  • Why, oh why?
Not much to talk about these days is there?

As we enjoy our stay at the Extended Priceless Summer Hotel in Rerun City hunkered down in a corner hiding from all the troubles of the outside world, why not have something to pass the time? I present you with the 2nd Annual Price is Right Pricing Game Survival Game: Coronavirus Edition! You may remember how this works from last year but if not here are the rules.

    -One post per person, per calendar day, not necessarily every 24 hours.
    -In each post you may cast one vote for each of up to three pricing games.
    -You may add or subtract one or two points per vote.
    -Once a game loses all its points, it goes into the Coronavirus Graveyard. Trust me, you don't wanna go there.
    -Once 30 of the 77 pricing games remain, you may cast three votes, but may add only one point (not two) or subtract one or two, for each vote.
    -Once we get down to the top ten, you may cast only one vote per post, adding or subtracting one point only.

And for my sake, PLEASE double-check your vote before you submit. Especially if you start your post and notice someone else posts before you submit; the rankings will have changed. Please. I have other things going on IRL, I can't stay on top of this 24/7. Thank you.

I haven't forgotten the way 3 Strikes was treated last time and I want it set up for a redemptive run. It's truly something very special. +2.
Cliffhangers is absolutely terrific. There's a reason it's been practically untouched for 40 years and is still instantly recognizable. +2
Coming or Going is not a terrible idea for a quickie... but the presentation is so bland and forgettable. -2

"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."

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 can't believe what I'm seeing. Voting down because it won last time? Even if some other game I didn't care quite as much for made it to the top, I can usually understand why it might be higher.

Pass The Buck -- (The buck stops too early.)
That's Too Much ++ (Shouting gimmick aside, you don't have to be exact. You just need to narrow down to a range, albeit immediately as you see the higher value.)
Grocery Game ++ (Definitely not in the same league as Buck.)

  • Why, oh why?
At least I look at this game from a purely unbiased standpoint...unlike...a-HEM...some participants.

Grocery Game (+2) Battle lines are being drawn I see.
Hi-Lo (+2) Really needs to be played more.
3 Strikes (+2)

First input. Going to eliminate some 10s for now...

2 points to Any Number for being a classic and one of the most viable games.
2 points to Squeeze Play for being the first game I remember seeing.
2 points from Lucky Seven for being one of my least favorite car games in the rotation for its evilness.

While sides are being chosen for the top dogs already, I'll give some love to the middle of the pack

Magic # (+2): A unique premise and a personal favorite of mine
Pathfinder (+2): The whole set, sound effects and gameplay just work so well
Double Cross (-2): Probably the weakest of the "new age" pricing games
