Private link.

EDIT: If this is the episode I think it is, Imad's got a lot of explaining as to how he got it.

According to the FAQ, it’s the show that features the second and last playing of Professor Price.

Not all is lost, however...

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

And now, the main event...

"Professor Price" is a game that could potentially give nightmares.

Especially kids who were afraid the owl would while flapping his wings upon a win begin to somehow fly and come through the TV screen and get them!

As for me in this "older and wiser" age, yeah, the game could have worked. The questions themselves didn't really have to do with consumer knowledge, but yet they did because they helped determine the digits in the price. And you did get asked a question like, "Is '5' one of the numbers in the price of the car?" (The question about Lincoln being on what dollar bill simply set up the follow-up question about 5 being in the price of the car.)

Still, there is no reason why general knowledge questions work on Price. On Let's Make A Deal, trivia works since it sort of provides a tool to make the guarantee higher or the deal easier to accomplish.  If this game used its full potential based on its theme properly, it could have lasted much longer. In addition to what I posted in the Games Long Gone section, other questions could have involved pricing a GP/SP on the desk, or even since you thing of studying as a way to get ahead given the theme, recalling the price of another item used earlier in the show, such as "which one bid item was the most/least expensive?" LMAD occasionally does a recall element regarding prizes being offered. But to make it more like an actual school, the Shhh! sign from Clock Game would be used to prevent cheating.

I'm not sure if I would have been scared like Grand Game's orange "Ten Thousand Dollars" graphic zoom-in, but that owl is definitely unnecessary since there wouldn't realistically be one flying around in a classroom outside of that rare biology class.

I think the best way it coulda worked come to think of it now, is....take a series of like say 6 numbers, and have the contestant pick them one at a time, with Bob asking questions about where/if it was in the price of the car like he did after the general knowledge question in the actual game. Then it'd have been strictly pricing based. Coulda worked under that format I think.
