I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more masterful playing of a game’s premiere.

I’m ashamed to admit that it took a little bit of time for me to register that the contestant couldn’t lose with five pennies on the last item.

I agree with you; I don't think I've ever seen such dominance of a game in its very first playing (as least first playing that aired on television).  Still that was fantastic.  The guy felt like he was a LFAT, did his homework, knew his pricing, and was just outright fun to watch.  While I like that people are rewarded with a nice pass to the top prize for knowing the products without using a penny, it is a pleasant surprise that people don't have to earn $25,000 despite being perfect (for instance, there are 4 pennies, not 5, and it's a 50/50 shot at the end).

Tough luck in $1 Million Punch a Bunch.  Right call to toss the 10K back obviously.  Just unfortunate & a downer that the guy had to settle for $2,500

$10,000 is nothing to sneeze at, but I don’t blame the contestant at all for going on in Punch-A-Bunch. Not enough good luck unfortunately.
 
On Range Game:  I didn’t know the rangefinder obeyed verbal commands! :-D  Did you notice that it did stop for a moment when the contestant shouted “Stop!”?  It then kept going until he hit the button.

Basically another giveaway of an expensive prize today. This time in Vend-O-Price.

Fantastic win in Cover Up. And I really liked the 1972 graphics. The reminder of all of the inflation since then? Not nearly as much.
 
Perfect playing of To The Penny! Very exciting to watch, and the display looks fantastic. I think the game is great, and I like that “unusual” dollar amounts are offered. 

Nice looking Lexus, and welcome Alexis!

Darn! No million dollar winner this time around! Oh, well!

At least we got to see the other new game To The Penny played, and beautifully I might add!

Also, that $37,000 yacht trip was up there with that tiny house!

Cover Up was nice to see with the 1972 photos! Although 7-Bid Bullseye is the one game I'd rather forget!

Range Game: If only it had taken Andrew another two seconds or so to realize he had to hit the button.

Cover Up: Perfect strategy! April probably would have lost if she had gotten the second number right on the first try. Plus, I never expected the show to have a shout out to the original Bullseye. All in all, that game was a joy to watch.

To the Penny: I like it, though I'm a bit surprised you don't have to risk what you've already won to keep going. But it's a very unique pricing concept with a good looking set. And of course, congrats to Nat for waiting 40 years to be on the show and then playing a what I believe will be a hard game perfectly on its first playing!!

Overall: Kudos to Drew for giving Bob a shout out on each episode this week and kudos to the show for giving Alexis a chance to introduce herself today through the showcase prizes. Today was a very good show.

It rewards very smart shoppers. Something that is missing from many of the contestants  who are just randomly guessing at prices these days.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more masterful playing of a game’s premiere.

I remember Stack the Deck’s debut was played as perfectly as you can play it, though the setup was quite a bit easier than what would eventually become the norm of tricky setups and sometimes season-long losing records.

About To the Penny-
It was played so flawlessly that it left me with questions..
There has to be a risk option of some type, right? For instance if a contestant makes mistakes early and has less than 2 pennies left at any point before the $25,000 item they won’t be afforded a second chance for making another wrong pick (since ‘second chances’ cost 2 pennies), so does the game end once you’re unable to buy a second chance or will it be a ‘if you make one more wrong pick you lose what you’ve won so far’ thing?
There seems like a lot of strategies that could develop, though without any bailout or ‘lose everything’ elements (that we know of yet) it’s hard to see how any contestant could ever leave this game with anything less than the $3000 prize.

Recap posted.

Love the new game, I also really enjoy the 1500-3000-6000-12000-25000 scale. Nitpicky me would've preferred $24,000 so we could have a regular game offer $24K besides Bag, but it's just nitpicking. (Same reason Millionaire isn't $128,000/$256,000/$512,000 but 125-250-500).

Another disappointing finish for the million dollar game this week. Would've been interesting to see whether Edward kept $50,000 if he had that.

