Thank you so much for pushing through, even with your arm. Hopefully, it heals up quickly!

Just posting this here, the base cash should be 49036 + 52129 + 66957 + 101224 + (72043 * 2)=413432.
FPG -- Friday Prediction Game / FPG 11/17/17 - RESULTS (Partial)
« Last post by Punchboard91 on Today at 12:49:12 AM »
As I stated in the other thread, I am currently in a lot of pain in my right arm, making it hard to be on a computer for more than about 10 minutes at a time. Posting quick and dirty results of the rankings, and hopefully will be able to add the money for everyone this week.

Next game will be next Monday, for the Cyber Monday special, assuming we don't get spoiled out. I will hopefully post a thread about that Wednesday, along with the final results of this week, as well as the picks from both weeks.
Out In Left Field / Yet Another Pricing Game Idea: Price Pyramid
« Last post by tpir7215 on Yesterday at 11:28:06 PM »
Based on Egyptian pyramids, this game would be played for $20,000 in cash.
Here's how it works:
A large pyramid prop with four levels ($1,000, $2,000, $5,000, and $20,000) is presented, and next to each of them is a row of buttons with hieroglyphics corresponding to small prizes/SPs.  Each SP is described, and then the contestant must "climb" the pyramid by guessing which SP corresponds to a certain clue (a la Fortune Hunter) on each level.  The clues start out relatively easy (i.e., which one is the least/most expensive item) but get harder on higher levels (i.e., for the top level, which one has a price ending in 8).  SPs are not eliminated as possibilities upon being correct, nor are their prices revealed.
Upon the first mistake, the prize money for each level is cut in half (becoming $500, $1,000, $2,500, and $10,000) but the contestant still has the choice to go on or quit with their now-halved money.  A second mistake ends the game in a complete loss, and the contestant wins nothing.  A bailout is self-explanatory.  Winning the game on the top level wins either $10,000 or $20,000 depending on whether a mistake was made along the way.

I'll eventually put up visual/graphic examples of gameplay and the set.

So what do you think?

Was this the only time a trip was offered in Take two? I remember a trip was offered in race game on the million dollar spectacular.

I miss the train sound effect, the showcase skits and every room in the house showcase. I wish the would bring back some of the showcase skits.

The models wardrobe looked snazzy.

My thought on this is if all of that information were here in the threads, it would be easy to compile for someone on this forum that has the opportunity to try and be on the show, giving them a greater chance of winning?

Funny you mention this, and it's why I think mentioning size matters. ;)

Given our other common shared interest pertaining to primarily, although not exclusively Wednesdays, I've been thinking there's a way to work in a way that can be shortened to a certain two letters. With the rest of the week off, I'm going to work in every product offered this season in a giant database in Excel sorted by item (Grocery, Small, 3-digit, 4-digit non-trip, car, vehicle, 5-digit trip, 5-digit other), then get someone to code it for me into a Python program, memorize from there.

Every single prize will be recorded, including backwardation of rooms, trips will be noted down from room type, to excursions. Every car will have every option, model, transmission, etc. listed to take maximum optimization, including the car's base, so you can memorize the options from that root. One specifical note in this respect: Paint & Fabric Protection, or PFP, is a local option, is not determinable online, and changes not only from season to season, but year to year, meaning on the same car Season 45 PFP will vary from Season 46 PFP. This all is quite a bit more than 35 dumplings, but it'll do.

If you want this sent to you, lemme know if you want it here and/or Reddit. Applies to Mewtwo specifically given he mentioned it, but really anyone.

I started something rough like this last June but really want to put it into action. Should be said, Ted Slauson did the same as this about 10-15 years ago. Just picking up where he left off the way I see it, you know? Plus I owe you for some help in return for that subreddit work/FAQ of old. Made for some good fun meeting and subsequently impressing a boardie here earlier this month.

They sometimes do offer different brands though.  Pain/allergy relief seems to be a recurring example of this (i.e., they've shown Tylenol, Xyzal (this one especially it seems), etc)

I specify the brands. I'm not going to extra trouble to specify the sizes unless its like Allegra, which does come in different forms.
