Out In Left Field / Re: Reboot Game Idea: “Buy or Sell” 2.0
« Last post by pannoni1 on Today at 06:54:03 AM »
Decent idea, since I wouldn't mind the "quickie revamp" since ME, Eazy, and 1RP get too much play at this time, yet it would add an interesting "showcase" twist during an actual game, and this would save some time, and I'd use Door #2 with a big logo behind the prizes, along with a kiosk showing the "offeratory price", along with a lever that reveals the ARP. The normal buzzer with losing horns would be used for a loss. Since Do The Math does offer a little cash, that wouldn't be a bad idea in terms of the cash being awarded for the difference in savings if possible.

Out In Left Field / Re: New Pricing Game Idea: Speed Limit
« Last post by pannoni1 on Today at 06:47:16 AM »
I think that's a cool prop design and your idea with three picks not to go over seems like an idea, but I'd change it where its a hybrid GP/SP game like Rat Race, with three pairs of items similar to Give or Keep/Hurdles, with the items getting more expensive as the game progresses, starting with cheap GPs (usually less than about $7 or so), then more expensive GPs ($7-$20), and then finally a pair of SPs. But to save time, eliminate the bailout option since even if both GPs were picked incorrectly, there would still be suspense for the final SP. The price of all prizes would be shown at the end of the game. In essence, this would sort of be Hurdles 2.0, but for a car and no worries about a starting pistol hurting anyone.

BOTH Things at a MAGIC SHOW and People at an AIRPORT were trap categories.  The wrong giver would easily fall for those traps.  TYPES of BOOTHS was also a killer too.  Besides PHONE, VOTING, and I heard TOLL from one of our own here, I thought KISSING for TYPES of BOOTHS. 
Yep, those take careful thought. I thought of “the wand” for that first subject, and “the baggage handlers” for the second.

Maybe not right away, but as long as the company is still running, I don't see why not.

On the $100,000 attempt in the second half hour, I studied the middle tier carefully.  BOTH Things at a MAGIC SHOW and People at an AIRPORT were trap categories.  The wrong giver would easily fall for those traps.  TYPES of BOOTHS was also a killer too.  Besides PHONE, VOTING, and I heard TOLL from one of our own here, I thought KISSING for TYPES of BOOTHS.

To be fair, the FAQ Timeline page does mention a perfect showcase bid in Season 1 or 2 as a fact.
While the FAQ page is still not displaying, there is a cached archived version out there that mentions it.

Week 30 (85): April 15-19

  • By Thursday, black asterisks have been added to the Showcase podiums.
  • By Thursday, the Double Showcase rule is in place. It seems possible that this is the week the rule was introduced.
  • The Double Showcase rule at this time states that if the Showcase winner is less than $100 away from the retail price of his own showcase, he wins both showcases.
  • Sometime between January 16, 1973, and the introduction of the Double Showcase rule, a contestant is known to have bid perfectly in the Showcase; this contestant's difference lit up as "00000".

This would appear to be on Bob's daytime show, not Dennis's nighttime one.

Still, the troll/newbie question is not totally clear...

Could be a case of the Mandela Effect.
