A rather fantastic show to start the week!  3-1-2 record I say.  In other words, 3 wins, $12,000 won in TTP, and a partial in Master Key.  John, the last of the first four & the eventual showcase winner, went a tad bit too low in Check Game.  He also went low on the Showcase, which led to a rather rare case of winning off of a significant underbid vs someone else that didn’t even go over.

I still was confident that John would win despite his bid on a two prizer.  I wasn’t a fan of Lisa’s bid.  Too safe on very nice showcase with Greece & a 2023 Kia.  Meh, she won $12,000 and had a very decent shot at winning To The Penny.

I was actually scared for Dontrell that he would fall victim to awful luck in Dice Game; outside of the second digit, it was automatic for him two 6s & two correct numbers usually wins more often than not.

As for One Bid, 4 of the 6 winners 1-uped someone else, while two people (John & Christian I believe) that bid $1 had a chance to do the same & would’ve won had they 1-uped the eventual IUFB winner

Would have been a darn shame if Dontrell ended up losing after rolling a 6 and two exact numbers. Corolla was 100% not 26K though, being it was 24k just last week.

OWP was almost a guaranteed win as well. Exerciser's wrong price looked soooo out of place. Plus, the appliances couldn't possibly be 3k+, not for what was on offer.

Penny shocked me honestly. It was really not an easy path to 25K and I was surprised Lisa climbed as high as she did. Those beets looked $$$, $3.99 for Clorox was a decent enough trap, and Solo has no business charging $7.49 for paper plates.

Check Game was a bit nicer in my opinion. John could have written the check for up to $3,498, which is higher than a majority of playings. Too bad he lost, as would I have -- I put down $2,051.

Sadly, 5-digit trips in the showcases are almost guaranteed DSW killers these days. Any DSWs would have to be achieved by luck alone.

That may have been the best penny usage in To the Penny in the game's short history. Lisa did an excellent job using pennies to eliminate prices or not at the right times.

Nah, I think the guy that used each of his pennies on the fifth grocery product tops this one.  LOL!

All joking aside, LiteBulb, I think I've gotta agree here.  While perfection would be in a class of its own, when one is uncertain of the prices, you really can't do much better than this.  I have to check on the second winner; I think what may have been better for Lisa IMO would have been to take a chance on the Beats after eliminating one.  If she's right, then she might have had a better chance at $25,000.  If she's wrong but gets it the second time then she'd still head to the 4th stage with 2 pennies.  If she eliminated one and got to $6,000 with 4 pennies that may have been significant.  Of course the plates were not easy to figure out.

I'd give it an A-, but if you'd ask me in a year, I might say it's an A.  Lisa played the game better than pretty much everyone else in its short history, maybe except for the first winner.  It's easy to comment on it than to play the game.  If it's me, I'd find a way to wipeout on TTP.  I guess that would be impossible outright.  The worst someone could do would be to miss the first one, default to the second stage, miss that, get the freebie, and then blow $3,000 on the third (thanks to 9821 and tris, and tpir04 for clarity; was not 100% sure)

I had to laugh a little when they almost went to commercial break before Drew had to confirm that Lisa was quitting with $12,000.  I guess he had to ask but I don't think it would've been a big deal if he didn't.  Lisa wasn't blowing $12,000

I probably would've done the same as Lisa at the final item, guess and then bail out if it was wrong. You don't always have to be bold.

This recap section doesn't always have to be bold, either. :P (*cough* Master Key *cough*.)

Yeah, I found an ARP, inserted it, and wrote </bing> instead of </strong> at the end.

Dice Game is so tough but rolling a 4 and getting it right and then rolling a 6 pretty much clinched the car.  There was no way it was going to cost 26k.
