572 viewsThe first permanent hour-long show from October 1975 also saw the first winner in Golden Road.

57_Superball.jpg
747 viewsAn exciting finish to 'Superball!' The contestant landed the superball into the 'win' circle. A win with the superball was always exciting because the big doors would open one after the other as the audience cheered.

622 viewsHere's the big wheel, with original pink dollar logo design and green sections, from early 1986.
69_PhoneHome.jpg
741 viewsThe 'Phone Home Game' involved a home contestant and an on stage player. Here, the contestant didn't want to look at the amount Barker was about to reveal because she was afraid she'd missed the product that could have earned $10,000. Unfortunately, she was proven right. But in the end, the two players split $5,000.
73_bonus.jpg
625 viewsBefore the greens and the metallics took hold, and well before the game was christened, the Bonus Game was a melange of tans and oranges with a black border. And it was played about every three days. The game is played less frequently now, but the board retains its now-classic look.

698 viewsThe original Give or Keep board colorway. All the early game boards had a fixed frame design and different internal mechanisms, and varying depths depending on game mechanisms.Bonus Game, Give Or Keep, Any Number, Bullseye I, Clock Game, 2-Player Auction, and Double Digits (the first board to sport a game name) all had the same basic frame design. Money Game was an elongated variation, and Mystery Price was the first to debut a distinct design.

747 viewsThis is the original design for Most Expensive, the first of the game's three designs. If the signs look familiar, these are three of the four light stands used in the Five Price Tags game. A fourth price tag, not sporting a shelf for the price tag, was added for the 5PT game, and the 1-2-3 numbers were removable overlays. The bases with the red arrow motif were eventually redesigned, without shelves since Most Ex had gotten "dedicated" props.

654 viewsIn the first couple of playings of Bullseye, a player could only try to hit the target with the hidden bullseye with the closest item to the target. In this playing, the game's second, the one closest did not have the target behind it, and the one second closest did. The rules were later changed so that any target that hit the bullseye could still win the game.

510 viewsAnd the Bullseye range was originally $9 to $10, close to what it is today. That alone made the game harder when many prices of items were still 79 cents and 59 cents.
