Isn't this the last time Card Game was played with its $2,000 opening bid and $500-1,000 special deck?

That it was, and by this playing the split screen shot between the contestant's bid and the contestant when it came to revealing the ARP of the car was done away with, which was still there on March 4.

Another note on this Card Game playing, they used the foghorn (MRRP) sound for this loss on an overbid, which in turn made perfect sense to use. I don't know why later in the 90s they switched it to the regular buzzer (BUZZ) for overbids, and while it made sense for underbids, it didn't make sense nor fit on an overbid.

Interesting too that Squeeze Play which normally would use the regular buzzer (BUZZ) for a loss, used the foghorn (MRRP) instead on this playing. I think this falls into the category of Double Prices, 1 Right Price, Hi Lo where those games usually used the tenor buzzer sound but once in a while used the other sound (and that many more games than people realized used both sounds for losses).
