrow Point, the northernmost point in the United States. Once you arrive you may never want to sleep with so much to see. You'll spend three nights at the Top of the World hotel with the finest accommodations the great north has to offer.



Then, it's back to civilization when you visit Anchorage. Enjoy even more spacious views of mountains, glaciers and waterfalls while taking in the Native American diversity of this bustling city. You'll spend six nights at the Hyatt House, boasting every modern accommodation you can think of.



Airfare throughout all three cities provided by Alaska Airlines.

And this showcase where you yourself might break a record should you win can be yours if The Price is Right!


tpir04, as the top winner, the decision is yours. Are you going to bid on this showcase or pass it to gamesurf?

The inflatable is I guess $2500ish, the jukebox maybe $4000, and I dunno how to price 15 days of trips...$1200 a day, I guess?

Letís go $26,250.
