It's In The Bag: Brilliant little game, nice cash prize, great test of skill and guts, rewards good players--what's not to like? +2.
2 for the price of 1: It's an inferior clone of Safe Crackers, stripped of everything that makes Safe Crackers fun. It works. But it's not close to my favorite. -2

Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

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.

Third day of widening the gaps:

++ to Most Expensive for being yet another classic. Also can't go wrong with its most recent update.
++ to Rate Race for being my favorite game from the Drew era.
-- to More or Less for ripping off Buy or Sell and tacking a car at the end.

I love how we are slowly splitting the games into the haves and the have nots. No average games allowed.  :-)

Make Your Move (+2) A criminally underplayed game with a very unique premise
Range Game (-2) For heavens sake, just scale the range better!
Now or Then (-2) By far, my least favorite GP games

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.

Also, love how someone is saying Money Game is as good as 3 Strikes, because that's objectively false.
"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."

-Drew Carey, interview with Athletic, September 16, 2020

Try again. G-R Lite is already 76th place.  :P

Yeah, I know. More or Less.


Push Over -- (I like the "think" music, but looking back, I see the problem related to picking the first digit in the price. The music can end in just seconds, anyway.)
Time is Money ++ (Previously dull before retirement, now quite fun in the Carey era.)
