Did anyone notice an additional cymbol sound effect played with the losing horns when Danger Price was lost?  That was kinda' cool.  The game was hard, though.  I thought the stroller was screaming to be avoided.  And it's got nothing to do with why Mandy, specifically, lost, but who of us would have every guessed a random assortment of dinnerware could have such a neat, simple price like $999?  Random dinnerware just screams a screwy price like $843 or $1061 or such.

I can't believe Jessica won Magic Number!  Roger wasn't trying to get that won.  Good job, Jessica!

That's Too Much probably should've been won.  When did Jeep Wranglers become so hard for anyone to price?  Funny to see Drew jumping up and down with Jean, anyway.

Yay for seeing Flip Flop coming around!  I guess they figured since they've been doing it with Coming or Going, that Flip Flop is close enough :).

Danger Price: I thought the dinnerware would be more, and the stroller $999...but she should have gone with the clock & fridge first for sure.

What difference does it make which order she picked the prizes in?

Danger: Boy, how time flew on this one.  8-)

FlipFlop: $4389....Just not right.

STD:  :headbang:

Magic #: Very nice.

TTM: This one wasn't meant to be.

Side: Good win.

Showcases: I would've bid $19K on the Motorcycles showcase.

A 2.50-star show.

The average contestant can usually tell what prizes are over the danger price, which is usually low...
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Yay for Flip Flop spinning on the Turntable! :)

What the hell happened in Stack the Deck?!  That was one of the most bizarre playings I've ever seen.  It wasn't even that hard today...it was probably supposed to be won.

...which goes absolutely nowhere toward answering Frank's question.

Now how do you know that? That stroller thing looked more likely to be $999 than the random set of dinnerware which easily could have been $1100 or any price like that. I agree with what Frank said Danger Price was downright difficult today.

Firsts Things 1st,

  Danger price was SCREAMING to be  won today.. Common sense when playing Danger Price is "chose the 2 items that are LEAST LIKELY" to be the Danger Price.  Then work towards the 2 more difficult prices. 

  A baby scroller doesnt cost that much.   It was common sense to not choose the dinnerware.  Not to mention that she was either nervous or another adjective that I cant use in fear of getting "sensored". 

  "What are we bidng on, THAT"?   Come on , the prize was JUST shown 20seconds ago..lol

   What the hay? :-x  How on this earth doesnt know that Jeep Wranglers are between 20100-21000 at the most.  They are on the show every week.

How is it common sense to pick the two items that are least likely to be the danger price, then work toward the two more difficult prizes?  I'll ask a second time:  how does it matter what order the contestant picks the prizes in?  I also don't see how the game was screaming to be won:  I'd have avoided the stroller and lost.  And a lot of other people here agree that it was hardly the world's easiest playing.

Frank,

  That scroller as well as that dinner ware was on the show within the last 2 months.  Check the CBS TPIR Prize page.   I was taught that its better to "work what you know", save the hardest 2 choices "dinnerware and scroller" for last, giving you extra time to think, get audience reacts, notice the other prices , etc.  We all play TPIR differently, but we all love the show .  Thats what counts.

Since you acknowledge that we all have different strategies and ways of playing, and that both ways mentioned here are understandable, then you shouldn't really call your way the common sense way, though.

And I don't even have most of the prices memorized.  Most of the people on this site don't have most of the prices memorized.  What are the odds of Joe Plinko memorizing the dinnerware or stroller prices?
