Title: tpiradam's Price is Right - Challenge Mode
Post by: tpiradam on May 06, 2020, 09:58:07 PM
It's time for another exciting episode of tpiradam's Price is Right! This time we're doing something different. No weird prizes, no throwbacks, no repeating prizes.

BUT

That's not to say there isn't a gimmick to this show! For this show all the prizes will be rather typical TPIR prizes and your regular TPIR games and Showcase Showdown and Showcases, but with the skill level and luck factor upped over 9000%. Game setups will be intentionally difficult and troll-y and will reward the smart, cunning and lucky.

This is an hour format show and unlike my last show I will not trim it down to half the games, half the prizes. That means I need at least nine participants to sign up. If I don't get enough after a certain time I will shut this show down and that will probably be the end of my HYO career.

What I'd like to hear from you is what you think is the most difficult game from the show, current or retired, whether it's luck or skill, and why you feel that way about it. Simple question but I'll be looking for the most creative and well thought out answers.

Here's to hoping for a fun, exciting and challenging game!

I would say Bullseye 1972 because it was the only pricing game to never been won. 0-5. Count me in.

Stack the Deck. Even when it's set up to be won, it's still way too hard. Sometimes sheer, dumb luck can net you the W in this mess of a game!

I'm in! The hardest game to win is 3 Strikes with the current rules. Excluding Punch-a-Bunch and Plinko!, where you can win a lot of money but still "lose" the game, 3 Strikes has the lowest win probability for people who know their prices. (Assuming perfect pricing knowledge, 3 Strikes has a win probability of 37.5%; next lowest are Pass the Buck and 1/2 Off at 50% each, and then Let 'em Roll at 51.29%.)

I'll join the line.

My vote has to go to Pay the Rent. The game is so hard, it's spilling out of the show and into my personal life. Paying real rent is almost as hard.  :-D

Bullseye I was too hard for 1972, but it is a ridiculous trainwreck by today's standards.

If you use perfect binary search, you can eliminate half the guesses every time, for seven guesses. 2^7 is 128 possibilities. If you can price a car within $128, you are Ted Slauson.

There is no realistic pricing strategy a normal contestant can use. There is no realistic game strategy besides "try to go 50/50 perfectly between your guesses and hope the producers were nice" or "go against the odds and pick random numbers and hope you get lucky." There's just nothing about it at all that makes it interesting to play or watch.

And if you try to fudge it in the contestant's favor, like by giving a $500 range, it's still not a "pricing" game, you're still playing "guess your favorite three-digit number", since nobody can really price a car at that level. Why play it for a car? Why not play it for something manageable, like a 3-digit prize, and offer a bigger bonus for getting it? (Oh, right, because then you've invented Clock Game.)

Plinko. People love it, people enjoy it. It's my fave game I've gotta say. Let's just say you won four more chips, for a chance at the whole $50K. But you just end up hitting either 1K or the 0 slots when the chips ricochet towards the middle of the board. That's why even one never won the prize they've offered for almost 20 years now. It's possible, yet impossible. Remember Plinko's 30th Anniversary show? That went plunko.

On The Nose! Even if a contestant gets the price of the car right is not an guarantee that they're actually going to win it! They have to do their attempts at a certain mark no matter what. What's even worse there is that they may not be good at a certain sport that is chosen for them to play! By the way I'm in! I'll see what happens here on this show!

Going a different route since I'm in a minority about this game: Super Ball!! Way too much hand-eye coordination involved, and the difficulty depends on the contestant who plays. Doesn't help that the consolations are pretty chintzy. Skee Ball belongs in an arcade, not The Price is Right.

Post by: tpir04 on May 07, 2020, 08:38:35 AM
Hardest to win...Bullseye 72, hands down. It was bad in 1972, but in 2020 it's mind-blowing. Even for CSSers that know their cars, there are too many options available to make nailing the price easy. And for common contestants that guess $25k on cars in Pocket Change and non-zero-ending cars in 10 Chances...you're toast.

I'm in!

