The TALK Is Right / Re: The future for some pricing games
« Last post by gamesurf on Today at 02:09:38 AM »
There has to be a disclaimer that the prices shown are at the nominal exchange rate in USD during the day of taping in order for this to apply. To continue the theme, the game would usually be played for a trip to the country being featured in that playing. But very few people are familiar with the concept of prices in other countries. A lot of designer fashion is quite a bit cheaper in France or Italy compared to North America, while McDonald's is often quite a bit more overseas. It's probably never going to happen.

ftr “Here or There” was a joke, it might work on a HYO as a gag but there’s no way something like that would fly on the actual show

As for the Golden Road opening sub-$1 prize, I agree in terms of its demise.  Yes it's not played much if at all anymore, but I don't think it would be a crime to just simply use a small prize to start the game.  Given the increase in everything, if nothing's coming down soon, not much would be worth 99 cents or less.  Still, what's the big deal

Smaller items contrast better. You’re starting with something little and insignificant, but you work your way up to a Maserati. Gameplay-wise there’s no reason you can’t use an $72 blender instead of an 72˘ can of cat food, but the cat food does a better job selling the narrative of “tiny thing leads to big thing”.

That novel aspect of Golden Road IMO makes it worth spending time hunting down *something* that costs 72 cents if at all possible.

I wouldn't mind a Make Your Move upgrade, but I would prefer if they went to a 5-4-3 structure instead of a 5-3-2 (or 5-4-2).  I'm not sure if it's at the top of their to-do list.

On a related note, and I planned to bring this up not too long ago on the boards, but I wouldn't be against an upgrade to games like Switcheroo and Any Number.  I get that the goal in both is to win a car, but I would love to see 3-digit prizes (instead of 2) for 4 prizes.  Meanwhile, the other Any Number prize could move to 4 digits (you'd give away the first number away free).  I briefly mentioned both in chat a while back.  I don't think it's imperative to make that move, but I'd love to see it down the road.

It sits in the mornings here on Game TV, at 9 and 9:30.

And on June 6, it moves to 7:00 and 7:30 a.m. as per GameTV's schedule.

I do not think this expression means what you appear to think it means.

^ Even with how rare on-air overbids are now, it was a hoot to see him do something at his podium whenever it happened. XD

Regardless of where you stand on Jon or his games, this site isn't tech support for fan software.

I wouldn't be surprised if legally he's not supposed to offer support for them either.

Legally, we aren’t supposed to post TPIR clips on YouTube, either.

Doesn’t mean it hurts to try. Worst he (or his stream mods) could say is “sorry, can’t help you”.

Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 5/9/2022

Unless there's one coming up in some of the episodes slated to air on Pluto/Roku from Season's 13-15, we may never know (for sure).  However, the closest factoring in current times & inflation would have happened in 2016, but based on actualities, 2074D features the record.

I guess there could be a nice debate on whether the $11 one was more impressive than the $25 one six years ago; either way, both are impressive.  Still, in answer to your question, based on known material, no exacta in Card Game

I guess the demises of Flash and BigJon's games helped pave the way for a big cutting of security risks.  Won't miss them for the world.
