Title: Path to Perfection II: 123123123's PG Gauntlet (S2, E7)
Post by: 123123123 on September 26, 2021, 06:47:25 PM
The results from the first PG gauntlet were less than stellar, if you were a player that is. It's now time to start the long road to redemption!

Starting this Wednesday afternoon (9/29), the Numbers studio will once again open its doors to all contestants who want to try their luck.

Just like a normal show there will be 6 pricing games, but no IUFBs and a single showcase to bid on Range Game style.

Unlike a normal show though, all contestants will play all the pricing games at the same time. If you keep winning, you keep playing for a shot at perfect show bragging rights. But the moment you lose a game, you'll be immediately escorted out of the building, deemed a poor pricer.

The show keeps going until someone makes it to the end and wins the showcase, or all players are eliminated.

My feelings remain unchanged from last show. Will it be fun? I sure hope so. Will it be easy? Not a chance, as the crew fully expects most of you to flame out before the first commercial break  :lol:

But I love being proved wrong, so come one and all and flex your pricing muscles!

Since everyone who joins will play, no need for an elaborate sign up, but please give a simple "I'm in" so I know who's a part of it

1233: Welcome everyone, or welcome back I should say since I remember most of your names from last time.

Just as a refresher, the goal is to win early and win often. Keep winning and you can't go wrong.

Now since we basically broke into the studio after hours to do this, it's only fitting that we have you trying to break into the Safe Crackers safe to start the night. Mr. Announcer, open that safe so we can see the spoils within.


Announcer: OK, now everyone follow along carefully, like everything else in these shows, its an odd one. First, you have a chance to win...


{opens vault door}

...a brand new vault!!

(https://i.imgur.com/xHBb43z.png)

This 6' tall maroon gun vault has a matte brown finish and has an electronic dial lock!

Now behind the left door of the gun safe we have...

{opens left door}

...$1,500 in $1 bills to make it look more impressive than normal!!

And finally behind the right door we have...

{opens right door}

...a biometric safe!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/mDCEjSs.png)

This biometric safe measures 15″x 11.5″ x 11.6″, crafted from rugged carbon steel and is able to store up to 20 unique fingerprints for entry!!

And this is a great prize package worth...$8,789!!!


{applause as the safe is locked up}


(https://i.imgur.com/JdBeA0m.png)

1233: I want to emphasize you only have to open the big safe to win everything  :-)

Now the combination of this giant safe is the same as the price of the small biometric safe. The numbers in the price are 0, 3 and 6 and the numbers do not repeat.

Now everyone, use you best judgement and tell me the right combo to get into the safe. You have about 24 hours and best of luck!

1233: Did you guys make some kind of pact before you came in? Or was it that simple? Either way I like it, win as a crew, lose as a crew.

Normally, Iíd call one of you over, but Iíll handle it this one time

{cheers}


Nice! I know it technically isn't open, but let's trust the audio cues on this one.  :-D

Great start to the day! Youíve all survived the ban hammer. At the very least, you'll all go home with some safes for your valuables. But hopefully we can win more goodies for you all to store in there.

Weíll just stay put here, and the next game will start shortly!

As some of you may have noticed, we haven't moved from this particular spot on stage. I think that's gives a great clue as to what were gonna play next, and an even better clue as to what's behind this door!

Mr. Announcer, tell them the good news!


Announcer: You might have spoiled it a bit much there, bud. But behind that door, we do have...



{door 2 opens}


...a BRAND NEW CAR!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/ZZsIg8H.png)

It's the 2022 Kia Stinger GT-Line, This deep blue vehicle comes with all the standard equipment as well as a 8-speed auto transmission, sun and shine package, floor mats and cargo net. The Kia Stinger!!!



{cheers and applause as tags are rolled out}


(https://i.imgur.com/URouHzT.png)

1233: OK, we have the right price for the Stinger somewhere amongst these Five Price Tags, but don't worry about that for now.



{rolls out tags, rolls in small prizes}


Just focus on winning as many choices with these small items. Mr. Announcer, if you'd please?


