Pricing Game Idea: Gone Fishin' (or Fishing Hole)
« on: September 15, 2021, 08:30:49 PM »
This is a pricing game idea that I've had in my head for a while. It may or may not be any good but here goes. This combines elements of Punch A Bunch and Spelling Bee but with a fishing theme. This would be played for a car/boat/truck and a lesser prize.

On the floor is a "pond" filled with 20 multicolored fish. In each fish is either a cash prize ranging from $500 to $2000 or one or both prizes. The contestant is given a magnetic fishing reel with which to "catch" the fish and given one free cast. The contestant can earn up to three more casts by guessing the price of three small prizes to within $10 of the Actual Retail Price.

After all that is said and done, the prizes hidden in the fish are revealed. If the first fish caught contains the car/truck/boat, the game is won automatically. However, if the first fish contains the lesser prize or any of the cash prizes, the contestant has the choice to either go home with whatever they've already won or keep going have for a higher value prize. This process is repeated for the other three fish. If all four prizes are revealed the contestant goes home with the highest value prize revealed, whether that be the car/truck/boat, the lesser prize, or any of the cash prizes.

That's about the gist of it. What do you people think?

That's not a half bad idea. Does the game end if the car/truck/boat fish is caught before all four fish are claimed?

Yes. As I said, the contestant would go home with the highest value prize they caught. So if that happens to be the car/truck/boat, the game would end in a win.
