Out In Left Field / Re: Another Unnamed Pricing Game Idea

Could possibly work with a 2 digit + 3 digit prize, and make the “area” the amount in cash won.  Would be a quick cash game, for sure.

That definitely makes more sense than my original idea.  My only problem is that it would award a bit more money for overpricing both items by $10 than for getting both exactly right (i.e., $8,000 for overshooting vs $6,300 for a perfect game in my example) and in the case of overshooting in general, you'd win more money for overshooting it by more.  Maybe double the cash for each exacta?

There were nine—count 'em—NINE—Pay the Rent solutions. As long as you put the allergy relief in the attic and the lotion on the second floor, you had a 75% chance of stumbling into a correct order for the other four.

Correction to my post on Gambit: I misstated the suit under the Ace-- it was a Spade as I said to start, but I then said that the Gambit title appeared from inside a Club.

It was also exciting seeing the contestants run onto the stage to their podiums in the late 80s/early 90s intros.

More favorite opening moments: Nickelodeon Double Dare- Marc starting the show with "On your mark...get set...Go!!!" and then the contestants playing the toss-up challenge.
Supermarket Sweep- Johnny/Randy asking the audience who has *insert product* and then telling them "you're on!"
American Gladiators- Loved the montage and Mike Adamle and whichever co-host's chat in the beginning of the episode at the beginning and when they introduced each gladiator individually before the opening chat.

The two favorite openings of mine were on Wheel of Fortune and American Gladiators- I think of the the contestants run onto the stage to their podiums on WOF or  the montage on AG as two of my favorite openings, at least back then.

Well then.  Wonder why it was kicked though.

I was in the audience for that show and for the life of me I can't think of any specific reason why it got bumped, twice. I know a trip offered in a pricing game wasn't an issue but I can't remember if there was anything in the Showcases.

A trip to Wilmington, NC or Myrtle Beach, SC (or somewhere in this area) would certainly be a good reason to bump the show, given the recent Hurricane Florence.

It's not unheard of for the show to postpone an episode where a trip was offered to an area struck by a disaster.

Maroon 5 means I will not watch the halftime show. Awful group.


Another bad Thursday night game but what do you expect with the teams involved?

The use of a 4 digit prize doesn’t really make sense and would probably confuse the contestant.  In your example given, the contestant wins anywhere between $60/$80 ($4,800) to $80/$100 ($8,000).  That’s a spread of $3,200.  Plus, unless you made it painfully obvious which side goes to what prize, a $90/$70 selection loses, even though the contestant got the price of everything right. :-?

Could possibly work with a 2 digit + 3 digit prize, and make the “area” the amount in cash won.  Would be a quick cash game, for sure.

Math games are not the brightest of the bunch for contestants as well.  If “Hit Me” got retired due to math, I couldn’t see this one lasting long.
