Title: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (IUFB#5)
Post by: tpiradam on July 31, 2019, 07:13:21 PM
Hello all! I am so excited that HYO has resumed. I've spent some time toying with multiple ideas for a show but I figure for it's return I'll start with a 'basic' one-hour show. Extravagant prizes and lots of glitz and glamour! The vast majority of prices are in Canadian dollars. Sign ups will commence now and close up Sunday evening with the show beginning on Monday the 5th. I need at least nine people to sign up. The contestant selection process will go as follow. I'd like you to tell me which game you think you'd excel at and why. I'm looking for more than 'Double Prices because its 50/50', I'm looking for substance. Now for the rules:

- 24hr response time limit. If you are unable to respond within this time limit please let me know and I will wave the penalty. Otherwise a failure to respond will result in a penalty.
- Audience participation is definitely allowed; however I would prefer that the candor be a little more calmer. No heckling from the audience please!

I will PM when you are called on down. After that you are on your own to keep track of when it's your turn to bid and onstage and so on. I'm hoping for a fun and exciting show and that everyone has a ton of fun! This could be the start of the rebirth of a fun and successful HYO career :)

I believe I would do best at 1/2 Off. I could easily judge the 1/2 off price from the actual price on each pair of SPs, and, for as long as I can remember, I have had a knack for picking the right box in the main game.

Post by: JayC on July 31, 2019, 10:49:11 PM
I believe I would excel at Hole in One-- I can do at least reasonably well placing the groceries in order from least to most expensive and I am very good with putting straight.

Canada, eh?  :-D And you know I'm in!  :-)

As for a game I think I'd excel at? Probably That's Too Much. It sounds peculiar, I know, but the main thing you need to know in this admittedly tough game is a general idea of car prices and where you typically have to stop (3rd to 8th spots). Since I spend way too much time looking for car prices, I think I could win this game if it came up. Call me crazy.  ;-)

I would go for Card Game. Yet if I would stumble upon getting the $1000 card I would really need to zero in on getting close to the price of the car there. Of course it has to be at least $999 away from the price of the car. Hopefully the temples in my brain can do wonders with that! I wonder if my eyes and/or eyebrows can do as well?! Weird? Yes! Yet you never know! Lol!

I'd be down to join. Who doesn't like Canada?

If I had to choose one game, it would have to be Bonkers. Do I know the last digit in the price of a Ski-Doo? Absolutely not. But the game does a great job of combining two of my best skills. My short distance speed would get me a good amount of guesses and my uncanny ability to be completely ignorant would mean that I wouldn't look at the crowd even once.  :-D

Post by: TPIRfan#9821 on August 02, 2019, 03:48:44 AM
I'll throw my hat into the ring!

A game I would certainly excel at would be Superball. I definitely have a grasp of the prices of the small prizes, and I am really good at skeeball. Sure, it's retired in the US, but that doesn't mean it can't show in the Canadian version!

Post by: GameShowFan9001 on August 04, 2019, 06:10:45 PM
One game I think I would excel at (and have actually mostly excelled at while playing along at home) is Triple Play, not necessarily due to the gameplay itself, but more due to having extensive knowledge of the base prices of the cars theyíve been using for this game, along with the (to me) easy setups theyíve been using for the last several years with $2,000+ gaps between each fake price.  If I remember correctly, Iíve been able to "win" each car with nearly 100% accuracy.

Post by: geniusinmath on August 04, 2019, 08:00:42 PM
One game I think I will excel at is Grand Game. I play along with the show and usually win 95% of the time.

Post by: priceguy on August 04, 2019, 10:57:17 PM
Well, I am Canadian so I guess I should partake here.

I think I'd be good at Clock Game. I'm a fast talker when I want to be and could probably rattle off prices at a good speed.

$5,198! JayC thatís you! Come up here on stage!

(https://i.imgur.com/EeEvt0W.png)

Welcome on stage JayC! Now we couldnít think of any better way to kick this show off than taking a trip down the Golden Road! It all begins with this single beefsteak tomato which leads on to this:...

Announcer: A new fireplace!

(https://i.imgur.com/vPKP2OC.jpg)

This Cole Electric Media Fireplace will keep your room nice and toasty while housing your television and has shelving for books or movies!

Now as you know from there we continue on down the Golden Road to something bigger and better, like this!:...

Announcer: A new ring!

