Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 6/15/2018

Boy was HI-LO very EVIL with a capital E!!!   I would understand if that kind of a setup was used for a car.  But this kind of setup for a regular prize?  Poor Neil.  Not that I did any better, I would have picked the shrimp to be on the HI row.

That second winners circle in the Joy Behar/Kevin Smith episode was devastating.  I didn't think they wanted the $100,000 extra won because two of those categories were traps waiting to be sprung...BATHROOM was one trap, the other was the last one (TOUGH) due to the synonyms.  There were way too many synonyms for TOUGH.

Congratulations to Luigi. He came up with some very good clues under pressure, such as "rainforest" (excellent) , "dreidel", "Coltrane", and "Wakanda". :)

I'm surprised "Things in a High School" was won with only "School." I suppose that's the essence of the category, but I would think the judges would wait for the key word/phrase before sounding the bell.
If I was the judge, I wouldn't have accepted it. Why even include the word "high" in the subject if one is going to accept just "school"?

That 10-9 score was the lowest I've seen in this incarnation of Pyramid.

For "Skunk", I thought of "My name is Pepe Le Pew, and I stink."
For "Spin", I had Wheel of Fortune, The Price Is Right wheel, and a top.
For "Jazz", I was thinking Ella Fitzgerald, and Harry Connick Jr.
And for "tough", I had shoe leather, a decision, and an overcooked steak.
Those are some great clues.  My sister thought of "Sears kids jeans" for that last subject, hoping that the receiver would think of Toughskins. And I can clearly hear Dick Clark saying "HIS script", "HIS props", "HIS coach" etc. for "Things An Actor Uses".

I had to play at the end I felt like, give myself as many chances to Q as I could. I didn't think an exacta was realistically on the table. It was more about me having a couple shitty B days, including an 82 one time

Or if I maintain 1st in cash and 2K doesn't go ham in the back half of the season, I have one more bonus point.

Or if I am a bit better about being under, I'm higher up on the points leaderboard and have one more bonus point.

etc.

It was awesome to see the first $150,000 win of the season. There was hesitation on the winning category, "Jazz Musicians" (or something similar), but Anthony Anderson, despite his lack of confidence, helped the contestant win. If only we can have someone max out their winnings by winning the cash plus the Mystery 7 trip...

We also had a gameplay first in the current era of Pyramid: Jennifer Lewis' team could not catch up to Anthony Anderson's team after their three rounds of play. They scored 9 after their three rounds to Anthony Anderson's team's 10, which was scored in two rounds, so Anthony's team won by default. Granted, it wasn't the best game when Jennifer's team got 2 on their first round, three on their second, and the ESP wasn't strong between the contestant and celebrity.

In the second half...

Is Ask Jeeves still a thing? Kevin James went to that instead of the correct answer of "Wikipedia" when his contestant partner described the "fake Google" site where you look up information.

I'm surprised "Things in a High School" was won with only "School." I suppose that's the essence of the category, but I would think the judges would wait for the key word/phrase before sounding the bell.

The last Winner's Circle was heartbreaking. The sixth subject, "Things That are Tough," was a trap; one would have to stay focused and say "Leather," "A wrestler," "Nails," or another suitable object and hope their partner says "Tough."

The worst obstacle i remember was buried treasure. it would literally take up the entire 60 secs to find the flag.  i think times, the other contestant or even marc would jump and help try to find it.

I wonder if the Magic # should just be in multiples of $5 or $10.  Do we need it by the dollar?  I think the game would go quicker and the scale would move up faster as well.  (This assumes they want the game to be won more often!)

For the first five or so years of the game, the Magic # automatically rounded itself to the nearest $10. This was changed to allow for more precision. Also, I would not be surprised if the change was made due to the fact a contestant could lose because the computer rounded the Magic # in such a way that it fell short or exceeded one of the prizes' prices.
