Out In Left Field / Re: Another Pricing Game Idea: "Shift"
« Last post by Teddy on Today at 04:38:28 PM »
Funny that I had developed a game for my HYO series that was similar to this, but it would be called Leapfrog (which is basically Flip Flop with one number to be switched instead of a pair of numbers). This is how I would've done it:

Wrong price is $1234; one digit must be "leapfrogged" over the one to its right
Possible choices are $2134, $1324 and $1243

Oh well: If the HYO section is ever revived, then I will definitely play it out.

Out In Left Field / Re: New Pricing Game Idea: 8 Ball

I see the SP pricing part being similar to that of Joker, except that 8 is always the number that will appear in all the prices (i.e., is the right price $58 or $85?). Other than that, I think it's a great concept, and I could see Drew having fun with this.

My thought was 6 groceries with the contestant picking 3, and I should've put that there would be 2-3 groceries with...2 digits for $10+ items so there would be pairs

How does the contestant get five cards if he doesn't pick any of those?

Yes the idea I threw out there would be Hi Lo-esque which didn't occur to me, but Gridlock is pretty much Money Game

Gridlock! isn't supposed to be a half-baked reworking of Poker Game.

My thought was 6 groceries with the contestant picking 3, and I should've put that there would be 2-3 groceries with the same starting digit/2 digits for $10+ items so there would be pairs (so if there's one $10.xx product and two $9.xx products, the best hand would be a pair of nines and the 10). Yes the idea I threw out there would be Hi Lo-esque which didn't occur to me, but Gridlock is pretty much Money Game and there's been other similarities in pricing games. I don't necessarily think it's a good idea myself, but Ton bringing up the idea of using groceries and my thought there should be a way to make pricing more of a factor in the game made me think of it.

This raises several questions:

1.)  Exactly how many groceries are you planning to use for this?

2.)  Isn't this basically Hi Lo?

3.)  Given that higher cards don't always make better hands, how does this actually have anything to do with poker?

There's no reason for the rule change. You can play Poker with 4 digit prizes, but the set was antiquated, and really there's no reason for Poker to return.

The thing with Poker Game is if it were to ever return it should be re-done so that pricing knowledge comes into play more. It was more random guessing than pricing knowledge. I think the way to do this would be to use groceries as Ton80 suggested, with the idea being to choose the more expensive grocery products and have the hand be made up of the starting digit in each product (picking products that are $8.xx, $9.xx, $10+ in price beating ones that are $5.xx, $6.xx, and $7.xx in price for example).

A post-tax $1,000 is better than nothing, which is what the contestant gets if they go for it on the last item and lose.
