Argh, when you bid $175 on cosmetics you certainly are justified in being limo bait. Maria is here to sail the seven seas on her way to Selby-on-the-Bay, Maryland, but my limos don't float, so we need to break out the amphibious vehicles. Or she can win here and save my union laborers a lot of work.

Alright, everyone, youíve heard of NCFC games, but get ready for Ö car-for-a-non-car games?!

I definitely donít hate it, though I definitely scratched my head once Lucky Seven was revealed. This appears to be the first time in the gameís 49-year history in which it hasnít been played for a car, and the first time in almost 30 years that itís been played for a prize worth less than $10,000.

Also, apart from Golden Road being played for trailers, I genuinely cannot think of any car games that werenít played for a car.

Playing car games for a (relatively nice) boat was a thing that occasionally happened through the 80's.

Brad Francini's old site had a few pics of those games, including Money Game played for a boat with special boat graphics.

"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

Awesome Halloween special, and great show in general!  While I initially thought/figured that they could've played Lucky Seven for the Volkswagen Tiguan and Push Over for the boat, it was neat seeing that for the former.  First 4-digit playing since the debut of the Times font.  Very friendly setup of course.

In yet another "in the moment" take, I said Roceo's Money Game playing was worse than the last one.  It wasn't as bad but it's unfortunate when someone picks a number that, if you thought really hard, you'd think twice before choosing something else.  Not an easy price though.

We'll see how George's voice holds up going forward.  Rather amazing he stayed in character throughout the entire show!

003P  Aug 28 1986  TPIR Special  Clock Game  Hole in One  Money Game (boat)  Race Game  Punch a Bunch  One Away

The 3rd episode of the show ever (that aired) also did it:

0013R    1  Sep 08 1972  Sep 06 1972       Grocery Game     Bullseye I (boat)      Double Prices

There are also a couple instances of syndicated episodes playing around with it, mostly again in experimental Season 1:

Code: [Select]
11 lineups found in SYNDICATED for any BOATABLE game played in any slot, with the "C" flag

PROD    S                     PG1                     PG2                PG3
004N    1       Any Number (boat)              Bonus Game  Double Prices ($)

022N    1       Any Number (boat)            Grocery Game     Most Expensive
028N    1       Any Number (boat)            Grocery Game     Most Expensive
030N    1       Any Number (boat)      Grocery Game (car)     Most Expensive
034N    1       Any Number (boat)            Grocery Game     Most Expensive
037N    1        Bonus Game (car)       Any Number (boat)         Clock Game
039N    1              Bonus Game       Any Number (boat)         Clock Game
180N    5  Five Price Tags (boat)              Any Number      1 Right Price

Finally, Golden Road had a cabin cruiser in 18 playings, although the practice ended in 2008.

Nonetheless to all the above stats, it's still bizarre to see it today. I get they had to do a L7 type of reveal due to Tuggs, but did they really have to play L7 just because of that? Why not H-L with a classic pushed out game reveal? It was also, in principle, unfair for the contestant to have to price a phone on top of the boat.

Finally, we get two Bayliners in SCs a week, but couldn't offer it in a PG today? The budget kind of mocks that...

They also still have the graphics for Money Game for a boat as it once appeared during an April Fools show.




The Golden Gallery also has images of another boat design.

I love L7 being played for a very nice four digit prize.

L7 for a car with the first digit given isn't so easy and especially moreso now. Cars seem to be so variable in price anymore, especially with supply shortages, it seems very hard to nail down that second number and give the contestant a fighting chance to win on the harder third, fourth, and fifth numbers.

One of the things about watching the Barker era that has stood out to me is how simple it was to tie the first digit of the car to a year and the type of the car/options on the car because it could only be so many things and was usually fairly obvious. The type of car then usually directed where the second number would fall, so it caused the third and fourth numbers to decide if the game was to be won or lost.

Tl;dr: four digit L7 gives the contestant a much better chance to win because you're really only stumped on two numbers instead of three. First digit given away for cars made the game harder, and that's especially true in 2022.

Conclusion: I hope this is a change that stays. I LOVED it.

In retrospect, they shouldn't have placed the microphone hook over the dominant hand of the host.

I suppose that if an LED HDTV is capable of rendering the color brown (which it had better be), I shouldn't have been surprised that they were able to make the audience pods, Contestants' Row borders, and home base wall brown. But I've never seen LEDs used to turn a set brown, so that was a fun change of pace.

When they were lighting our news studio, I learned there are different types of LED strips: RGB, RGBW, RGBA, and RGBWA...red, green, blue, white, and amber. With the amber color, you can recreate yellows, oranges, and browns better. But I agree, that was a nice brown! Very 70s TNPiR.  :-)

Lucky $even was one of the coolest things the show has ever done.  I'm not even sure what had me geeking out the most -- the boat, the Tugboat pulling the boat, or an honest to God 4-digit car game in 2022.  It's been almost half an hour since I finished watching the fifth game, and I'm still dumbfounded.

Also, apart from Golden Road being played for trailers, I genuinely cannot think of any car games that werenít played for a car.

They actually used to do this with Money Game on occasion back in the '80s and '90s...and just like today, it didn't count as a car game on those episodes.

They also still have the graphics for Money Game for a boat as it once appeared during an April Fools show.

Fun fact:  Those actually aren't Money Game's regular boat graphics.  They were made specifically for that episode.

That was actually a cool presentation for a 4-digit Lucky $even! I never would've seen that coming, nor have I ever seen it on live TV at all, but I liked it!

And we didn't have to worry as much about a Push Over car playing in which someone stops at the first price...unless they thought it was a luxury car. :roll:
