...I really got bored and decided to make another one of these, didn't I?  ;)

I will be using the same format as before, with four games, The Price Gift Exchange, and a selection of two TNPiR '94-style showcases. Here are the rules I mentioned last time, void where prohibited:

  • I'll PM you when you get called on down, when you make it on stage, and if you make it to the Showcase.
  • Deadlines are 24 hours, but you don't officially get penalized until after I say so. So, if you miss a deadline but preform the action before I call you for it, you are fine.
  • Missing your chance on Contestants' Row will be an automatic pass on your first offense and an ejection on your second.
  • Missing your chance at the start of a pricing game will result in you being swapped with the next-closest player during that IUFB, and you will have to earn your way back onto the stage. Missing a deadline after you've given an action will result in an automatic loss.
  • If you forget to place a bid during the Gift Exchange, if it is your first warning, the prize will automatically be passed. If it is not your first warning OR if you cannot pass, you will be replaced with some stuck on Contestants' Row.
  • If you forget to bid on the Showcase, you will be replaced with the second place person from the Gift Exchange.
  • Audience, don't help during the IUFBs, but feel free to chime in anytime else!
  • Have fun, and feel free to ask any questions, before or during the game!

On the Nose.

Itís just not a good fit for HYO. I tried a practice run once, but itís so easy to break your computer screen...
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."

Time Is Money.

On TV it always seems messy and difficult to follow. While it may be a bit easier online, it's still a hot mess and is usually way to difficult.
3,083 days until I am re-eligible to be a contestant on The Price Is Right!

No longer a Push Over!

Iíd say Time is Money. Itís rather too frantic to get all of your items in  the correct spots for $20K. Plus itís also not a good fit for HyO since you have to automatically count down the total value if you get it wrong on the first try.

Simply put, this gameís too stressful. End of story.

I'm in! I'll take "On The Spot" for $200 please! Oh,  wrong prog-,  but anyway, I'll never get through (and win) this game 'cause it's PLAINLY CONFUSING! And everytime I'm confident about something's price, it seems that it would be a lot more cheaper or more expensive than I thought! That wouldn't help me a lot with this game.

Sticking with my overrated game of Super Ball!! I had it on a HYO in the pre-script era and my opinions on it have changed after seeing gscentral gush about it. I like Skee Ball but I'd much rather play it at an arcade, not a game show.

I wouldn't like to play Trader Bob. I love suspenseful reveals, so this isn't the game for me!

I'm in! I'll choose 1/2 Off as my game I wouldn't want to play. If I get it down to two boxes, I'll be trying to get inside your head. Did you put the money in the box closer to me or closer to the model? The box closer to me would be too easy, so I can clearly not choose the box in front of me. But you would know that I'd try to get in your head, you would've counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the box in front of your model. Of course, 1/2 Off debuted while Roger Dobkowitz was producer, and with multiple uncommon letters late in the alphabet in his last name, I can clearly not choose the box in front of me. But then...well, I could go on. I'll go crazy if I have to play that game! :-P

Professor Price, not because I don't think I could answer the questions, but it was just a total mess of a pricing game.

Double Bullseye. Price is about pricing, not two people going back and forth guessing random numbers for half of the game's duration.

I'd love to join, but please, whatever you do, don't make me play Now or Then.

There are just so many reasons. First off, I don't want to be anywhere near that eyesore. You've updated the set? There are still problems

I want a bit of a challenge to show off of my pricing prowess, or eat some humble pie when I royally mess up. I don't want to play a game where I can basically guarantee a win using the proper strategy. Changing from the 4 now/2 then rule, you say? Still have some issues.

The game's a borefest compared to some of the superior GP games out there. I'm not gonna be picky on the real show, but you better bet your bottom dollar I'll be picky in this hypothetical. You wanna add fireworks after each correct pick for some pizzazz? Still not enough.

That's my one wish, 9821. Don't force Now or Then on me. That is all.

^ I also considered Now or Then but decided to go for Time is Money instead.

Just a heads up: I'll probably bump up the end of signups and start the show later tonight. If there is anyone else who wants to play, there's still time to make my job of selecting contestants harder, since there have been nothing but good answers so far!

Count me in.

Trader Bob because it is hard to understand.
