  • Why, oh why?
...am I the only sane one here that thinks we are blowing Money Game out of proportion?

No, but I'd rather focus my attention elsewhere. Namely them blasted quickies. It bewilders me how some of these bore-fests are still here, and better than any GP game, 3 of which have already bit the dust.

Yeeting 2 points from Flip, DP and Side. Hopefully we can kill them before Lucky Seven.

I'll do my best to help spare Lucky Seven over the other two.  Would've disagreed with Double Prices given it's an original, but DP is no longer with us, so there's that.

Tpir04, not sure if you'll see this, but just want to give you props for getting this game going.  I used to do this and several other games elsewhere, albeit with several different guidelines.  I hope to revive it, but real life (and some/several other things) sorta put it on a respective hiatus.  Might have to reminisce elsewhere, but I'm glad you have this going here.  I so miss these!


Side By Side -- (Not an original, though it's nice to see it pass its quarter century mark.  Still never cared for it)
Flip Flop -- (First game introduced in the "millennium" but that's the only positive I'll give it here)
Lucky Seven -- (Not an original or an easy pricing game but a classic)

Golden Road ++
Triple Play -- (I'd rather play for one car and have a realistic chance to win. Who needs three cars. If I did win I'd forfeit 2 of the 3 cars anyway to avoid paying taxes on them.)

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.

Thank you so much for your support! We did this last year as well, went pretty smoothly I'd say. And note to all: Cu had a point: If/when we're gonna do this next summer we should change it up a bit, so I'll be looking for ideas as we get closer. Nothing planned now of course, as we haven't even finished this year's game, just putting it out there.

Now then,

Lucky Seven (+2) Come on guys, it's not *that* bad. At least get it into the 50s.
Flip and Side -2 apiece, anyone wanna kill two birds with one stone?

I'm not gonna kill two birds with one stone.  However, what I will do instead is allow the next person after me to perform a Triple Play (+2) on Cross (-2), Flop, and Side. 

1/2 Off would get a -2 for its ugly paint job, but its game play is very solid, so it gets a -1 instead.

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.
