Cover Up is back!  Alright!  Not a good playing IMO (as I'm still one to miss the first number on purpose more than not).  Meh on the 1978 game selection.  Yay for It's Optional.  I would've preferred Take Two & Punch A Bunch

The other car game, Pass The Buck, felt like it was a while since its last playing.  Tough luck here for someone that did well with the pricing segment.  Could've been worse than $1,000, but nothing wrong going for it with $3,000 (depends the car IMO)

Pass The Buck! One of my favorite games! Three picks total, so, some suspense! I'm glad the contestant won something in the end.

Remember when all 3 doors were used when playing Most Expensive for three trips? :-D

And 2 of the three elusive games, the first time since 1978 that they ever get a mention on the show.  Their first "appearance" in any form since 1978.

There's been three feeless halves this season so far. All in the first half, and... all have 241 in them. That's a weird blind spot for the lineup writer. On the other hand, Bonkers in the first two with a car game is a good step forward.

I don't usually hate Buck, but watching 3 picks be a loss, including the smart pick in #1, be a LOSE, really annoyed me today.
S5x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Nice to have 3 of the 4 retired games from 78 in the setup. Probably could've squeezed in Telephone if they removed one of the 2 1978 placards.

Really liked the cool all Retired games gimmick for the 1978 theme in Cover. As for Pass the Buck,  :-o. $3K with the first pick, to lose everything with the second and just $1K with the 3rd. Liked seeing ME for 3 trips again, I guess they are really bringing back the 3 prizer for 3 trips gimmick this season.

Holy designer accessories, I genuinely didn't think that anyone on this forum genuinely cared about the purist debate on Plinko.

For reference, here's your post in response to trying to fire Roadgeek Adam in the Season 50 intro thread:

Please get rid of this section of the forum as he's (RG) dissing Plinko A LOT.

In my honest opinion (and according to Roger who I was going to have come here to set the record straight for you all but DIDN'T cause you'd be angry at him TOO.) ALL DISCS touching zero would a (coughs) frack up Ron. Any disc touching ANY MONEY would be fair game.

If you can't do it right GET OFF THIS FAN FORUM! And DON'T come back!

And here's your signature:

Quote
"Bob and I always thought It'd be a real bummer for the contestant if ALL discs in Plinko touched zero." - Roger Dobkowitz via an e-mail he sent to me

Meaning if you don't have anything NICE to say about the game in the recaps DO NOT SAY IT.

Calling a game a "loss" just because the top amount wasn't won is standard procedure for any cash game. Sometimes it's more properly called a bailout, and sometimes we'll be nice and call it a partial win, but it's simply a binary judgment based on if the top amount was won. In that case, no one has ever hit the Plinko center five times, so the game is lost.

There's precedent for this justification in the Barker era; if all the five other games are won, and Plinko had the center slot hit, Bob wouldn't call it a perfect show. He wouldn't do that because it's a loss. The primetime special where the $50k center slot was hit? It wasn't the $250k, so that's by definition a loss.

Calling it a loss isn't being offensive at all toward the contestant. Am I going to call that contestant a loser for "winning" only $56k and change? No. We're just saying the top amount wasn't won. You're getting worked up over a four-letter word, under the pretense that Roger said that nothing won is a bummer. Roger never said that less than $25,000/$50,000 was a loss; he just said in that email that complete wipeouts suck. And they do.

Since there is evidence on the show that the purist definition can be correct, I can be doing it right by saying anything below $50k is a loss. And since you don't seem like you can take discourse properly, calling for our long-running recapper for 7-8 seasons to get banned, simply because he doesn't want to offend the purist crowd (a view that he himself partially disagrees with), you can get off this fan forum. There's tasteful debate, which I'm willing to have, but then there's screaming at someone for not agreeing with you on something so trivial, which is the path this is going to go down.

Who cares how the game result is worded within a PIR recap?  It's totally not a big deal, period!


Adam is the re-capper, not you.  Not me or anyone else.  If a loss is how he wants to put the PG result is, that is okay.  No one cares.  The contestants on the show and the viewers know what was won and what wasn't.  When someone wins a fairly decent amount of money, they really aren't concerned that they "lost" the game or if it's a partial loss or bailout.  It's not a bailout because Plinko doesn't have a quitting option.

