The key is to revive the game without reopening old wounds.

The real key to reviving the game without reopening old wounds is to get a whole new staff that wasn't around during Super Saver's life. Which is pretty sad, now that I'm thinking about it :(.

(Of course, that doesn't mean anyone on the current staff has any interest in Super Saver. Or know it even existed.)

Since Joey Logano won the Daytona 500, he's in the Chase. Next race is in Atlanta. Looking forward to see who makes it to the Chase next.

Explain. Between that, and ten uses of the phrase 'I love' to start a sentence, I'll hold back on snark, but I'm kind of gobsmacked at this post as a whole right now.
I strongly prefer LCD over eggcrate because it feels much more of the 21st century. When I do see eggcrate nowadays it feels"dated" to me.

As for the second question, it just turned out that a number of games that were in that batch were either favorites or close to. There wasn't much negative to say because I only had a negative opinion on one out of the eleven games revealed.

Card Game: I ranked this game 10. Card Game has taught me to appreciate the role sets can play in making a game enjoyable. I previously didn't like Card Game and found it boring. But ever since the set update Card Game has been a real favorite of mine. It's always a happy day when LCD replaces eggcrate. I love how the old price slides away and the new one slides in and I definitely like that they now show the winning range prior to the reveal. Overall the glitzy and Vegas feel makes this game awesome. I would prefer that it only be played for regular cars though as it has proven not to work well with high end and luxury cars.

About $uper Saver: It absolutely should be revived. Great test of pricing skill and fun play along at home factor. Unfortunately the circumstances that led to the game's retirement were a terrible blight on the show's history. The key is to revive the game without reopening old wounds. This could be done by making the new set green and yellow and by introducing it as a totally new game, perhaps even under a different name, with no on air reference to the previous incantation. I personally feel that Bob took too much of the blame on himself for the incident, which seemed to involve a sore loser contestant more than anything else.

I don't think that it's as much of a tarnish to the show's legacy as you describe... It's been 19 years. They could probably bring it back with a complete replica of the original set and the majority of the viewing audience wouldn't remember it, let alone the reason it was retired. Outside of the hardcore fanbase, no one even knows that one fateful playing even happened.

In regards to the rankings, I didn't think to use a competition-style ranking with ties causing a skip in rank, and since I've already started the process of revealing the results in an ordinal ranking fashion, I'll continue with that method to avoid confusion.

Vader and Fireball,

The irony is that Nam had showcase #1 and let that slip through his hands.

I don't know what is going on here.  Three days in a row that I came up with a good score.
