Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 11/17/2017

This was a wonderful show.

Plinko AND Hole in One in one lineup? Plus Bonkers, Line 'Em Up, and Flip Flop? They got every "contestant interacts with the prop" game they could, plus Do the Math.

Drew was also on fire with his hosting today--he was having a ball with the contestants. He had great cracks about needing to invent a bowling game, the crack about James, about everything. Do The Math in particular was a blast to watch in spite of the loss--he cared about the contestant, he cared about the prizes, and he had great patter keeping the game exciting. And to think that was one of the "boring" games in this lineup! This wasn't Drew playing games and getting through the show--this was Drew making stars out of Kenneth the retiree and Cassidy the Texas girl who hates math and Nayiri who's having the luckiest day ever...

This one was a keeper for sure. Also, Kenneth was such a fun contestant to watch.

hmm.bowling game..eh...Super Ball anyone ???

I can see Drew having a blast with the Super Ball prop. I'd love to see the crew try to make it work.

Barring that, I'd also be totally fine with Car Pong coming to TPIR as a full-fledged pricing game--It recycles the fun of Super Ball but with the advantages of being faster paced and doesn't require going back and forth between the pricing and the ball-throwing.

Out In Left Field / Re: 2017 MLB Season

Jose Altuve win the AL MVP and Giancarlo Stanton wins the NL MVP.  There was height history as Altuve becomes the shortest player to win MVP while Stanton is the tallest to win MVP as well.
What are the odds of that happening? That was definitely history in the making!

Suddenly, that Moon Over Parma cue starts to play in my head!

Bouncing shots that go in the hole are always fun to watch (almost as much as the center slot being hit in Plinko), and only in Hole in One do you get to see that. Nice recovery from the first two games: Do the Math was pretty much evil, and Bonkers wasn't any better.

I could see Mystery Price get a makeover.

I've always thought Mystery Price was a great game, and not too complicated a game, but a game that's very hard to explain succinctly. I think it would require a strong visual element that kind of makes the game self-explanatory, lest Drew stumble over the rules for 2 minutes and leave the contestant utterly confused.

Great episode, Drew was having a blast, and I can't wait to see that bowling game next year that Drew requested.

While 985 and Cephas jockey for points up top, cash has become another two-horse race between 2K & myself. Next leaderboard will be up after Cyber Monday, as we'll only have 4 games in the next two weeks.

CSS -- Chatroom Showcase Showoff / CSS Results for 11/17/2017 (Game 42)

Today was definitely a file under L for Legitimate Garfing moment. Bora Bora at this particular hotel has always been really expensive... but not obscenely expensive (SIGNIFICANTLY more than the BOAT, most likely) as it seems to be this season. This would be a TGIF moment as well, but quite a few of us got tripped up on 1 and a new Australia (I'm pretty annoyed to be in the red today, personally).

2K's hard DSW was by far the only A raw, the only one to even breach 40 on 2 - 2nd place was Kev with an 83, then 985 with an 80. It was that type of day, but again on a Friday there is some reprieve.

Easy Do the Math, I think Cassidy just didn't really understand it.

Not sure why Corletta kept the first number at higher each guess in Bonkers. Besides the 5, all the numbers followed the odds.

The pasta was a somewhat easy first item to place in Hole in One and the peas were definitely next, but I was thinking cat treats third also. I was surprised the vinegar wasn't more. The shave cream and tarnish remover were a toss-up for the item to place last. At least she made the putt!
