This show was downright full of easy setups destroyed by needless, fork-worthy, crowd-inducing losses, More or Less and Flip Flop being the most notable examples. I get that not everybody is an LFaT, but these were just giveaways regardless.

Dottie and Annie each won $1,750 in contestants row, presenting a tie situation during the Showcase Showdown, since each contestant lost her respective pricing game.

OP probably could have worded that better.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

I would have chosen the “4” for the last digit in Cover Up. And from watching Drew today and during several other shows where Lucky $even is played, I can tell pretty well when he would not have chosen “5”, as today’s player did.

For some reason, KIRO-TV showed a Nancy Pelosi tweet during the 6th pricing game. It quickly went back to normal, though..... weird.

Wow, Mardik almost made this a skunked show, but thank goodness for that $26 spread between the ARP and the top of the rangefinder!

Also, because Annie made a perfect bid on her IUFB (worth $1,250) while Dottie's own prize was $1,750, the tiebreaker came up before the second SCSD, and they flipped a coin backstage to see who would spin second, since Leigh won less than either of them ($580) and thus would spin first.

1, 2, 4, 3...
3, 4, 1, 2...
4, 3, 2, 1... whatever. Any order as long as the 4 is not last.

But I can always dream. Some day there will be enough zeroes in Grand Game and people will catch on. Those who want it all will aim for the most expensive "safe" product before their fourth choice.

What else is it gonna take?

Considering your recent track record trying to offer unasked-for trivia that later turns out to be incorrect--how much of this is what you actually saw, and how much of this is what you're guessing/assuming happened?

That rule quirk has been listed as a "here's what they do in this hypothetical" in the FAQ for as long as I can remember. Many on the site might know about it, but maybe some of us don't, there's little harm in bringing it up when it happens once in a blue moon.

Heck, when it happened a year ago, they aired the coin toss as the Closed Captioning bump.

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."

Valid points all, but you missed my point--which was to point out that Teddy's posted a number of "factoids" that later turned out to be false or inaccurate, and I was lightly encouraging him to either limit himself to things he's actually seen, or else cite his sources (thus doing his research). The focus shouldn't be posting trivia that nobody asked for--which is tantamount to posting just to post--it should be contributing to the discussion in a constructive way.
