Are all our bids going to end in 3 repeating digits? If so, then instead of $1, I'll bid $0,111 Adam!
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.

TPIRfan#9821: $0,111

The actual retail price is...$1,125! TPIRfan that's you! Come up here on stage! Let me tell you we are surrounded by prizes! Have a look!

*MGHS cue*

Announcer: In door #1 a new chandelier!

In door #2 a new vending machine!

And in door #3 a new truck jeep!

First we have from artist Kevin Champeny this playful Jellio 'Candelier' hanging lamp! Designed with the use of thousands of gummi bears with a simple lightbulb placed in the middle for ultra illumination and flavour!



Second a vending machine! The Crane Merchant Media 6 Combo Refrigerated Vending Machine has the capacity to store all of you favourite snacks refrigerated or not!



And finally a new Jeep! Presenting the Jeep Gladiator! Part Jeep, part pickup truck! Comes with standard equipment, smoker's package and automatic transmission!



This wouldn't be called a weird Price is Right without one of the weirdest games: Telephone Game!



I see the art department went all out on that. Anyhoo involved in this game we also have some grocery products. Please tell us about them if you will:

Announcer: First up it's a package of Trader Joe's Black Bean & Cheese Taquitos



Next is a Large Hass Avocado



Then we have a box of Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup Mix



And finally a 2L Bottle of Diet Pepsi!



Here is $5. I want you to purchase two of these items and if you have at least a quarter in change remaining we will move on to the next portion of the game. Which two will you purchase?

Ok. The Pepsi price is:

$2.29

*ding*

$2.29. So far so good. How much for the avocado?

$2.90

*bzzzzzzzzzz* *losing horns*

$2.90! That totals $5.19! And sadly that's the end of the game. Not only do you not have enough change to make a call but you owe us 19 cents. But hey, have an avocado.



We're going to try to get ourselves a winner after these messages!

Taquitos: $3.99
Soup Mix: $2.29

I honestly thought the avocado was a trap, but then I thought, "Eh, it can't be." So quite frankly I would've done the exact same thing.

You know, I just made the mistake of realizing that these prices could be in Canadian and not USD. I figured that a 2-Liter bottle of soda was less than $2 in America, and there was no way an avocado was more than $3, but some soup mixes can be really expensive. But sure, I'll flip you a 25-cent piece for that avocado.  8-)

You know, $2.90 for a single avocado seemed awfully excessive to me... but I just checked Adam's source and, yeah, it's legit. Of course, he had to get his groceries from probably the most expensive store ever. :lol:

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

1691$

Oops, wrote it upside-down. My mistake.

$1691
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."

The only real possibilities are 0, 3, 8 and 9, and based on the proportions of the other numbers, I'd rule out the 0 and 3. Personally, I'd scribble an 8.
