I noticed the "Ten Thousand Dollars" graphic was still in use in the Grand Game.

Also, $1.80 seems to be a low target price in the Grand Game by 1988.

Great move by Joseph to take the $2500 in Spelling Bee.

Something I noticed in Spelling Bee was that the card in the number 4 slot was partially sticking up, and I could tell it was a
letter, but not which one.  I wonder what would have happened had Joseph picked it.  Also, I know it wasn't played this episode, but did Take Two and Race Game do their prize descriptions in a different order? I want to say that Take Two went straight down the line in order, whereas Race Game did what happened on this episode.

Another thing I noticed in Spelling Bee was that they used a $100 small prize, very unheard of at this time. I do wonder if they ever used other prizes that expensive in this game before.
