Or:
Sudafed ($9.99)
Red bull ($7.79) + Beans ($1.49) = $9.28
Applesauce ($2.99) + Popcorn ($3.79) = $6.78
Cereal ($5.99)

...says the guy who would have put the Red Bull at the bottom (so much for the "second-most expensive on the bottom" strategy)

Sudafed ($9.99)
Red Bull ($7.79) + Beans ($1.49) = $9.28
Applesauce ($2.99) + Cereal ($5.99) = $8.98
Popcorn ($3.79)
That's j-a-c-a-y-a. Just As Confused As You Are.

I have to admit I actually prefer the enlarged Card Game set.  I could see it working for the old staging as well.

The actual retail price is...

I definitely liked the new Card Game set. The table looks very similar to a blackjack table, especially with the graphics on the table resembling a blackjack table's "rules" and "split" graphics. And if the main idea of the change was to keep the contestant facing the hard camera, I definitely liked that.

I'm good with the new Card Game set, but if they were going to make the table that long, i would have just angled the whole thing in front of the turntable like when they play Side by Side for a trip.

So this hasn't been asked but....why did they not use this as the first aired show/part of premiere week? Why was it taped ahead?

Premiere week always tapes out of order, which generally leads to the sixth episode being the first one taped.  That's the case here.

Was that even the case in the Barker era? I can't quite imagine so, but could be wrong.
