FPG -- Friday Prediction Game / FPG 10/19/18 - RESULTS
« Last post by OneBidTris on Today at 12:58:09 PM »
I can't promise they're all be this early, but I had time today and I can provide results right now. It certainly was an FPG lineup today, no cash, 1Ps 3/4, an all S first 4 without Stack the Deck? It created some low scores and only 5 people benefited from Play-Along picks. Even then, because only 1 contestant won more than $2250, 9821 and 2K take up most of the money today. Here's the lineup:

Safe Crackers - priac is the only one to pick this and nets $50K.
Switcheroo - Kev maxes it, Cephas got the right result, both get $25K.
Side by Side - 9 picks, no one gets results or slot right, I, Sweeper, Wayo picked it for PA.
Squeeze Play - 10 picks, only Kev nails it, 2K and 9821 picked it for PA.
Pick-a-Pair - Teddy and sideshow get 1 MP and $25K each for it.
Temptation - Wayo and 123 get 25K and 2/12 for that.

4 games with less than 3 picks, means good money for those picked, but 3 MP was good for 5th. Kev runs away with 8 MP/36 CP, Cephas 2nd with 5/13 and Wayo squeaks in 3rd with 3/15.

We skip ahead a few production weeks next week thanks to the new model.  Should be a fun FPG if one that'll be difficult to predict, but that's why we're all here. See you then.

Hello all.  Good show today overall.  Was this the 1st playing of Make Your Move this season?   :D
I think it was 34 or 35 but might be 33. It was the one time Bob mentioned Rod Roddy after his death. Someone comes up on stage and Bob reads the back of her shirt which says "Rest in peace Rod Roddy" Does anyone know which episode this was?

Always good to see More or Less won, and Carolyn played it very well.

Had David switched the laptop and motorcycle, he would've won.
What games are key and what are not? The games that would all be played, you thought.

I really enjoyed the More or Less win, even if the first three prizes were pretty much gimmes. Plus a decent partial win on Time is Money. My one head-thump moment was Do The Math, I thought that was an obvious game waiting to be won, but then again I know how expensive pool tables are.
Out In Left Field / The Return Of The Community Pricing Game!
« Last post by silverice878 on Today at 08:18:06 AM »
Howdy, one and all! I'm happy to say I will be restarting the Community Pricing Game!

The reason I'd stopped was because I was terribly busy and hadn't gotten the time to do them regularly, and on top of that, I've been so damn depressed the last little while, I could bring myself to do something as simple as get them organized and sent. But, I'm feeling better now and the workload has lightened up, so I will go back to making these!

And for the big return, the Pricing Game this go-round is Check-Out! For those uninitiated, the game works like this: You must guess the prices of five grocery items, and we'll add up your guesses. We'll then show the ARPs, and if the total is within $2 above or below your guesses, you will win! Good luck and all the best, shoppers! You have until Friday, October 26 to submit a form!
