The TALK Is Right / Re: Is a quickie cash game possible?

How so? It would seem to me that the descriptions would take the same amount of time either way.

It would eliminate "George, tell us about the next item" three times. It would also allow an easier job for the music department. IMO the SPs aren't as crucial in terms of suspense as they are in Shell/Bonus.

While cash games aren't practical without SP/GPs, I wouldn't mind cash occassionaly being used as a prize in Safe Crackers or 2 For The Price of 1 (simply make it flash on the screen similar to when its offered in the showcases), and usually as $5000. However, don't allow the total prize package to be revealed in this case (obviously). Other games that I feel could offer cash (even if not quickies) are if Master Key or Rat Race for the middle lock/second prize offered around $1500-$3000 or so of cash, since not only is cash a cool prize, it saves some time from reading copy.

What if they went back to revealing all 4 SPs at once in Punch-A-Bunch? Certainly that would save a good 15-20 seconds.

I notice a lot of familiar sound effects, too. The buzz-in sound is the Family Feud buzz-in, and I swear that was the Price/CBS bell too.
Just checked, taped at Television City, Studio 33 (Bob Barker Studio)

(per the CBS Television City website under "Shows" menu, February 1986 listings show an "On A Roll Pilot")

After noticing that On A Roll is a pretty cool amalgam of Wheel and High Rollers, this would've had some potential for it to be a series. I really did like it and David Sparks wasn't bad as the host of that show.

Also, there was the last 2 or 3 seconds of Dig We Must when the male contestant solved both puzzles.

Yes, Rent is a 7.

There's one cash game that has not been mention...which is probably about the closest to a quickie cash game as we've gotten. Fortune Hunter, which, was still a 5.5, so...

Host Your Own! / Re: The Higgins Edition of Price is Right! [Episode 6] - PG6

That was around the ballpark I was thinking. I'll write it for $1,876, one-thousand eight-hundred and seventy-six and 00/100 (although I guess there's no room on the check to write it out!)

Just totally to satisfy my curiosity, what's significant about the check number, 7298? I like wondering at small details like that!
