Studio 41 - Play Along > CSS -- Chatroom Showcase Showoff

CSS Results for June 23


The last day of the CSS Open was good in that not even one player went over. It was not so good in that "GARRRRRRRF" became the word of the day, with only six players achieving sub-$10K differences overall. And your host isn't really in a position to point fingers on this as with a score of 73.75, he just barely escaped being TEH SUCK. :-D

Tricky things to price today... a trip to Bruxelles (French spelling) which was a great deal more than most of us expected, along with a boat in SC1, and then a dinky trailer (this one's almost 12K, though) and a notoriously difficult-to-price F150 in SC2.

NCC-2000 got the win today, BRB_TheFireball close behind, both of them earning money. Then there's the dreaded STAGE PLAYER, and then there's the rest of us.

Two days left in the season, and one of the nastier showcases possible. Let's hope for the Corvette next week!!!

Last Day of the CSS Open

I don't know what it is with the friggin' random boat showcases whenever I'm in the chatroom.  I turn out to be one of only three people who doesn't garf it.  :-P  :-D

The exact same thing happened on the last show of 2005 when Roger wheeled out that Australia and Catalina sailboat showcase worth almost $45,000.  Me, Robair, and Willy were the only ones who had the superballs to bid over $40,000 on it.  And, of course, I won that FRBS as well.

I'd say I did pretty good for my first year of playing CSS.  I won 4 showcases (2 FRBSs, 1 car showcase, 1 Splendido showcase) and got 1 points win.  Though my first year did have its downsides... such as my wasted $94 bid on a bust on the opposing showcase and my $55 overbid on the infamous $16,000-even furniture showcase.

See ya'll next season!  :-D

I was going to go up in the $29,000 range for the boat, but it just didn't seem that expensive. Trust your gut!

Of course, my gut for the truck was way off, so I just contradicted myself.  :lol:

I'd like to thank our fine hosts this year. This was kind of like Season 32 of The Price is Right, announcer-wise. We had someone start it out, had some people do it in the middle, and at the end, got a "permanent host".

I'm looking forward to when I play next year. Hopefully, I will learn to bid higher (and more wiser).
