"Everything Old is New Again" - gamesurf's Price is Right
« on: April 18, 2020, 06:13:01 PM »
Sooner or later, everything old is new again. -Stephen King

Why not do another one? Another script is ready, another fantastic batch of fake prizes are loaded up to be given away. All that's missing are the contestants!

This one will be traditional in format. Nine contestants will be picked, six pricing games, Big Wheel determines who gets to the showcase. But that doesn't mean there won't be a few surprises around every corner! Some of these prizes and games might keep you on your toes...

  • As before, audience participation is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED! Jokes, banter, memes, are ALWAYS welcome! Shouting out prices and advice is welcome, too, at all times except during the IUFBs.
  • Iíll PM you when you are called on down the first time, but after that, itís your responsibility to check this thread at least once a day! (PM beforehand if you think you may need special circumstances.)
  • All players are on a 24 hour time limit for responses. If you miss your deadline in contestantsí row you get a strike. Two strikes and I reserve the right to call a replacement player the next round in order to give somebody else a chance to participate. Miss your deadline in a pricing game and itís an auto-loss. So please please please, donít forget to check the thread!
  • Donít try to google prices, of course.
  • Do not chew gum on television!
  • And most importantlyÖ have fun!!

Now for your audition question:

Although the format is traditional, there is a theme. This episode is going to air next year during "Recycling Awareness Week". Weíre looking for contestants who are enthusiastic, but also are willing to support the theme, who will come to the studio dressed for the occasion.

Normal dress code still applies, no costumes (this isnít Letís Make a Deal) but an appropriately designed T-shirt with a good slogan just might catch the eye and make the host laugh.

What do you put on your T-shirt? (bonus points if you actually design a virtual T-shirt)

I want to make this show the best it can be, but I also have some IRL things to deal with this week. So I'm keeping sign-ups open for seven days, closing at 11:59 PM EST on Saturday, April 25th.

Good luck!

I'll give it a shot. Because I can't think of anything creative I'll just go dumpster diving behind the studio and look for the 'greenest' shirt I can find. Or just glue recyclables to myself and pass it off as an outfit whichever I find to be more efficient.

Sign ups are still open! While funny T-shirt slogans are appreciated, they are not required. Still looking for at least two more!

Folks, having seen the script, I assure you this is a quality show... so you should sign up for this one!

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I'm in! My T-shirt slogan would be "Recycle! Because buying a bike and riding it just once is dumb."
