Who's going to run down that aisle next, George?

George: The name is gamesurf! Come on down! You are the next contestant on The Price is Right!

Me: That third spot right there is where you'll go, gamesurf. Here is the second item up for bids on this show.

George: A pasta maker!



From Kunhewuhua, this stainless steel pasta maker includes adjustable roller and cutter knobs so you can make your pasta as thick or as thin as you'd like. It also has a detachable cutting design for extra customization and 550 watts of power.



gamesurf, what do you bid on that?

$1225.
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."

$8!



*ding*

Unorthodox bid but maybe you have something going here. Actual retail price: $659.



And tpiradam indeed wins that pasta maker! I want you up here, tpiradam. Stand right beside me at the turntable. I have a whole bunch of prizes to show you. What do we have for him?

George: A bar set, an arcade game and a fireplace!



First, entertain guests with sophistication and class with this Anderson Teak five-piece wooden bar set. The durable exterior of the table and each chair makes it formidable against the elements. The chairs fold for easy storage and the table includes storage space for glasses and drinkware.



Next, re-live the golden age of the arcade with this Ms. Pac Man/Galaga arcade cabinet. Race with your friends to beat the high score by eating pellets or shooting down alien aircraft. It operates on coin or free play and includes dip switches so you can adjust the difficulty settings.

Me: Now, there is one more prize I want you to pay special attention to. It's going to shape this pricing game, so listen carefully as George describes it.



A fireplace! Those long winter nights just got a bit cozier with this Classic Flame Astoria infrared electric fireplace. It measures 33 inches across and features a classic design with its steel grate, marble surround, realistic logs and detailed molding. It also comes with a remote control and five color options for the flames.

It's a total prize package worth $8,602!


Me: All those prizes sound good, don't they, tpiradam? You can win them all depending on what you know on some other prizes I'm prepared to offer you. Let me explain how...



The game for you is Mystery Price. Beneath that question mark is the actual retail price of that fireplace. It is the most recent prize that George described for you. In a moment, I'm going to show you another prize and I'll ask you to make a bid on it. You'll want to come as close as you can without going over. If you do that, not only do win that prize, we put that bid into your bank above the Mystery Price. If you are over, you don't win the prize and no bid gets added to your bank.

We'll do this four times. If, after the fourth prize, your bank matches or is higher than the price of that fireplace, you win that, the arcade game and the bar set. This the first item you get to bid on...



It's a vacuum. The models are wheeling that on stage. Here it comes.



George: The Neato Botvac home robot vacuum cleans room to room with precision and accuracy. It has dual-cleaning modes, recharges automatically and it's Wi-Fi ready.

Me: Adam, please make a bid on that vacuum.

*Peanut Gallery*

If I had to take a shot in the dark, I would say the fireplace is around $1,500. $1,500/4 is $375, so I was in a vacuum, I'd be wagering around $400 for each item. This sounds like a competitor to the Roomba, so for this item, I feel that $300 is safe, but you could probably push all the way to $399.
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.

HYO total winnings: $probably like $200k + Canadian dollars

Real life winnings: $300 + $800 in gift cards

$279 is your bid on the vacuum. I will turn this card over and show you that its price is...



*ding*

$576. You gave yourself a lot of room on that; hopefully not too much. We do add that bid into your bank.



One down, three to go. Your next prize is...



Some picture frames. George, how about them?



This pair of digital picture frames from Aluratek, one a 15-inch screen and the other a 12-inch. Each stores 2 gigabytes of memory and can cycle through pictures, music and video files so you can preserve all your precious memories.

What is your bid on those picture frames, tpiradam?

$219 you say. Those two digital frames cost...



*ding*

$330. You came a bit closer that time so you did a bit better when adding to your bank. That bid takes you to...



*ding*

$498. Two more prizes to go. Your third is...



This rug. We'll find out more about it right now.



George: This oval-shaped area rug from Ferdinand. It measures 8 feet by 10 feet in a navy floral design. Its fade-resistant and stain-resistant fabrics are durable while maintaining a soft feel under your feet.

What do you bid on that rug, tpiradam?