(https://i.imgur.com/znr1PBA.png)

Announcer: First, we have this 4L microwavable cooking container that has a perforated lid and is made of BPA free plastic.

Next, this cordless curling iron heats up to 400F, has a 3 hour charge time and probably won't burn your hair off

This soil tester tests for the moisture, light and pH of any soil you can dig up

And finally, this 10 inch 18V orbital buffer comes with a charger and is great for bowling alleys and balding heads



{applause}


(https://i.imgur.com/mZ2RNOT.png)

1233: For the sake of clarity, the prices above follow the product's order in the description (cooker, curling iron, soil meter, buffer), The graphics department apologizes for not just having the products listed with their fakes like a competent show would  :-)

Now I would like you all of to give my all your guesses on the small prizes and the order in which you would pick the car prices, should you be lucky enough to get any. Best of luck!

1233: {points to Plinkoman} Why don't you step over and play for the group?



{steps over}


You really don't think I lied to you once and put one fake price in there? Let's see if your trust will be rewarded.


Is the cooker actually $24?



{pulls tab}

Ok, well just shake it off. Is the curling iron $56?



{pulls tab}

There you go, at least one shot at the car. Now is the soil meter/reader/thingy $16?



{pulls tab}


(https://i.imgur.com/F1a03d4.png)

Another pick earned, let's make it 3 out of 4. The buffer is...



{pulls tab}

(https://i.imgur.com/YFdxgHK.png)

{buzz}

...not $80, but 2 picks for you isn't bad.



{rolls out tags}

(https://i.imgur.com/URouHzT.png)

Now Plinkoman, we are in an familiar situation somehow.

You chose $36,280 as your first choice and, based on everyone choices, if that's right you will be the lone survivor of the game, just like last episode. I don't know how this keeps being the case, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Is the price of that car $36,280!?!



{pulls tag}



(https://i.imgur.com/CB25dBW.png)

{buzz}

And that's why we don't get ahead of ourselves  :-)

Now we need the price to be $38,725 in the worst way possible.

..2...






3!!!

{ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}

YES! Well played indeed. We had the full spectrum of results on that one, two players knew the car price right away but struck out on the small prizes, while we had JhayPrice pull it out with only one pick.

All of you that missed out, thank you for playing and hoped you had fun. The rest of you we have another great game coming up soon!!

What is the next prize, Mr. Announcer?

{appears on door 4}


...a wonderful trip to Ghana!!!

You and 2 guests will fly round trip from Los Angeles to Accra, where you will stay 6 nights in a king size room at Kempinski Hotel, Gold Coast City. From here, you will be within walking distance of both the Independence Arch and the Elmina Castle. A great prize worth...$4,908!!!



(https://i.imgur.com/HRRg8UN.png)

{cheers}

1233: Wow, I'm equal parts surprised its the first West African trip we offered and jealous that I don't get to go.

Either of you could win that awesome trip playing Check-Out, as long as you can give me the total of these 5 groceries within $2 above or below the actual total.

Now let's hear about the products in the game today, shall we?


(https://i.imgur.com/qSDDlhl.png)

Announcer: First, we have 16 fluid ounces of mocha flavored creamer to stir into your coffee

Then, we have a 1 lb box of granulated sugar to maybe stir into your coffee

Next is a 9.6 oz share size bag of coffee nut candies to possibly stir into your coffee

We also have a 100 ct package of coffee filters to probably not stir into your coffee

And finally is a 15 fluid ounce can of french vanilla flavored energy drink to definitely not stir into your coffee.

There you go, Numbers!


1233: I'd be lying if I said I knew anything about coffee and such, but I don't need to.

I just need you two to give me your guesses for each price, best of luck!

creamer: $2.29
sugar: $1.59
candies: $2.99
filters: $4.59
drink: $2.99

1233: Looks like 9821 guessed $12.50 for the creamer and refused to bid on the other 4. Bold strategy, but don't know how good that'll look on film  :lol:

So let's go ahead and throw JhayPrice's total up on the board.


(https://i.imgur.com/QEjcaBg.png)

$14.45. Now you said the creamer was $2.29, the actual price is...



{bag rises}

(https://i.imgur.com/20u4f56.png)

{ding}

What a wonderful start, only a dime off. Now the sugar, you said $1.59 and it's actually...


{bag rises}

(https://i.imgur.com/HxNoHyx.png)

{ding}

Another dime off, keep it going. Now the candy you said $2.99, it comes in at...


{bag rises}

(https://i.imgur.com/KRie0RI.png)

{ding}

Ouch, that's a bit off, but it not done yet. You pegged the filters at $4.59, the real price is...


{bag rises}

(https://i.imgur.com/5Pns58f.png)

{ding}

That's a big difference, but this might actually be great for both of you.

9821, if the energy drink isn't more than $5, you're a winner. JhayPrice, if the drink is $2.99 like you said, you're a winner. I have a great feeling about this. What is the price of that drink?




{bag rises}

(https://i.imgur.com/bbhe8WA.png)

...for a difference of...

(https://i.imgur.com/zq22wfC.png)

{ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}

Jhay, are you kidding me right now!?! $2.00 on the nose! This, plus the one pick magic in 5PT, I suggest getting a lotto ticket pronto.

And 9821, cool, calm and collected throughout, getting the total within a nickel without breaking a sweat.

{walks over to door 3}

1233: You are both 2 games away for completing the perfect feat, let's not have it end here. What do we have behind the door?


Announcer: In the latest installment of "Random Stuff to Get Out from Backstage", we have for you...

{door opens}


...a diamond pendant, a metal cactus, an industrial staircase and an electric ricksaw!!

(https://i.imgur.com/8E3BAfa.png)

First, this pendant has a round .5 carat aquamarine gem set in platinum and is surrounded by .11 carats worth of round brilliant diamonds

Next, this 11 foot tall metal cactus is constructed of powder coated steel and makes for a great yard decoration

We also have this industrial staircase that has 36" tall galvanized rails and is able to reach a floor up to 8 ft high

And finally, this electric ricksaw has a steel frame, a maximum load of 300 kg and has a max speed of 15 mph

There you go, Numbers!

{applause}

1233: If you gave me more time, I could have found a use for some of those. Maybe...

Anyways, 9821 and JhayPrice, we are sending you on a Shopping Spree and we're not messing around. We are giving you each $15,000 to spend on 3 of these prizes. If you come back without a penny to your name, you're a winner

Now each of you tell me the order you want to pick the prizes, best of luck!

Uh, what the actual heck?

Since I have no frame of reference here, I'm just going to assume the necklace is somehow not the most expensive thing here, and go with the stairs, the cactus, and the rickshaw.

The rickshaw I think is the most expensive, oh, aren't we playing that game?

Well yeah, the pendant isn't that much as compared to the other three, like around under $1,000? I'll go for everything but the pendant.

Uh, what the actual heck?

Since I have no frame of reference here

1233: No frame of reference here? Are you insinuating there was one earlier? We will work to fix that for next show.  :lol:

Sticking together got you this far, why change now? Neither of you thinks it's an expensive pendant, so we'll see if that right.

Now the price of the staircase is...



{flips tag}

Decent chunk of the total. How much more is left to be spent?

Now, this giant cactus, which is simply stunning, costs...

Now, this electric ricksaw looks pretty impressive, But is it more than $5,098 is the question. I really want you guys to have a shot at perfection.

The price of the ricksaw is...




{dramatic pause}

{ding, ding, ding, ding}

YES!! Congratulations to both of you!

Now you both are one win away from a perfect show. We will see if you can finish the job after this final break

{pulls out boombox again, presses play}

"It's the final countdown...."

{stops}

1233: I told you it would be back.  :-)

Now you both have already won a lot of great things, but we have to have something great to finish things off. Can you find something both players would enjoy?

Announcer: Umm, I know absolutely nothing about either of them personally, except their love for the show that is. If you wanted me to snoop around, you gotta let me know earlier, I got a guy.

I guess I'll just wing it and hope that they both would enjoy...



{door 2 opens}



...a BRAND NEW LEXUS!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/bilUUON.png)


Welcome to your own personal heaven on wheels!! We have the 2021 Lexus RC F that comes with all the standard equipment you'd expect, as well as luxury packages, paint protection film, door edge guards and a uber necessary cargo net. The Lexus RC!!


{loud cheers}

(https://i.imgur.com/580Bib3.png?1)

1233: Now the only thing standing between you and the perfect show is a little Temptation

Now the first number in the price of the Lexus is...

(https://i.imgur.com/X2msqw6.png?2)

Whew, we really went all out with the budget on these games, hopefully there's some left over for the showcase.

Now I know exactly what you guys are thinking, '123, why is Door 3 still awkwardly open, showing the prizes from Shopping Spree?' It's because those 4 prizes are the 4 items we're gonna use in Temptation.

We even have the little price tags to prove it.

{rolls out tags}

(https://i.imgur.com/F7QkCgB.png)

Yes, I made you win prizes I was already going to gift, but earning things on your own accord builds character. Don't you feel better winning those rather than me just giving them to you?  ;-)

Either way, I would like you to give me you guesses for the luxury car using the prices of the Shopping Spree prizes. The second number is a 3 or 0, third is 4 or 8 and so on.

Now, of course, you still have the option to bail out and walk away not just with all the prizes you won today, but also the title of having a perfect show since, well, you didn't lose. No one can dispute that.

Now, each of you please whether you are willing to risk the perfection title I'm straight up giving you and your guess for the car if you go for it. Once again, best of luck.

If this is real life, I bail as soon as I see Temptation's board and the Lexus.

But screw it, $70,845. Go for freaking broke.

I'll take all of the marvelous gifts, final answer.

But had I went for the car, I'll go $70,859.

^Coward   :P

(although for future reference, I've never seen any additional option for a Lexus not end in a 5 or 0, and that combined with the fact that I don't think 123^3 is mean enough to do repeating digits, but mean enough to use a 0, got me to my price)

1233: Ok, first off congrats are in order for JhayPrice, you have successfully navigated through 5 games without fault. Some of those were close calls, but no losses. Hopefully you will be back next time.

{loud cheers from all other eliminated players}

So now that bailout leaves a solitary TPIRFan#9821, let's put your guess up on the board.

(https://i.imgur.com/HxosxPA.png?1)

{ding}

Now we know the 7 is right, so...

{presses button}

(https://i.imgur.com/PGqpOc8.png?1)

{ding}

Now, I'm going to do something a bit weird, shocking I know. I'm actually going to start revealing the numbers at the end and work towards the start.

I hear the backstage crew yelling from here for me not to, but everyone and their mother knows that...


{presses fifth button}

(https://i.imgur.com/Xb681xT.png?1)

{ding}

...the last number in a Lexus is either a 5 or a 0. This may or may not be the last Lexus we offer on the show while you're around 9821, pretty sure you won the last Lexus we offered too.

Now with that out of the way, let's just cross our fingers and hope for the best. We are looking for a 4 in the fourth position now, and we get...




{presses fourth button}

(https://i.imgur.com/imHtTFr.png?1)

{ding}

...a 4! Aww man, we are closing in on this win.

Now, surely we didn't put repeating 4s in there, did we? I know it's Temptation and it's for a Lexus, but we couldn't have, right?


...I think I have an issue asking questions that you literally have no way of answering. Let's just press this and....





{presses third button}

(https://i.imgur.com/92oyLmn.png?1)

{ding}

...there's the 8!!! Now 9821, the only issue we need to resolve for you to do the incredible is to find out whether this is a $70,000 car or a $73,000 car.

No pun intended, but I'm tempted to just press that button and rip the bandage off y'know? But I feel like a thorough summary is in order prior.

Now we started the day playing Safe Crackers with 9 excited players looking to right their mistakes from the last time they were...


Announcer: Uh, Numbers? Before you continue... {points to 9821}

{looks over at 9821, with a highly anxious and slightly irritated look}

1233: Umm, on second thought, let's just get to it. If you want a summary, just read through the thread, it's barely 4 pages  :-)

We are all hoping for a 0!

{loud cheers and congrats from other eliminated players}

Perfection, well done 9821! You're gonna have to update your signature, I threw 6 different games at you and won them with relative ease to walk out of here with about $145,000 worth of great cash and prizes!

Crazy thing is, we still have a showcase for you to try your hand at! While you try to calm down after that epic showing, please give me an envelope choice (A-H) while we setup to find your range, could be anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000. Best of luck!

Well, holy cow! Letís take envelope A for the victory lap!

1233: OK, well inside of envelope we find a range of...

{opens it up}

...$7,000! Not the best, but not the worse. Now let's see what we have for you in the showcase. Take it away, Mr. Announcer.

~~~

Announcer: In this showcase, we're gonna focus on perfection, as we have all show.

Now the perfect game on the show has to be It's In the Bag. You're free to disagree, but it has everything I'm looking for in a game.

So in honor of its greatness, were going to give you...a bag!!

(https://i.imgur.com/T8QmoHR.png?1)

This quilted small satchel has a sleek turn lock closure as is made of Napa leather.

{cheers}

Now, the game is obviously not just called Bag. So surely there must be something inside of it, right?


{opens bag using sleek turn lock closure, digs around inside}

Yes, it seem that there is something inside, it looks like its the controller to...your new drone!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/ULvhlks.png?1)

This 7ft long range surveillance drone set has a great assortment of features such as automatic object following, up to 40x zoom, thermal vision and automatic return. This set also includes a command center laptop and movement controller!

{applause}

Now the perfect day to me has to be 75, sunny and relaxing near the water. So let's give you that opportunity with...


{door 2 opens}

...a new sailboat and a trip to St. Kitts!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/vFDu03m.png)
(https://i.imgur.com/hP6VTVJ.png?1)

First, this 14' tall sport sailboat shows high performance with great stability and a low maintenance construction.

And then, you and a guest will fly round trip from Los Angeles to Bassaterre, St. Kitts and Nevis for a 7n stay in a king size room at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts. While there, you will be treated to a guided kayak tour and a private wine tasting, not at the same time though.

{applause}

And finally, I can't think of a more perfect ending to applaud you perfection than offering you...


{door 3 opens}


...a BRAND NEW ELECTRIC CAR!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/N2ndXVB.png)

This 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV LT comes with all the standard equipment, as well as comfort packages and a cargo net. Its the Chevy Bolt!!!

{applause}

Now, you've already been perfect, but if you're looking for the cherry on top, then this is your showcase. But only if the Price is Right!!!

~~~

{more cheers}

(https://i.imgur.com/AkLnLdZ.png)

1233: Quite the showcase 9821, now I just need a range of $7,000 for the total of your showcase. Best of luck

{9821 thinks it over again}

Post by: TPIRfan#9821 on October 03, 2021, 05:36:33 PM
I'd like to pass this showcase.



...wait, you're saying I can't do that? Well, um, let's go $59,821 then, sure.
Title: Re: Path to Perfection II: 123123123's PG Gauntlet (S2, E7)
Post by: TPIRfan#9821 on October 03, 2021, 05:38:10 PM
...and I forgot how my own showcase gimmick works. Since I meant for $59,821 to be my midpoint, I'll set my range from $56,321 to $63,321.

1233: I forgot about how this works too, I don't really know what to display on the single podium. The median? The low or high value?

We could bring out the second, but you know what, just stand behind it and remember your range, we'll do it manually.

Now if the total is anywhere between $56,321 and $63,321, you're a winner. The actual total is...







...






{slowly pulls tag}


(https://i.imgur.com/coHjdwt.png)

{ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}

Just like everything else you've done so far, that was a nearly perfect range!

This, along with everything you won throughout the show bring your well over $200k on the show.

For everyone who played along, thanks for joining and hope you all had a good time

{credits start rolling}

~~~

Overall, things went about as expected. IMO, I think there were 2 of each gimme (Safe, C-O), average (5PT, Tempt) and loss favoring (Push, Spree) games.

Also, if I do another, don't think I'll do a showcase to end, seemed a bit anti climatic after the fact  :-)

But, once again, thanks all who joined
