I'm in.

10 Chances. Before you boo me for choosing one of the top 3 LFAT games, let me just point out that by the mercy of the show, there have been two modifications to the game to make it easier: removing the 10 second time limit and the zero rule. There is nothing stopping the show from suddenly stopping the tradition, and going back to the 10 second rule, which will make many contestants nowadays lose at least one turn. If that happens, good luck pricing a Lego set from 678, a food processor from 3456, and a car from 12890, and assuming 24 practical solutions for the car, godspeed with a 251 / 3456 chance, or 7.2%, a worse chance than StD knowing the first number. Heck, you even only get about a 1 / 3 chance of even playing for the car to begin with! Name a game in current rotation that has worse odds, that doesn't feature some kind of bailout or partial system of at least $1,000. In fact, name two games in current rotation that even give you less than a 50/50 chance of playing for the car; you will be able to name Golden Road due to the grandiose car at the end, but that's it.
"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

More or Less?

That's true. More or Less, made by Bob, was just simplified Golden Road without a grand prize at the end.
The price will always be right.

Okay, fine, I concede to Golden Road Lite :P .

You know, come to think of it, that would be a very evil game also if the first couple prizes weren't a give-me.

Challenging? Is it like one of those carnival games where at the angle youíre shooting the hoop looks normal but actually the hoop is a squashed oval thatís so narrow the ball is barely able to pass through?

Anyways, $350.

Actual retail price...$1,200!



PatrickRox80 come on up here! You sure showed those other in contestant's row they must've thought you really overbid! Now I can't think of anything better to start off the show than giving away one of these!:...

GA: It's a new car!



Now that's a rather dinky car, so how about we double the fun with one of these!:...

GA: It's another new car!



You know good things come in threes right?

GA: That's right! It's a new SUV!



THREE cars! Count em, THREE! We are playing Triple Play! You can't win just one car; you can't win just two; you have to win all three cars. Tell us about this first car!



GA: It's the Mitsubishi Mirage ES Hatchback! Comes with standard equipment including manual transmission, the Mitsubishi Mirage!

Here we have two prices:



What I want you to do is pick the price closest to that car's actual retail price without going over, and you'll advance to the next car. $15,495 or $15,785?

(sorry for the extra large pics. I tried to download small ones and don't know how to change the sizes here)

Wow, I was torn between $500 and $600. Good thing I thought it was more expensive at the cost of my competitors. Hope none of you minds the pun.  :P

Not even giving me $300 to play with? Okay, if that's how you want to do things. It seems like you want me to go with the lower price, but then again this is the first car. How about we go with $15,785?

He's going for $15,785. We're looking for a YES...



*DING*

He's right! Actual retail price is $15,801. That wasn't so difficult now was it? Onto the second car!



GA: It's the Hyundai Elantra Essential Sedan! Comes with standard equipment including manual transmission, the Hyundai Elantra!

A tad more difficult now. We have three prices to pick from. $20,985, $21,205 or $21,450?

Less than $500 between the three prices is a tad? Sure thing.

I'm not one to apply logic the way other players here do, so I'm going to pick one at random. I'm going to say $21,205.

You need to put a width and height, like this:

Of course, get rid of the extra spaces in the brackets. It'll look like the following if you do that:
