Title: Clearance Sale re-do idea
Post by: PIRfanSince72 on March 10, 2019, 02:13:18 PM
In reading about pricing game flops earlier, and also another thread on Clearance Sale itself, I thought of a proposal to amend it into a new pricing game called "On Sale".

As before, there would be 3 prizes and each would have a price attached to it.  Two of the three would be sales prices, but one would be a price marked higher than the actual retail price.

To win all 3 prizes, the player would have to pick both of the prizes that were on sale to win the game.  If they chose the prize that was marked up, they'd win nothing.

Just kind of a simple idea of a retooling for a 3 prize quicky.

It wouldn't be a bad idea and it would make it more unique from Eazy Az 123. It does makes me think of Super Saver as a three prize game instead of a GP game though too.

This game was called "Buy or Sell."

I created a two-prize game similar to this called "Marked Down". There would be two prizes with prices under them shown as well as a dollar amount in between the prizes (Example: $700.) One price is marked up $700 and one is marked down $700. To win, pick the prize that is marked down.  This was something I thought up during a time when there weren't too many quickie two-prize games, so it was not meant to be too complex, although this game easily be played for trips or even rarely for two cars.

Does anyone think Super Saver could work on today’s show

Why are we suddenly talking about Super Saver in a thread about Buy or Sell Clearance Sale?

/Anywho, prop-wise I'm not sure...I remember how many technical difficulties the original ran into. You could replace the eggcrate display with an LCD easily enough, but wasn't that the game that also had never-ending trilon problems?

If I'm remembering that right, and assuming they could design out that particular issue, I for one would love to see Super Saver back. It seemed like a fun game, and it doesn't seem like it took too long to play.

Because the rules of the clearance sale re do idea sounds very similar to Super Saver

I put it to you that that connection wasn't evident (to me anyway). Maybe next time explain your thinking a little more so the rest of us can follow. Otherwise your post can come across like a very random turn indeed.

The idea of choosing two prizes with prices shown below the retail price and one above is very similar to Super Saver's premise, even though in Super Saver you were trying to add up the savings to $1.00.

Thanks for that, I got it once rowlande explained it. I was just asking him to be clearer in the future, is all.

Not sure if this would really work very well, but maybe mark each prize with a sale price and give the contestant a 25% tag, 50% tag, and a 75% tag and determine for each sale price how much the actual price has been discounted by, i.e., a $4,000 item marked as $3,000 would get the 25% tag since it's been discounted by 25%.

Nope. Contestants had/have enough trouble with simple addition in Add 'em Up and Check Game...asking them to comprehend percentages is probably pushing it.

My version of "Clearance Sale" would be played for a large prize over $5,000 (which also could be played for a car) and played with four grocery items.
They are four price tags one of them is the "Sale Price". The object is pick the GP that has the sale price. If so, you win the prize, if not you have two do-overs.
The final do-over there are two GPs, one is a Sale Price the other is a non-sale price.
If the contestant picks the sale price, they win, otherwise the game is over and the losing horns will sound.

So... it's Quadruple Prices, except with a 3/4 chance of winning?

Doesn't that seem a little easy to you?

That's a terrible idea.
