For the record, I would've picked A, B, and X. It'd be interesting to see how that would've been adapted into a show, considering that they all fit together much better than B, D, and X.  :-D

Yeah, the quality of the first showcase's writing hinged a lot on the contestant's choices.  :-)

Also, to respond to our earlier inquiry, I will reveal all the unchosen options in detail at the conclusion of the show.

...now THIS is a showcase I like!

Numbers, I have a general idea on what I am bidding, but how many nights am I staying in Tokyo? For all I know, at the rate this show is going, I could be there from one day to one year! Granted, staying in Tokyo for a year actually sounds awesome, but I digress  :P
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

Just some quick notes about the unchosen options and the show in general

****************************************************

*Overall, the only thigs that were set in stone were the IUFB's and the game options/prizes. Originally, there weren't going to be any clues, but I felt that really didn't make it feel that you really were involved 

*Anyone who remembers my old shows knows that making the games easy wasn't my forte (it's a character flaw  ;-)). With this format, I was able to make both easy and hard setups.  The problem was that for two of the three segments (excluding Magic #), you chose the hardest option in my opinion.

*For the first game, if the opposite envelope was chosen (So You're Saying There's a Chance?), I was planning on going on a whole spiel about the odds of the contestant making it on stage at that particular moment. And then explain how the 1/720 odds of randoml winning It's In the Bag are nothing to worry about. What made IITB slightly easier, is that the salmon was going to be the extraneous product. The biggest part with this act is I buy a lot of fish and forgot that not everyone is me.  :-)

*For the part of the show that was supposed to be the slow point, Magic # was hilarious for me and hopefully you as well (sometimes, it takes someone duct taping your props to really open you eyes  :-)). BTW, the prop really does look better than it did before, so all the credit goes to TPIRfan#9821 for that

*The other option (One For Now, One For Later) as going to be Double Cross, with the clue being a reference to one prize being used now (in the summer) and one later (in the winter). The original clue I was going to use was "Flagged for Plagiarism", with a visual gag of the American Red Cross flag and the Switerland flag. They are pretty much the same except the colors are inversed and they both have crosses (two crosses = double cross?), but I thought it was a bit too convoluted

*For the last pricing game, the hardest option by far was picked in Gas Money, so the early bailout wasn't too out of the blue. For the first clue (Flair for the Dramatic), the light would have dimmed and a stereo backstage would have started playing Bonnie Tyler's hit "Total Eclipse of the Heart" (if you haven't heard it, do your self a favor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcOxhH8N3Bo  :lol: ). The iconic first words are "Turn around, every now and then..." and as those lyrics come out, Bonus Game set up for a win turns around on the turntable.

*For the third clue (Plant Based), there was a pile of small leaves that our unpaid stagehand had to come out and tell me were supposed to represent 7 four leaf clovers inside the envelope, signifying Lucky 7. The stagehand was then promptly fired. Also, since I'm not the biggest fan of the game, I couldn't bring myself to make the price any nicer than $27,885.

*Shockingly, the showcases were the most structured part of the whole show! With the way I wrote the clues, the theme fit almost perfectly, but not without some creative liberties (The Fancy and the Lazy was truly the only combo I didn't want to be chosen). Then, the leftover showcases made sense afterwards. The one envelope not used (Envelope Z), was actually as luxourious as the clue implied. It was a 2020 Volvo XC40 T5 Momentum AWD, but I didn't use it because I wanted the two showcases to be as close in value as possible, and the cheapest possible choices were picked in Showcase 1.

*So I was glad that I was able to try my hand at this again. Personally, I feel that half hour shows might be better as the general go to. Being able to get through a show in 1 week is much more enjoyable for everyone involved, than having it drag out. But that's just me.

Like I said earlier, thanks to all who signed up and participated. Also, don't forget to go and sign up for PatrickRox80's show right now if you haven't already. I'm going to do right now! :-D
