The new Master Key set is totally awesome baby! Somehow, someway, gold just "feels" like the right prominent color for Master Key and the gold and wood mix together extremely well. My favorite new set over the past 10 years is Card Game's, but they've all been pretty good and Master Key's is right up there.

If I were to give another game a new set it would either be Line em Up to make it more of the 21st Century or Pick a Number to make it less ugly and busy.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

I Like the new Master Key set, but I still miss the prize reveal where all three prizes were behind door number 2 and the Big Banna cue is used.

I don't know... the gold theme doesn't look that good with a lack of gold elsewhere...

Is this MK's first major refurb?

Yes. Below is the very first playing of Master Key from 1983, courtesy of Wink Martindale; you'll see it's pretty much the same set the game used until today.
