Atinale al Precio question/list
« on: July 04, 2007, 11:30:25 PM »
I watched Marco Antonio Regil's Atinale al Precio montages last night, and I found myself really enjoying the program.  I got to wondering today what the games played on that version were, as well as what ehy were called.  Of course, being a dork, I then proceeded to create as complete a list of exactly that as I could.  What you see below lists first the games I know were played, then their Mexican names if I know them, and then the translations of their Mexican names if I was able to translate them.

Please pardon the lack of accent marks.

Any Number -- Digito Aventura -- Digit Adventure
Double Prices -- Con Melon o con Sandia -- With Canteloupe or Watermelon (Each price is associated with a fruit.)
Clock Game -- El Tiempo Es Oro -- Time Is Golden
Five Price Tags -- Cinco Precios -- Five Prices
Money Game -- De Par en Par -- Wide Open
Give or Keep -- Toma o De -- Keep or Give
Range Game -- ????? -- ?????
Lucky $even -- Trece de la Suerte -- Lucky Thirteen (loosely translated)
Temptation -- Tentacion -- Temptation
Shell Game -- ¿Donde Esta la Bolita? -- Where's the Ball?
Card Game -- Dame Carta -- Give Me a Card (A guess -- it's the closest I can come to something that makes sense.)
Race Game -- ????? -- Race the Clock (A guess based on the part of the logo I could see.)
Ten Chances -- Te Doy Diez -- I Give You Ten
Golden Road -- Al Final de Arco Iris -- At the End of the Rainbow
Poker Game -- ????? -- ?????
3 Strikes -- ????? -- ?????
Cliff Hangers -- ????? -- ?????
Safe Crackers -- ????? -- ?????
Dice Game -- ????? -- ?????
Bullseye -- Dale al Centro -- Hit the Center
Hole in One -- Hoyo en Uno o Dos -- Hole in One or Two
Squeeze Play -- El Apreton -- The Squeeze (Brad Francini's translation is wrong.)
Secret "X" -- ????? -- ?????
Punch a Bunch -- 4 Rounds -- 4 Rounds (The game appears to be themed around boxing.)
Penny Ante -- Cuestion Centavos -- Cent Question (A guess -- it's the closest I can come to something that makes sense.)
Barker's Bargain Bar -- La Ganga -- The Bargain
Grand Game -- Cero a la Derecha -- Zero to the Right
Now....and Then -- ????? -- ?????
Super Ball!! -- ????? (I can't read the logo) -- ?????
Plinko -- Plinko -- Plinko
One Away -- Uno Arriba o Uno Abajo -- One Above or One Below
Pathfinder -- ????? (I can't read the logo) -- The Hunters of (something)
Spelling Bee -- El Panal -- The Honeycomb
Make Your Move -- La Movida -- The Action
2 for the Price of 1 -- El Revoltijo -- The Jumble
Pick-a-Number -- ????? -- ?????
Switch? -- ????? -- ?????
Side by Side -- Para un Lado o para el Otro -- For One Side or the Other
Freeze Frame -- ????? -- ?????
Eazy az 1 2 3 -- 1 2 3 -- 1 2 3
It's in the Bag -- Echatelo a la Bolsa -- Put It in the Bag
Line em Up -- La Linea de la Fortuna -- The Line of Luck

If anyone knows any more games or name translations, by all means, add them to this thread!

Oh, and I also have a question.  On this page of Marco's Atinale galleries, there's a picture of a game whose set looks like a bunch of dominoes, and I have no idea what it is.  Anyone else know?

Looks like the combinations of the dominoes suggest the price of something; as for the game itself, I'm having all kinds of trouble finding it.  Heck, I can't find it on Wikipedia.

Based on what I could read, Pathfinder is "Los Cazadores del Precio Perdido" or "The Hunters of the Lost Price". As for Cliff Hangers I could only see the final word which was Siniestra, gonna take a guess it's "La Caida Siniestra" or "The Sinister Fall", something like that.

I believe the domino game is Flip Flop.

"Cuestion Centavos" doesn't make much sense. I think it could be "Cuestion de Centavos", which would mean "A Question (as in a matter) of Cents".

"De Par en Par" means "In Pairs", or maybe more closely "Two by Two".

"La movida" means both "the movement" and "wheeling and dealing", so it appears to be a pun kind of thing.

"Dame carta" you got exactly right, though, Steve. You might even call it "Hit Me".
"Atinale el precio" moment: Contestant Laila has jumped into Marco's arms and taken his microphone.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"

That makes a hell of a lot more sense that what my Spanish-to-English dictionary said it meant.

Steve, give me a couple of days, and I can get the rest of the names of the Pricing Games. And it's spanish meaning!

For "gato encerrado", I can't think of an English equivalent, but it means "a cat locked-up". You've heard of letting the cat out of the bag; well, this is what you say when you suspect a cat's in the bag and needs to be let out. In other words, a secret being kept from you.

I'm sure that the one with the dominoes would make a good pricing game if I knew what it is.

With all due respect, that's a rather idiotic thing to say.  You're making a huge assumption about something you freely admit you know nothing about.