Bullseye 72 has to be the most difficult game, having to guess the price of the car exactly in seven guesses. The only way it could've been won is if a contestant got super lucky on a wild guess or the price ended in ,500.
Title: Re: tpiradam's Price is Right - Challenge Mode SIGNUPS
Post by: Prizes on May 07, 2020, 11:29:13 PM
Letís be a bit different, Lucky $even. And not even with how they set it up on the show currently, which is decently reasonable. But rather, if itís a car you donít know, the second number is very much open for interpretation. Anything beyond that point is a crapshoot unless you know the car. For a game that allows a max of 1.5 digits missed on average number, this absolutely can be brutal. You can theoretically mix in 0s, 9s with any order at your peril. Playing it safe with 5s almost assuredly loses the car, as do most other permutations relative to set up and a possible contestant guess.

Bullseye I at least later in its life gave a $500 range from the third and fourth taped playing, and also subsequently rounded to the nearest $10 on the final playing. Not a total shot in the dark as youíd believe. By purely searching through binary guesses, the $500 range allows 1/7.8125 odds, or in the same ballpark as Freeze Frame. I donít think anybody would put Freeze as a Sisyphean task, right?

Post by: TPIRfan#9821 on May 08, 2020, 12:11:51 AM
I'm in.

10 Chances. Before you boo me for choosing one of the top 3 LFAT games, let me just point out that by the mercy of the show, there have been two modifications to the game to make it easier: removing the 10 second time limit and the zero rule. There is nothing stopping the show from suddenly stopping the tradition, and going back to the 10 second rule, which will make many contestants nowadays lose at least one turn. If that happens, good luck pricing a Lego set from 678, a food processor from 3456, and a car from 12890, and assuming 24 practical solutions for the car, godspeed with a 251 / 3456 chance, or 7.2%, a worse chance than StD knowing the first number. Heck, you even only get about a 1 / 3 chance of even playing for the car to begin with! Name a game in current rotation that has worse odds, that doesn't feature some kind of bailout or partial system of at least $1,000. In fact, name two games in current rotation that even give you less than a 50/50 chance of playing for the car; you will be able to name Golden Road due to the grandiose car at the end, but that's it.

Challenging? Is it like one of those carnival games where at the angle youíre shooting the hoop looks normal but actually the hoop is a squashed oval thatís so narrow the ball is barely able to pass through?

PatrickRox80 come on up here! You sure showed those other in contestant's row they must've thought you really overbid! Now I can't think of anything better to start off the show than giving away one of these!:...

GA: It's a new car!

Now that's a rather dinky car, so how about we double the fun with one of these!:...

GA: It's another new car!

You know good things come in threes right?

GA: That's right! It's a new SUV!

THREE cars! Count em, THREE! We are playing Triple Play! You can't win just one car; you can't win just two; you have to win all three cars. Tell us about this first car!

GA: It's the Mitsubishi Mirage ES Hatchback! Comes with standard equipment including manual transmission, the Mitsubishi Mirage!

Here we have two prices:

(https://i.imgur.com/Md0m8wd.png)

What I want you to do is pick the price closest to that car's actual retail price without going over, and you'll advance to the next car. $15,495 or $15,785?

Wow, I was torn between $500 and $600. Good thing I thought it was more expensive at the cost of my competitors. Hope none of you minds the pun.  :P

Not even giving me $300 to play with? Okay, if that's how you want to do things. It seems like you want me to go with the lower price, but then again this is the first car. How about we go with $15,785?

*DING*

He's right! Actual retail price is $15,801. That wasn't so difficult now was it? Onto the second car!

(https://i.imgur.com/jgDl0E8.png)

GA: It's the Hyundai Elantra Essential Sedan! Comes with standard equipment including manual transmission, the Hyundai Elantra!

A tad more difficult now. We have three prices to pick from. $20,985, $21,205 or $21,450?

Less than $500 between the three prices is a tad? Sure thing.

I'm not one to apply logic the way other players here do, so I'm going to pick one at random. I'm going to say $21,205.

So, this line of thinking could be part of the trap, but the tractor's -98 ending sticks out to me as notable for being $1 off from -99 and $2 off from -00, whereas the gazebo's -95 allows much greater room in that regard, wherein either one of the aforementioned -99, -00 endings would grant me the win, to expand on 3≤*41*333,667's close bargains postulation. I'll run with that train of thought. Gazebo it is.

This is supposed to be a challenge. This setup is way too easy :P

Vega Protein
Avalon Organics Shampoo
One-A-Day Gummies
Olay Active Hydrating Hydration Active
O'Keeffe's Hand Cream

Just prepare the buzzer, because the earliest I'm even considering bailing out on is $4,000. Just plow through the first three.

