Corinne will play a brand new pricing game for a 1976 Chevrolet Vega Station Wagon. What is this new game, you ask? It's THE DICE GAME!

In DICE GAME, a contestant attempts to use large red dice to roll the correct digits in the price of a car. The game was originally played for cars with four-digit prices and the first digit was not given. The contestant rolls four die, one at a time: if the number rolled matches the first digit, the digit is revealed and shown on both screens. Otherwise, the contestant must decide whether the digit is higher or lower than the roll and his or her selection is marked with an outline of lights. The prices of the cars could contain any digit between 0 and 9 in this first incarnation.

ROLL 1: 3- Is that right? NO!
Is the first number Higher or Lower than 3? Corrine says HIGHER.
ROLL 2: 4- Is that right? NO!
Is the second number Higher or Lower? Corrine says HIGHER.
ROLL 3: 6- Is that right? YES! 6!
ROLL 4: 5- Is that right? NO!
Is the last number Higher or Lower? Corinne says LOWER.

The first number is 4!
The second number is 1- LOSS!!
The third number is 6
The fourth number was 8!

The Car was $4,168