(https://i.imgur.com/LatT6Zu.jpg)

From the Neiman Marcus catalogue the David Yurman Custom Albion Ring makes a big statement and is sure to catch the eye of everyone as you walk into the room!

And thatís not all! As you know at the end of the Golden Road we always have something exquisite! Something extravagant! And today is no exception! Today at the end of the Golden Road we have a prize that is more than $98,000! Letís see what it is!!!:...

Announcer: A new BMW convertible!!!

(https://i.imgur.com/qqwsjAW.jpg)

The 2019 BMW M4 Cabriolet! Comes with standard equipment, Sakhir Orange Metallic II, Premium Package and Driver Assistance Package, the BMW M4 Cabriolet!

That tomato is 52 cents. Letís head over to that fireplace.

In the price the last two numbers are 3 and 0. The first number is either a 5 or a 2. What do you say?

Post by: JayC on August 06, 2019, 11:04:06 PM
Very excited to be playing Golden Road!

I will go with 5 for the first number.

*dingdingding*

A 5! $530. Youíve won that and now we go on further down the Golden Road to this ring.

(https://i.imgur.com/U9N64iP.png)

In the price of the ring there are four numbers but one is missing. Using the numbers in the price of the fireplace tell us is that missing number a 5, a 3 or a 0?
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)

I'm going to go with the 3 Adam!
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)
Post by: tpiradam on August 07, 2019, 11:34:45 AM
Ok. Heís going with a 3.

If itís a three youíll go on further to play for that BMW!

It is...

(https://i.imgur.com/NiLn9ao.png)

*dingdingdingdingdingdingdingding*

A three! Letís go get that BMW! Five numbers in the price.

(https://i.imgur.com/g2nB65H.png)

Look at that. $98,000+! That missing number. Is it the 6, the 3, the 0 or the 9 that goes in that space?
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)
Post by: tpir04 on August 07, 2019, 12:44:10 PM
I would recommend the 0. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but the correct missing number for each prize would make up the price of the fireplace, $530.
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)
Post by: DarkShockBro on August 07, 2019, 01:56:41 PM
I disagree. Iíd go 6.

Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)
Post by: JayC on August 07, 2019, 03:57:25 PM
This is a tough call-- I'm ruling out 3 since it was the correct number for the last prize, and 9 would be repeating. That leaves 6 and 0, tpir04 has a good point about the 0, but 6 looks good in the price too.

I'm going to go with... 0. Hoping tpir04's hunch is correct!
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)
Post by: tpiradam on August 07, 2019, 10:07:28 PM
Alright. If itís a 0 you are the owner of a brand new BMW convertible.







I can just see you whipping around town now!







You like orange right? Itís a beautiful colour on a car.







That number is!...

(https://i.imgur.com/JnxT0kz.png)

Aww it was a three! No convertible for you but you did win those other prizes and youíll have a shot at our Showcase Showdown!
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG 1)
Post by: JayC on August 07, 2019, 10:53:20 PM
Ouch, 3 actually was the right choice. Turns out 123 was the one I should've listened to. Oh well, still won some nice prizes.

That sounds like an incredible trip, and I have something that may make it even more incredible, don't I?

Announcer: You sure do how about $50,000 in cash?!?!

(https://i.imgur.com/GdMaKKE.png)

$50,000 in cash would go a looooooong way on your trip that's for sure! We're playing Grand Game for $50,000 but first we're going to start you off with $5. Target Price today:

$8.50

$8.50. Four of these grocery items are priced below $8.50. Two are above. If you pick one that is less than the target price we will move that $5 up by adding a zero at the end. If you successfully choose the four below the target price you win $50,000. Picking any of the two higher than the target price ends the game. Let's hear about those grocery items please!

Announcer: Alright. First we have a 2L tub of premium Canadian-made ice cream dessert.

(https://i.imgur.com/P4ScD1z.png)

Next up is a 600g package of Chicken and Bacon Sacchettini pasta

(https://i.imgur.com/fn7jqM5.png)

And finally we have a 12pk Container of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! (best before date irrelevant)

I had a feeling that was expensive.  :-D

In any case, let's start with the bathtub. I would appreciate the audience helping me out, since they all look about $3,500 to me.

Post by: 123123123 on August 13, 2019, 03:24:49 PM
It might be a clear and obvious trap I'm falling into here, but I'd pick the vase next. A vase can't possibly be that much, right?

I'd then avoid the TV, but it is a tossup between tv/sofa for me. Good luck though.

