Recap for May 15, 1975 (1414D)
« on: May 02, 2022, 09:59:48 PM »
A fortune in fabulous prizes may go to these people today if they know when The Price is Right!

Patricia, Beverly, Denise and Ronald, come on down! You are the first four contestants on The Price is Right!

ITEM UP FOR BIDS:
Samsonite Cushionaire Outdoor Furniture

BIDS:
Ronald- 250
Denise- 199
Beverly- 300
Patricia- 251

The Actual Retail Price is $309.

Beverly will win a Chevrolet Nova Hatchback by playing CARD GAME!
In CARD GAME, the goal is to make a bid on the car that is within a certain range below the actual price of the car. First, the contestant draws a card from a special deck of seven cards to determine how close they must come to the car's price without going over. The values in that deck include values from $200-$1,000. Then the contestant is asked to draw cards from a standard deck of oversized playing cards. The cards drawn are used to increase the contestant's bid: Number cards add the face value multiplied by $100 to the bid, while face cards (Jack, Queen, King), like tens, are each worth $1,000. Contestants may draw as many cards as they want until they believe their bid is within the required range. Aces are wild in this game if a contestant draws an ace, they can add any value they wish to their bid.

Beverly's Value Card is $300- her bid must be within $300 without going over.

Her Opening Bid is The King of Spades- $1,000
BID 2: 9 of Diamonds- $900- $1,900
BID 3: Queen of Diamonds- $1000- $2,900
BID 4: 3 of Diamonds- $300- $3,200. Beverly decides to stop right there.

She has a bid of $3,200.

If the Grocery Game contestant had bought just one of the dog treats at that point, her total would have been $6.55, which would have allowed her to buy one of the mushrooms for 37 cents and get the win (at $6.92).
