The TALK Is Right / Re: The Ultimate Price is Right Strategy Guide
« Last post by LiteBulb88 on Today at 02:52:29 AM »
Double Cross

(Blog post: https://stoseontpir.blogspot.com/2019/07/the-ultimate-price-is-right-strategy_17.html)

Random fact
In the game's first playing, there was no think music:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_-8ymTxNV0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_-8ymTxNV0</a>

Win-loss record
  • Actual (seasons 40-46): 62-34 (64.58%)
  • What it would be by random chance: 1/4 (25%)
The correct prices were...
  • At the very top: 7 playings (7.29%)
  • The second from the top: 39 playings (40.63%)
  • The second from the bottom: 41 playings (42.71%)
  • At the very bottom: 9 playings (9.38%)
Strategy
This game inverts the "pick the endpoints" rule--here, it's DON'T pick the endpoints unless you're absolutely sure the first or last price is right. (I guess the producers actually want this game to be won.) Instead, pick one of the middle two possibilities; which one of those to choose comes down to pricing knowledge.

Well shoot...

I was actually going to sign up for this one earlier but got distracted before I could post.  Guess Iíll yell nonsense from the peanut gallery!
