CSS -- Chatroom Showcase Showoff / CSS Results for 11/22/2017 (Game 45)
« Last post by Wayoshi on Today at 03:18:16 PM »
Someone in chat called this a Big One in the aftermath of today's ARPs. While that really isn't true looking at the sheet, the overs have a signifcant amount of pain - even more than you'd expect out of a 2xx ARP. 7 WSDs on the board, including the absolute minimum you can go over by - one dollar - and a DSWSD. And all this on the double values Thanksgiving show... There's not much to break down here - I will say that game rooms have been cheaper lately, and this one certainly looked cheap.

As far as the big winners of this CSS, they're priac & I with DSWs that count. I nearly managed to hard/soft, but I'll take a second straight win along with some cash.

An alright show.
Interesting to note , Texas and Oklahoma is the only Rivalry ( Not Team ) to appear on all 3 College Rivals shows.
When it comes to 1/2 Off , was that the 1st time Two of the Starting prices used were under $10?

The TALK Is Right / Re: NFL Rivalry Episode Idea

Eagles would absolutely have to be paired with the Cowboys, no question. I would also pair the Seahawks with the 49ers. Steelers-Ravens, no doubt. The others seem to be fine, but those three stand out as big-time rivals. You could even have corss-conference matchups, doesn't necessarily have to be within division. Think Giants-Jets, for example. We saw the Notre Dame-USC pairing, which obviously isn't in conference.

My only problem is that $5,000 seems like a little much for a "consolation" prize.  On the College Rivals episodes, they did $1,000 as the prize for the rival.

Out In Left Field / Re: Yet Another Pricing Game Idea: Price Pyramid
« Last post by tpir7215 on Today at 02:19:55 PM »
The pyramid motif is cute—it’s unlike any other theme seen on the show.

Actually, I really like this. It’s original, it’s interesting, it’s pretty easy to understand, it’s got a fun theme. Fortune Hunter was a neat game that was gone too soon IMO and I’d be happy to see the clues brought back in another pricing game. And as you've described it, I really want to see the visuals—I’d love to see the show design a hieroglyphic "coffee maker" or "hair trimmer". The theme brings back memories of the old showcase sketches. You've even made the reveals and buttons fit the theme. Well done.

Since you asked for us to pick nits:

I’m not a big fan of cutting the prizes in half—a good chunk of the excitement is gone if the “big prize” is out of play as soon as you make a mistake. I’d suggest offering a free mistake, and picking one top prize and settling on it.

Make sure you have a good variety of clues. “Most expensive” and “least expensive” are obvious choices. “Starts with 9” is probably fair game. At the same time don’t make them too obscure; I know you mean the last one to be difficult, but “ends with an 8” is pretty much a blind guess.

Maybe for the final one you could ask the price straight up. “Which one is $28?” It could help add some closure since we’ve been guessing at the prices the whole time without knowing the complete answers.

Mind you, I’m being nitpicky on a concept I actually really like. Of the PG ideas you’ve submitted so far, gotta say this one’s my favorite. Nicely done.

With the clues, I do plan on having ones besides least/most expensive for the higher levels.  I'm thinking of putting these as the clues for each level (it's not final though):
$1,000:
-Least/most expensive
$2,000:
-Between two amounts ($20 margin and both inclusive, i.e., the prize that is $50 would be correct for between $30 and $50)
$5,000:
-Starts with X
-Between two amounts ($10 margin and both inclusive again)
$20,000:
-Ends with X
-Does NOT contain X as digit (will not ask for a digit)
-Priced at exactly X% of most expensive prize (only used if least expensive prize is asked for at beginning)
-Priced at exactly X dollars (like you suggested)

And as for the top prize being gone as soon as you make a mistake, Plinko, Pay the Rent, Hot Seat, and Time is Money also follow that, yet we're all fine with that.

And I'm currently working on the visuals, including the intro and winning graphics.  I'll post the visuals/graphics when they're done.

In the meantime, thank you for evaluating my latest pricing game idea.  If you want, you can actually use it in a Host Your Own show should HYO come back.

The TALK Is Right / NFL Rivalry Episode Idea
« Last post by Teddy on Today at 02:11:26 PM »
Since CBS also airs the NFL on Sundays (and Thursday nights, during the first half of the season), I just thought up this new idea for a Rivalry episode that would air on the Friday before the Super Bowl. It would feature a pair of rival fans being called down, and the IUFB winner would then be called up on stage with the rival fan being sent back to the audience. If the IUFB winner loses his/her PG, then the rival will get $5,000 as a consolation prize.

I'm thinking the following pairs:

  • 49ers-Rams
  • Bears-Packers
  • Bengals-Browns
  • Bills-Dolphins
  • Broncos-Chiefs
  • Buccaneers-Saints
  • Cardinals-Seahawks
  • Chargers-Raiders
  • Colts-Jaguars
  • Cowboys-Redskins
  • Eagles-Giants
  • Falcons-Panthers
  • Jets-Patriots
  • Lions-Vikings
  • Ravens-Steelers
  • Texans-Titans

I know this is not exactly a perfect list, but there are other pairings that could be done. Any suggestions?

Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 11/21/2017
« Last post by SteveGavazzi on Today at 02:06:37 PM »
Hi Lo was probably supposed to be lost, but it certainly wasn't supposed to be lost the way it was lost.

I have to take issue with the sixth Item up for Bids.  I don't think most family game nights include a case of poker chips. :P

The nastiness of this site and some of its moderators can be summed up in one word: Weedsville.

Gee, I'm disappointed.  I thought I was the one you were insulting here, but I live in Weedville, so it must be someone else.

The reason I have not  been here for, more or less, a decade.

Given that the last time you were here, your post was edited to remove you insulting someone who was fighting cancer, I'm going to guess nobody missed you.

While he has a relative on the Goodson/Todman credit roll

What in the blue hell are you babbling about?

That was a great twist to the Contestant's Row proceedings: having two rivals called down at the same time, and then having the winner's opponent sit in the audience again, with $1,000 being awarded to the opponent if the winner then lost the ensuing PG. I think that TPIR should do this for their Super Bowl special in 2019, as that would be the next edition to air on CBS, IIRC.

I had a feeling that the pies should've been selected in Vend-O-Price, and that the computer had the one wrong price. But this was a well-executed show indeed.
