Rather fair show today.  As Clock Game progressed, it went from what could’ve been a failure to the opposite.  Meanwhile, as Stack the Deck progressed, it went from okay to all but no chance.  I don’t think today’s contestant was going to win anyway.

Nice seeing Poker Game again.  No, the game was not revived, instead, it was a part of the Cover Up Wrong Price (today honoring 1975).  The original Golden Road logo/prop was also there.  There will be a ton to choose from when we get to 1976; that’s for sure!

Biggest highlight was the eventual showcase winner winning $5000 in punch a bunch, but he could have won $10,000 had he continued.  No one’s giving up $10,000 for a shot at $25,000, but had he done so, he would’ve had to settle for $10K since he hit the other slip.  I believe it was a first since the updated totals

The last playing of Punch ( since the top prize was increased to $25k ) to have a contestant punch 2 5-digit money amounts was 6/19/2014.

So I'd love to hear from whoever is our resident statistician/odd-calculator......what are the odds with 4 punches that the contestant would hit BOTH of the 2 $10,000 slips? It's got to be ridiculously high.

The probability of that occurring would be 1,128/230,300, which simplifies to 6/1,225, or about 0.49%. The 230,300 in the denominator represents all of the possible ways you can punch four holes out of 50, and the 1,128 in the numerator represents the ways in which you pick both $10,000 cards.

This hasn't happened when $10,000 was the top prize, I'm guessing. That would be especially painful.

Based on what we know & what has been confirmed (Pluto content + stuff available elsewhere), it hasn't really happened.  Not sure if you mean both $10,000 being hit or someone bailing with $5,000 prior to their $10,000 hole.  Or both.

The closest this has happened would have been a Season 11 episode where someone's last two holes were 5K and then 10K.  However, that player bailed with $500.  He missed out on $5,000, which I think he was definitely not giving up for what would have been the correct gamble at $10,000.  Wrong, but correct

Very painful Punch A Bunch, at least a pretty good ($5000) consolation prize. I've found it interesting each playing of cover up this season, Drew completely ignores the idea behind the theme of each year and just says something like "we've got a great graphics department, here's some of our games on the show", unless he doesn't "get it" yet. Not everybody knows which year race game debuted off hand.

That Punch was just bizarre.

Clock was played really poorly, she pretty much lucked into a win (or you can say initial good pricing - but still, without both prices ending in a nice number like -5, I think she would have flailed).
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Okay thank you.  Personally if it happened back in the day, it might have occurred on an episode where someone won it with at least one punch to claim, but Bob didn't look into the hole.  Only God knows (and maybe the staff) what the amount might have been in those unrevealed amounts.  Nonetheless I haven't seen it or can recall it.  Who knows; maybe as those retro Price episodes drop over the next several years there could be an episode where both were punched out.   I wouldn't bet on it; FWIW there was an episode in Season 21 where someone got both $5K and $10K (fortunately the $10,000 preceded it); the odds of that are probably slim as well.

There's nothing today's winner could've done with his situation, at least without stress.  It's not often that one would've been better off getting a lesser amount, but it might have resulted in twice as much money.  The question is how much less.  I don't know if he walks with $2,500.  $1,000 is probable with 2 punches left.  At least the 4th punch wasn't the $25,000 one.

Speaking of that, 4645D was the episode where someone also hit $5,000 right before $10,000.  However, the guy quit at $500 for his second punch.  Another painful Punch A Bunch, but he wasn't going to get to $10,000 anyway.  Something I brought up elsewhere as it relates to tough luck on the Punchboard.


ETA a response to the following

Very painful Punch A Bunch, at least a pretty good ($5000) consolation prize. I've found it interesting each playing of cover up this season, Drew completely ignores the idea behind the theme of each year and just says something like "we've got a great graphics department, here's some of our games on the show", unless he doesn't "get it" yet. Not everybody knows which year race game debuted off hand.

Meh.  It's probably just Drew being Drew.  He's not great when it comes to detail.  Take Punch for example; while he hasn't said so in a long time, he doesn't remind the players to leave the slip in the hole.  I guess it's common sense & is explained off-camera, but those little things that Carey omits is a knock on him to some.  Overtime, I don't have a problem with it; not a total big deal.

It is surprising though since you'd think he would make mention to it.  Of course, it could be that he is aware, but just doesn't care.  Plus, some people might get sick of him saying something about the Cover Up Wrong Price for each playing

Wow! What a Punch-A-Bunch playing indeed. I'm surprised that Drew didn't explicitly mention (on-air) that the contestant punched the only two spots with $10,000 cards.

Stack The Deck! One of my favorite games! Good call on the $23K, even though the auto wasn't won.

I'd like to see Poker Game brought back, with something relatively expensive (or cash, which needs no lengthy description) as the main prize and 4 "smaller" three-digit priced prizes used in game play. What do you think? :-)

Poker is really confusing as is to explain to the casual player. Even on BigJon's where it's spelled out for you, the casual player isn't going to understand how different poker hands work.

Heh, if Adam had gotten to the first $10,000, this could have been a modern version of Bryan.

Poker Game in Cover Up was a nice surprise. To my memory it's the first retired game featured in the Cover Up years series.

Stack in itself is difficult but only one gimme number is near impossible. Valiant effort though; I would have believed 9xx more than 5xx.
