Price is Right Video Collection / Re: September 13, 1993

Ok, I went back episode by episode and checked the tapes to make sure this time.

September 13- red lights

September 22- still has red lights

September 30- first playing with blue lights.





Possibly the only playing where Bob forgot to reveal the price?

I don't blame him-- it seems to me that he said in actions what Bob would oftentimes use words to say on losses like that: "What a miserable loss!" or "Rare bad luck!" or similar.
Speaking of Shell Game and Bob, I donít think he would have raised the one shell without a chip first, unless he was pressed for time perhaps. He might have narrowed it down to two shells, one with a chip and one without and then asked the contestant which one to raise next. I saw him do that many times. Personally I would have built up to it as well.

Fantastic Lucky $even win!! :)

My bad, I remember the playing with the red lights Carlos uploaded had a Plymouth Sundance Duster as the prize, which this playing had, too, per the recap, and I was confused when I read it and posted above.

So, the blue lights were in place by at least the fifth playing, on October 13, 1993.

Zeroing on Friday hurts so, so, so much. This reminds me of that in stark detail.

It's hard to see from the quality of the copy of the episode I have but here's a screenshot from the October 13, 1993 episode. The blue lights are in place. I'm not sure if this was the first playing with them as there are three other playings between this one and the premiere and this is the earliest playing I have in my collection.

The red lights lasted through at least October 13, 1993, which was Cover Up's fifth playing (our own temptation1979ga had this playing up on YouTube many years ago). By November 8, 1993, Cover Up's eighth playing, the blue lights were in place.

I can confirm that October 25th is the first playing of Cover Up with the blue lights. That day, the gameís lights flashed on and off throughout the contestantís first turn, even after the buzzer sounded, indicating her first guess was wrong, confusing everyone momentarily.

This morning, Wink posted the studio master to episode #17 of the short-lived Bill Cullen-hosted game Pass the Buck, which preceded Price in 1978.

I think Bob's explanation intended to encourage the contestant to try and get as many numbers right on the first try like many pricing games, since the show rewards smart shoppers. If a contestant has only some of the numbers right after the first guess, Bob presented that part of the game similar to a second chance to win the car.

Since Drew became host, contestants are now encouraged to pick out the numbers they feel are correct, with the knowledge that as long as they have at least one new number correct on each guess, they can keep playing. This might make the contestants feel more comfortable, since they don't have to play to perfection, and it allows them to employ strategy (such as missing the first number deliberately if they feel they know the second number). We've seen several contestants from the last 11 years end up in "Automatic Win" situations where the last remaining number in a column is correct by default, and that was the last number the contestant needed to complete the car's price.
