Well, let's see... there's the cool higher or lower pricing, but quite honestly, it's usually made a lot easier here than in Bonus Game or Shell Game. But it doesn't really matter, 'cause that's not really the point of the game, anyway, and quite honestly, winning 4 punches instead of 3 punches isn't likely to make too big a difference, anyway. As opposed to, say, Plinko, where winning even one additional Plinko chip can make a huge difference in the winnings.
No, the main attraction here is the punching--always nice to see a good punch to the Kleenex hole coverings! But more importantly, we get Bob's reveal of the slips, which can often be something great to behold, as Bob builds up what's in the slips, and goes over the possibilities, and just in general kills the contestans with the suspense! Great!
As for the set change... well, the old set was better. We have way too many pastel cash games--four out of five--but honestly, this one doesn't bother me as much as some of the other pastel sets. At least with the new set, they finally came up with a set piece to rest the giant $10,000 bill on, as opposed to the old generic stand they previously used. And before then, they'd even just have Janice stand holding it the whole game!
On the other hand, they should've still used the turntable reveal. I see no reason they had to quit using that when they changed the set for the game.
I wonder if they decided to make the set change at least partially so people would know the name of the game. I had never even realized the game wasn't actually named Punchboard myself until after the set change. In my defense, though, the true name was rarely shown on camera, while Punchboard always was, and it's not like Bob hardly ever called it Punch a Bunch, either.
9 out of 10 on the old scale.