Alright. If that protein powder is in that bag, you will win $1,000...

It sure is! And he wants to go on! He's going to risk his $1,000 and see if that shampoo is in this second bag...

*BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ* *LOSING HORNS*

Aw no! It was the hand cream in that bag. Let's see how you did with the rest of them.

(https://i.imgur.com/I68K7vC.png)

You had the hand cream and the shampoo mixed up! I'm sorry TPIRfan#9821, perhaps you will get it back at the big wheel which is coming up right after these messages!...

Here we are at our first Showcase Showdown of the day. Each of you will spin the wheel and the closest to a dollar in one or a combination of two spins without going over will be in our Showcase at the end of the show. If you get the $1.00 in one spin or a combination of two spins you will win $1,000 and receive a bonus spin. In that bonus spin the .05 or .15 will net you an extra $5,000 BUT if you get that $1.00 again in your bonus spin you will win $10,000! Make sure to spin it hard because if it doesn't go all the way around it will not count. Prizes, since you've won the most of the three so far you will spin last. Go ahead PatrickRox80 and give it a go!

PatrickRox80

Prizes

(Please pick two numbers, 1-20, and what amount you wish to stay on. Numbers are randomized for each individual and spin and have been sent to a moderator (not Prizes) to be fair.)

I'll just do mine early, since I don't see any strategic advantage in going on.

Spin 20, 20, bonus spin 20, I'll stop at whatever beats PatrickRox80 and is over $0.49.

Alright PatrickRox80 is up first. There goes that dollar, does it have enough to come around again? It's going to try...

70

70 cents. It looks like he will stay with that number. Here comes TPIRfan#9821... He missed out on $16,000 in It's in the Bag, hoping to get some of that back with the big wheel, and it looks like he just might!...

1.00

*DINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDING*

(https://i.imgur.com/YepfU1d.png)

He did it! 1.00! $1,000! Step over there to the scoreboard. You'll have your bonus spin as soon as Prizes finishes with her spins. The best she can do right now is tie...

Post by: tpiradam on May 13, 2020, 11:25:55 AM
Here goes her first spin. And look at this! Are we going to have two dollar spinners?!...

5

So close! One more spin. We're looking for that 95 cents now. There it goes...

90

95 cents total. A good score any other day. Thank you Prizes, enjoy your prizes! Back here at the wheel please TPIRfan#9821. It's time for your bonus spin. Make sure it goes all the way around or it doesn't count. Land on the 5 or 15 and you get an extra $5,000. Get that dollar again and you'll take home $10,000! Give it a go!

(one number between 1 and 20)

I can tell you anecdotally that all the packages I've seen from Chevy end in 5, and I think all their cars end in 0 or 5, so I'd guess 25 for the end if that weather package is the only option.

No clue on the cost of the Malibu, however. I'd hope it's not an 29 or 28k car, but truthfully, I've got no darn clue.

My numbers are 2, 6, 11, and 20; use them in that order for whatever spins I may have. If I'm in the lead after my first spin, I'll stay if and only if I have at least 55 cents. If I'm tied after my first spin, I'll stay if and only if I have at least 70 cents. Of course, if I'm behind after my first spin, I'll spin again.

$419 got me on stage, so letís go #4 and #19.

Ok. Here goes gamesurf with his first spin. There goes the dollar...let's see what the wheel will stop on...

55

55 cents. That's a tough one. Do you wish to stay or spin again?

He's being brave and spinning again! Ohh this could be pretty good if it stops. Please stop!...

60

*MRRRRRRRRRRP*

Aw it went on and you've gone over. Thank you gamesurf. LiteBulb88 is up! Wow what a spin! That will have no problem getting all the way around. Does it have enough oomph to get to that dollar though?

70

Not quite but 70 is a decent score and it looks like he'll settle on that. wpghi5 has spend the whole show in Contestant's Row, let's see if he can knock it out of the park with the big wheel here...

Looking to beat 70 cents. Here comes that dollar a little too fast but let's see where it stops...

80

Now TPIRfan#9821, as the top winner you have the pleasure of bidding on the first Showcase or passing it to wpghi5 and bidding on the second Showcase. Now with all that info swimming around in your head, let's take a look at that first Showcase!...

GA: This Showcase is filled with prizes designed to make your life EASY! And it starts with this collection of robotic appliances!

Each of these 'smart' devices can easily be controlled with the simplicity of an app on your phone meaning the most challenging of chores can be handled without having to leave the couch!

