Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 1/23/2018

Just one day in to my humble request for 4/6 shows the rest of the week, we fall one game short.

Oh well, always tomorrow!!

After several blown DSWs and WSDs, I finally hit the jackpot!

As always, I'd like to thank this Oster Rice Cookers crew, this #19 has been wicked fast! 😜

After the $1600 bid in Clock, Drew quickly mentioned "It's lower than a thousand."  Do you think Drew should have done this?
Probably not.  In the end, it didn't really matter since she still didn't win it, but unless he starts telling people the prices are always less than $1000, he shouldn't say anything.

I dunno
Why bother commenting on a subject if this is all you have to offer?

...How the heck did I manage to PM myself on Tapatalk instead of Wayo? Meh, I still would have gotten an okay score, but that sucks.

Should have actually just blind bidded 98210/75000 tbh.

The TALK Is Right / New Pricing Game Idea: Price Disk (undecided name)
« Last post by tpir7215 on Today at 06:50:30 PM »
The game is set up like this with 8 digits arranged in a circular pattern on a "disk":

  1  9
3      0
6      7
  4  2


There is also a light bluish "window" (similar to that found on Push Over but curved instead) that stretches to include 4 of the 8 numbers.  The contestant must rotate this "window" so that when read CLOCKWISE, the correct price of the prize is highlighted.  For example:

  1  9
3      0
6      7
  4  2


This would be read as $2,463, not $3,642.

Also, for ease/simplicity, an LCD screen (something the show seems to love) in the center of the titular disk would update itself for every one of the window's moves.
If played for a car, this game could either be reworked to have 10 digits instead of 8 and a 5-digit window OR the display would simply put a 1 in front of the bid.  Of course, since it would be an LCD screen, it would always format the bid with a dollar sign and the thousands separator comma.

Alternatively, the digits on the set and the "window" could also be part of a special LCD touchscreen a la Double Cross.

So essentially this game is a mix of Freeze Frame (numbers arranged in circular pattern), Push Over (light blue window), and Double Cross (touchscreen is used to submit answer).

The TALK Is Right / Re: New Pricing Game Idea: Price Pie
« Last post by tpir7215 on Today at 06:25:26 PM »
...it sounds like it would require players to have to multiply which is sadly why they ditched Hit-Me a number of years ago.

That'll be the displays' function: to update itself every time a change is made.
And I'm thinking maybe the inside of the pie should be a touch screen instead and three colored buttons in front of the contestant corresponding to the flavors would be placed.  The contestant would first push the button corresponding to the flavor they wanted and then tap on the slice they wanted to put that flavor in and as mentioned, the corresponding bid display would update itself.
So if the contestant taps a slice with blueberry active, the display for the blueberry prize would add (in this case) $1,200 to the bid and (if there was already a different flavor in that slice) subtract $1,200 from the replaced flavor.

CSS -- Chatroom Showcase Showoff / CSS Results for 01/23/2018 (Game 76)

I kinda knew when the SC1 placard was 'trips/car', another trip/car (or SUV as it turned out) was coming. Cheapo Arizona was back, but either Costa Rica or that treadmill was a bit pricy. silverice & I enjoy very close DSW cashes, albeit Adam wins overall by a sliver of a point.

Sounds like this game would not be a piece of cake.

I kind of see where you're going with this but I don't see it working too well on the show unfortunately due to semi-complex rules plus it sounds like it would require players to have to multiply which is sadly why they ditched Hit-Me a number of years ago.

The visuals sound interesting however I don't know that this would prove a very viable pricing game.

I see where it has elements of Make Your Move between the three different colors of "pie" and having to be right about all three prizes' prices to win the game. 

Given the example of a $12,000 pie, that would require having all 3 prizes being equally divisible by exactly $1,200.  That too could prove rather difficult for the staff I would think.

Good Show today.
Show went by so quick , we had an aired double overbid on a IUFB , only the 2nd aired one in the last 5 seasons.
Today's Now or Then offered the most expensive non-car prize package ever offered and won in this game.

It was obvious that the arcade game had the wrong price, but Victor missed it.
It goes without saying that both prizes in Clock Game will always be less than $1,000. I know that they experimented with prizes worth $1,000 and more before eventually giving those out as a bonus, but before that, when was the last time they were used on the daytime show?
Before the time they were using $1,000+ prizes in the game during season 37 there was a time in the 1980's that they were being used in the game. It was played for a car at least once!

Anyway, I don't think it was that big a deal that Drew told her it was less than $1,000. It's not like he told her something like "it's between $600 and $700."

Five Price Tags was promising since the contestant got two choices, but it was pretty tough choosing since $22,300 was the only price that definitely looked wrong. The vacuum sealer was the only small prize that was trickier to guess.

It was obvious that the arcade game had the wrong price, but Victor missed it.
Yup, $927 was definitely wrong. Surprising loss there.