Loved the 1972 games on the Cover Up board at the beginning.

To the Penny is a solid game, nice set and the gameplay has a nice bit of strategy involved. A masterful playing from Nat, not using or losing any pennies until he gave them up at the final product to automatically win. It'll be an exciting climax when a contestant doesn't have all their pennies before getting

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more masterful playing of a game’s premiere.
The only other possibilities I can think of are Step Up and Stack the Deck.

It's odd since Drew didn't say any bailout options this playing (or was it edited out?), but you can easily wipe out all your pennies with more than one wrong guess on a GP.

Maybe it's a player-friendly bail you can do at any time. Will have to see

One thing I liked about "To The Penny" (besides it's masterful playing today), was its reveal! Lift up the curtain or whatever it was that was hiding it, to reveal the top prize of the game. Then the large set piece rotating in place like the golf ball on the Hole in One (or Two) prop. And finally, the sign marquee dropping from the ceiling into place above the large penny set piece.

We're 2 for 2 on new games. To The Penny is a fantastic new cash game. Great strategy element in deciding when and where to use the pennies and pennies themselves really pretty cool looking. The gum and dressing had pretty obvious correct picks amongst the prices. The supplement was relatively easy. Maybe some people would get tripped by the $16.19 but I think that most would realize the $12.99 was the correct price for the supplement.  The Bagels were more challenging although I too would have correctly guessed $4.99 without spending a penny in advance. Like Nat, I would have won by having all 5 pennies left at the conditioner and spending them to eliminate the prices there. I incorrectly guessed $6.49 for the conditioner. This game has a good pricing concept, has a nice strategy element, and is fun to play along at home with.

LOVED the 1972 pics on Cover Up today. It was interesting to see pic of the original Bullseye and Clock Game back to back. Clock Game is somewhat of a derivative of the original Bullseye. You know, guess a price, be told higher or lower, and keeping guessing until you win or your chances run out. In Clock Game, these chances are based on time rather than a number of opportunities. And of course, seeing a pic of the original Money Game set was totally awesome baby!

Hard to know what to make of Edward's decision in Punch a Bunch to throw away $10,000. On 1 hand, there were only 7 cards higher and 35 cards lower. On the other hand, the amount of money on the higher cards was extremely substantial. Having to make this decision is the classic being caught a rock and hard place. The odds say stay, the stakes say go on.

They say a penny that is heads-up is good luck, while a penny face down is bad luck.

The motif used for this game has all the pennies showing the "tails" side.  Obviously it was not bad luck whatsoever for the first player or playing of this really nice new game!

It was nice to see To The Penny won, but I feel like because of that, it's not clear what would happen if the game is not played perfectly. Like how many chances do they have? Is it supposed to be like It's In the Bag or Hot Seat?

Also, I'm disappointed there was no Million Dollar Win. They came close a few times. Maybe they'll bring it back for the best of 2021 show, who knows?

Post by: ProfPrice on September 18, 2021, 11:14:21 PM
I know it would not add anything to the game play, but selfishly, I wish that when a contestant makes their choice on an item in To The Penny that Drew would have to tap the price and then we would hear the Penny Ante/Double Dare sound effect before hearing an eventual ding or buzz.

Post by: PimpinJC on September 19, 2021, 02:07:00 AM
Is this the first time since the first 2 weeks of 1972 that the original Bullseye has been shown on TV!?

Loved “To the Penny”.  Really hope that game stays, and that was awesome to see it won perfectly.  By the way, I wonder if those are the same pennies that were used at one point in Penny Ante.

Overall, a pretty disappointing week in terms of the million dollars being won, although that’s not really surprising given that the out-of-order show which aired on Monday didn’t have a win.  I know the show tries to “manufacture hype” by airing the highest win to start the week, but it also makes the week obviously anti-climactic especially if the best they can show isn’t a win.
