Past Big Money Weeks have included Hole in One, Master Key, Pass the Buck, Rat Race and Spelling Bee being played for cash in lieu of a car.
See, I knew someone smarter than me would have the info.  :)

Thanks Teddy

$58?! Oof, Angelica.

That air hockey table was more than I thought it would be!

As for the showcases: the ONE time I've seen recently that a $22,500 bid WOULDN'T have been one's undoing...

AND had Paula bid better and won her showcase, her total would have been  $145,189... just under the  $145,217 won by the:dsw: win off of an $89,500 bid against an ARP of $89,739. But... my heart sank when I read her bid... :(

An EAS test aired by KIRO-TV ate part of the Cliffhangers game for me. Eh, I understand why they do it. No hard feelings.

Lol same here for me in SE Washington, but during the second Showcase Showdown.

And working IT for a school district has taught me that Chromebooks are cheap (and terrible) devices, so I agree that Shopping Spree was not hard.

Iím happy for the $100,000 win! Always good to start the show with a bang.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Shopping Spree was pretty clearly supposed to be won.  I can kind of get thinking electronics would cost more than an air hockey table, but man, if ever there was a case of "avoid the dinky prize" for this game, this was it.

Cliff Hangers was supposed to be won, too, although that sort of goes without saying.

Thank you, Money Game, Cliff Hangers, and Line em Up for getting us a definitive answer on what does or doesn't go into the jackpot.

It's a shame they were evidently running short on time for this episode, because there was obviously at least one spin-off edited out of the second Showcase Showdown.  The way Drew and Daryl were going on about it after the fact, I'm wondering if there weren't more than that.

I've presumed in games like Line that all announced grand prizes are for jackpot winnings, so I wouldn't thank Line.

I missed the last 2 shows of Big Money week due to a power outage in my town that lasted over 36 hours.  I'm glad I get to read the recaps.

Yeah, but Line em Up's what actually got us a graphic.

So there is no way to track the record number of spins in a SCSD anymore? The practice of editing out spins and overbids didnít begin after Bob left the show. Anyone know when this started?
