1233: Don't worry Plinkoman, this stuff is only the tip of the iceburg. You win this, I'll take you to the clown vault backstage and you can take whatever you want, everything must go.  :-)

Now, is that kaleidoscope $18?


{flips tag}



{ding}

That's a good start. Now how much is the kite?



{flips tag}



{ding}


Beautiful, now why don't you takes these two Xs and put them on the board where they will help you the most?



{places on top and bottom left side spots}



Hopefully the X is anywhere but the bottom. Can we keep the perfect dream alive?




{presses button}




{ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}

Smack dab in the middle! Well done!

You're 4 for 4 and, like I promised, I'll show you the clown vault backstage while the next game gets set up.

Plinkoman, you've done great to get this far and your only two games and a showcase away from pulling off the feat.

Now take a look at what you could win now!

{RGC rises}

Announcer: First, we have great prizes for your living room!!



First, this 20" arched table lamp has a contemporary brown finish and a bisque colored shade. Then, this 4' long coffee table is made of manufactured wood and has a sleek black finish. Also, we have this 6' long cream colored sofa with high density polyurethane foam cushions!!

Finally, you might like to take a crack at...


{door 3 opens}

...this BRAND NEW CAR!!!!



This 2021 Dodge Challenger GT comes with all the standard equipment. It is also equipped with blacktop, plus and driver convenience packages and an engine block heater. The Dodge Challenger!!!




{loud cheers}

1233: Well that is definitely a nice muscle car, but we have to work our way up there playing More or Less

So first we have to get the lamp, then the table, then the sofa and finally the car. Now all you have to do is tell me if the actual price of each prize is more or less than the displayed price. You can go ahead and give me all of your guesses. Best of luck!!!

Nice job Plinkoman! Perfection!

Higher, Higher, Lower, Lower, I think. The Challenger is nice, but I don't think it touches $35,000.

"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

I was thinking MMLL before I saw your post; so, let's go two for two!

More
More
Less
Less

(This is helping get through 32-hours on call, so yay for pricing games!)

1233: You've got a whole site rooting you on, let's hope you can make it 2 for 2 on your own.

Now, you said the lamp was more than $600. And you are...



{pulls tag away}





{ding}

...correct! One down and three to go.

Now you said the coffee table is more than $1,500, and you are...





{pulls tag}





{buzz}

...not right. Aww, that really is a bummer



{reveals rest of prices}



Plinkoman, as the last player left with 3 games to go, you were up against it. However, you gave it a valiant effort and I applaud you. I hope you and everyone else enjoyed themselves.

All that being said...


{losing horns start blaring from the studio}

You collectively couldn't beat the house today, but you'll probably get another chance at some point.  :-)

So until next, sharpen those skills and try your hand again.

*Quick notes

-In my head, I wanted the first 4 games to be pretty tame and then MoL and the subsequent Check-Out to step it up a bit to earn

-CoG went about as expected, Blackout was supposed to be a gimme (can't have you guys lose an original game)

-I'll admit Line 'em Up was slightly hard with the 1 as the four digit, but I had no expectation of that result

-Overall, the show ended around when I thought it would, but with a lot less people than I expected

-Finally, thank you to everyone for joining and responding in a timely manner, 10 days from signups to finish was better than I could have hoped for

Numbers, this was a really good concept that I'd love to see again, as it's a lot of fun to let everyone play at once. Thanks for putting it together!

I concur with all the other players. It’s definitely a good way to play and it’s fun to see everyone testing his/her/their mettle again the house.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I had a fair amount of free time these last two weeks and its an idea I wanted to try but never got around to.

Also, probably goes without saying, but if anyone wants to put together a show using the format, knock yourself out.
