Here are some of my favorite "best playings" of pricing games:

January 29, 1991: Budd is playing 3 Strikes + for a Corvette and he can't seem to place numbers correctly in the price. Budd eventually racks up two strikes with no numbers placed. However, he makes an absolutely incredible comeback, which results in a great standing ovation from the audience and praise from Bob.

May 5, 2000: The last time anyone played Ten Chances perfectly. Bob got lifted off his feet, making this clip appear in some montages years later.

November 1, 2001: Undoubtedly the best playing of Joker ever. There was a fun contestant and his mother told him to discard card #4, which turned out to be the Joker. The contestant ran into the audience for a celebration.

July 4, 2008: For the second known time in the game's history, someone got the exact total of the grocery items in Check-Out.

January 10, 2012: After a five-year dry spell, someone finally won Temptation. This was on the heels of a two-year dry spell in the Barker era, to boot!

December 22, 2014: Like Budd's playing of 3 Strikes + mentioned above, Luke had trouble placing the numbers in the price of a Lexus IS350c convertible and pulled out two strikes. However, he managed to make an incredible and exciting comeback to win.

October 13, 2016: What has to one be the most pulls in 3 Strikes history ends up being worth it when the contestant wins a Cadillac CT6.

The first complete win on Rat Race is one of my favourites.  You could see how proud and excited Drew was to see everything won for the first time on the game he created.

A few more that I remembered:

10/3/17 playing of 10 chances, when the contestant missed the 1st prize in their 1st 2 guesses , then nailed the next 3 guesses in a row to win the car.

9/20/10 playing of Stack the Deck , the 1st win of Stack ever with only 1 free pick of a number.

A contestant played the notoriously difficult Pathfinder perfectly in this 1991 episode, which I attended:

If she played that today, either the 9 at the end would have been wrong, or the 1 would have been a 0 or 5. The only time 0, 5, or 9 is the correct last digit in Path nowadays is when both choices for the last digit are two of those three numbers. Path I don't think has ever used a multiple of 11 as its final two digits even in the era of harder setups.

Have there been any other perfect Pathfinder playings?

Plenty. I can think of another one from Season 20, a couple from season 34 and 35 just off the top of my head.

The last perfect playing of Pathfinder was on 12/30/15 ( also the playing before that one , 11/16/15 , was also perfect )