The rules of Plinko and really any cash game is simple.  It's a win when the announced prize is reached & won.  $50,000 for Plinko, $10,000 for Grand Game, $25,000 for Punch a Bunch and so on.  Richard didn't reach 50K, so it's a loss.  That is the show rule, not someone else's discretion.

The fact is, I think there should be an additional result instead of Win or Loss and nothing else, but winning is only official if the chip hits the center five times.  For this show, a LOSS makes sense.  $2,000 is nice for a lot of people even in 2021, but that's nowhere near any sorta partial.  In the past, I think Adam has indicated $10,000 as being hit.  Past re-cappers have marked it down as a win (maybe for FPG purposes), but that is mentioned within a recap when someone hits the center during episodes that include Plinko

I was notified of this while making my last delivery and I've had time to think out a response. Let's keep one philosophy in mind: "keep it simple, stupid." The idea of win, loss and bailout being the only 3 options I use are simple. You lost the advertised prize, you won the advertised prize, you bailed out before  you won the advertised prize. I have never use partial wins because it's not simple. Am I openly hypocritical by doing Plinko like this to satisfy and not upset purists while marking Time totals >$10,000 a win? Sure. There's one major difference: no one complains about how I declare Time. No one ever has.

My choice of wording is not out to offend anyone. They are contestants on a game show winning (or losing) chances of life-altering prizes. They also happen to be playing on a game show that is my favourite of all options. I am not likely ever to be a contestant on it because I don't meet their contestant criteria and never will. That being said, I love recapping this, a job I do for free and have for 8 seasons because I want to enjoy the game show I love and I enjoy doing it. I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't think I enjoyed it. The Price is Right is really the only non-sports TV show I have watched daily for several years because of this job.

My decisions are not going to satisfy everyone.  We also will have to live with that.  I don't want people fighting on this forum over it and that's why I do this approach with Plinko. As for the Roger stuff. He is a member on this site, he lurks. I've also made it abundantly clear that I don't really agree with his attitude on things in the last 5 or 6 years. What he says does not influence me at all.

Can we please get back to focusing on the show rather than how I recap the show?

I feel that it's once again necessary to point out that officially, pricing game outcomes do not have to be categorized as win, loss, bailout, draw, forfeit, or any other terminology that indicates a pricing game's success over time in awarding prizes. For the purposes of the rules of the show, all that matters is the dollar value of what each contestant receives in each pricing game, and only because that affects the order in the Showcase Showdown and Showcase.

Yes, TPIR keeps tack of success rates in each of the pricing games, because it's useful and interesting to know how frequently the games produce happy moments. These stats are only official in the sense that somebody at TPIR is tracking them. They have absolutely no bearing on the show itself. Nobody's fact-checking Drew when he assures Check-Out contestants that the game is won a lot of the time.

Yes, for all-or-nothing games like Double Prices, Grocery Game, One Away, etc., etc., the show's internal stats use the terms "win" and "loss" because it's the most straightforward terminology to use. But take, for example, Any Number. When I kept track of Any Number's stats, the spreadsheet for that game didn't use the words "win" or "loss" at all. The only three categories were "car," "middle," and "piggy bank."

"Perfect show" is an unofficial designation that has no bearing on the outcome of the episode. Nothing special happens to the contestants if a show is declared "perfect." More importantly, the opposite of perfection is not failure. If a contestant wins $2,000 in Plinko (or $600 or $41,000 or whatever), Drew is not going to point at them and say, "Loser! You lost! Your failure will be another shameful mark in Plinko's dark history! Take your imperfect Plinko score and leave my sight!"

(Although I'd totally watch if Drew did that.)

So please do not say that according to the show, if the top prize isn't won, it's considered a loss. That is not true.

That said, Golden-Road.net recaps are not official show recaps, so it doesn't much matter what terminology is used. It would look pretty silly on this site if Adam wrote "CAR" and "PIGGY BANK" instead of "WIN" or "LOSS." As far as the show is concerned, each discrete pricing game outcome has no bearing on the rest of the episode (other than contestants' winnings totals), so the terminology in an episode recap -- and drawing the lines as to when that terminology is used -- is up to the individual recapping the episode.

I'm really not a big fan of the 3 trip showcases, You have to commit lot of time to take them.  Fremantle's travel agents must have had a very busy day because these 3-trippers were taped on the very same day (November 7) -- Once in Most Expensive and then the traditional showcase format.
