NFL Hall of Fame defensive end  Fred Dean, a 4 time Pro Bowler with the Chargers and 49ers who won 2 rings in Super Bowls 16 and 19, has died of COVID-19 at age 68. https://www.si.com/nfl/2020/10/15/fred-dean-death-san-francisco-49ers

Personal opinion: If the Chargers hadn't traded away Dean to the 49ers, they might have won Super Bowl 16.
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.
