That was a pretty good show, except Card Game had the potential to be evil, as not even $19,700 would've covered the spread, and Terry had rare bad luck on Secret "X" by missing out on the second SP and then losing out on the watercraft. But I'm so glad that It's in the Bag had a $16,000 winner :mrgreen:

If I had played Cardy today and drew the ace, I'd have set the price at $20000. That means with the ace today, I'd have lost with the $1000 range but would have won with the $2000 played under today.

Baggy was totally awesome baby! Estevan went all in on himself and his picks and it paid off with a full $16000 win.  This was the segment of the show  for sure.

Great to end the day with a Money Game win. People should know better than to pick the season number in Money by now but Joaquin made a nice recovery to win the Chevy Sonic.

All and all a pretty good dwy.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Someone really needs to point out to Drew that when he fans the cards out on the new, larger Card Game table, he makes it so the contestant literally cannot reach some of the cards from their spot at the table. The table is so large and Drew does a very poor job using the right parts of the table to play the game. I canít be the only one who notices this.

I wonder if the producers, knowing this, purposely put the aces near the top of the deck, so that when the deck is fanned out the aces end up near the scoreboard, out of the contestant's reach. I doubt it, however; doing so would seem to me like an S&P issue, because the contestant is purposely being put at a disadvantage, but it's an interesting thought.

I really think people overthink things.  Thereís nothing stopping the contestant from walking over to an out of reach card and grabbing it, right?  No physical barrier, and no one telling them ďthese cards over here - you.... you just canít have themĒ

Well, yeah, but people generally don't do that. After all, "one card is as good as any other, so why bother to go allllll the way over there for something when the same exact thing is available right in front of me?"

But when you start espousing conspiracy theories about stacked decks, or tables designed to make the game hard to play, that's when you are getting into overthinking things territory.

Except...it's not "the same exact thing." There are 52 cards in a regulation card deck far as I know, and no two are identical. The contestant is in no way disadvantaged as long as all 52 cards that are supposed to be there are there.

Casey's right--knock it off with the conspiracy theories.

There's no S&P issue here. If Cardy is set up so that contestants are less likely to draw the ace, that's really no different from difficult price setups in Lucky and Stacky. It might make the game less winnable but would not create an S&P issue. The only way there could be an S&P issue would be if they deliberately excluded the ace from the deck of cards in a particular playing. Otherwise no S&P issue.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

I think the difficulty with reaching the cards distant from the contestant is an issue.  Heck, didn't Roger admit that the highest option on the Cover Up board was an issue for shorter contestants? Since then the correct digit is never in the top spot.

That being said, I don't believe that they are stacking the deck in Card Game.

I never said they were. I'm just saying they could, theoretically. I know I didn't say that in my original post but that was my intent.

I'm just saying they could, theoretically.

That's absurd. Stacking the deck, or rigging any game in any form for that matter, is unlawful and would result in a massive lawsuit, and is therefore practically (as opposed to theoretically) impossible. It doesn't matter if you said they were or not--you raised the idea, and we're right to call you out on how massively unrealistic it is.

My suggestion to you from now on--think before you post. If something's blatantly against the law, it's not going to do you any favors to speculate about possible ways they could be doing it. It's also rather silly to raise a possibility, and then say that you doubt they're doing it. If you doubt they're doing it to begin with...why even bring it up?

^I'll defend his logic on the fact that from the evidence I collected for Card Game, the range cards aren't randomly shuffled. There is evidence to suggest that the cards near the ends , on average, are worth more than the cards closest to the center of the contestants, and the card furthest away from the contestant, on average, had the highest value. Although Casey is right in saying there is nothing preventing them from picking any range card they want, the reality is that across 97 recorded playings, only three people chose the range card furthest away from them.

However, Drew explicitly stated during this taping that the deck was shuffled and cut before the show, so you can't make the same argument regarding the aces in the deck. Since that is explicitly stated, that is illegal.
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.
