That's an interesting find, probably because it highlights a company that I have never heard of until now.

I too had never heard of PlayTape until I watched Techmoan's video. It's just a scaled down 8 track player. The tapes go for high prices on eBay.

I will have to do more research, but I have a feeling that Mark Goodson saw the PT logo and used that as inspiration for the dollar mark...that is if Goodson.himself designed the TPIR logo.

I don't know if it would add enough spice to be significant. I mean, I guess that could be an excuse to take Squeeze off of the turntable, but I still don't think it would be enough pizzazz to add a twist that people would appreciate.

I like to see Grand Game get lowered down instead of using the Giant Price Tag.

Carl Lewis' in 1993 deserves mention also. Fergie's last night was just bad but I do think Roseanne's was the absolute worse.

And of course there's also Frank Drebin's butchery of the anthem to consider...

I wouldn't be opposed to a new game having a "lowered from above" reveal but I don't see what the point would be in doing so with current games that have pretty well established reveals.   I mean sure you could do that but would it be worth the effort?  As far as games/props coming up from the floor, I don't know what sort of work that would entail but as interesting as that would be to see, it does present one potential problem I thought of.  Scenario: Excited contestant runs around on stage, someone hits button at wrong time, up comes thing when it's not supposed to, person trips and gets hurt, lawsuit.  Did I put too much thought into this?  Probably.  There's nothing wrong with trying new ideas but there's also the old saying of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."  I'm sure there's some kind of acceptable balance between those.

I would think that padding cash of any amount to a Showcase should give off a helpless vibe, especially considering how volatile prices can be for the other stuff.

     All-Star Games are just another excuse for money-grubbing "stars" to further stroke their egos...

FPG -- Friday Prediction Game / FPG 02/16/18 - RESULTS
« Last post by Punchboard91 on Yesterday at 07:06:13 PM »
Let's all say it together, now....confidence points can make the difference!

Our winner this week is SuperSweeper, edging out Kev347 by 1 CP. Wayoshi rounds out the top 3.

In a change from usual, the only non-key game was Flip Flop this week, helping most folks score points of some sort. Let em Roll gave $15,000 to myself, Wayoshi, and Kev. Race Game gave $25,000 to Kev and myself. Range Game gave $25,000 to Kev and Tanzerey. Five Price Tags gave $25,000 to SuperSweeper and Tpirfan#9821. And $50,000 goes to Tanzerey for being the sole 2 for 1 pick. Congrats to everyone for the bonus cash!

As of now, FPG is on for this week, but check in to see, as with Big Money Week, we could get spoiled out.
