That's Too Much was refurbished as well, it was one of the games that had a new look debut on the primetime reality show specials in 2016.

For me personally my favorite refurbishment is Master Key, followed by Bullseye, 3 Strikes, Any Number, and Card Game. Master Key just looks more sleek and not small and dated now, Bullseye's old set was definitely dated, I like incorporating baseball further into 3 Strikes, the new Any Number set was not a big change from the previous but definitely made it more sleek, and the current Card Game set added much needed pizazz to a game that is otherwise not that exciting. Most Expensive and Squeeze Play are honorable mentions, Most Expensive's set was dated and adding a logo was nice, and the battleship gray never really looked right for Squeeze Play.

Worst for me- Make Your Mark, Side by Side, and 10 Chances. Make Your Mark was just horrid and while the original Side by Side set was too 90s this new set looks like a vintage Holiday Inn. Also don't like the current 10 Chances set, wish they just ditched the wicker and otherwise kept it mostly the same.

Other thoughts: The That's Too Much, It's in the Bag, Pushover, Punch a Bunch, and 1/2 Off set refurbishings weren't overly necessary, they mostly just seemed like change for the sake of change.
I didn't like the Double Prices refurbishing at first, but it's grown on me.

Overall Best: Most Expensive. The previous numbers were too simple and the carpet really adds something.
Overall Worst: Bonus Game. The electronic monitors add the appearance of tampering to the contestant and audience.
Best Paint Job: Range Game.
Worst Paint Job: 1/2 Off. Why are they so in love with orange?

Eazy as 1-2-3 -2
Lucky Seven -2: In the words of an old Saturday Night Live sketch with David Spade: "Buh-Bye."
Safe Crackers -2

Regardless of the ending, for me, history was made.  While I'm still not a fan of Money and a spin in the bonus round (unless it's optional), tonight was the episode where it was necessary

There appears to have been a quoting mistake on SeaBreeze341's part, copying the wrong scores and most noticeably bringing Shopping Spree back to life. For now, I'll be quoting JayC's post.

I'm going to say this means SeaBreeze341 gets another post, as the one just above this would not count. (Quote the most recent one instead of whichever one you found before.)

I'll await a review, of course.

Quote
Well I don't see why SeaBreeze's votes wouldn't count, it was only the standings that were incorrect and all three games for which votes were cast are still alive. So I am going to take those into account. Additionally, the standings below account for my votes of Plinko (+2) Push Over (-2) and Magic # (+2), as well as mecha and metal's votes, and are accurate as far as I know, at least until I can get back to my computer and verify.


I have no idea what happened (sorry for whatever occurred)!  I usually make sure I'm copying from the most recent post (maybe I checked back and...man, I don't know).  Typically if a post occurred between my initial vote and my submission, my setting would warn of that before my post or posts become official.

Anyway, hopefully there won't be any disasters today!

Pick-A-Pair -2 (I miss the Ferris Wheel too.  Though I respect the change based on the reasons for the update)
Lucky $even -2 (Miss the "block" numbers more than the Ferris Wheel.  Don't miss the original set as much, however)
Plinko -2 (Still miss the original set)

Is anyone who watched still recovering from tonight's episode of Press Your Luck, or is it just me that is still recovering from the suspense and excitement of what happened tonight? But no spoilers here as the Whammy featuring the chorus that sang "You Suck" to the tune of Johann Strauss II & Johannes Brahms' "Blue Danube Waltz" has to be on in the top 3 of my favorite whammies from the revival.

+2 to Hole in One (or Two): an outright classic.
