tpiradam's Price is Right - Back to Basics
« on: December 18, 2019, 08:57:24 PM »
Hello all! It's time for another tpiradam Price is Right episode! This time we're going back to the good ol' days of appliances and furniture, set in the present day. Hour long show and prices are in Canadian dollars. Here is how you can earn a spot as one of the first four: You are tasked with finding the most presentable way to give away an avocado green refrigerator. Any way you like; zhoosh it up, paint it, fire it out of a cannon what have you. I'll be looking for the most creative and practical ways. Sign ups will close Saturday evening permitting I have enough participants!

Have someone hide inside and sing Monty Python's "The Galaxy Song" when it's introduced.

Present it behind the 00s GPT (green), have Grand Game positioned behind it, and when the model (wearing a green dress) opens it up it is filled with green food (green vegetables, green eggs and ham, etc.). Background music is by Green Day.
3,174 days until I am re-eligible to be a contestant on The Price Is Right!

No longer a Push Over!

Well since Christmas is next week why not decorate it as if it's a Christmas tree there! And as for a snack how about some nachos and guacamole! Made out of avocados of course! Lol!  :-D

I don't have any ideas other put a wreath on it. Also, for a snack how about some guacamole dip with original chips.

Due to the site outage, sign ups are extended to this coming Saturday.

Offer a supply of Jolly Green Giant vegetables with the fridge, saying that the fridge is a small-scale model of the one used by Mr. Giant in his kitchen.

I can do one of two things here: I can again extend the sign up deadline or somehow play with six participants (meaning everyone would play a game on stage) or postpone the show...

Peanut gallery here: between the website problems from a couple of days ago and the fact that this is the busy-outside-of-this-website holiday season, I would suggest cancelling the show and reposting it late next week, say Jan. 2, once New Years' Day is over. Just my two cents.

I would keep the six contestants who have already signed up and extend the deadline until January 2 in case more people want to play.

If itís not too late, Iíd like to sign up.

I would be in favor of extending the deadline, since the site outage threw things out of swing and people arenít checking the site regularly on vacation.

As for the fridge: fill it with avacados, throw in a supply of bread and a toaster, and offer it as an item up for bids during Kids Week.
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."