TPIRfan#9821, do you wish to bid or pass on that Showcase?

Post by: TPIRfan#9821 on May 15, 2020, 10:20:54 PM
...Hold on, I'm getting a feeling of deja vu. I thought I was the one who tried to give you a Chevy Spark? Maybe it was two Chevy Sparks? I remember something about you missing a target by five bucks with something relating to options, and a Hot Wheels car...? :P


I can tell you the base MSRP on a vanilla Spark LS is $14,065, upgrading to automatic is another $1,100, premium paint is $395 (Caribbean Blue and Orange Burst cost the same amount), floor mats are $250 (unless they added another package recently, it's the Winter/Summer Floor Mat Package I had), engine block heater is $100 (although it might be $50, but I might be confusing it with something else), and the cargo net is $70.

Can I just pass the other parts of the showcase to wpghi5 and only bid on the car? :P

I'll bidding $19,999. I do think the electronics are pricey, but this is challenge mode we're talking about  8-)

My bids from home: $21,012/$27,372.

On SC1, I just barely want to cover that $251ish area if the ending ARP rule were to apply, but I'm (obviously) acting upon the assumption it likely isn't. SC2 notably features the Millenium Falcon LEGO set, which my trivia days tell me has a set variation with THE most pieces of any public set, ever. But I'm not convinced it's this one. I think those are deceptively looking in price. Not as much you'd think given the massive sizes of the sets, y'know?

***PEANUT GALLERY***

No clue about most of the showcase (I'd say $1,000 to $1,500 for the Lego Star Wars stuff and $200 for the phone as a complete guess), but if the truck is a base level SR 4x4, I would suggest ~$29,000 to $30,000 for the truck.  If it's supposed to be a TRD Off-Road like the image suggests, I would suggest high 30s or possibly even low 40s for the truck instead.

Well unlike my opponent here who likes to be "lengthy" in his setup for a bid I am just going to keep it short and simple and say $25,000.  :-?

That was actually a lot of fun to do. Thank you to all who participated especially as members of the peanut gallery. If you didn't get picked for this show please do try out for my next one. There was no favouritism or anything when it came to choosing I basically went with what I felt were the best and most thought out answers to my question and if there was a repeat answer it was first come first serve. Here's a rundown of the winnings:

TPIRFan9821 ($25,881)
Prizes ($5,800)
wpghi5 ($1,591)
patrickrox80 ($1,200)
LiteBulb88 ($874)
gamesurf ($500)
Plinkoman ($300)
123123123 ($300)
geniusinmath ($300)
Jayprice05 ($300)
tpir04 ($300)
JayC ($300)

Now for a rundown about the show itself. I was inspired from earlier HYO shows that were 'evil' or 'mean'. I wanted to do something similar without giving the preface of it being 'evil'. The setups were challenging yes but not as challenging as they seemed:

Triple Play: All the correct choices were the last price therefore giving the biggest spread for the vehicle's ARP
Bargain Game: Y'all had it basically figured out with the differences bravo!
It's In the Bag: It was not set up to be fully won. My goal was to make the $1,000 an easy giveaway and hope someone would bail therefore guaranteeing them the $1,000
Take Two: The winning combo was the first two prizes.
Bonus Game: It was a crapshoot basically but by putting the bonus in the last window I hoped that that would've been the easiest of the four and had that been the only one right make for an exciting win.
Money Game: Nothing really easy about this one it was meant to be mean  :-D

Showcases: TPIRfan#9821 was a little bit low on the price of the spark but I feel if he had it in Canadian prices as all my shows are he may have gotten even closer. As for the Tacoma base price for the base model in Canada hovers around $40K and the picture was taken directly from the build and price website so what you saw was the actual model. Good on GameShowFan9001 for sleuthing that detail out.

It will be a little while before my next show as thankfully this one wrapped up when it did as I was surprised to find out this morning I go back to work next week with longer hours for the next two weeks leaving me little leisure time like the past 8 weeks. For my next show I plan to do a throwback to a year in the past featuring games AND PRIZES from that year so I hope that one works out. In the meantime thank you again to all who participated and I hope y'all stay safe and healthy!

Very enjoyable show, tpiradam. While all the games were definitely harder, nothing seemed flat out impossible (except Money Game  :-))

Can't wait to see what you have in store for your next show