Oh no! The sofa was $3,500! Let's take a look at what he should've picked:

You needed the TV and the vase for the win. I'm sorry DarkShockBro. Perhaps you'll get it back at the Showcase Showdown which is coming up right after this!...
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (SS#1)
Post by: tpiradam on August 13, 2019, 08:25:15 PM
Here we are with the first Showcase Showdown of the day! Each of you will spin the wheel. The one who gets closest to 1.00 without going over in one spin or a combinations of two spins will be in the Showcase at the end of the show. If you should be so fortunate as to get the 1.00 in one or a combination of two spins you will receive a $1,000 bonus! In that bonus spin if it lands in the 5 or 15 you win $10,000 BUT if you get that 1.00 in your bonus spin you will win $25,000!

Here's how the Showcase Showdown will play out. Numbers 1-20. Pick two numbers and tell me what amount you'd stop on in your first spin. One number correlates to two values for example 1 could equal 90 in spin #1 and 95 in spin #2 so it is possible to pick the same number for both of your spins if you choose to do so. The numbers have been matched to a value and cu has a copy of the numbers just in case anyone has any rifts about what they picked etc...

1st:  DarkShockBro: ($3,589)
2nd: priceguy:         ($5,878)
3rd: JayC:              ($12,037)

Alright there goes DarkShockBro's first spin. Around and around it goes and stops on...

30

30 cents and it looks like he will be spinning again. This isn't looking too good. Hurry up get off that number!...

80

*MRRRRRRRRRRRRRRPPP*

Ohhhh I'm very sorry DarkShockBro. Thank you very much for being with us today! Up next with a giant nametag so that I no longer get their nametag mixed up, tpir04! Oh wow that was a big spin! No need to worry if that will go all the way around or not. Oh look at this! Look at what's coming on down here! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!...

1.00

(https://i.imgur.com/zpucnzH.png)

One dollar! You've won $1,000 tpir04! Take your spot over by the scoreboard there and wait for your bonus spin! Up next is JayC. The best you can do is tie which will result in a spinoff on top of another $1,000 win...

55

55 cents. One more spin. Looking for that 45 cents. There it goes but it doesnít look like itís going to come back around...

15

15 and 55 is not enough. Thank you JayC enjoy your prizes! Step right over here tpir04 for your bonus spin! 5 or 15 gets you $10,000.  Get the dollar again and you will win $25,000! Spin it hard because if it doesnít go all the way around it does not count.

Same as before except one number 1-20.

Announcer: A new car!

That very well may be your car GameShowFan! And notice we already gave you the price, normally the hard part. All you have to do to win that car is to spell C-A-R. Simple as that. We're playing Spelling Bee!

There are 11 C's, 11 A's, 6 R's and two cars that say CAR on them. You will start off with two free cards and you can win three more by telling us the prices of these prizes here and if you're within $10 above or below you win the prize and a card off the board. If you guess the prize exactly right you win all the prizes and you win all three choices of the cards regardless of what happens previously. Tell us about those prizes please:...

Post by: TPIRfan#9821 on August 19, 2019, 10:00:09 PM
*Peanut Gallery*

Go like $26 or $27. I know a Funko figure is normally something like $12.50 in the US. I don't know the conversion from Canadian to American, but I would assume it is something close to the lower end, while allowing for leeway just in case prices skyrocket in Canada.

Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (IUFB#5)
Post by: tpir04 on August 20, 2019, 11:17:59 AM
I'd say $20 or so. (I keep forgetting that it's $CAD and not $USD!)

Post by: GameShowFan9001 on August 20, 2019, 04:53:21 PM
I'd hate to blow it on my first ever game...
I guess I'll say $20, and card #30 if I win it.  If it's exactly right, I'll also take cards 3 and 4.


At this point, I'm just praying that I can at least get another card...
Title: Re: tpiradam's The Price is Right - Canadian Edition (PG#5)
Post by: tpiradam on August 20, 2019, 05:56:10 PM
Ok, he says $20 for the movie. If he's within $10 above or below he wins and gets to pick another card. What is the price?!...

$30

*ding*

$30! You just barely got it! He'll take card #30 as a result.

You now have three cards. Hypothetically you could spell C-A-R but you also could not. On each of those cards it says $2,000. Times three is $6,000. I'm giving you the option to bail now with $6,000 and forget about that car or we can look at one card at a time.

(Also of note just like with the Showcase Showdowns the card results were randomized and a copy sent to an admin)
