I have to say I had a lot of fun doing this: hosting as well as coming up with the script. It was challenging! For a half hour show I had pricing game scripts redone multiple times. Mystery Price and Professor Price nearly made the cut. Finding the prizes was difficult. I made about four Showcases with the leftover items from Mystery Price and not to mention how challenging it was to look for weird prizes. Thanks to the following for their prizes:

Midwest Tropical
Ali Baba
Home Depot
Jeep
Costco
Jellio
Trader Joe's
Safeway (had no idea it was an expensive grocery store I literally typed in American grocery store in Google)
Etsy
Intrepid Travel
eBay
Walmart
LCBO
Amazon
Bed Bath & Beyond
X-Pole
Gardeners Supply Co.
POP Yachts Sarasota, FL
Life Supply
The Teardrop Trailer
Buick

Looking back there were some things I'd make sure for next time. I've only seen one playing of Telephone Game and looked up two in total so I was foggy on how to go about the grocery products. I'd probably make sure there was a second combination that would work.

This was a lot of fun and I may do it again down the line but I think instead of going back to hour shows for now I'll keep it 1/2hr until participation picks up. My next plan is to do a 1972 show with prizes from that actual time. Stay tuned!

You know, I'm curious now, as it looks like the suppliers are sorted in order (when their first product appears). If that's the order, I've been to Bed Bath & Beyond a few times, but I didn't think they would sell urinals in store. I thought most places that need one would search somewhere more industrial, and I don't know anyone who has a urinal in their house.

But enough of that. This was definitely a weird show. I can't wait to see more.

Wait, the dice roll actually caused a decent bid & an exciting finish? No way!

Great show Adam, there were surprises around every corner and I never knew what to expect. Well done! Looking forward to the next one!
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."
