The odd thing is the doors spun in the 1980s version, slid sideways in the brief 1989 revival, then spun again in the 1990s and 2000s versions.

Been catching up on some recent episodes from Portgual's series, and a few new(?) games that I haven't posted before caught my eye.

Danger Price


Goling - a game from the 2015 French series, where the contestant has to roll a ball through the path and land it on the hole/groove at the end of the path.  The most recent playing of this game was particularly embarrassing for the contestant: on their second roll, the contestant didn't even get the ball up the loop, then on their third and final roll, their "roll" was more an underarm lob that missed the path completely, bouncing once on the prop then away off camera along the ground.


Bowling


Walk The Line - same gameplay as the UK/Australian game



Also just wanted to point out how ridiculously cramped the current Hole In One staging is:

Drew would love the Bowling game to be brought over here. Portugal seems to have a thing for games with game/sport elements.

How big is the size of the Portugal set? It looks like every game you posted is played in the same space. That Mini Golf/Hole in One set couldn't be any smaller, it's like the original Let em Roll setup here.

For what it's worth, they've had both Danger Price and Walk the Line for a while -- I remember checking their uploads a couple years ago and seeing both of them.

I remember seeing walk the line on the Joe Pasquale Version of The Price is Right.

The Finland set makes me think of The New Price is Right 94 set, but with very low budget looking pricing games.

Some shots of the set and games from Spain's upcoming series.  They've only recently started taping.  The female assistant/model in the Hole In One shot is the host's stepdaughter.  Cliff Hangers has been mentioned in articles as one of the games. 

Many of these come from promo videos on the show's website and twitter account.

Some more games from Spain's current series.  It sounds like ratings aren't too great for it unfortunately.

Spain has some very nice sets I must say (though the human head on the mountain climber is pretty weird), but I do wonder why they make things so compact when it looks like the set overall is pretty large. Is the game in the last picture their version of Check Out?

Is there any particular reason why there are large arrows attached to the games?
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)
