My takeaways:
- That sure was a funky car price on Card Game.
- That’s Too Much! was played for a slightly more expensive car. I wonder why …

Out In Left Field / Re: Game shows that deserve a revival
« Last post by ooboh on Today at 10:05:20 AM »
I would keep the 2001 set of Card Sharks but (obviously) use the original format.

If there’s one show that’s ripe for a revival after 15 years off the air, it’s clearly Press Your Luck. You can combine the updated set (look up “Press Your Luck 2013” on YouTube and look at the first video that comes up, although I wish the contestant island resembled the original Press Your Luck) with the elements of the original Press Your Luck (better 2D-animated Whammies, classic squares like Add-A-One, the board is actually arranged in a rectangle) with the elements of Whammy! (Big Bank, and the two halves of a car key, which was ripped off on Wheel of Fortune 8 years later). We can give the Board values a much-given boost (think $6,000/$8,000/$10,000 + spin for Square 4).If this is executed correctly, then we’ve got the next hit reboot on our hands.

I don't know if this is a popular opinion, but how about Greed?

Thank you for posting.  It was such a nice "gift" to receive during Premiere Week.   I remember that preemption so vividly.  Hard to believe the Season 22 premiere was 25 years ago.

Three words: Press Your Luck (and none of that GSN Whammy garbage).

I'd have liked to have seen similar for the money cards as well really, although I suspect the budget factored into why it was merely a push/a bust depending on the time period and era.
I should point out, the Perry series didn't change the doubles rule from "loss" to "push" until after one episode where a contestant got all four 3's in the deck in succession.

And with the push rule in-- none of this going all-in on deuces and aces and getting burned!

You know there's one thing I often wondered about that.......what if a contestant in the front game thought a repeat card was due to come up? I know they could freeze if they had control up to the last question of a round, but could they have hypothetically guessed it was to be the same if they wanted? I've always thought it was a major flaw that you could get burned by those there, even losing games outright for it. At the very least if they HAD to pick higher or lower only, I think they shoulda had a rule where if one repeated it was changed automatically. I'd have liked to have seen similar for the money cards as well really, although I suspect the budget factored into why it was merely a push/a bust depending on the time period and era.

Its given that people love to win a lot of loot on game shows.  Let's think outside the box here.  The cash, cars and trips are out of play for this question.

From my perspective some unusual game show prizes:

Classic Concentration--200 California Lottery Tickets

High Rollers--the infamous $10,000 antique fishbowl. (Trebek era)

What prizes from any game show past or present did you find unusual?

Speaking of Classic Concentration, their 1000th show offered a huge party for 25 people.
