Um, sure, I'm sheeping this logic, please don't steer me wrong 04.

I considered avoiding such an explanation for exactly that reason, I hope I'm right

Yeah, yeah, yeah. That hidden rule has been broken a couple of times this season so I thought you were trying to trick us :-x. That's what I get for overthinking :lol:. Good luck to everyone who's left!

1233: I honestly didn't even know they broke the rule this year. Funnily enough, they've only broken the "trip is always going" half of it, the "non-trip is always coming" has still been going strong since at least Season 45. These are the trends we live for.  :-)

Anyways...

{picks up blackout boards, hands them to TPIRfan#9821}

...why don't you give it a go? And this is a new game board, so let's try and avoid another Magic # incident, m'kay?




{9821 walks up to game board and turns back}





{looks directly at tpir04, follows their directions exactly}



{steps back to the group}







Next time, I'll save some time and cut out the middleman.

Now as long as both prices are still visible, you're a winner. Light it up!





...








{ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}
{cheers amongest the group}


Looks like most of you survived here, but its the end of the road for pathfinder20. Hope you had fun, and remember you can still play along and help your fellow players.

As for the rest of you winners, let's get out of the way so we can set up the next game

------------------

Congrats to all of you. You've made it past the "first commercial break" and have proven my claim at the start incorrect. That's enough glory for you guys, right? Why don't we call the whole thing off now?



...



Hmm, guess not. Then let's see what's up next. If you would so kindly, Mr. Announcer?

Announcer: Sure, I guess. First we have...


{door 3 opens}

...a new bike with accessories!!!




First, this rugged 21 speed mountain bike has a triple triangle aluminum frame and suspension fork. Then, this bolt on bike bell rings like any other bell ever made does. Also, we have this goggle-compatible bike helmet that has 17 vents and 2 internal airflow channels.

And, last but not least...


{door 2 opens}


...a BRAND NEW CAR!!!!



It's the 2021 Kia Rio LX!! This sterling silver vehicle comes with all the standard equipment as well as bumper applique and cargo mats. The Kia Rio!!

{cheers as we walk back to door 2}




Line 'em Up is the third game for you all to try and complete a perfect first half.

The first digit in the price is a 1 and the last digit a 5. I simply need you to complete the middle part using the bike stuff prices.

Now, in order for this to work out, I need each one of you in your post to give me 4 guesses as follows:

-an initial guess
-a second guess if you have 0 numbers right initially
-a second guess if you have 1 number right initially
-a second guess if you have 2 numbers right initially

I figure you guys won't have trouble with that, but I'll be here to help and correct if any of your second guesses don't line up. Best of luck!!

1233: {points to JarodJGames} I haven't called on you yet, come on over and line 'em up!



{pulls handles around}




Now I ask, is the car $17,295?





{buzz}

Ok, ok, all is still fine. How many of those three numbers are correct?



{ding}

According to your scale, I believe that earns a "Not Bad".  Now let's move up to "Spectacular and Victorious"

Step over there and change one number to win that car.



{moves last slider}



It's out of your hands now, and in the greasy hands of our announcer next to the car.

Flip the tag over and give us some winners!





{announcer looks down at unflipped tag}





Announcer: Uhh, umm...well I can definitely flip the tag, that's for sure.

1233: What?

Announcer: See for yourself.



{flips tag}




{buzz}

1233: Ouch, I felt that one in my soul. This right here folks is what we like to call an old-fashion bloodbath.

It's been great having you all on, but you are all collectively the weakest link. Goodbye.

Everyone except Plinkoman, that is. Congrats for surviving the carnage and having a perfect first half. The start of the second half is coming up after this list update.

{walks back to GPT}

Plinkoman, I have a confession. Line 'em Up did not go as planned. I expected some losses, but not that massacre.

But it's called a gauntlet for a reason, so let's keep it rolling. What's next, Mr. Announcer?

Announcer: Now we had a Halloween special a bit ago and we have some leftover, so feast your eyes on...

{turntable turns}

...this collection of clown memorabilia!!!



First, we have this 6 ft life size clown statue that sure to bring a smile, or tear, to your face. We also have this 2 ft square geometric clown painting that can bring together any room. Finally, we have this clown marionette puppet that is premium nightmare fuel, no doubt.

It's an unnerving prize package worth...$7,087!!!




{cheers}

1233: Nice, that stuff will finally be gone from backstage. I beg you to win this.  :-)

Now, in Secret X, there's an X somewhere behind these red spaces. I'm going to give you one free X and you'll have a chance to get 2 more if you know something about these small prizes.



Announcer: First, we have this 3 inch wooden kaleidoscope that has a glass prism lens. Then, this 16 inch rainbow box kite is made out of polyester and fiberglass. There you go, Numbers!



1233: Ok players, or I guess player, I need from you your initial X spot, your guesses for the small items and the order you will put your subsequent X's should you win them. Best of luck!!

Yikes! What a bloodbath!

Plinkoman, I would guess $18 and $35 respectively, and cover the middle and then the top—I don’t think Numbers would put it on the bottom and try to force a loss, but you never know for sure.

Wow. When I saw the other guesses I thought I'd be the sole loser. Maybe it's because Line 'em Up uses the same think music as Push Over.

You know you could've put some rodeo clowns in there just for me. (Not only do I work at rodeos, but I also have been a part of a clown act.)

My gut is the same as what gamesurf says; hopefully great minds will think alike!

First X in the top right corner.

$18 and $35

Second X in the bottom left corner. Third in the upper left corner.

For the first X, let's go bottom right corner. Price Guesses: $18 and $35. If correct on both, second X in bottom left, and third X in top left.
