The TALK Is Right / Re: Unique Pricing game lineups
« Last post by William on February 17, 2018, 07:12:44 PM »
Easily for me, Walk of Fame. I always felt that it was retired because it was a four prize game that took an awkward amount of time to play. The car game played with it in the same half often had to either be a quickie like Double Prices or Squeeze Play.

Do you know of a specific date of this happening? Based on the pricing game calendars, there doesn't seem to be any confirmed example of this kind of lineup in the game's lifespan.

Guess Iíll throw in another vote for Check Game. The old-fashioned style set and the think music which I think debuted in late season 16 goes together very well.

The Youtube embed code is really wonky here...

You have to remove the "s" from the "https:/"  in the URL in order for it to embed properly. It doesn't like it otherwise.

Just had the same problem in the post about how the PlayTape logo may have been the inspiration for the TPIR dollar mark. Posted a video to Techmoan's PlayTape video, and it said "Invalid YouTube Link". And I'm running Firefox 58.0.1 on Ubuntu 64-bit.

Out In Left Field / Possible origin of the iconic TPIR dollar mark?
« Last post by wvoutlaw2002 on February 17, 2018, 04:31:53 PM »
A while back, I was watching a video on YouTube from Techmoan. (I love his videos about retro tech.) Well anyway, he had a video about a long-forgotten audio format called PlayTape.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBSGuR589_Q (Posting a link to the video because this board claims it's an invalid YouTube link.)

The one thing which struck me the most about the video was the PlayTape logo. I immediately thought, "that looks so much like the TPIR dollar mark". So I decided to edit the PT logo in GIMP, and came up with the TPIR dollar mark.

I attached the PT logo and TPIR dollar mark (made from the PT logo in GIMP) for comparison purposes.

Question: Is this the true origin of the TPIR dollar mark?

Chalk up another vote for the Check Game!

The giant check and huge feather pen provide wonderful aesthetics, the old fashioned wood makes for an elegant set piece, and the green background for the digital display is a nice contrast to the wood brown.  I also love how the contestant's name is on the check and it also has Drew Carey's signature on the check ready to go. 

Hopefully that game doesn't get retired.  It is a classic.

Drew's done a solid job once he shook off the jitters and made the hosting role his own.  Do I still miss Bob? Absolutely.  But as the old saying goes, "Nothing lasts forever."

Keep being cool, Drew.   And go Seattle Sounders! (For those unaware, he's a part of the team's ownership group).

Telephone Game is definitely one- it was retired because it was lame. Give or Keep was also retired because much of the staff didn't like it very much. I think Buy or Sell may be one other to add, I think I remember seeing Roger said it wasn't very popular among the staff.

I am hopeful that many here have come to acceptance with Drew now over the course of these past 10+ years now. I was always accepting of him in the beginning, but it took a few years down the road to see the difference between the mistakes and bad habits he had in the beginning and the way he does things much better now. May the show continue for a long time with Drew.

On the subject of that, my crew did a podcast on his first 10 years last night. If there's anything that should be added in further insight, I welcome the commentary.

Surprisingly no one has mentioned anything about this.  Finally, a reason to show off our insanity.  Good luck everyone.  Hopefully we'll see a winner here.
