~~I think they should do away with the "come on downs" because the person doesn't have to price anything in order to qualify for contestants row. :evil: ~~  #notserious

I agree with CBSpromoman's  points 100%.  I get why some people don't like the wheel because it doesn't involve pricing, but it serves its purpose well.  It gives all 3 people involved an equal shot at the showcase and can even provide somebody who didn't win anything in their pricing game another chance to win something should they advance to the showcase.  Sure there's other ideas that would work just as well as a qualifying round for the showcase like "The Price WAS Right" from TnPIR '94, but the wheel creates suspense, rewards you for a perfect spin of $1.00 not once but twice if you're lucky, and (with Drew moreso than Bob) gives the players an extra 15 seconds of fame while saying hi to their friends and family.  If the "it doesn't fit with the rest of the show" logic were applied to say... Wheel of Fortune, one could argue that they shouldn't have the toss-up puzzles because the players don't actually spin the wheel to play them.

0-1, but I'm very happy that the Packers were shown the door and I'm on the Falcons wagon.

Now, if Genghis Tom and the Patriots can be conquered, that would be the icing on the cake.
Out In Left Field / New Pricing Game Idea: Puzzle Game
« Last post by silverice878 on Today at 05:31:50 PM »
This is a refination of the Puzzler concept I came up with back in 2013.

Where it would be played: Turntable
Type of game: SP
What it would be played for: Car

How it works: The first and last digits are shown on oversized puzzle pieces. There are seven numbers listed on oversized puzzle pieces below the first and last digits. The contestants win chances to guess the price if they can guess the price of the three prizes. If they get the prices right on the SPs, they get three chances to guess the price of the car. They select three puzzle pieces of the 7 and fit into the spaces. Correct numbers are lit up, and the amount of numbers that are out of order is shown, if any. If the contestant pieces together the price of the car in three tries or less, he/she wins.

My original Puzzler concept, in comparison:,20695.msg367146.html#msg367146

If you were to craft a Showcase Showdown that involved pricing skills like everything else on the show, what would you do?

I wouldn't. It's a qualifying round and I don't believe everything HAS to involve pricing something.

The contestants who are spinning the wheel have ALREADY won something to be there. There is at least a certain amount of strategy involved despite the factor of luck: you still have to decide how close to a dollar is TOO close to avoid going over AND still beating those who spin after you.

In the half-hour days, the two top winners went to the showcase with no qualifying round at all, but that meant that all three contestants could have won their pricing games and the third-place winner was just "unlucky" enough to win less than the other two, which is something that's not entirely within their control, even if they're fantastic at pricing items. The Big Wheel at least gave all contestants the same chance to make it that far.
