Since we are on the topic of Shell Game, does anyone know why Drew no longer allows the contestants to place the chips themselves?  I can't imagine that saved much more time than allowing them to do it...

I chalk it up to him just not paying that much attention to the intricacies of each game in his hosting style. He also doesn't let the contestant "Pass the Buck" anymore, he placed the marks on "Make Your Mark", and on at least one occasion he didn't even have the contestant open the safe.

Price is Right Recaps! / Re: 7763K - 06/23/17 Recap Thread

Make Your Move was somewhat of a toss-up because the two choices for Hawaii were close to each other, but $532 seemed a little too cheap for the luggage.

Pretty difficult Vend-O-Price. I thought the Jello would be under a dollar or a little over a dollar at most and the crackers would be in the mid $3 to $4.99 range. The prize package was also pretty odd because there were several items included that all had to be described and playoffs were mentioned but nothing shown on the TV (I assume they meant NFL playoffs given the original airdate). I wonder if there was more to be shown or talked about that was specifically football during the prize package but they edited it out before airing it today since obviously the playoffs are long over now.

So when was the last time the show had a car price ending in 000? Really strange to see that in TTM.
Per tpirstats.com, October 16, 2013 - coincidentally, in that case, it was also a Mini Cooper in That's Too Much (a $25,000 Cooper Paceman). October 10th of that season also had a $17,000 Kia Soul in Gas Money.

Nice to see that Shell Game had been hiding on this show all along - really hoped it wouldn't skip nearly 5 months of shows, especially when Cliff Hangers and Secret "X" had both skipped unusually long periods of time around this show too.

Because they have the choice to quit the game at that point. If there's no risk involved, the game becomes less exciting.
D'oh, not sure how I forgot about something so obvious when I asked that.

Alright Show today.

That Setup in Vend-O-Price was a loss waiting to happened.

Shell Game was played for the 2nd time this Month.
The last time it was played twice in a Calendar Month, all the way back in May 2006.

We got our 4th 3-Way Spinoff ( Includes the 3-Way Bonus Spinoff ) this season.
We haven't had this many since Season 38 ( 5 )

Why does the contestant still get cash if they lose on the first three grocery products ($1/$10/$100) in Grand Game, but nothing if they lose on the fourth grocery product ($1,000)?

Because they have the choice to quit the game at that point. If there's no risk involved, the game becomes less exciting.

First of all, thanks for running this. You're a great host who has results out quick and is consistent, it's appreciated.

Anyway, I feel like I did better but I have a lot more improvement to go. I had it together for a little while and fell apart late in the season, so it goes. Hopefully next year's another step forward instead of more DOBs, since I want to be more aggressive.

By the way, is there a list of dates for scrimmages?
