Two fantastic bids in the showcase. Especially on one with two cars.

I completely agree.  Two great bids on two awesome showcases.  While it's a lot easier said than done, as always, I'm here saying if only Alan bid 28,500...

Nonetheless, it was a great ending to a show that started off pretty well, but then fell the other way in terms of results.  Speaking of starts, tough break in 5 Price Tags.  I wonder how many people, if anyone, would've been more bummed about missing out on a smores maker over an automobile.  All joking aside, still a tough loss.  Ditto with Dice Game.  Not much you can do when you roll a 3/4 for the 3rd/4th digit outside of knowledge of the car you're playing for

I honestly don't believe anyone would more bummed out about losing the s'mores maker than the car. Even if you love s'mores, you could pretty easily buy your own maker. Small prizes are called SMALL prizes for a reason.

 
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.
